And of course opposition parties oppose it - they don't want power to be given to the Minister and benefits coming from flexibility and rapid changes to program as economy demands it. They would prefer debating it forever and change nothing.

In my opinion giving more power to Minister also comes with responsibility and accountability - unlike in the past (and still now) all was always murky, debated and decided by never accountable for mistakes Committees.

It should be like in business - we hired Minister to manage immigration program and we'll fire Minister if decisions made don't bring expected results. We have nobody to fire now as Committees are (1) not accountable and (2) always make a politically motivated compromises, not the business decisions our economy needs.

They are under pressure in some provinces and not others.

From my casual observation, the occupations that appear on Alberta's Occupations under Pressure list really are under pressure. I can't speak for the OUP lists of other provinces.
