Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government buried major policy changes in the budget hoping to ram them through unnoticed with the rest of its agenda.
This American-style approach is bad for democracy and goes against the transparency the government pretends is so important to it.
The Liberals are no better. They are all talk and no action when it comes to opposing Bill C-9.
We are calling upon both parties to do the right thing for Canadians by pulling these sections out of the budget. If the government really believes that these changes have public support, then it can reintroduce them as stand-alone bills if it must.
