Mr. Speaker, we have more bad news that has the Conservative government written all over it.
At the CRA tax centre in Shawinigan, 33 people will lose their jobs and another 22 will lose their jobs at the Jonquière centre. Clearly, this will be a major blow to the local economies of both cities. And to add insult to injury, the targeted positions have to do with archiving personal and corporate income tax returns. This news does not bode well for the privacy of Canadians.
Do the Conservatives plan to entrust the archiving of Canadians' tax returns to private industry?
