Mr. Speaker, as I said, I support the minority report tabled by the Bloc Quebecois and every measure contained in it. The hon. member wants to know where the money required to finance federal spending will come from. I am telling you where to cut: in tax shelters. We have condemned such shelters. Family trusts are a disgrace and should be eliminated as soon as possible.
Also, all the unnecessary expenditures identified by the auditor general in his report must be cut. More cuts are required in defence. The cold war has been over for quite some time. A more equitable tax system must be developed and we do not think the government should use the $5 billion UI fund surplus to finance its deficit. That money is not theirs to begin with. It belongs to those who have contributed to the unemployment insurance fund, that is to say employers and employees, and only to them.
For these reasons, once again, I commend our finance critic for presenting such a fine report.
