Mr. Speaker, in the long term Canadian families are going to be a lot worse off under the government.
Conservatives gave Caterpillar $5 million. Now the Prime Minister was willing to use the workers as an election prop for his photo op. Now that those same workers are out on the sidewalk, he just drives right by in his limousine.
The government has thrown millions of dollars away. What we have are plant closures and jobs going south: White Birch, Mabe, AstraZeneca and now Electro-Motive.
Why is the government dropping the ball? Where is the jobs plan for our hard-hit communities across the country? Where are the jobs?
