moved for leave to introduce Bill C-423, an act to amend the Employment Insurance Act.
Madam Speaker, the bill I am introducing today is one of great importance to a number of different people.
First, bills do not stop coming because one loses one's job. My bill would eliminate that two week waiting period. It is a very important issue.
The second thing the bill would do is that if people are denied benefits because they were disqualified, they would get a rebate, as would the employer, of the premiums paid. This is particularly valuable to students.
I have other issues as well but I do not think I should give my whole speech at this time. I will be pleased to do that when 196 comes up on the list.
