Today, The Vancouver Sun reported "a bid for a class action lawsuit by patients whose health care was interrupted and delayed by an illegal Hospital Employees Union strike moved forward Monday. The Supreme Court of B.C. rejected an application from the HEU to quash an earlier decision of the Labour Relations Board that declared last year's strike by more than 40,000 health support workers illegal. That means the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which is organizing and funding the lawsuit on behalf of affected patients, can proceed with efforts to have the lawsuit certified as a class action." Public Eye broke that story on Friday - the day the decision was, in fact, handed down.
