Mr. Speaker, at this time of year everyone is focused on taxes. The hon. member is right. It is tax season.
Canadians understand the taxes they have been paying support a number of things that are extremely important to them.
The government has taken extraordinary actions in each of its budgets to close loopholes, to make the system fairer and to respond to the concerns of Canadians. We all look forward to the day when that burden can be reduced. When that day comes we will do that. We are getting the fiscal house in order. Canadians know and understand that.
