Mr. Speaker, the good people of Cape Breton--Canso have been victimized by what must have been an administrative error, because somewhere somebody has lost a zero.
Last summer we had a thousand summer students working. This year it is a hundred. That is a drop of 90%.
These jobs were not Wal-Mart jobs. They were community jobs in museums, theatres and recreation programs.
The actions of the government have hurt students and they have hurt communities. When will the minister restore the funding? When will he act like a hero and give us back our zero?
