Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to thank the witnesses for joining us.
I'll start by speaking to Ms. Marcil.
Ms. Marcil, congratulations on your new position. It's always a pleasure to work with you.
We agree that the current situation is quite unusual, and even outrageous, for employers and also for businesses, students and workers.
The government has implemented a number of measures. I was pleased that the Quebec Student Union agreed with our proposal, which unfortunately wasn't adopted. We thought that implementing a system similar to employment insurance, in which the income wouldn't be entirely cut off if it exceeded the $1,000 benefit, could create an incentive to work.
I want to hear your opinion on the transparency of all these measures. Did the government clearly explain how it implemented the measures for students?
