Finance committee  My home department is the Canada Revenue Agency, and a lot of the inequities we see in the country are economic inequities. Until we get a good grasp of that and make sure that all loopholes are closed, the wealthy are going to keep getting wealthier and, unfortunately, those who

Finance committee  Absolutely. When you see that, when you see bonuses being paid out, when you see executive bonuses and performance bonuses being paid out in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars, and you have thousands of people dying in those facilities, I can't see how we as Canadians

Finance committee  It's extremely important. Even our own members say it: When are we going to get this pharmacare? I mean, there was a commission installed by this government. That commission said we need a national pharmacare program in this country, and unfortunately.... Look, I know that the p

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Julian. Absolutely. As you know, Revera, as I said in my statement, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the public service pension plan, which we find absolutely appalling. It's worth quite a bit of money, actually. Yes, we want our members' pension plan invested in

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair and members of the committee. My name is Chris Aylward and I'm the national president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada. We represent 210,000 workers across Canada, most of whom work in the federal public service, but we also represent workers in the

Government Operations committee  Thank you for that, Debi. Yes, it's a great question. Last fall, the Public Service Alliance of Canada negotiated a settlement for [Technical difficulty—Editor] suffering. That happened last fall. We had an opinion from the CRA saying that they believed those monies were taxa

Government Operations committee  There are a couple of things that have to happen. First of all, the rapid testing has to remain a priority. If we're going to start putting non-critical workers back into the workplace, that has to remain a priority. I can tell you, getting workers back into the workplace is not

Government Operations committee  Thank you, Mr. McCauley. I'll start this off. We have hearing dates. Our policy grievance was denied by Treasury Board. It has since been sent to the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board. We asked for an expedited hearing. We have hearing dates now, star

Government Operations committee  As Ms. Daviau said, we can't put an exact number to this, for sure. You are right, Mr. McCauley, that it is up to individual managers to approve or deny leave. That's one of the unfortunate parts of this, as we've seen. I can tell you, though, that the numbers are far lower th

Finance committee  Mr. Gerretsen, I can't answer that in a very honest way. All I can tell you is that I've checked with our members at ESDC to see if anybody there was consulted and, to my knowledge, nobody there was spoken to about a new program and do we have the capacity, can we do this, how e

Finance committee  Thank you, Mr. Gerretsen. I know you have met with many members of the PSAC, and I thank you for that.

Chris Aylward

Finance committee  Yes, absolutely. Thank you, and the north is my favourite part of this country, Mr. McLeod. Let me make it very clear. We represent over 15,000 workers in the north, including, of course, the governments of Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut. I've visited the north many t
