Mr. Speaker, with this special legislation, the Liberals are putting on a sordid display of cynicism and political betrayal.
In 2011, the Conservatives introduced an identical bill. One outraged MP said, “We have the hard right ideologues in the government jamming the union with legislation...” Who said that? It was the Liberal member for Scarborough—Guildwood. If the shoe fits, wear it. Seriously, it was a hard right proposal coming from the Conservatives, but the Liberals are no better. The Liberals are showing their true colours.
How do they reconcile attacking workers' rights with defending the middle class? Since when has that been okay?
