Mr. Speaker, here is reality. The finance minister should take a look at the actual paystub of a Canadian worker.
I got one this morning from a millwright working at a forestry plant in Saskatchewan. His gross earnings for the pay period were $2,000. He got a paycheque for $1,000 because payroll taxes, income taxes and other deductions ate up all the rest.
This worker does not want a bill from the finance minister for $47 billion. He wants tax relief now. Why will the finance minister not give it to him?
