Carnegie Hero Fund Commission  Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the courageous and selfless actions of a constituent, Liam Bernard from Waycobah First Nation in Cape Breton. On September 16, 2016, Ralph Chrisman's pickup truck left a rural highway near Melford, Nova Scotia. Mr. Chrisman was pinned in hi

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, this may not come as a surprise that I agree with very little of what the member across has said. I believe that both ministers have been on this file and have been focused on this file. For a year, these negotiations have gone on. Our federally appointed mediators w

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, that is what happens when parliamentarians get involved in these types of debates. Those types of stories become reality, and that is not a fact. I know the CUPW members have made it a priority to make sure that people who depend on their cheques get them. That is no

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, I will be splitting my time with the member for Mirabel. Obviously strikes and lockouts are always a last resort for both workers and the company. When they happen, they will always affect not only the workers and the company, but customers, suppliers, communities a

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, I know that my friend is fair-minded, and I would hope that he would see the difference. When the Conservatives brought forward their back-to-work legislation, they had rigged the game for Canada Post from the outset. They brought in a final-presentation arbitrator

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, that gives me an opportunity to finish sharing the guiding principles. As my colleagues know, I talked first about health and safety, and I shared that with my friend. It would be one of the guiding principles of the mediator or arbitrator that would have to be abi

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, the member referenced ILO Convention 98. We are the government that ratified that convention, something that has been advocated for 40 years. We signed that convention. We absolutely believe the best way to get to a deal is for both sides to sit down and hammer out a

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, having sat in the House with the member for quite some time now, I always get a chuckle out of Conservatives when they start to bring up the use of closure by this government. We are only pikers when we look back at how the Conservatives used that particular standing

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, my apologies to the member. Obviously, he did not have the benefit of hearing the guiding principles of this legislation and the fact that—

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, allow me to read into the record once again the guiding principles of this legislation. Again, we have taken a different tack with regard to arbitrators than the Conservatives did with their legislation in 2011. As a matter of fact, the first arbitrator they appointe

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, some people have started their speeches by saying they are pleased to join in the debate. Make no mistake that it is difficult. The NDP likes to characterize it as something less than that, but members should be assured that this is an action this government has not

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, I always enjoy when my colleague from Skeena—Bulkley Valley shares his words with this House, except when one is on the receiving end of them, and then it is not that much fun. However, I know him to be a fair and reasonable member of Parliament. He was here in 2011

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Madam Speaker, obviously, it is a difficult decision for any government to enter into back-to-work legislation. That is the position we have been placed in, and it certainly is not an action that we take lightly. The website for the Canadian Foundation for Labour Rights lists b
