The Calgary Herald is reporting that "Union leaders say they were blindsided by news last week that the city plans to require employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or face possible disciplinary measures or dismissal from the job. The heads of two of the city’s largest unions say a Friday email from city officials announcing the mandatory vaccination policy ran counter to months of discussions with workers. That was not any of the conversations that we’ve been having with the city literally for months,” Lanovaz said. “All of the conversations we had, they were heading in a different direction and in 24 hours it flipped.”
Firefighters hour of silence. "It's not about vaxxed or unvaxxed. It's about the freedom of choice."
Anybody want to bet that this peaceful protest by front line workers makes it into mainstream media reporting? I didn't think so.— Maggie 🇨🇦 (@maggieoutabout) September 7, 2021

These are Health Care Workers from last week. Do we support them? Do they matter?
