A longtime priority of the labour movement took an important step towards becoming a reality on Thursday.

On Thursday, November 9 after months of negotiations and promises, the Liberals introduced anti-scab legislation into the House of Commons.

“Today is about keeping parties focused on the table and providing more stability and certainty to the economy,” said Liberal Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan at a press conference on Thursday morning.
