Police investigating assault at Port Arthur Clinic picket line

City police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man in connection with an assault on the Port Arthur Clinic picket line.

Police, in a release issued Friday, say the incident occurred Tuesday morning when a man was leaving the Port Arthur Clinic with his daughter.

A female picket stood in front of the man’s car and asked to speak to him, but when the driver refused he was approached by a male on the picket line and stuck in the face.

The suspect is described as a man standing five-feet-ten-inches and weighing about 190 pounds. He has short brown hair and was wearing white shorts and a red t-shirt.

Police are looking to speak to any witnesses to this altercation. Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.P3tips.com. – Tbnewswatch

First illegally shutting the clinic. Then vandalizing the electricity connection. Now striking a patient’s relative in the face.  Yup….and this is all being done for the good of the patients?

Does the union expects the doctors to give in to extortion?  The union expects public support for this behaviour?   All this does is make unions look like a bunch of goons.  Will unions never move passed that?  I guess not.

What kind of work place environment is going to result from this strike?  Do you think that the clinic and the strikers will be one happy family once this strike is all over?  If it will ever be over?  Can’t see it.

Still waiting for the baseball bats.

I believe there is a place for unions in today’s economy.  This is not it.
