Mr. Speaker, Canadians are not fooled by this so-called new Liberal government and Prime Minister. They know it is still the same old Liberal government that they have endured for a decade.
In my riding of Prince George—Peace River, constituents are still waiting for the government to properly address the environmental disaster brought on by the mountain pine beetle infestation.
They are waiting for a resolution to the softwood lumber dispute with the United States that has closed mills and left so many without a job.
They are waiting for the government to come up with a workable assistance program that will actually help beef producers devastated by the mad cow crisis.
They are waiting for quality health care to arrive in our remote northern region of the country where we continue to face a severe shortage of doctors.
And they are waiting in vain for tax relief while the government continues to throw their money away on scandal after scandal after scandal.
Just like my constituents, and after 10 years as their MP, I am increasingly frustrated with the government's misplaced priorities. Canadians deserve better, and with the Conservative Party of Canada they are going to get it.
