Mr. Speaker, we continue to make health care a priority. We have increased transfers to the provinces by 6%, to an all-time high of $25 billion this year. We are making additional investments in areas of pandemic planning with H1N1, medical research, food and product safety, wait times, and electronic health records.
The Liberal government, when times were tough, balanced its books on the backs of the provinces and territories. That is not the course we are going to pursue.
