`My demand in regards to EI has not changed, regardless of what this report is going to say, Robert Ghiz said Monday following a two-day meeting of the Atlantic premiers in Saint John, N.B.`

`If the federal government wants to change how the EI system in our country works, they should do it in consultation with the provinces.

A year ago, the Atlantic premiers commissioned a panel to study the impact of employment insurance changes on the region, and this week the premiers got to look at a draft report. But they say it will be a few more weeks before the panel releases the final document and they wont release details in the meantime.
