Mr. Speaker, I really wish the Prime Minister would embrace the merit principle when he picks his cabinet.
I remind the revenue minister that two years ago she said of the GST: "As Liberals we were elected to change the tax, abolish the tax, scrap it". That is what the revenue minister said two years ago, six months after the election.
Why is she and her government weaselling out of their commitment to abolish this hated tax? Why has she changed her mind?
