Here is the long-term trend, Mr. Speaker. Conservatives have lost more than 400,000 full-time, family-sustaining manufacturing jobs and they have the worst record for good job creation in a generation. Canadians deserve better than Conservative policies. Unemployment jumped by more than 50,000 Canadians last month and we saw 29,000 private-sector jobs disappear. Far too many Canadians either lost their jobs or fear that their jobs will be the next to go.
When will Conservatives admit they have messed things up and when will they finally introduce a budget that puts good jobs first?
