Madam Speaker, I listened with interest to my colleague from Winnipeg North, and I want to bring three things to his attention.
The first is that the previous Conservative government governed in a recession. The current Liberal government has never been in a recession. It may cause one, but it has not governed in one yet.
Second, the previous government invested $150 billion in infrastructure, during a recession, to save jobs and corporations, including the auto industry and others. It was very successful at that and it got the money out the door. The Liberal government has said that it has an investment plan in infrastructure, but it has not gotten the money out the door.
The third thing is that the previous Conservative government, while it got the money out the door in a recession, had a plan to balance the budget in seven years and did it in six. The Liberal government, not in a recession, has not spent the money and still has a huge deficit on top of it all.
Does my colleague across the way agree with me?
