There was no question there, but I will certainly reply to the comments regarding inheriting a debt.
I think the hon. member should go back a little further to when her idol, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was prime minister of this country. When we took power in 1984 we inherited the debt. We had to deal with that.
We talk about a balanced budget. We are certainly applauding a balanced budget today, but I will tell the member how we got there. The Liberals certainly did not got there in three years. We got there because of the measures put in place by the previous Conservative government.
The member mentioned transfer payments. Is she from Atlantic Canada? I am from New Brunswick. I have seen the devastation in the health care system, in education, in high unemployment. New Brunswick will lose $11 million in cash transfers in the next four years.
