CONSERVATIVE FAILURES STALL ECONOMIC RECOVERY 

OTTAWA – With Statistics Canada reporting that unemployment is increasing and the economic recovery is grinding to a halt, the NDP is again urging the Conservatives to take immediate steps to boost quality job creation.                              

“The NDP has introduced many practical proposals that would create good-paying, middle-class jobs,” said NDP Finance critic Nathan Cullen (Skeena – Bulkley Valley). “The Conservatives are instead pushing ahead with their wasteful income splitting scheme that will give billions to the wealthy few.” 

According to the report, unemployment jumped by more than 50,000 last month with 29,000 private sector jobs disappearing. Youth unemployment continues to soar, climbing to 13.3 per cent with the loss of 20,300 full-time youth jobs.
