Mr. Speaker, I am glad to have had this matter raised.
As we went through the amendments to Bill C-19, we did put in place some protection to make sure the grain would go through. Let us remember that is the Canada Labour Code. The workers who are at an impasse today are under the Public Service Staff Relations Act and therefore are not affected by that.
If the government were really sincere about never having the flow of grain interrupted again by anybody, the simple solution would be to let those public servants be covered by the Canada Labour Code, not the Public Service Staff Relations Act. This is exactly what they have been asking for for decades. The Public Service Alliance of Canada wants to be under the Canada Labour Code. We would not have any more grain problems because this would be covered under Bill C-19.
