The 2015 federal election is now less than a week away. Notable in the race so far (at least from our perspective) has been the prominence of workplace issues, and the corresponding employment law implications. Indeed, one of the most blistering exchanges in the first half of the campaign was with respect to the federal minimum wage.
So approximately 6.1 out of every 10 Canadians went to the polls or mailed in a ballot to vote in the 41st general election, and the Conservative Party won its long-coveted majority, despite the charges of contempt that felled the previous Parliament. Will we have a nice and stable four years to build on our economic recovery, as the Conservatives campaigned? Or will we find the country irrevocably transformed in the Conservative image, as the Liberals and NDP charged?
