Mr. Tony Tirabassi
Madam Speaker, I can tell that the member is quite passionate about this and would really like a specific answer.
The question of harassment in the workplace is complex and has many dynamics. Treasury Board has been finding ways how to best manage this problem. Many of the large departments have already introduced values and ethics programs, and others are in the process of doing so.
I wish to inform the member that the Public Service Modernization Act, Bill C-25, which was passed in the Senate on Tuesday requires that informal conflict resolution systems be established and applied in each department.
I would hope that she is in agreement that this is a positive development that will lead to a common goal that we all share, which is a harassment free workplace.
