There's an interesting article in the National Post today exposing how union bosses in Alberta are mounting a massive ad campaign to defeat Premier Ed Stelmach.
Politically this probably won't hurt Stelmach and the Tories.
In fact, it might help them -- in politics it's just as important to have the right enemies as it is to have the right friends.
The real problem with this campaign is that union bosses are using forced dues to finance it.
Simply put, it's wrong to compel unionized employees to pay for a political agenda they might not support.
