    The 140th Canadian National Exhibition opened Friday morning amid labour controversy as union members representing locked-out stagehands shouted over the premier and mayor’s remarks at the opening ceremonies.

    The voices of picketing union members could be heard nearby as Mayor John Tory acknowledged the protest ahead of the opening. Even though visitors may have to cross the picket lines, he told the crowd, “Many, many families are going to come down here and have a good time.”

    Work for about two bucks an hour or not att all.......

    As an aside, I wonder how many $100 burgers will be sold.
