Mr. Arnold Peters (Timiskaming):
Mr. Speaker, it is pretty hard to follow someone who has been talking about Paradise Hill, particularly when you are interested in speaking with the Minister of Employment and Immigration.
I would like to ask the minister if he is aware that a very bitter labour dispute is taking place at the Boise Cascade plant, in Kenora, and that the offices of employment in Thunder Bay and Winnipeg are recruiting scabs to drive trucks and transports through legitimate picket lines who have to be prepared to travel in convoy with OPP escorts? If the minister has knowledge of these posters that ensure danger pay and other unusual compensation, does he condone the UIC offices being used to support management in this labour dispute where mercenaries can only add to an already explosive situation?
