On Friday, March 14, 2007, Sask. Party Minister of Advanced Education Employment and Labour, Rob Norris attending the CUPE Convention in Saskatoon denied that his government consulted ANY stakesholders prior to tabling of their anti-worker, anti-union legislation.
The video below is Norris answering a question from delegate Wayne Foley, First V.P. of CUPE 1975:
The e-mail that was referred to in the question can be viewed here. It suggests something completely different than what Minister Norris is saying. The e-mail was aquired through a Freedom of Information request.
Did the government consult with external stakeholders prior to tabling the Legislation or not?
