C 377 must pass!

 Unions in this country have far too much power, which they excercise in secret. Bill C377 is a first step to  try and get some transparency for these leftist cabals.

OTTAWA—Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government will try Wednesday to push through legislation requiring unions to throw open their books to tax authorities for public disclosure on the Canada Revenue Agency website. The bill comes up for a vote a day after the Michigan legislature drew international attention by passing two laws weakening organized labour’s power in a U.S. state once seen as the bulwark of the labour movement. NDP labour critic Alexandre Boulerice said the legislation before the Commons is an assault on the rights of workers similar to what’s being seen in the United States. “What we see is an attack against the unions, but this is an attack against the middle class and we don’t want to see that in Canada,” Boulerice told reporters. Bill C-377, which has been heatedly disputed by opposition parties and organized labour, is a private member’s bill put forward by Conservative MP Russ Hiebert. While few pieces of legislation proposed by parliamentary backbenchers become law, Harper is expected to use the Conservative majority in the Commons to win final approval of the B.C. MP’s bill

Just a small example of organised labour at work was the Sun News poll yesterday that organised labour stacked. Again today the poll on right to work legislation you find the same thing. Never has another of their polls had so many votes and guess what, in favour of organised labour. Since the Sun News system allows more than one vote, someone or a few someones must have very tired fingers from voting so many times.

I expect you're looking forward to similar legislation covering the CMA, doctor.

CMAis totally voluntary unlike unions. You can be a doctor and have no link to the CNA. Unions force membership and fee payment.

I'm afraid the claims contained in your last sentence are entirely incorrect, as is reflected in practice and that old piece of Tory legislation known as the Canada Labour Code.

Yes, when a piece of legislation targets certain groups or individuals I too have a problem with that. To be fair the legislation should have gone after ALL ASSOCIATIONS & DUES paying entities that have the right to a tax write off! DOCTOR you included!
