Mr. Speaker, Canadians are losing their jobs because the Conservatives cannot be bothered to do theirs.
Major layoffs have hit Canadians from coast to coast: 485 jobs at Blacks, 1,000 at GM Oshawa, 1,500 at Future Shop, nearly 18,000 laid off at Target, Sony, Mexx, Smart Set. The list goes on. This is worst economic performance Canada has seen outside of a recession in more than three decades.
When will the Conservatives stop their self-congratulations and bring forward a real plan to put people back to work?
