You might expect a cabinet minister tabling legislation to have even the slightest clue what that legislation is about but not if we are talking about labour minister MaryAnn Mihychuk.
On Thursday Mihychuk tabled legislation to repeal two bills passed under the Conservatives, Bill C-377 on financial transparency for unions and C-525 which required any attempt to certify or decertify a union to be conducted by secret ballot.
Watch the back and forth as I quiz Mihychuk on whether she would agree to give up the secret ballot in elections she runs in. She doesn't understand, she actually shows at the 1:07 mark that she doesn't even realize C-525 is about giving the secret ballot and revoking it would take that away from union members. "There's no discussion of secret ballot or no secret ballot," she said.
How could the minister possibly have known that the bill she tabled took away the secret ballot other than she was bragging about repealing C-525 which the summary clearly says is about giving the secret ballot to workers in federally regulated industries?
Oh, I know, she could have read the summary which reads:
This enactment amends the Canada Labour Code, the Parliamentary Employment and Staff Relations Act and the Public Service Labour Relations Act to provide that the certification and decertification of a bargaining agent under these Acts must be achieved by a secret ballot vote-based majority.
