Mr. Speaker, I am following very closely the situation at Ogilvie Mills Limited and the plight of its workers. I do hope that these workers will reach an agreement with the employer.
As regards the use of scabs, my predecessor said in this House that the government was examining the issue. We are looking at the Canada Labour Code as a whole, to see how it could be improved, and that includes the issue of replacement workers. We are consulting with both corporate employers and workers' representatives to discuss the issue.
Consequently, the issue is currently being examined and we hope to come up with a satisfactory solution.
