Sask Premier Brad Wall May Use 'Notwithstanding Clause' To Sidestep Supreme Court Decision On Right To Strike ...





Premier Brad Wall continues to hold firm to the base ideology of a 'businesses over persons' ideologue and says he may invoke the Canadian Constitution's 'notwithstanding clause' to suppress a working persons right to strike in Saskatchewan.

The notwithstanding clause was used previously in Saskatchewan by Wall's former employer, disgraced Conservative Premier Grant Devine. 

"In 1986, the Saskatchewan legislature introduced back-to-work legislation to end a strike by public service employees. The government introduced the legislation based on the grounds it needed to protect the general public from the harm associated with the disruption of government service caused by the strike. The legislature went a step further by making a Notwithstanding declaration to protect the back-to-work law from any Charter scrutiny by the judiciary (in particular, to protect the legislation from being found unconstitutional on the grounds it violated a possible right to strike under the Charter).

Sask Premier Brad Wall Trivializes Supreme Court Ruling That Protects A Person's Right To Strike In Canada ...




"... while Friday’s ruling could embolden the union moment, Wall senses that the rest of the public will be indifferent or even resentful of the unions’ legal win. At least, that sure seemed the case Friday afternoon, when he quite literally laughed off the potential multi-million loss by posting on Twitter that re-signed Rider Weston Dressler “was one essential service the Supreme Court can’t take away.”
It was an ill-thought tweet, considering Wall’s own political game-playing and anti-labour partisanship may have just cost us millions. But he’ll likely get away with it.
If Wall’s good at one thing, it’s doing just enough to downplay his failings — even when they are coming right from the Supreme Court."
