Mr. Chair, the economy has posted one of the strongest job creation records over the G7. The CIBC released a report, but we are talking about the longer term record.
The report fails to consider that there have been significant structural changes to the Canadian labour market, in particular the aging of the baby boom generation, the rising number of people age 55 and over and then again returning to the labour market. As well, there were demographic shifts in terms of full-time and part-time workers.
