Mr. Speaker, the Liberals in this House are very proud of their connection with the Ontario Liberals. They believe Lyn McLeod is going to be the next premier of Ontario.
The federal Liberals support the Ontario Liberals' red book policy. The Canadian finance minister has gone so far as to interfere in the provincial election by ridiculing Ontario Tory policies. However, speaking of ridicule, I wonder just how proud Lyn McLeod is of the federal Liberals. Why does she not ridicule federal Liberal policy that will see the continuation of the MPs' very own porky pension plan?
Ontario Liberals understand the revulsion that Canadians feel toward their MPP pension plan and say in their Ontario red book they are going to scrap the porky plan.
Meanwhile, federal Liberals are poised to vote for their pension plan. They want to hide it from Canadian taxpayers in committee, which makes me wonder if federal Liberals are proud of Lyn McLeod. Is she ashamed of them?
