Mr. Speaker, we know that Quebeckers pay some of the highest taxes in the Americas. The coalition parties want to squeeze them some more by imposing a new tax on iPods without taking aim at piracy. With Christmas approaching, the last thing Quebec families need is a new tax. By defending a new tax, the Bloc members are clearly demonstrating that they are out of touch with the Quebec reality.
Would the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages tell the House the government's position on this new tax?
