Madam Speaker, congratulations on your appointment as Deputy Speaker.
I do have a question. The member speaks very highly of small businesses and makes reference to the clearing up of red tape. Ultimately, I would look to the member to respond and perhaps provide some clarification.
Priorities are established within a budget. Clearly, it would appear that the priorities of this government are geared toward large corporations.
If we take a look at the tax breaks being given to large corporations over small businesses, in essence it is clear that the government believes it will be the large corporations that will provide future opportunities. That contradicts what most economists and others would suggest, that it will be small businesses that will drive the economy into the future.
Why is there a mixed up priority in terms of where the tax breaks are?
