The Liberals employment insurance extension program is way over budget. That program offered extra weeks of EI coverage to help regions with persistent unemployment — regions like Alberta.
Original projections estimated the EI extension would cost the federal government $827 million over three years, from April 2016 to March 2019.
Instead, in just a little over a year, the program has cost just under $1.31 billion. What a mess!
The cost over runs of the EI program is a testament to the failure of the Liberals’ job creation policies. Nothing the Liberals are doing is bringing jobs back.
Are the Liberals going to roll back their crazy policies that are chasing billions and billions of investment to Canada? Are the Liberals shelving their plan to make the approval process for energy projects even more odious and punitively long? Will they stop their carbon tax?
Watch my video to see some of the international programs and initiatives the Liberals see fit to waste our money on while our friends and neighbours who paid their dues to Canada lose everything.
Of all the programs the Liberals cut, they cut the one targeted to help struggling Albertans stay afloat.
No wonder we have this sneaking suspicion the Liberals don’t like us.
