Time for politics 101 in Canada:
Trudeau is Liberal as you probably know and they don’t want to push unions to much.
So they may drag on a special session to legislate them back to work.
In the election in October Trudeau did not win one seat in Alberta or Saskatchewan – all Progressive Conservative except 1 NDP in Edmonton.
The West is alienated because the votes are all in Ontario and Quebec, so more is done for those two provinces to stay in power.
Yes I am also biased, but if you followed any of the politics about the SNC scandal, oil pipelines or transfer payments, etc the West definitely has a case for all the concerns.
Thus if he does not do something sooner rather than later, he looks like he is further alienating the West / Prairie Provinces.
There is already a push called Wexit, for the Alberta province (and who ever else in the West want to join) to break away from Canada.
He definitely hopes CN and the Union settle very fast on their own, so he does not need to do anything and risk peeving one of the groups off.
It will be interesting to see what he does or how it plays out. I totally agree, we hope it settles fast and they get back to work as it is not good for any industry if it drags on and definitely not our grain or the canola crushers
