TIFF is a busy time here in Toronto, normally associated with glamour. So hotel workers at the Royal York took the opportunity to grab some of the limelight by staging a strike.

Celebrity Martin Sheen, a guest staying at the hotel, even decided to take a few minutes to strike with them. One striker got Sheen and his son, Emilio Estevez, to autograph his strike placard.

Now, I haven't been on a lot of picket lines before but these guys actually stopped picketing to break for lunch and they didn't seem to have a problem letting people cross the picket line. I thought this was a little weird, but it seemed to work for them.
