Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  Sure, Mr. Housefather. Thank you very much for the question. It's fair to say that our offices in the U.S. have the ear of some influential members of Congress and influential members of the Senate.

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  I could take a shot at the beginning. Maybe you can repeat the second part of the question.

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  Our brothers and sisters and the leadership of North America's Building Trades Unions are aligned with supporting Canadian workers.

Economic Relationship between Canada and the United States committee  We certainly are working with our counterparts in Washington, D.C. I'll be interested to hear what Ken has to say, because his is also an international union. I can also add that the Canadian embassy has been very active on this file as well and has reached out to the leadership

Human Resources committee  Those are great questions. I can't answer the question with respect to system designs and computers and so on.

Human Resources committee  Thank you very much for the question. I do remember the accident that you're referring too. Unfortunately, I'm sure that each member would be able to point to an example of a similar accident in their own riding. I think it's important to recognize that generally construction i

Sean Strickland

Human Resources committee  Thank you very much for the question. It's a very important issue for the construction industry. The only really substantive data provincially on this is from Ontario.

Human Resources committee  I know Arlene's been active on the small modular reactor file as well. That's something we're really encouraged about. It is related to my remarks in terms of transitioning workers from the traditional oil and gas energy sector into the new energy projects of the future. Projec

Human Resources committee  Apprentices have to go through an in-school portion for training. Depending on your trade, it dictates how much in-school training you have. In various jurisdictions in Canada we have what are called compulsory trades. Examples are tower crane operators, mobile crane operators,
