Mr. Speaker, my question is for the finance minister.
From Kyoto to Romanow to Bono, if there was a good idea out there, the minister found a way to ignore it in the budget. The Liberal budget did not include one cent for the global fund. So much for change; the Liberal budget simply repeated Jean Chrétien's old promise on foreign aid which will mean we are giving less in foreign aid in 2010 than we did when the Liberals took power.
What is the point of singing with Bono if the Liberal budget is going to dance to a completely different tune?
