    Since the 1980s, Canada’s labour movement has observed every April 28 as the Day of Mourning for workers killed or injured on the job. In 1990, Canada’s Parliament officially recognized the National Day of Mourning, and since then the tradition has spread to more than 100 countries. The Day of Mourning is a day to honour the memory of those workers who have died, and to stand up for safe and healthy jobs. On April 26 I joined a march to the Provincial Legislature to acknowledge the workers we've lost and recognize the improvements to workplace safety that we have achieved through the hard work of organized labour in Canada.

    My statement in the House today (April 25, 2013): Mr. Speaker, it seems that spring has sprung and love is in the air as last night we witnessed the two old-line parties caught in each other's warm embrace once again. When the final vote for Bill S-7 came up, it was Liberal, Tory, same old story as the Liberals and Conservatives were seen voting hand-in-hand. Together they voted through a law that allows secret hearings and incarcerations of up to one year without charge and conviction, provisions that have proven unnecessary in the past and provisions that represent a clear violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a piece of paper that some parties in this place should understand better. We recognize that these springtime smells can be intoxicating, but that is no excuse for shirking one's responsibility to uphold both the letter and spirit of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, even when it takes political courage to do so. Canadians deserve a party that will fight to protect the sanctity of the charter in all circumstances, and they will have a chance to choose that change when they vote NDP in the federal election of 2015.

    The first loyalty of any Canadian citizen should be to Canada, not to the hereditary monarch of England. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/first-penny-now-queen-for-martin-203543951.html
