Mr. Speaker, I wish we could continue this exchange because the more questions my colleague asks, the more he and his party are falling at this point in time.
I cannot believe my colleague would not recognize that we had an agreement signed much before April 1. He forgets that. He conveniently forgets it I suspect, because he is quite a bright fellow actually.
With respect to the way he suggests we have spent the money, front end loaded, he uses expressions. I wonder if he could define them for us. It would be very helpful to Canadians because most of them do not know what he is talking about.
He knows that that money was needed. He knows that that money was spent responsibly. He knows that we had an agreement well before April 1. He knows that the Minister of Finance and his colleagues have done a tremendous job on an extremely complex issue.
If he will recant, I hope he will give an address and do nothing but point out some of the positives of this piece of legislation. At the same time he should indicate what he might do in order to prove it as opposed to making grossly exaggerated, insensitive and wildly inaccurate statements.
