Mr. Speaker, I invite the hon. member back to my riding—I know he has been there before—to continue his study into what makes a community click.
He talked about nurses leaving the country. In the case of the province of Ontario many nurses have left the country. It has everything to do with the fact that the provincial government, with which those members are so pleased, has fired 10,000 nurses. The government flips and flops and is trying to hire them back, bring them back from the United States. Poor planning.
Let me be very clear. For the most part, people who come out of Sir Wilfrid Laurier University go to very well paying jobs. Let me also inform the member that the Conestoga graduates have the highest employment rate of people going to community colleges in the province of Ontario. I am sure the member opposite would like to applaud that. The ranking was recently done and I believe it is at 94%.
When criticizing things, sometimes we hear mention of a glass of water. This glass of water happens to be 75% full. I would rather look at it as being 75% full than be like the official opposition and look at the glass of water and complain that it is 25% empty.
