We decided that it was very important to improve the situation of Canadian families and of the middle class in Canada. We made two very important decisions. First we decided to reduce income tax for the middle class, a measure that affects 9 million Canadians, and to implement the Canada Child Benefit, which will help families with lower incomes as well as middle-class families. Our objective is really to establish a system that works and will provide more money for middle-class Canadians. In this way, their children will have a better future. I think this program will be very important, and that it will allow more families to work in our economy and improve their situation in the future.
