As you may have heard, the Finance Committee recently started its study of Bill C-377. On Thursday, October 25th, 2012, we held our first official information session. Russ Hiebert, the sponsor of the Bill, was invited to explain his position. Needless to say, we were not convinced.
In addition to Mr. Hiebert, we also heard multiple presentations which strongly outlined the many problematic elements of Bill C-377. We wish to acknowledge the important contributions made by Ken Georgetti, President of the Canadian Labour Congress, Robert Blakely of the AFL-CIO, Michael Mazzuca of the Canadian Bar Association and Prof. John Logan, an expert in the field of labour relations.
