Mr. Speaker, here is the record of 12 years of Liberal government.
Government spending on programs of hard-earned tax dollars has increased by 44%, or $49 billion. Health care is worse with longer waiting lists. Taxes have increased. Red tape has worsened. Seniors are worse off. Farmers are worse off. There is the $2 billion gun registry.
In fact, who is better off? Only the Liberals' friends. The list of scandals is long with Shawinigate, strippergate, Earnscliffe, ad scam, Radwanski, Dingwall, Ouellet, Pelletier. It starts to sound like the old country song I've Been Everywhere by Hank Snow. It is all Liberal names.
All of this is from the illegitimate Liberal government elected on stolen taxpayers' money funnelled to the Liberal Party.
It is time for a Conservative government led by the current Leader of the Opposition. His first piece of legislation as prime minister would be the federal accountability act, which would ensure that Canadians never again would get corrupt government like we have had from the Liberal government for the past 12 years.
