Madam Speaker, I appreciate the time that all of us are taking to talk about the serious issues that really matter to the people in our ridings.
One thing I heard really clearly was the discussion around insufficient EI. When we came to the period of time with the COVID crisis, the first step the government proposed was to use EI. I think my colleague would agree with me that of course there is a huge gap in that. As a member who represents a rural and remote riding with a lot of tourism, I know it can be an ongoing struggle for people to get enough hours.
Looking through the lens of COVID and into the future of where EI should go, could the member share his ideas?
