Mr. Speaker, on March 9, Statistics Canada released encouraging news about Canada's employment situation.
Based on its labour force survey, Statistics Canada determined that the unemployment rate was at 6.8% in February 1999, the lowest rate since April 1976.
Moreover, in February, 36,000 new jobs were created, thus continuing a pattern that began three years ago.
Finally, 1.9 million jobs were created since we came to office, in 1993.
In short, all Canadians are benefiting from economic conditions that promote job creation. These conditions were largely created by our Liberal government.
