Mr. Speaker, the government talks about an unprecedented skilled labour shortage and that being the reason for EI changes last week.
If there is a skilled labour shortage, it has been developed under the current government's watch.
What we have seen is that six years of doing nothing has put us in the situation we are in today. With a million and a half Canadians out of work, the government's answer is, “Let's get seniors to work two more years. Let's let disabled people live in poverty for two more years. Let's attack seasonal workers in seasonal industries. Let's help depopulate rural Canada”.
Is that the best the government can do? Is that its A game over there?
