Yvon Godin NDP Acadie—Bathurst, NB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-368, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (change of title to Unemployment Insurance Act) and another Act in consequence.

Mr. Speaker, once again, this is a very good bill. It seeks to restore the former title of the bill, that is the Unemployment Insurance Act. In addition, the “Employment Insurance Account” is replaced by the “Unemployment Insurance Account”, so that henceforth these monies are given to the unemployed to whom they belong.
