Mr. Speaker, I will give credit where it is due and that will be the private sector for creating those jobs, not the government.
The fact is it is no coincidence that swing voters in a number of ridings across Canada are seasonal workers. The fact of the matter is they are the ones who could make or break the Liberals in the next election campaign. The government has done absolutely nothing but neglect this file for years. Now it throws a Hail Mary pass in the direction of these seasonal workers who are struggling to make ends meet. It is heartless, it is cynical and it is typical Liberal.
Why will the government not admit that this is more an election strategy than it is an employment strategy?
