Mr. Speaker, the hon. member raises very important points. A point that is worth underlining is that after we achieved a surplus budget, 80% of our investment has been in the areas of health care, education, and research and development. This generates the type of wealth that will be redistributed to those in need. It is an effective way of creating a very effective economy.
