Mr. Speaker, I appreciate much of what the member said.
Certainly consulting with constituents is what we have all been attempting to do for quite some time. Whether it is at a farmers' market or a town hall meeting all of us have heard the message. A lot of what he said is the same message we are hearing.
One thing really interests me when he talked about the underground economy. There is a sort of dream that if they thought it was fair they would all just rush in and start paying tax. I question whether that is true. I think the underground economy is huge and is much greater than what we have imagined.
I wonder what the member thinks about the single tax proposal or the flat tax proposal. The reason I ask that is does he not think that if we totally reformed the tax system and everybody felt they were being treated fairly that is how we would get back to people being willing to pay their taxes? It is not just by the cosmetic changes we are talking about.
