Mr. Speaker, that is exactly why half of the jobless still do not have access to EI benefits.
The government is refusing to act in the interests of Quebec. After breaking election promises, after having its hand forced into amending the throne speech, after voting in committee in favour of the creation of an independent EI fund, it is now shoving aside the recommendations in the committee report. As well, it rejected this question during the negotiations with the NDP.
What is keeping the government from proceeding with this fundamental reform which is in Quebec's interest?
