Senators Debating Back To Work Legislation For Canada Post Workers

Bill C-89 passed in the House of Commons with 166 votes in favour, and 43 against.

The Canadian Senate is working on a weekend – something very rare for them – to debate legislation ordering Canada Post workers back to work.

The legislation passed the House of Commons 166-43.

Only the NDP voted against it.

The bill is expected to pass the Senate, with neither the Liberals or Conservatives seeking to block it.

Did you notice how the msm reported that “the House voted to order the postal workers back”? No headline stated,”the Trudeau Government orders the postal worker back”, which would have been what they said if the Harper government had ordered them back to work, with a sub heading calling Harper a control freak..

It’s not Trudeau’s fault, or the Liberals, see, it’s “the House”. That’s the kind of headlines you get when you bribe the media.

btw,where were the other 129 MP’s who didn’t cast a vote on this?
