Mr. Speaker, I have to tell the member again, there have been no cuts to the core funding on any of these programs.
If the member would slow down and read the budget, she would see $5.1 billion of additional new funding. That is on top of the core programs. Why did we do that? Because that is what we heard from Canadians. That is what we heard from university professors, college presidents, researchers and industry across the board.
On this side of the House, we listen to Canadians and we do what we need to do for them.
