Mr. Speaker, everyone in the Liberal Party knows it would be idiotic to raise taxes in the middle of a recession.
In the budget, the government promised to create or save 190,000 jobs over two years, but Canada's economy has lost over 200,000 jobs in January and February of this year. The government's goal is not nearly enough.
Why did the government not even mention that goal in its quarterly report? Has it abandoned Canada's unemployed workers?
