NDP

Yvon Godin NDP Acadie—Bathurst, NB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-477, an act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (change of title to Unemployment Insurance Act).

Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for Burnaby—Douglas for seconding this motion.

The purpose of the bill is to change the title of Employment Insurance Act to Unemployment Insurance Act. It needs to be given the fair and respectable title it had when it was created in 1940. It needs to go back to its original title. It was an unemployment insurance for people who lost their job. This bill will give this insurance its true title and the respect that comes with it.
