Mr. Speaker, I can assure members that under this new program the majority of people who work while they are on claim will benefit from this and be better off.
However, let us look at the hypocrisy of the member and the Liberal Party. They pretend that they care about hard-working Canadians and yet they voted against the youth employment strategy. They voted against the EI hiring credit, the apprenticeship incentive grant, targeted initiatives for older workers, tool tax credits and foreign credential recognition.
We are trying to help Canadians back to work. They are not.
