Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. member for his question.
A senior Public Service Alliance of Canada spokesman, John MacLennan, said the following about putting injured veterans at the front of the line: “It's not right.... It's disrespectful to public servants, topping up opportunities for veterans...”.
Big union bosses do not like helping injured veterans get federal public service jobs if they are qualified, which we, of course, are putting forward.
Will the opposition parties follow their big union bosses and vote against the hiring veterans act?
