Mr. Speaker, my question was not about access to ATMs. It was about the cost of that access.
Our bill, Bill C-429, demonstrates that the government does have the power to act to end ATM fees but that the minister is abdicating his responsibility to protect ordinary Canadians.
As former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney once said to John Turner, “You, sir, had a choice”. The minister is choosing not to help hard-working Canadians. He can but he will not.
Will the government do the right thing today and act on the power invested in its office?
