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.

While initially seeming unwilling to get involved in the dispute between postal workers and Canada Post, the Trudeau Liberals clearly didn’t want a massive postal disruption with Christmas approaching, and have shifted towards back to work measures in the face of rising public anger.
