Mr. Speaker, I am glad I can put two words together after those last few comments. I also want to thank the hon. member for giving me some research tips on how he found out about this bill. It is also talking about what we can do in Canada for Canadian consumers. I am going to offer some research tips to my hon. colleague.
Instead of googling, I suggest he maybe take a walk down Wellington Street to the Rideau Centre and talk to consumers who are paying with their credit cards and then realizing that they are being gouged with a 25% interest rate when they have to pay their bill. How about taking some research down to the local food bank and seeing families that are having to use the food bank because they are unemployed? Right now, their credit cards are maxed out as well because they do not have EI coming in. We talked about EI problems here earlier. That is some of the research I would like to see the hon. member doing as well.
In terms of being specific, I wonder why the hon. member has targeted consumers as being at fault for using a credit card and having to pay a high interest rate, that they should know better. Increasing the font from 12 to 14 is not giving anyone any more information. Maybe he can explain why his government seems to think it is consumers, not credit card companies, who are at fault for skyrocketing interest rates.
