Wow. That's a piece of law right out of the 12th century. Is there a clear definition of what that means? Because the way the minister seems to be spinning it is that they have to support the policy of the government of the day.

Does that include requiring that government workers vote for them too?

@ cco

Probably not,  though evidently they had prettier window dressing for their election campaigns back then.

 

Unionist

Wow, good find, cco!

Except there's no left alternative in Quebec provincial politics aside from QS which has, what, one elected member, and 4% of the popular vote. 

Latest polls have them around 10%

Well the terms "master-servant relationship" are still used sometimes to this day...

This is in no way specific to Quebec BTW: the same kind of obligation exists WRT employment contracts in common law jurisdictions.

Here's something:

Quote:
Implied in every contract of employment as a matter of law is a general duty of good faith and fidelity. This duty has been characterized as is the “bedrock duty” from which all of the specific implied obligations of the employee ultimately derive; an “all pervasive, residual obligation to further the interests of the employer which is not capable of exhaustive categorization but which can be relied upon by the courts to compel ‘faithful’ service in a myriad of work situations”.

The essence of the duty of good faith and fidelity is the requirement that an employee act honestly and faithfully during the term of employment. Among other things this means that an employee must always put the employer’s best interests first and avoid any conflicting personal interests

It of course doesn't go that far.

There are a number of cases revolving around employees wearing pins, or t-shirts, etc. at work. The results vary depending on the circumstances. Ergo my saying that we don't know much from the article about what exactly the memo was asking.

For the benefit of people who don't read French:

cco is saying "How times have changed" because this ad for the PLQ actually advocated for "completely free tuition—from elementary school to university, inclusively, provided that the student has the required talent and will".

Leigh

"This incredible movement sparked by the student strike against increased tuition fees has morphed into a powerful mass movement against austerity measures and repressive policies."

-

the news clipping says the Liberals supported free education from public school to university, including housing, clothes, and other needs of students, that the province is responsible for providing education.
