Mr. Speaker, if the government calls that success I would hate to see its failures.
On Wednesday the Deputy Prime Minister claimed that Canadian industry was at fault for Canada's 30 year decline in productivity, but here are the facts. Under the government's watch, we have seen decades of growth in program spending financed by increased taxes and deficits. We have seen decades of decline in foreign investment in Canada, decades of growth in federal government debt and corresponding decades of decline of the Canadian dollar.
How is it that the Liberal government cannot see that its failed policies of high taxation and high government debt are the main reason for the dollar's decline?
