Madam Speaker, I appreciate the comments. It must be a frosty Friday, because I am agreeing with a Liberal.
One of the other ideas which I think really deserves a look-see is the idea of there being a small contingency fund put into the EI fund, that is, not from EI premiums. There should be a small contingency fund set into EI funding so that does not come out of general revenue. There might be consideration taken to not having the superpriority. In other words, it would be paid out of the fund from the extra premium that would be collected on EI funds. That way the actual cost of this potential benefit to the workers would come directly from their employment.
That would be another way to do it. It would not upset the relationship between the borrower and the lender.
