”He’s (Trudeau) bringing a sledgehammer to deal with negotiations. By doing so, he’s undermined negotiations. I don’t understand what part of Canadians have the right to free and fair collective bargaining this prime minister doesn’t understand…(applause),” said Singh as a group striking postal workers cheered.
Meanwhile, MPs could vote on the legislation late tonight.
The Senate’s also passed a motion to sit this weekend.
If the Upper Chamber passes the bill, it would likely receive royal assent Sunday or Monday and become law at noon the next day.
