Mr. Speaker, I listened with interest to my colleague's passionate speech. He has a real way with words.
The current situation involves two fairly powerful entities: the Canada Post Corporation and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.
The market is dominated by these two entities. It is not a market where there are thousands of mail carriers. We know that the union speaks for unionized workers and management speaks for Canada Post, but who is speaking for small business people?
I am talking about those that are so small that they cannot even be incorporated. They are registered and travel around in their little car, which they use to provide services and work in their field. Who speaks for small and medium-sized businesses and small business people if not the House of Commons? Members are elected to the House by Canadians, including workers from across the country.
