Saint John M-P Wants To Know More About E-I House Calls

A public sector union says the Harper government should stop sending federal employees on Employment Insurance house calls because they might end up in dangerous situations.

Spokesman Larry Rousseau says  some employees who have done the E-I house calls have not been well received and the union is worried about their safety. 

Saint John M-P Rodney Weston is not ready to say yet whether this is the right approach to uncovering abuse. Weston has many questions he wants answered after conceding it caught him by surprise and , at first glance, finds the house calls a bit disturbing.
Prime Minister Harper is defending the house calls, saying hundreds of millions of dollars are lost through false or inappropriate E-I claims.
