Mr. Speaker, the facts do not support the member's statement. He talks about the different advice that he takes. Maybe we want to look at what he said in the past. Not so long ago he said:
I believe we need to replace failed regional economic development programs and corporate welfare with dramatic corporate-tax reductions, because the market can pick winners and losers better than bureaucrats.
He said that in the Ottawa Citizen on May 17, 2003. Is the member out of touch with his past or, like his party, is he out of touch with all Canadians?
