Mr. Speaker, we are keeping our promise on the budget. Our budget delivers a lot of things for working families.
In addition to protecting and fully meeting our commitment to respect the offshore accord, we are also providing things that are benefiting real families in Nova Scotia, the working families the hon. member just spoke about. There is the new $2,000 child tax credit which will save Nova Scotia parents $39.6 million. There is the working income tax benefit which will allow Nova Scotians to pocket $17.8 million in tax relief.
Those are the benefits to the real working families in Nova Scotia that the leader of the NDP is against.
