Mr. Speaker, I am sure that the leader of the third party, as the aspiring leader of the fifth party, would like to put his own numbers before Canadians so they can make the same judgment.
We have stated that contributions to the Canada pension plan are not a tax. They are an investment in Canadians' retirement savings.
One thing is very clear. The agreement the federal government has come to with the Government of Alberta, and I notice that the hon. member has not got the courage-Mr. Speaker, I am sure he does-the hon. member will go to Alberta and will campaign against Ralph Klein because Ralph Klein signed the deal.
I am sure he will go into Ontario and will campaign against Mike Harris because Mike Harris signed the deal. I am also sure he will explain to Canadians why his alternative will cost $500 more than the federal government's changes to the CPP.
