Mr. Speaker, if the Liberal auto strategy was working so well they would not be firing thousands of people.
The government is telling us that it wants to fire Jean Pelletier from VIA Rail. At the same time, the Liberals are informing us that Jean Pelletier has proceedings before the Superior Court of the Province of Quebec and is asking for a huge severance pay. Moreover, because of the Liberal incompetence, he could get retroactive wages totalling $400,000 for the period of 20 months between his first firing and his second one.
Why can the Liberals not fire their bandit friends without giving them money?
