Hubley Supports “Fairness is a Two-Way Street”


Press Release 

 

Thursday September 5, 2013

Kanata – “After lengthy and multiple discussions with MPP Jack MacLaren over the past two months, I have always agreed to support the principle of labour mobility for construction contractors, truckers, and haulers between Quebec and Ontario,” said Councillor Hubley.

“On at least ten occasions, including a meeting yesterday, I agreed that this Bill provides a fair way forward, and supporting it is the right thing to do.  At each opportunity, I confirmed my willingness to bring a motion of support to Council.”

Jack McLaren’s Private Members Bill 80, Fairness is a Two-Way Street Act will be debated on Second Reading in the Ontario Legislature on September 12, 2013.  Next week a motion will be tabled at the September 11th Ottawa City Council meeting to allow Council to vote on it in advance of the debate at Queen’s Park. 

In order for the motion supporting labour mobility to be debated at City Council on September 11th, the rules of procedure must be waived and two-thirds of councillors must consent to allow debate to proceed.

“I am optimistic that my Council colleagues will support the principle of labour mobility,” said Councillor Hubley.
