What Tony Clement Won't Tell You About C-4: Surprises, Traps and Attacks

Over the coming week, the AJC will publish 'vignettes' capturing some of the surprises we found in C-4

Wonder how the government´s omnibus budget Bill C-4 will really affect federal employees?
After a careful review of Bill C-4, the omnibus Budget Implementation Bill, the Association of Justice Counsel (AJC) discovered many surprises that jump off the page.

Over the coming week, the AJC will publish 'vignettes' capturing some of those surprises we found (or, if you will, traps set up by the Harper Government to weaken federal workers and gut public sector unions). We will post these vignettes on our website, tweet and publish them on our Facebook page.

Let´s start with this first vignette:

Under C-4, Political Influence and Fraud in the Appointment Process Appear to Be Acceptable

If Bill C-4 is passed, the government will disallow the pursuit of complaints by unsuccessful candidates wishing to challenge an internal job appointment process in relation to competitive processes on the basis of an abuse of authority if such abuses involve allegations of fraud or political influence.   More specifically, section 351 of the proposed bill which purports to replace section 77(3) states:  “The Tribunal may not consider an allegation that fraud occurred in an appointment process or that an appointment or proposed appointment was not free from political influence.”  Taking the high road has a whole new different meaning now when unsuccessful candidates lose their right to expose corruption in the appointment process.

If you´re an AJC member who opposes these attacks on democratic rights contained in Bill C-4, please forward this letter to your local MP and please cc: admin@ajc-ajj.com

And if you´re a concerned Canadian who believes in protecting your rights (once they are done with the employees of the public sector, you, as a private sector employee, will be the next target), you can also forward this letter to your local MP.
