By a vote of 49-31, Bill C-38 passed through the Senate Friday afternoon, with the Tories using their majority to get approval for the government's budget implementation bill."

Budget Bill References:
The omnibus Budget Bill C-38, includes among other things:
-Allows livestock that have died due to sickness or injury prior to being slaughterd to be butchered & sold to the public anyway; this will breed inhumane animal conditions.
-Eliminates the national spy agency CSIS watchdog;
-Allows American agents with the DEA and FBI to operate in Canadian territory;
-Moves the age of retirement to age 67, as if age 65 wasn't old enough;
-Makes it difficult for people to receive EI, and if they do become unemployed, to accept wages as low as 70% of their true potential and in fields that their training is not utilized in;
-Eliminates regulation over freshwater waterways, for the sake of industrial potential (eliminating environmental regulations meant to protect - thus opening the door to major oil pipelines.)
-Eliminates regulation in rare fish habitat.

Canada's Budget Officer warns cons secret $5.2 billion in cuts may lead to Economic Crisis
June 24, 2012- Harper Government secrecy on $5.2 billion in budget cuts could lay groundwork for future economic crisis, Canada's chief parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page warns.
Harper's criminal government has kept secret on $5.2 billion in government-wide cuts which could lead to an economic crisis in Canada, says Canada's chief parliamentary budget officer Kevin Page. Page’s office issued a legal opinion that harper's conservatives who have not been transparent on budget cuts are
BREAKING THE LAW.
The latest source of contention: Page’s repeated and intensifying attempts to access information about how departments and agencies plan to implement $5.2 billion in cuts set out in the federal budget. Of the 84 departments queried, 64 did not share the requested details. Last week Page’s office issued a legal opinion that those departments and agencies are breaking the law.
