    Just one example, Cooks are jobless, in order to get a different job most of them need short term courses (on the job training)
    I think, government organizations that planing to create jobs, have to be VERY CREATIVE, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Vassy had earlier got Carla Qualtrough to say that the million jobs pledge of the Liberals meant an additional million jobs over a year so I don’t know why Catherine Cullen kept asking the other Catherine about the timeline. It would have been more useful for her to ask if this is based on SEPH data or LFS data, and if we are talking about employee jobs (all SEPH jobs are employee jobs) or all jobs including self-employed jobs, which would necessarily mean using LFS estimates. It also isn’t clear whether the Liberals are counting from September (the most recent month available for LFS), August (the most recent month available for SEPH) or some other month. The Liberals shouldn’t be allowed to cherrypick the data a year or more from now to find something that seems to confirm that they kept their promise.

    Tim Murphy waxed lyrical on the splendid qualities of Michael Sabia, the new head of Infrastructure Canada. Infrastructure Canada, the institution Michael Sabia talked the feds into creating has put $1.3 billion into the electric light-rail network around Montreal rail Michael that Sabia conceived of when he was the head of the Caisse de dépôt. And now Michael Sabia is in charge of deciding what Infrastructure Canada will invest in next. One man wearing so many hats over time may strike outside observers as a little off, but not our Tim. That’s just the Liberal way of doing things.

    So we are borrowing or lending money for infrastructure? How do private industry benefit? What is our return on our investment? 60000 jobs and some high priced infrastructure?

    Coast to coast high speed shipping and passenger bullet train project or coast to coast cornholio19 free Habitrail bike path. Shouldn't they be building actual hospitals and care homes and schools with this money? will the budgets and contracts be public and posted during projects progression?
