Where are they now? C-4, the omnibus budget bill

C-4, the Harper government’s latest omnibus budget bill (see previous reference here and here), passed the House of Commons rather quietly on Monday night. It will now pass the Senate before the upper chamber rises for the Christmas break, but it will apparently then be challenged in court by public sector unions.

The bill was studied by the finance committee, human resources committee, justice committee and immigration committee.
