Strike Over?

6:21pm — Sexy update! — VIA Rail has extended it’s discount ticket offer to end of day Friday!

The striking city workers have announced a tentative deal with the city, which apparently allows all sides to claim a victory on sick days — workers can’t bank any more sick days, but any already banked days will be maintained with the option to cash them out early.

In other strike news, VIA Rail announced 60% off all Canadian destinations through to Dec 14 if you book online before Wednesday at midnight, as an apology for the inconvenience of last weekend’s strike. Just sayin’ Montreal’s DiversCite is on until Sunday, and it’s a long weekend.
