Mr. Jean-Yves Roy (Haute-Gaspésie—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia, BQ)
Madam Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Vaudreuil-Soulanges for her wonderful speech.
I would like to give her an opportunity to continue, particularly concerning employment insurance. The government is proposing to extend the employment insurance benefit period by five weeks for those who can receive benefits. Only a minority of the population presently receives employment insurance benefits or could do so.
I would like my colleague to explain why the Bloc has demanded real employment insurance reform.
