moved for leave to introduce Bill C-215, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (illness, injury or quarantine).
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce, in both official languages, this employment insurance bill. Canadians confronting serious illness need more than 15 weeks of sickness benefits to recover before going back to work. This bill will support Canadians while they go through the recovery process and get better.
I know I can count on members to debate this bill wisely and constructively.
