Mr. Speaker, in preparation for the elections, the Prime Minister seems to be checking out his style and trying to update his look a bit. However, he is becoming entangled in his old habits. We can see this in parental leave.
The Prime Minister is out of touch with the facts of today's labour markets. In fact, the federal parental leave proposal makes no provision for self-employed workers, who nevertheless represent 18% of the labour force.
How will he defend his refusal before these families?
