Mr. Speaker, Canadians do not want an election. Constituents of mine, like Brian Patterson from Pottageville, have said that they want the parties to put their differences aside and focus on Canada's economic recovery.
That is what members on this side of the House are doing.
However, the Liberal leader does not care what Canadians think. His party is intent on forcing an unnecessary and opportunistic election. While we are fighting the recession, the Liberal leader wants to fight the recovery.
We will continue to implement Canada's economic action plan. Our plan is working. There are signs of recovery but the situation is still fragile. Our government is committed to staying on course. We remain focused on the economy and helping Canadians.
The Liberal leader can continue to try at every chance to force an election, that is his prerogative, but we will continue to fight the global economic recession.
This is just more proof that the Liberal leader is not in it for Canadians. He is in it for himself.
