Good Riddance to Bill 257

Well the House of Commons did something right for a change.

Last night MPs voted down Bill C-257, which would have made it a crime for companies to hire replacement workers during a strike.

Simply put this Bill was a terrible idea.

If passed it would have undermined Canada's economy, given more powers to union bosses to cripple key infrastructure industries and infringed on the individual rights of all unionized employees.

That's why the National Citizens Coalition ran a media ad campaign to oppose this disaster in the making.

It's a good victory for the NCC and a victory for Canada.
