Mr. Chair, I will let Minister Blair take the time between now and the next sitting to review his first answer and compare it to his second answer.
Thousands of small businesses and farms across the country have been asking their MP to increase the Canada summer jobs. In fact, the Prime Minister suggested there would be more, yet they didn't give any more budget to any of the MPs. They announced $9 billion, Mr. Chair, for students to stay home. Here's a proposal for team Canada: Cut that in half to $4.5 billion. You can have over 400,000 summer jobs for essential services, for farms where students will work, and you can still give them $1,000 tuition credit for half of the cost of their $9-billion plan.
When will they step up, as they did with the wage subsidy when they realized they got it wrong the first time, and heed our advice to fix it now?
