Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau wants to make big changes to the employment insurance system.

He says a Liberal government would reduce E-I premiums to one-dollar and 65-cents per 100-dollars earned.

That’s less than the one-dollar and 49-cent rate the Conservatives promised in this year’s budget.

Trudeau argues the extra two-billion dollars in revenue between the two figures would be reinvested under their plan. (8)
