Mr. Speaker, if there is anyone in the House spouting nonsense, it is the hon. minister.
We constantly hear about how good low interest rates are. What good are low interest rates to the unemployed? When was the last time the minister heard of a bank manager approving a loan or a mortgage for someone who does not have a job?
There are 1.5 million people out of work in Canada. Unemployment has remained high ever since the Liberal government came to power. Even though in other countries unemployment rates have been decreasing over the last two years, it has become a distinctly Canadian problem.
When will the government members get it through their heads that high taxes cost Canadians jobs?
