Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank you for recognizing me on a point of order.
Earlier, during question period, the Minister of Labour gave an unsatisfactory answer.
In a letter addressed to the federal minister, the Quebec labour minister talked about the urgency of the situation in the following terms:
This bill would therefore establish a precedent that opposes the principles and administration of labour relations in Quebec and, according to some experts, would also constitute a violation of the division of powers in this area.
I seek the unanimous consent of the House for the following motion: That, notwithstanding any Standing Order or usual practice of the House, the taking of the deferred recorded divisions on the motion at report stage and at third reading of Bill C-377, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (requirements for labour organizations) be deferred until after a meeting of the Minister of Labour of Canada and the Minister of Labour of Quebec.
