Mr. Speaker, it seems like these are only poaching jobs, not creating new ones.
It is disgusting that the minister would use funds from an agency that he is responsible for to feather his own political nest. Just like the TJF, regional development agencies are vulnerable to political opportunism.
Believe it or not, this is the minister who is now going to be put in charge of the TJF money transferred to ACOA.
Has pork-barrelling politics become so second nature to this government that its members cannot even see the conflict of interest being created here?
