Local transit guru Steve Munro has made some very insightful comments about the strike here. I totally agree with him in that the way it was done was very amateurish, i.e.: the union president (Bob Kinnear, I believe) couldn't be found for comment for a good part of the day. If you're going to have a wildcat strike, at least be available for the positive and negative repercussions, and to keep the public up to date.
I took a subway ride on the Bloor-Danforth line at about 9:30 this evening, and it was sweet. Let's not take out transit (flawed though it may be) for granted.
