House poised to debate, vote on budget and vote on Nadeau's anti-scab private member's bill

Lobby for and against Bloc's private member's bill C-257 banning replacement workers during a strike heats up as House gets set to vote on it at third reading on Wednesday

The lobby for and against the Bloc Québécois' private member's bill banning replacement workers during a strike has heated up as the House gets set to vote on it at third reading this Wednesday. National unions have stepped up their campaign to pass the bill while business associations have been working on appeals to MPs to kill the bill now that the bill's fate is unclear. The bill, C-257 introduced by Bloc MP Richard Nadeau (Gatineau, Que.), passed at second reading by an all-party vote in favour 167 to 101 last month. This included 20 Conservative MPs, 70 Liberals and all NDP and Bloc Québécois.
