moved for leave to introduce Bill C-371, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (percentage of insurable earnings payable to claimant).
Mr. Speaker, once again, this is one of the best bills we could have. The bill seeks to increase the percentage of insurable earnings from 55% to 66%. Any insurance pays two thirds of salaries. At 55%, the plan is not fair to workers who pay into it.
