Christian union donates 80 turkeys to CBC's turkey drive. They’re also sweet on management

While the government plays Santa Claus with your money this Christmas on its collision course with prolonged recession and New Deal socialism, the Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) show us what real kindness and generosity looks like.

The labour union has donated 80 turkeys to Edmonton's Food Bank as part of the CBC's 13th Annual Turkey Drive, on behalf of its members.

"The CBC's Annual Turkey Drive is a wonderful cause that represents the Christmas spirit of selfless giving," said Paul deJong, CLAC's Alberta Provincial Director. "Thanks to the generous support of Save-On Foods, CLAC joins other Edmontonians in providing some Christmas cheer to our fellow citizens in need," deJong added.

CLAC is an independent Canadian labour union representing more than 47,000 workers based on Christian social principles. It’s approach to labour relations stresses worker freedom, participation, and dignity – and the organization strives to achieve a “balance between individual and collective rights.”

Read “Labour for the Lord” by Terry O’Neill to find our why this fast-growing Christian union with a love-thy-managers approach to labour relations is drawing the wrath of less merciful Canadian unionists.

While I admire CLAC's generosity, why are they supporting those fascist heathens at the CBC?

"The CBC's Annual Turkey Drive is a wonderful cause that represents the Christmas spirit of selfless giving," said Paul deJong, CLAC's Alberta Provincial Director.

Not surprisingly the Punk questions a CBC Christmas charity and a Christian Association that gave them something for the less fortunate. He represents the typical Albertan attitude of being a miser.

The CBC doesn't do charity; it only condemns others for not being so. It's the Hypocrisy Channel. Disband the CBC immediately!

The Punk would like to see the CBC disbanded immediately so the CBC's Annual Turkey Drive would not be able to provide a Christmas dinner to some of our less fortunate citizens. This just shows that Albertans are a bunch of misers and have no compassion for the less fortunate during the Christmas season. Bah humbug to Albertans.
