Mr. Speaker, it would be great if it were true but it simply is not.
On this side of the House, we believe in innovation, but let us see the record on the other side. We see that direct public investment in R & D is in last place in the industrialized world. Patent development is second to last. PhD graduates are second to last. That is the record of the government. It is clear that the government does not have a plan.
When will the government stop endangering our economy and start investing in research and development to create jobs here in Canada for Canadian families?
