That's an important issue. The working income tax benefit is an attempt to make sure we reduce the marginal effective tax rates for people who are transitioning from a lot of benefit programs and those kinds of things and into more lucrative jobs. Of course, the way it works now, 60¢ of every dollar you earn as you cross that threshold might be clawed back through the loss of benefits and through taxes. The idea is to reduce that.
Can we do more? Perhaps we can, but that will be something Mr. Flaherty has to decide. It's very true that we put a lot of emphasis on helping people get into the labour market, but it's not a panacea, I agree with you. However, the data we've seen has indicated that as jobs have increased, poverty has gone down. At some point, though, you get to a point where that is not going to happen as much because people's needs are too great or because people can't work in some cases. Obviously we do have to provide income support—and adequate income support—for people in those positions.
Just to wrap up, it's not simple. These things are complicated, and the government always has limited resources and unlimited demands. It's a challenge to try to meet them all.
