Bloated EI program testament to failed Liberal job creation

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator Sheila Gunn Reid
 

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.

Hey! Are you implying the tall foreheads at the BoC have it wrong? We’re entering solid growth, therefore the interest rate is going up! An entire nation of far-left government can’t be wrong. Or are the tall foreheads banking on Donald J. Trump, and Canada reaping the rewards as the pimple on Uncle Sams ass, as has always been done?

It’s a Breach of Trust for Trudeau to spend the money outside Canada, as he has no Duty of Care to them, but does to Canadians.

Believe it or not it is Quebec and Sask who have created the bulk of new jobs, however we still have a trade surplus and the GDP is 1/2 of what it should be to sustain growth. Figures lie and Liars figure.

Nah. Don’t want to interrupt your action.

Kelly Weber said, “Peter she clearly says unemployed Canadians.”

I know this is not what you believe, but Albertans are actually Canadians.

Kelly said, “But your right Alberta is the welfare province right now.”

Well no, unfortunately. Alberta still has to pay the lion’s share of the Provincial Equalization. Of course, you may have meant “welfare” in the sense that the people are required to seek out assistance, not the province itself as you phrased it.

Kelly Weber, you are a liar. You know Sheila mentioned Alberta has high unemployment numbers, not Canada in general. And here you find a stat for all Canada. That is a subtle form of a lie and you know it!

Peter she clearly says unemployed Canadians. She mentions Canada 🇨🇦 in the article. But your right Alberta is the welfare province right now.

My son was laid off due to Notley and was going to collect EI for the first time in his sixteen year working career, including the CAF. When laid off, he decided to upgrade to a trade, taking the head start program in Kelowna. When he told EI he was going to trade school, they declared him a student and cut off his despite the fact he was a student because he was unemployed. To add insult, they then claimed EI paid was an overpayment which he owed.

Now maybe, if when he was in Afghanistan he had done a traitorous deed and also converted to islam, he would now be a multi-millionaire.
