Mr. Speaker, we did our homework. I went online and could not even find a generator that cost $9,000, let alone a power cord.
Food bank usage is up almost 30% in two years. These are our neighbours who have run out of options. They cannot afford food. Meanwhile, Canadians watch as the Conservatives blow $8,700 on a power cord and buy fancy china at nearly $1,000 per setting.
How can the government spend thousands on fancy plates when almost one million Canadians have empty plates?
