"Sure enough, our public servants were doing the best they could, but you couldn't keep up with the sheer volume of people who needed help," he said in Thunder Bay Thursday morning.
The Thunder Bay office is one of several across Canada that will reopen after being closed by the Conservative government more than two years ago.
