moved for leave to introduce Bill C-309, An Act to amend the Business Development Bank of Canada Act and the Canada Student Loans Act (student loan system).
Mr. Speaker, a lot of students are on the cusp and cannot access student loans because, according to the rules and regulations, their parents make $1 too much over the minimum in order to achieve this.
All students in this country have the right of access to university, post-secondary education and vocational training. We should not restrict access to student loans and opportunities for students to upgrade their skills in order to assist us in the future economies.
