Madam Speaker, thankfully the great citizens of this country have never found it necessary to put a federal NDP government in charge of our public treasury, and I hope it stays that way. That way, the New Democrats can never pretend they had a chance to balance anything.
This is an area of provincial jurisdiction. The provinces never want to see the federal government intervene directly into it.
Mr. Don Davies: So is health care.
Mr. Tom Kmiec: I hear the member heckling me because he does not like my answer, but that is simply the matter.
We have a $26.6-billion deficit. In my home province of Alberta, diagnostic services are a private area. They are paid for publicly but are privately administered. The Province of Quebec does it differently. It does this the way it wants to. It is the same thing in every single province. Each provincial government runs a health service, and provinces can determine how they wish to operate it and how they wish to provide the services. That is the way this great Confederation of ours is supposed to work.
