Wow that EI surplus should go to increasing the benefits. Increase the weekly amount, weeks entitlement, etc.

As an employer, I would be happy to get say 0.2 of my 1.4x back. Unfortunately, my guess is that it has already been allocated to some white elephant (or herd of same) like the gun registry or regional economic development.
