Mr. Speaker, the budget clearly states in both French and English that $19 billion will be taken from the employment insurance fund.
The government is also contradicting itself when it comes to transitional measures. On the one hand, the “tequila minister” is telling us that no decisions have been made in that regard. On the other hand, the hon. member for Montmagny—L'Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup is telling us that he has given up and that the government decided not to renew transitional measures that would close the black hole currently facing unemployed workers in eastern Quebec.
My question is simple: who is telling the truth?
