Mr. Speaker, the Liberal government is collecting more taxes than any other federal government in the history of Canada. It has the record.
Not surprisingly, Canadians have suffered a $3,000 pay cut in the last three years. What do they get in return? They get 1.5 million Canadians unemployed, 800,000 people having to moonlight just to make ends meet and the highest number of young Canadians dropping out of the workforce since the 1960s.
My question is for the finance minister. When is the government going to realize that high unemployment is a direct result of high taxes? When will it get the connection?
