June 7 strike date?

Howdy!

Last week I made fun of Pierre Theberge and the management at the National Gallery of Canada. This week it gets slightly more serious, as their blockbuster summer spectacular show is opening on June 8. The last time there was a strike at the National Gallery these were the shows affected:
  1. Ousmane Sow: June 24, 2001 - September 3, 2001
  2. Gustav Klimt - Modernism in the Making: June 15, 2001 - September 16, 2001
  3. With Kind Regards... Canadian Souvenir View Albums: May 9, 2001 - December 28, 2001
  4. Kiakshuk: Images by a Hunter-Artist: April 26, 2001 - January 6, 2002
  5. The Engraved Passion of Dürer: April 11, 2001 - July 15, 2001
  6. Théophile Hamel: Dominick Daly O’Meara: March 23, 2001 - September 3, 2001
  7. Italian Drawings from Canadian Collections: February 16, 2001 - May 27, 2001
They finally settled the strike in time to open this show (I would imagine that there were some fairly important politicians who wanted to see it).
