Mr. Speaker, I think the question put to me was that I did not support the firefighters. I challenge the hon. member to prove that. If he proves that I did not, I will be prepared to withdraw, because that was a very inaccurate statement that he made and he knows it very well.
Why am I going to vote? I am not voting against this budget. I am not going to vote for this budget on one issue because we see it as a whole. It is for the same reason that when we provided tax relief and money for health services under the Romanow report that those members voted against it. It is by the same reasoning, much as I outlined one program that I am very pleased with, that I cannot support the budget.
