Mr. Speaker, the government decided back in October that it would support Air Canada.
The first thing that the freeloaders at Air Canada decided to do was to pocket $20 million, knowing that it would ultimately be replaced with taxpayers' money. Public funds were going to be used.
What did they do in the meantime? They laid off 20,000 people, workers who lost their jobs and became unemployed. They refused to refund regular folks' plane tickets. The worst thing is that the government let them do it. Way to go.
What does the Prime Minister plan to do today to ensure that these freeloaders pay back the $20 million?
