What Pierre Trudeau did to labor in the past,with his so-called wage and price controls,  has now been somewhat neutralized by his son, Justin, and it makes a big difference to organized labor, in particular.
By stopping such revisionist legal twisting and thrashing, set up as an opening salvo against organized labour by Stephen Harper, the Federal Libs have instantly given themselves a whole bunch of extra support they might otherwise have lacked.
But it isn’t enough…most wages and benefits  need to be increased, or, where they don’t exist,  p[rovided for, and  foreign ownership/corporate control  of businesses needs to be tightened up.

Infrastructure repairs and construction are the real way that the Canadian economy is going to grow and improve…if you are old enough, you can remember that Canada once had one of the highest standards of living in the world..housing was economically available, and working meant that you had a comfortable life. We weren’t serfs in our own country…

Corporate types will instantly start whining about  loss of profits etc (a recent report  showed that they  are sitting on  billions and billions, usually squirreled away in tax shelters…)  That will be amusing, I’ll get the popcorn ready….
