Mr. Speaker, unfortunately the facts do not support the member's assertion.
The leader of that party supported the Alberta government in bill 11. That is the approach they take toward public medicare. In the last election campaign the Tory party proposed replacing the CHST by transferring tax points to the provinces and territories. That would end the role of the Government of Canada in ensuring compliance with the principles of the Canada Health Act.
That party's position, and the position of the Reformers, was rejected by the Canadian people with very good reason.
