Service Canada Restores EI Claim
30 year old Marlene Giersdorf has been at the centre of a debate over the past month, over changes to the Employment Insurance system. Giersdorf was cut off from EI in early January, because she didn't have a car, and wasn't able to travel up to an hour's drive away to get a new job. That's one of the new rules in the program. Giersdorf protested outside Service Canada's office in Montague and got a lot of media attention. She appealed her claim, and now she has had it restored. Giersdorf has enrolled in a resident care workers program at Holland College. John Jeffery spoke to Marlene Giersdorf, earlier today about how she feels now that her EI claim has been restored.
