Today in censorship

The NatPost's Jonathan Kay blogs a letter from the ever-popular Canadian Union of Postal Workers threatening to, at some unspecified time, block mail shipments to Israel.
Any postal worker who does so should be fired.
If CUPW wants to make political statements, the union must do it on its own time. It has no business censoring the mails, which belong to the government of Canada, not the union. As well, we have treaties with Israel and most other countries including some of the most truly repressive on earth, promising we'll deliver the mail.
