I think the public will get angry, Mr. Speaker. I think they are going to get angrier with an official opposition that does not believe Canadians should have any say in who represents them in the Senate or that there should be mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes, or how about taking the effects of big money out of politics. I think they will be angry all right, but I think they are going to be angry at the official opposition.
The member spoke at length about the markets and so forth. I would hazard a guess he probably has not looked at the markets. Does the member know that the TSX is up over 17% since October 31, 2006? Does he know that? I doubt it. Additionally, does the member know that the TSX income trusts index is up over 5% since October 1, 2006? Does the member know that? I doubt it.
Let me tell the House something else the member does not know anything about. It is about a government with the guts to make a decision that has to be made because we know when the Liberals were in government they did not do it. The Auditor General pointed out problems to them in 2003. They did nothing. They did not care about tax fairness at all.
I will tell the House something else. They also did not care that the gap between rich and poor was getting so wide under its government that it was absolutely despicable. I ask the member this. Why does he not support tax fairness?
