Fonction publique et fonctionnaires, Syndicats, Troisième lecture et adoption

Madam Speaker, I think that the Canadian public believe in the strength of unions. They believe that unions serve an important role in our society and that without unions we would not have many of the rights we have today. We would not have two-day weekends and 40-hour weeks. I think the Canadian public recognizes the value of unions and did not appreciate the tax on unions by the previous Conservative government.

Madame la Présidente, je crois que le public canadien croit à la force des syndicats. Il comprend que les syndicats jouent un rôle important dans notre société et que, sans eux, nous n'aurions pas tous les droits que nous avons aujourd'hui. Nous n'aurions pas les fins de semaine de 2 jours ni les semaines de 40 heures. À mon avis, le public canadien comprend la valeur qu'ont les syndicats et il rejetait la taxe que l'ancien gouvernement conservateur leur avait imposée.
