Mr. Speaker, here is the reality of the situation: Today, 200,000 jobs in Quebec remain unfilled because of the labour shortage. This has cost our businesses $18 billion because there are not enough employees, and 70% of our businesses are turning down contracts. That is Canada's economic reality: a labour shortage.
Yesterday, in the Speech from the Throne, absolutely nothing was said about this.
Why is the Prime Minister pretending that nothing is happening when our businesses are suffering from a labour shortage right now?
