    Corporate Canada's last desperate push to stop anti-scab bill - NUPGE Canada
    Big business already has the support of the pro-corporate Stephen Harper Conservatives, who routinely oppose changes that would help workers. But this time big business is up against a minority parliament with a combined opposition that voted for C-257 by a margin of 167 to 101 at second reading.

    Thus, there is more than a note of desperation in the corporate pitch this week. The rhetoric in the Hill Times ad, for example, borders on hysteria.

    ''Bill C-257 will risk the uninterrupted provision of critical services that affect seniors, families, small businesses, and the Canadian economy services such as 911; health and emergency services; transportation services (air, rail, marine, and road) and news and weather warnings in the event of a storm or tragedy,' the ad reads.

    Yet there is no guarantee for workers that the bill will ever reach third reading and pass. The Conservatives may not have a majority but they may be able to prevent it from coming to a vote.
