There has got to be a way to get around this — perhaps some sort of long-term lease, so the construction (other than the transit terminal itself) is the developer’s project, not the Region’s? I’m not generally anti-labor, but the outcome of the ways these laws are set up is idiotic, and the behaviour of union people who are not opposed to what happened is ethically disappointing.

The plan is (and has been for a long time) to sell the land to the developer and rent back the transit part.

Right.  In which case it's not a regional project, and the developer is not bound by the region's rules.
