Labour Minister Linda Jeffrey, asked at AMO (2012) if the government would strengthen the need for arbitrators to consider a municipality's ability to pay, reportedly indicated that the government would be prepared to put that legislation forward in the fall.
But as of last Friday, officials at the ministries of labour, municipal affairs and finance were unaware of any concrete plans to introduce legislation.
How this Minister still has a job is beyond me.
Remember her infamous quote at the 2011 OGRA/ROMA to the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Melancthon when she was Minister of Natural Resources?
All together now….
"get constituents thinking about rehabilitation, because this will not be going back to agriculture, but maybe you could get a nice golf course.”
