Canada Post heading back to work!

Did you know Canada.. we are in luck! Just at 8pm on Saturday night The House gave third reading to the Canada Post back-to-work bill and by a vote of 158-113 it was passed. The house then adjourned for summer.

The Senate will receive the bill on Sunday morning and it should be a go for Canada Post back to work some time next week. In fact, according to Labour Minister Lisa Raitt, The back-to-work order would go into force 24 hours after receiving royal assent.

If you can believe this came to conclusion after a 58 hour filibuster! The Conservative government says the old record of non-stop debate was 27.5 hours which was set in 1989.
