Mr. Speaker, on December 15, 1999, the hon. member said:
I am prepared to give credit to the Liberals. They understood the situation before taking office in 1993. They knew that employment insurance was an important program that was part and parcel of the social fabric of our country.
I thank him for that support. Again on December 15 the hon. member said:
We have to get rid of the intensity rule.
Today we have proposed to do just that, so I assume we still have the support of the hon. member.
