Hon. Monte Solberg (Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for Brandon—Souris for his outstanding representation for the people of that riding. He is a great voice for the people of Manitoba.
I was in Winnipeg on Friday and announced, along with the minister of training there, $110 million in new funds from the federal government to provide people who are underrepresented in the workforce a chance to get training. Aboriginals, recent immigrants and persons with disabilities will get the support they need to step into the workforce.
This is an example of our philosophy that all Canadians deserve a hand up to help them succeed like everyone else has come to know.
