Mr. Speaker, today marks two years of broken promises by the Conservative government. The government started off promising to be squeaky clean and to achieve five priorities. Instead, it opted for mismanagement and harpocracy. Here are some examples.
The government broke an election promise not to tax income trusts, resulting in a loss to Canadians of $25 billion and counting.
The finance minister flip-flopped on the disastrous interest deductibility measure.
The government gutted 92% of funding for climate change programs and then repackaged them with new names, less money and less commitment.
The government broke an election promise to honour the $5.1 billion Kelowna accord.
The government turned back the clock on women's equality by removing the word “equality” from the mandate of the women's program.
The government broke an election promise to create 125,000 new child care spaces.
After two years of harpocracy and two years of broken promises, this is not a happy anniversary.
