Mr. Speaker, I thought I was being rather temperate under the circumstances.
The government has brought in a bill which is going to directly affect thousands of workers who have absolutely nothing to do with the emergency at hand and nothing to do with the problem which we are going to have to resolve. In effect, it is probably going to force a lot of people who would not otherwise want to do so to vote to relieve people of their bargaining rights to solve a problem in one corner of the labour movement.
This is absurd. It is wrong. It is mean and it is Machiavellian. That is the only way I can describe it. I hope the hon. member for Brandon—Souris really had that in mind. I think that is what I got out of his speech. I would like him to confirm that.
