Mr. Speaker, it is not enough to have policies. They have to be put into practice.
Rural Canada accounts for fully 40% of our exports. This is a huge economic contribution to our nation's well-being. Despite drought, frost, border closures and infestations, first the Liberal budget and now the NDP-Liberal budget only have money for more bureaucrats and consultants for these sectors.
Why does the Liberal government, along with its NDP allies, refuse to respect those of us from rural Canada?
