Irene Mathyssen London—Fanshawe, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-422, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (elimination of waiting period).

Mr. Speaker, this is a private member's bill that amends the Employment Insurance Act to eliminate that two-week waiting period.

As we all know, young families suffer incredibly when they lose the job that sustains them. It is very traumatic. Low-wage single-parent families live from paycheque to paycheque. Therefore, the point of this bill is to make sure that those interminable two weeks are eliminated, because that waiting period can indeed put a great strain on any family.
