Mr. Speaker, the last petition is on behalf of the rural route mail carriers of Canada who wish to inform the House that they earn less than minimum wage in working conditions reminiscent of another era. Section 13.5 of the Canada Post Corporation Act prohibits the rural route mail carriers from having collective bargaining rights and are not under the Canada Labour Code. Therefore the petitioners pray upon parliament to repeal section 13.5 of the Canada Post Corporation Act.
In the House of Commons on May 12th, 1999. See this statement in context.
