Madam Speaker, my question is a bit hypothetical, but I think the answer would be instructive.
How long would the hon. member allow a strike to go on? Would he allow it to go on indefinitely? Does he not agree that there could come a time when the negative impacts of a strike are too great on very small businesses, perhaps even one-person operations? How long would he let it go? At what point would he say it is hurting too much and how would he know it is hurting too much? Where would he get his information from? The NDP is saying this strike is not hurting the small business sector, but who told him it is not hurting the small business sector?
