Mr. Speaker, perhaps the minister did not understand the question.
We are talking about the cuts right across Ontario to the jobs for processing EI claims in 15 centres, in Brantford, Peterborough, Oshawa, Kenora, Timmins. This is about choice. The government gave massive tax cuts to the big banks and the oil companies while the Canadian government was bleeding red through the worst recession in memory, and the government is going to pay it off by slashing the civil servant jobs that are helping the unemployed.
Workers paid into employment insurance. Why is the government shutting down the offices across Ontario that are processing their claims? It is a simple question.
