Statement made on 27 October 2010 by Senator Catherine Callbeck
Hon. Catherine S. Callbeck:
Honourable senators, my question is to the Leader of the Government in the Senate.
Last March, I asked the leader about the loss of funding for the Canadian Council on Learning, which is still one of Canada's foremost researchers in education. At that time, which was seven months ago, the leader stated the federal government was focusing on working with the provinces, the territories and other stakeholders to create this new labour market information.
I have yet to hear how the expertise of the Canadian Council on Learning has been replaced. What steps have been taken to create this new method of gathering labour market information?
