The Conservative critic for the ministry responsible for overseeing the Canada summer jobs program says the Trudeau government has shifted the mandate of the initiative to reflect Liberal Party interests.
“This program operated without any controversy for many years and unfortunately the government has turned the program which is supposed to do one thing – provide job experience for young people – into where they are setting and scoring where their ideological allies will perform better,” said MP Dan Albas in an interview with CTVNews.ca
Each year the government identifies national priorities which guide the selection process for non-profit, public, or private sector employees registering for government subsidies to hire people between the ages of 15 and 30 over the summer months.
