Mr. Speaker, it seems that the NDP has the same solution for every problem: hire tens of thousands of government union members.
We, on the other hand, believe that we need to deliver public services efficiently. That is why we have reduced the costs for processing each EI application by 42% through automation and other improvements. We are hiring more staff and we are continuing to speed up the process.
I would like to once again thank my parliamentary secretary for his recommendations on this file.
