Mr. Speaker, the Liberals, hot off their do-nothing convention, have a new slogan: “We can” That is really original. I wonder where they came up with that.
Here is what we know so far about what Liberals mean when they say, “We can”.
“We can” means they can raise taxes on the backsides of Canadian families.
“We can” means they can abandon a majority of Canadians, including first nations, who support scrapping the long-gun registry.
“We can” means they can all sign onto a coalition government that they now say would have deeply and enduringly divided Canadians.
Conservatives have a saying too: “We are”.
We are keeping taxes low for Canadians during these economic times.
We are providing stimulus for industries to emerge stronger and greener than ever, and we are moving forward on our promise to dismantle the long-gun registry.
What is the irony of all of this? In the last election, we asked Canadians for permission to rebuild and modernize Canada's infrastructure and lead them through this global recession, and their answer was, “Yes, we can”.
