Mr. Speaker, I would like to bring this debate back to some level of reality.
It was interesting to have a Conservative member make a speech about a budget and not mention once that we are in the final year of a $100 billion tax relief package. That may have been what his party would have liked to have done had the people of Canada been so unwise to elect it as a government.
The member also neglected to mention that the threshold is up to $8,012. He neglected to mention that the brackets have been reduced to 22% for the first $35,000 and 25% for $70,000.
That was an interesting speech to make; however, there was not one word about tax relief in the entire speech.
