Mr. Speaker, what a refreshing change it is from a previous government that was full of talk and no action to a government that gets things done. We are a government that speaks and takes action, and that promises, then delivers.
Let us have a look at what the government has accomplished and what it has delivered. We have reduced the GST from 7% to 6% to 5%.
We have reduced the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%. We have increased the amount Canadians can earn before paying income tax to $9,600.
We have delivered $100 per month to parents for each and every child under six years of age.
We have reduced the national debt by $37 billion, with interest savings used to further reduce taxes.
When it comes to protecting our streets, the government has delivered by introducing sweeping reforms on the justice front.
After having listed a number of initiatives that will put more dollars than ever before in the pockets of all Canadians, I would like to wish all members of the House, and indeed all Canadians, a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year.
