TodayFinance Minister Jim Flaherty says employment insurance premiums will be frozen for the next three years.

Three months ago. Mr. Speaker, we have crowd-sourced over 3,000 questions from Canadians across the country for the Prime Minister on economic challenges facing the middle class. I want to ask the Prime Minister a question I received from Dustin in Calgary. His question is specifically about his EI premiums, which are rising by $50 this year, a direct payroll tax increase. Dustin would like to know why the Prime Minister chose to raise EI premiums for him and every other working Canadian?

(EI premiums have been a going concern of the Liberal corner.)
