Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 1   parks and marine conservation system. That is more than the size of Greece. That has been added since the Conservatives came to office.

The Economy  . The Liberal leader has threatened dangerous new deficit spending that would take Canada down the same roads as Detroit and Greece. I am not surprised that someone who believes that “the budget will balance itself” would also believe that we can spend our way to prosperity.

Greek Independence Day  Mr. Speaker, this year Hellenes around the world celebrate the 193rd anniversary of the independence of Greece.

Greek Independence Day  Mr. Speaker, March 25 is a cherished day in the calendar for Greek Canadians. Greek Independence Day celebrates the start of Greece's liberation struggle from the Ottoman Empire in 1821. As the MP for Toronto—Danforth, it is an honour to be one of the participants

Finance committee  Thank you, Madam Chair. I'm going to go quickly, then. I want to say right off the bat, with respect to Stats Canada, I think something needs to be said about the fact that when we compare to the OECD average, that also includes huge outliers like Greece, Spain, and Italy. We

Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act   a whole people and a God that had given law, according to which those people felt obliged to live.

The Budget   at the floundering economies in Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal to see what economic decisions that are not based on these kinds of fundamentals lead to in the face of a very difficult global economy. Thankfully, Canada is not there, because we have had responsible, sound government

The Budget   is very clear: whether it is the OECD, an independent third party that cites it, or whether it is Canadians as they look at their own books and compare themselves to other countries like the United States, Germany, and Greece, the results speak for themselves. Canada has shown

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, of course the hon. member is wrong. There are 160 tax cuts putting money back into the pockets of Canadians. The Liberal leader has ideas, ideas that would take this country down the same road as Greece and Detroit. I am not surprised with a party whose leader

The Budget   to a higher standard of living. It gives the government more flexibility to invest in and support job creation programs. A balanced budget avoids the instability and draconian cuts seen in other parts of the world, such as Greece. As a grandparent myself, I see it avoids burdening our

Situation in Ukraine   challenge. Europe has had enough challenges in its own back yard with Greece, Portugal, Italy, Spain and other countries and it has really hesitated to say that it should put money forward at this time. If there had been more political will, there should have been a way to make

Economic Action Plan 2013 Act No. 2  . I should make the point that the NDP's failed economic policies have been tried around the world. Look at Greece, France, Italy, the city of Detroit, the city of Chicago. High spending, high public sector wages and high tax drove those cities and those countries to economic ruin

Government Operations committee  It is difficult for two reasons. Number one, the accounting standards that Canada, Australia, and a few other countries use are far more strict. For instance, if you were to look at the financial statements of Greece, they're not very pretty, but they also don't include a lot
