Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. Minister of Veterans Affairs for the good work he does for Canadian veterans.
This debate is really about our constituents. I received a letter from one of my constituents named Anne, who stated:
This whole situation has been an nightmare for our Chilliwack family. My husband delivers parcels for a group who are subcontracted to Canada Post, and since the lock out, he too has been locked out and had no work....We have two Elementary school age children, and find it hard to make ends meet as it is. So far my husband has already lost a week's worth of wages, which we depend on...
This is just one family in my riding that has already lost a week of wages because of this dispute. Could the minister explain the urgency of acting quickly to ensure this is not repeated across the country?
