We recognize that the challenges in Alberta are significant. This is of enormous concern. I'm sure you're hearing what I'm hearing, which is that families are struggling in Alberta. That's not limited to Alberta; it's in other parts of the country as well.
We've taken significant measures to be of assistance. We started out, most importantly, with changes to the employment insurance system, recognizing that for regions of the country that were experiencing significant changes in unemployment, they would be in a better position in terms of getting longer unemployment insurance amounts so they could deal with the transition.
I won't in any way say that that's going to fully deal with the challenge. We are doing other things, as you mentioned. I think what we've done with the Canada child benefit is really important, because that is having a big impact on families with children who are finding themselves in that situation.
For all Albertans, and for that matter, for all Canadians, investing for the long term in our country is important. Finding our ability to invest in infrastructure—and we've announced a number of infrastructure investments in Alberta—will help to get people to work and will help the economy to be more productive over the long term.
We are making multiple efforts to make a difference, and we will continue to be focused on this challenge, recognizing that it's important. In the long run, we will be talking about skills and skills development as well, so that we can enable people to keep their skills up to date and consider ways in which they can have an impact in whatever field they choose to be in, whether in Alberta or in other parts of the country.
