Madam Speaker, the Minister of Industry's riding, that of Parry Sound—Muskoka, was very happy about that budget.
I would like the hon. member to explain to us how the money spent on tablecloths, glasses, dishes and a theme pavilion relates to security. I do not really see the connection.
Canada currently has $56 billion in debt, which the Parliamentary Budget Officer determined could not be paid off until 2015-2016.
I am of the opinion that the parliamentary secretary should consider the much more conservative position that the Minister of Public Safety and his associates were taking before they came to power. They had announced a budget of $28 million, including all operational aspects and security.
