    Actually, common sense tells us that federal Ministers have drivers so that they can be dropped off and picked up at the door, for scheduling and security reasons. And although I agree with Brian Jones when he says there are indeed such things as bad jobs, I also agree with Minister Flaherty's point that if all you can get is a bad job, then you should be required to take it instead of going on EI.

    That “Those lazy N------ should move to where the jobs are” slur can be heard daily by many of the more self-righteous Newfoundlanders against other Newfoundlanders who are less fortunate than they are. We are also not beneath making condescending slurs against mainlanders, Quebecois, natives, immigrants, townies, baymen, Muslims and environmentalists. Not that you would have any part of that, Mr. Jones.

    As Bob MacDonald CBC's Quirks and Quarks pointed out in a dicussion of time travel, the earth is moving so not only would you have to move in time, but to the location of the earth at that point in time. On the EI changes this is a government with little practical experience as its members have never had real jobs. They therefore do not know how anything really works. Does anyone remember the MHA from the west coast who had to go to Alberta to qualify her nursing accreditation? Most skilled jobs nowadays require that the person maintain their training and work experience. How is this possible flipping burgers or in other low paying jobs. That business jumped on the bandwagon say volumes about their capabilities as well!
