moved for leave to introduce Bill C-480, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (establishment of Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund) and another Act in consequence.
Mr. Speaker, once again, I would like to thank the hon. member for New Westminster—Coquitlam.
This third bill calls on the government to change the employment insurance system. As we all know, I have introduced more than three bills. I think I am up to 11 bills. This bill calls on the government to change the EI system by amending the legislation to create the employment insurance trust fund. This enactment would change the title of the Employment Insurance Act back to its original title—its real title—the Unemployment Insurance Act.
The enactment would also create a separate unemployment insurance trust fund under the authority of the commission. This would replace the employment insurance account that is a part of the consolidated revenue fund.
As we all know, workers are sick of having their money taken away, without even asking them. This money belongs to them. This bill could improve the employment insurance account.
