Well, there we have it. The Conservative government has just rammed Bill C-377, legislation which will saddle unions with ridiculously detailed, costly financial reporting requirements, through the House of Commons. The bill was successfully voted in by MPs on Wednesday evening, by a margin of 147 to 135. - Conservative government rams through anti-union Bill C-377 December 13, 2012
The bill had little debate and was rushed through the House of Commons. The Senate has been dealing with Bill C-377. In second reading Senator Elaine McCoy (last Progressive Conservative Senator left in the Senate) had to say ...
Bill C-377 is so audacious, so mendacious, so outrageous, that I can really only think of one twosentence review, and in this I am paraphrasing Dorothy Parker, whom many honourable senators will know. She once said in her two-line book review: “This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”This comment of hers is attributed to a book written by Mussolini called The Cardinal's Mistress. Let me paraphrase Dorothy Parker: This is not a bill to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force. - Senator Elaine McCoy, May 2, 2013, Excerpt of Debates of the Senate (Hansard)
