OTTAWA – Today in the House of Commons, local MP Claude Gravelle (Nickel Belt) stood up to demand answers to why the Conservative government has mishandled the contracts of hundreds of statistical survey staff in Sturgeon Falls.
“This government has been nasty with science and statistical evidence. Now they are mistreating the people collecting the evidence,” said Gravelle. “I have 200 statistical survey operations staff in Sturgeon Falls, part of 1,500 across Canada, who have been without a contract for over a year.”
This mistreatment is just another example of shocking Conservative behaviour meddling in contracts to make life harder for public service workers.
“These workers are important to our local economics. Their hours are cut. They lose jobs and they lose income, benefits and pensions. Why is this government so dug in and so unfair with these workers?” asked Gravelle.
