Employees on the whole lack both the bargaining power and the information necessary to achieve more favourable contract provisions than those offered by the employer
— Katherine Swinton
Work is one of the most fundamental aspects in a person’s life, providing the individual with a means of financial support and, as importantly, a contributory role in society. A person’s employment is an essential component of his or her sense of identity, self-worth and well-being
— Supreme Court of Canada
Jacques Plante, once asked, "How would you like a job where, every time you make a mistake, a big red light goes on and 18,000 people boo?"
— The late Justice Randall S. Echlin
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
