Mr. Speaker, I thank my NDP colleague very much for his question.
It is always important to strike a balance with respect to the employment insurance fund. The Conservatives were foolish to increase employment taxes during a recession, a time when economic growth was very slow and the unemployment rate was higher.
Now we have to correct the design flaw in the Conservatives' policy and come up with another way to stimulate economic growth and create jobs.
We have come up with a better approach that reflects the principle espoused by the NDP finance critic, who says we should support businesses that create jobs. I hope the NDP will support this motion.
