    the answer to this vengeful policy is to get rid of the Harper government.

    Crowley said "...before EI, workers switched jobs with the seasons". Mr. Crowley, before cars, people used horses and buggies. So to follow your line of thinking, if one cannot afford a car, one should use a horse and buggie. There are more factors to consider than just what workers "used to do". Also, a two-tiered employment insurance rate system would fly in the face of employment creation. The very employers you would target are the same ones who are already trying to keep their heads above water. The seasonal aspect affects them as much as it does their employees. A higher EI rate would be a disincentive to hire and may even begin to pave the road to shutting down their business. Mr. Crowley, the last thing anyone in Atlantic needs now is to have businesses close down permanently. You are targeting the most vulnerable workers and businesses in Canada. Think again, Crowley.

      You're right saelcove, Canada *is* a big place. Tell you what: since you're so keen on moving so that you can sit and complane, why don't you move and the rest of us stay here. I hear that Canada is a big place. Did you know it's bigger than France. It's true!

    The Macdonald-Laurier Institute is hardly a ‘non-partisan’think-tank. Despite its claim to be such it is well connected to the Conservative government as well as corporate Canada. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty personally backed Brian Lee Crowley at a ccorporate fundraiser he hosted for the MLI in 2009.
