Mr. Speaker, the Liberal leader shows just how disconnected he is from the priorities of Canadians with each passing day.
While we are focused on the economy and helping Canadians, he continues his pursuit of forcing an unnecessary and unwanted election that will harm our economic recovery.
Yesterday his party stood alone in the House in voting against Canada's economic recovery, for an early election again.
The Liberals voted against the popular and recession-fighting home renovation tax credit, assistance for first-time home buyers and Canadian businesses, tax benefits for low-income workers and help for farmers in drought and flood regions.
It is the same old game with the Liberal leader, which highlights a key difference between our government and his party.
Canadians want us to fight the recession; the Liberals want to fight the recovery. Canadians want us to govern; the Liberals want an unnecessary election.
It is yet further proof that the Liberal Party members are not in it for Canadians. They are in it for themselves.
