Union bosses in British Columbia are going to court to take on Premier Gordon Campbell's election gag law.
So I wrote a column which appears in today's Vancouver Sun, to ask them: What took you guys so long?
Gag laws, after all, have been around at the federal level for a long time.
Up until now, however, union bosses and other leftist-leaning types thought they were a good idea because they supposedly stopped the "rich" from buying elections.
But in BC, Campbell's law will stifle union bosses, so suddenly gag laws are a bad thing and must be stopped.
I suspect other left-wing groups will also realize gag laws are bad thing when the next federal election rolls around and they are prevented from speaking out against the Harper government.
Too bad their ideological blinkers prevented them from seeing the dangers of these laws when they were first enacted.
