Mr. Speaker, I will be splitting my time with the members for Carlton Trail—Eagle Creek and Edmonton West.
The Liberals have shut down the regular proceedings of Parliament. They refuse to fully fund the Auditor General, which has resulted in fewer audits of their spending, and now the Liberals are only allowing four hours of scrutiny to review $87 billion in spending. As my colleague pointed out, that's over $360 million to review per minute, and that does not even include $70 billion of spending that is not included in these estimates.
Why is the government trying so hard to avoid scrutiny on its spending?

Mr. Speaker, even the Parliamentary Budget Officer said that four hours to scrutinize $87 billion is certainly not what one would expect in exceptional times.
The government is spending $200 million and has allocated it to Citizenship and Immigration Canada as a grant for the interim housing assistance program.
How much of that money is being used to pay for housing for illegal border-crossers?

Mr. Speaker, our global reputation definitely took a hit today.
The minister of border security announced on March 20 that Canada would turn away asylum seekers. Then, on April 20, he announced that fewer than 10 asylum seekers had crossed the border.
Why are the Liberals spending $200 million to house asylum claimants if they successfully closed the border?

Mr. Speaker, in addition to the $200 million the Liberals are spending on housing for asylum seekers, what other support are they providing?

Mr. Speaker, out of this almost $15 million that is being provided to the Privy Council Office for communications, how much is being spent to cover the Prime Minister's morning press conferences from his cottage?

Mr. Speaker, on April 11, Finance Canada told Canadians that the CERB would cost $24 billion. The supplementary estimates now say the CERB will cost $60 billion, and that does not include the two-month extension the Prime Minister announced yesterday.
Can the Liberals tell us what the total cost of the CERB will be?

Mr. Speaker, there are eight and a half million Canadians on CERB, taxpayers who are struggling to pay bills and work, yet in these estimates the government is gifting $48 million more to wealthy people to buy electric vehicles.
Why is that a priority for the government?

Mr. Speaker, how is subsidizing wealthy people to buy Teslas with $50 million, $5,000 a car, and making seniors wait months and months and months for a mere $500, a priority for the government?

Mr. Speaker, here today $182 million in taxpayers' money is proposed to subsidize wealthy car owners. Why is the government continuing to subsidize car owners? Has it run out of refrigerators to buy for Loblaws?

Mr. Speaker, through you to theMinister of Middle Class Prosperity, the cheapest electric vehicle in Canada is about $1,000 per month to buy or to finance. How many middle-class Canadians can afford $1,000 a month and will qualify for such a loan?

Mr. Speaker, this vehicle costs $1,000 a month to finance. Not many middle-class Canadians can afford that, if any.
None of these cars are made in Canada. Why is the government making this subsidy available to create middle-class jobs in the United States?

Mr. Speaker, not a single light-duty vehicle is eligible for the government's subsidy program. I suggest that the minister learn what is available.
Will the Minister of National Defence commit to providing a comprehensive update on the strong, secure and engaged costing platform as the PBO has requested?

Mr. Speaker, DND has delivered data covering just 10% of the projects, covering just 5% of the half trillion dollars in spending. Why?

Mr. Speaker, I will answer for him. DND has told the PBO that the update does not actually exist. It does not have the other information on the other 90% of the projects. Why is DND continuing to fail Canadians on strong, secure and engaged?
