Mr. Speaker, the fact is very clear that the prosperity gap is widening in this country and this budget does nothing to fix it. Every little step forward is met with two steps backward.
The big profitable corporations are getting most of the tax benefits in these Conservative budgets, just like the Liberals used to propose. The fact is the basics are not taken care of. There is no $10 minimum wage, which would have done something about poverty, a failed child care plan and nothing for housing.
Why did the Prime Minister choose the boardroom table instead of the kitchen table?
