Barbara Yaffe, Vancouver Sun, anti-union hacks

Barbara Yaffe is a columnist in the Vancouver Sun. Halfways intelligent, she nevertheless has some serious ideological blindspots when it comes to unions. Her recent column merely parroted a report from the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, a "conservative/libertarian think-tank" (their words, not mine) in Winnipeg.

The report claims public sector wages have outgrown private sector wages over the past 11 years, by a substantial amount. spartikus over at The Exile properly takes the report apart (The Fraser Institute B Team) and calls out Yaffe and the Vancouver Sun for their ineptitude.
