First you build a bogey man and then you use it, to make Draconian changes to a Social program (that could have a governmental financial benefit) that will now cost twice as much in administrative burden. Should the Conservatives actually of wanted to achieve a worthwhile change in the Social program they should of accompanied the changes with direct technical training or apprenticeship training tied to an area of need. This is a straight hidden taxation grab by the king of the Balanced Book "Charade" Harpo and friends. Just for the record never drew UI and never will, I have been in the workforce for 40 years know a few people who were forced during downturns (like now). I would like to know, why now all of these changes need to be made when we currently have the lowest business taxes in the G8 (and please don't tell us how lower taxes lead to job growth) but the middle class and the poor have to keep on being taxed to death while the government builds Boogey men to erode the very Social programs we have paid into all our lives. Harpo and crew still want the average Canadian to believe that 2+2=5 RefoormCon Math doesn't work on Canadian's anymore.

A conservative's steak always tastes better when he knows that someone else is starving.

How about forcing employers to train workers rather than importing skilled workers from over seas.

In seems fair to say that this government doe not want people on EI. It wants them working. As they have done with senior citizens and the CPP they don't want people not working. It is even more apparent that it does not recognize seasonal workers as gainfully employed. It seems to suggest that one who is seasonally employed needs to have more then one job to carry them through the year. This of course would be very difficult to achieve in most fields of seasonal employment. These seasonal plants will have to be located in other larger centres where people who are employed will be able to garnish other opportunites since it is quite clear the government isn't going to create make work projects nor is it going to pay EI wages unless prorated to seasonal workers. Well Mr. MacKay is from one of these seasonal employment areas. So tell me why has he been voted him in three times?

There is no hierarchy as such. If you are a Tory minister, there is but one person who pulls your strings. Sorry, one soulless automaton...

Could it be that conservatives are going to try and derive a surplus from EI?

my point is, conservatives like to attack paul martin for borrowing dough from EI. it was proven that it wasn't planned, in this case here, id say it will be.

you are right because the disabled are the ones paying the most into ei and never getting a chance to collect it

EI is supposed to be a safety net, but far too many have turned it into a hammock. The gov't should crack down on those who game the system, otherwise the whole program is put at risk.

Show me the stats that prove "far too many have turned it into a hammock". I'm not buying it. I was EI three times in my working life. I haven't been on EI for over 10 years now. I never will again. It is not a system that a person can live off of, so I don't know where you get the idea that people are milking the system. In the meantime, people like me pay into this insurance for when we need it. I work in the animation industry. For most animators there will be times when they need EI between shows. That is just the nature of the business, you work on one show, the season ends and usually there is a few months break until the show starts the next season. Often there is no work during that time. It is not wrong for an animator to go on EI during that time, even if they do it repeatedly every year between seasons, that is why they pay into it in the first place.

Government is not willing to spend the money to hire employees to investigate so called phony claims.
