Mr. Speaker, today we have heard a great debate on a motion dealing with the disability tax credit. Although this issue has been raised before, it is only now that it is starting to hit home with the many individuals affected by this issue. The attempt by the government to eliminate the disability tax credit from those in need of every break they can get is inconceivable.
The issue becomes even more repugnant when one realizes that the line department is HRDC, the very department that boasts a $38 billion surplus. This surplus was built on the backs of the working class, including those living but yet working with their disabilities. The government and particularly the department of HRDC should be ashamed and should immediately restore the tax credit to those so deserving.
