Last week, we reported Bruce Hallsor, the legal mind behind numerous conservative causes across the province, was preparing to launch a class action lawsuit against the British Columbia Teachers' Federation. But would that lawsuit receive funding from Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which is presently financing a similar action against the Hospital Employees Union? On Public Eye Radio, we posed that question to the taxpayers' British Columbia director Sara MacIntyre who told us "That's been an issue that we've been examining over the past few days as an organization. What we learned from the HEU case, of course, is that these suits are not inexpensive. They require a significant amount of resources. And we have to make sure we're able to do that and see it through. We're not just going to pick it up and drop it in a couple of months...I'd say probably we should have some definitive answer for you Sean by Tuesday morning or so."
