Since being elected, the Harper government has the labor movement in its sights. According to him, we build a strong economy with low wages and putting workers at the mercy of their employers.
Bill C-377 is a direct attack on the labor movement. The main idea behind this bill is to muzzle workers' organizations. C-377 will also be very costly for Canadians and require a lot of bureaucracy. The Parliamentary Budget Officer estimates that its costs will be much greater than the $ 2.4 million provided by the Canada Revenue Agency.
The NDP opposed vigorously this bill. Alexandre even made a filibuster in committee. When we form government, we will abolish C-377.
