Mr. Speaker, we know the so-called leader of the Liberal Party is not a leader. Now we know the Liberal Party stands for nothing, and literally.
On the throne speech, our plan for a better Canada, the Liberals just could not stand and vote. They sat in their seats, including the leader. What happened to their principles? The only Liberal principle left is self-preservation.
The party of health care and education? The Liberals voted against budget 2007 increases.
The party of the environment? This Conservative government adopted the toughest emissions reductions of any country for 2020.
A strong economy? The Liberals voted against all budget 2007 measures to help industry, measures they said that they supported at committee.
The party of national unity? Under the Liberals, support for sovereignty in Quebec it was over 50%. Now, our country is strong and united.
So what do the Liberals stand for? Just their paycheques.
A wise man once said, “You better stand for something or you are going to fall for anything”. He must have been talking about the Liberal Party of Canada.
