BC Fed – Monday 24 Nov

The debate is on… what a fantastic opportunity to see a topic beaten to deferral or build up to the clouds through parliamentary procedure.

We heard from current BC Fed president Jim Sinclair. Still a very inspiring speaker. Jim is not running for re-election this year, so exciting times ahead.

The delegates heard from NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, naming areas of concern under the current government specifically the working class. Thought provoking, it is up each union member to be aware that federal politics does affect our daily lives and ability to live. i.e. child care, minimum wage, ability to be in a union with collective bargaining.
