Mr. Speaker, the second petition I am honoured to table is on behalf of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada.
Public servants in the greater Toronto area are concerned by the Canada Revenue Agency service modernization initiative that will cause significant disruptions and hardships to many workers. This change has been green-lighted without meaningful consultation, and will result in a number of things, including relocation for some, longer commutes, and greater challenges for many employees who need child care, or care for an elderly family member.
Forcing public servants to scatter across Canada's largest city to their own detriment contradicts the government's promise to promote a healthy work-life balance for public service workers.
I am proud to present their petition today.
I would like to wish all my colleagues and my constituents, and especially you, Mr. Speaker, happy holidays and a happy new year.
