Madam Speaker, I have to agree totally with the Liberal member who just spoke. It is the people at the low end of the scale who should be getting the tax relief.
That being the case, I would specifically like to know why it is that her government would see a single parent mother with two children, earning $15,000 a year, pay $1,700 a year in taxes to her government. I would like to know why families earning $30,000 a year and under contribute almost $30 billion in taxes to her government.
Why then does she think Canadians should believe that her words have any basis in fact? She says, on one side of the coin, it should be the people at the low end of the scale who are getting the tax relief; but on the other side of the coin her government is collecting $30 billion a year from families earning less than $30,000 a year income. It is incomprehensible.
Let me be very clear and very precise. The specific program of the Reform Party is that the people at the low end of the scale will be the first people who will be advantaged. We will no longer see single parent moms who are barely getting by paying taxes to a government. That is where the Reform Party will make the relief. Why will the Liberal government not do it?
