The show must go on — according to Belinda New, the film theatre supervisor at the Regina Public Library in Saskatchewan.

An arbitrator agreed, after New filed a grievance against the library for a three-day suspension relating to misconduct during a strike.

The Regina Public Library cited the reason for New’s suspension as "culpable misconduct, specifically dishonesty, fraud, insubordination and breach of trust."
