Mr. Speaker, during the break I met with a number of Canadians who shared their concerns with me.
I met with people who are worried about the changes to EI and how they will negatively impact the agricultural sector.
I met with people who are very worried about underemployment and who are having a hard time making ends meet.
I met with people whose communities do not have the resources they desperately need for infrastructure.
I met with organizations representing persons with disabilities and veterans that are watching the government slowly withdraw the crucial support they depend on.
I remind the members opposite that these are also their fellow Canadians. When the government hurts Canadians and these members do nothing, they are also responsible.
It is a new year; they must remember that they have been called upon to represent all Canadians and not to pick and choose.
