Mr. Speaker, it is clear the hon. member did not read what is in the budget. The hon. member did not hear a word of what I said. My whole 10 minutes was to emphasize how we have set the environment since we came into power to create jobs, create jobs
for young people, create jobs in high technology. He did not hear the Minister of Finance. He did not hear me when I said we are going to use the Team Canada approach that has been so successful internationally in generating $20 billion worth of deals and contracts for Canadians. For every billion dollars of exports generated 11,000 jobs are created. The hon. member does not seem to take that into account at all.
The Team Canada approach was used in the infrastructure program. The municipalities and the provinces told us what their needs were. It is the first time the three levels of government got together to meet the needs of the local communities. Each level contributed $2 billion. It did create immediate jobs which was the intent of that program.
I hope the hon. member will first of all read what is in the throne speech, read what is in the budget and listen when we are debating in this House.
