Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Pres­sure on the government is mount­ing to make it re­verse its harm­ful em­ploy­ment in­surance re­form, and New Demo­crat MPs voiced the claims of pro­tes­tors gath­ered in Sher­brooke to­day, in the House of Com­mons.

“We must main­tain pres- sure, it’s the only way to make the government back down on this im­por­tant is­sue,” said Pierre-Luc Dusseault (Sher­brooke).

“I salute the groups protest­ing in Sher­brooke and in other parts of Que­bec to­day,” added Jean Rousseau (Comp­ton-Stanstead). “Mo­bi­liza­tion con­tin­ues and it’s only the be­gin­ning,” he said.

“Their cause is just and New Democrats are mak­ing their claims heard by the Con­ser­va­tive government in the House of Com­mons. To­day, we con­tinue the fight and will not give un­til this reck­less re­form is re­versed,” they said.
