Mr. Speaker, 13 years ago today, the Liberal Party inherited the fiscal mess left by the Conservatives. We have spent 13 years cleaning it up.
Thanks to the Liberals, this Conservative government inherited an excellent fiscal record.
The current Minister of Finance has destroyed Ontario's economy, whereas with us the provinces were receiving record transfer payments. He has managed to take a large provincial surplus and turn it into a deficit.
One can only wonder what this minority Conservative government will do to the eight consecutive surplus budgets produced by the Liberals.
