Mr. Speaker, earlier today the Prime Minister announced that much of the fiscal dividend will go toward his millennium scholarship fund. His fund is full of lofty promises, but it will not replace the $7 billion the Liberals have slashed in payments to the provinces for health and education. It will not help students graduating this year with $30,000 of debt. It will not help the 17% of our young people currently out of work.
Instead of this millennium band-aid, why does the government not reward Canadians with tax relief, the real way to a brighter future for all?
