The war in Wisconsin
What does all of this have to do with Canada?
In the past two weeks, major news outlets have published columns echoing the Tea Party attack on unions.
Don't expect guys like the Koch brothers to stay out of Canada's politics. They may already be funding the Wildrose Alliance and Tory leadership candidates in Alberta. (We can't know for sure, because both parties refuse to reveal their donors).
So, be prepared for the war on unions and the middle class to move north.
And of course Alberta is the home to the Anti-Climate Change lobby so the Koch Brothers will feel right at home
