Madam Speaker, I have great respect and admiration for the member.
We are not taking sides in this. We are not saying we are supporting one side or the other. We are encouraging both sides to come to an agreement.
What makes this situation different is the economic harm, as well as the health and safety of Canadians. We know that a full work stoppage is going to have an impact that we cannot be responsible for, which is what mandates us to take action. This is on top of having a year of fighting a pandemic, where supply chains are already compromised.
We cannot stop the flow of goods. We must act for the safety of Canadians.
