Statements in the House

The Budget June 7th, 2011

Mr. Speaker, it give me great pleasure to rise in the House today and ask my first question.

I enjoyed the speech, but what does the budget specifically do for youth? There does not seem to be any mention at all about the skyrocketing youth unemployment rates in my constituency and right across Canada.

Would the government explain what the budget does specifically for youth and to reduce youth unemployment?
