Mr. Speaker, the hon. member knows that legislation is developed and passes through this House in a particular way. He knows that my department, along with the Minister of Finance, have worked with the three Atlantic provinces to develop legislation that will harmonize the sales tax system.
As a member of the finance committee, I crossed this country and listened to Canadians who said to us: "Fix this tax. Fix it by harmonizing it. Fix it by having tax included pricing. Fix it by having one administration".
I congratulate the Atlantic provinces for having the foresight to understand that this is what will be the solution to this tax. I would suggest to the hon. member that he talk to his own province about the importance of such a solution.
