Honouring the principle of decency

Ontario is in the process of implementing and enforcing the historic reforms in Bill 148 — Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act — and we continue to be among those who push for legislative and policy reforms at all levels. We’re proponents of the principle of decency: no matter how limited a worker’s bargaining power, no one is offered, accepts or works under conditions that Canadians would not regard as ‘decent’. This speech, delivered at Atkinson’s 75th anniversary celebrations, explains why.
