Mr. Speaker, on fiscal matters, the hon. gentleman is flatly wrong, but let me deal with another issue.
I understand today that the opposition leader is travelling to British Columbia, where the Prime Minister is at the aboriginal summit. I hope the opposition leader will take the opportunity to apologize to the Prime Minister for the outrageous smears that he made in the House yesterday, and that members of his shadow cabinet repeated outside the House.
We have seen this kind of thing before from the Leader of the Opposition. This time I hope he shows a little dignity.
