Mr. Speaker, once again the Conservatives are showing blatant favouritism towards their friends.
The upcoming transfer of the employment insurance processing centre, which is completely effective, from Rimouski to Thetford Mines is a partisan move. We now know that the building that is going to accommodate the new offices belongs to an associate of the industry minister's father, which certainly hints at a conflict of interest. We know there is a backlog of 80,000 employment insurance claims in Quebec. What we need is more resources.
Can the minister announce that she is going to right this wrong and keep the employment insurance processing centre in Rimouski open?
