Mr. Speaker, the minister clearly has not been to the community.
The union reps presented the minister and his staff with detailed facts that his department will not share with Canadians. For example, Vegreville employees are right this minute working on new overflow cases from other processing centres, like they have done many times before. However, according to the minister, staff in Vegreville do not fit the requirements to process work from across the global departmental network.
Will the minister finally admit that his excuses for closing this office are complete nonsense and unfounded?
