Mr. Speaker, young Canadians are struggling to find summer jobs to pay for school, and Conservatives are actually making it tougher for students. This year, the Canada Summer Jobs Program will hire fewer than 35,000 students. The Conservatives have cut the number of jobs in the program by more than half. They have also cut the number of jobs in the government's student work experience and co-op programs by almost a third. When will the Conservatives help struggling youth, and reverse these cuts to summer jobs?
