Mr. Speaker, our Conservative government is proud to stand with Canada's great small businesses during Small Business Week.
Our small business owners employ millions of Canadians and are the backbone of Canada's economy. We are proud of these small businesses, which bring important products and services to their local communities.
One thing that would threaten to undo the success of our small business owners is the NDP leader's job-killing carbon tax. The NDP leader's job-killing $21 billion carbon tax would increase the price of everything, including gas, groceries and hydro.
That is not the way to support entrepreneurs and that is why on this side of the House we will continue to fight it.
