Mr. Speaker, as we apparently get into an election campaign after less than three and a half years since the last election, let us look at the Liberals' record on keeping promises.
On taxes, they promised to cut, to scrap, to abolish the GST. They did not. They did deliver 50 tax increases in the last five years alone. For the past three years they have promised tax relief, but have members looked at their pay stubs lately?
On the environment, they promised legislation to protect endangered species and they failed three times.
On agriculture, they promised farmers $1.9 billion to compensate for losses due to unfair trade. They have delivered 42%.
On crime, they promised to overhaul the Young Offenders Act. After seven years they have failed again.
In fact, the biggest crime of all is that this government thinks Canadians will believe their hollow promises again.
