moved for leave to introduce Bill C-295, An Act to amend the Income Tax Act (recent graduates working in a designated region).
Mr. Speaker, it is with immense pride and great pleasure that I introduce in the House a bill to amend the Income Tax Act. I am convinced I will gain the support of all my colleagues for this legislative measure. This bill will make it possible to not only address the skilled labour shortage affecting the regions, but also promote continuing education in colleges and universities as well as professional and technical training for young people who will be needed to fill jobs in the regions because of population aging.
Mr. Speaker, I know you share my enthusiasm and I thank you.
