Statement made on 02 May 2012 by Senator Terry Mercer

Hon. Terry M. Mercer:

Honourable senators, in the latest round of cuts hitting the public service, almost 4,000 people were handed letters yesterday saying that they may lose their jobs. Parks Canada employees, to the tune of over 1,600, were the hardest hit. Parks Canada, as you know, takes care of Canada's dearest treasures — its parks and historic sites — including one of the premier parts of the park system, the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton.

Over 400 people in Atlantic Canada are affected by these cuts at Parks Canada, including 10 jobs and over 100 people who will see their work hours curtailed at Fortress of Louisbourg to meet the government's charge to balance its budget on the backs of hard-working Atlantic Canadians.

Would the Leader of the Government like to enlighten us as to how, when during the last election the Conservatives promised jobs and a better economy, they can justify this latest round of job cuts in rural communities across the country?
