There does not seem to be unanimous consent to extend a question.

I do not hear that consent, so we will move on. Resuming debate. The hon. member for Burnaby—New Westminster.

Mr. Speaker, what we have seen tonight is a broken promise to Canadian people. We saw the commitments that were made prior to May 2. We saw the commitments made by this Prime Minister to our former leader, Hon. Jack Layton. He said that there would be no cuts to services to Canadian families.

When we look through the budget document tonight, what we see thoroughly and regularly are cuts to services to Canadian families. We have already seen the government, in Victoria, cut back long-term health care funding. The Minister of Finance and the Prime Minister know that full well.

Starting in just a few years, the dismal decades under the Conservatives, we will see an increase in the retirement age, which will mean more seniors living in poverty. More seniors are living longer.

Canadian families deserve better than the budget that has been tabled tonight. They deserve better than the cuts in services, cuts we have already seen from the government in long-term health care funding, and now cuts to retirement security, and cuts to services that Canadian families depend on every day.

Mr. Speaker, you know and we all know in the NDP caucus, 102 strong, that the Canadian public is going to take a very dim view of the dismal decades that the government has in store for it in the coming years.

There is no doubt we are going to have a very thorough debate on the floor of this House of Commons around this budget. New Democrats will be standing up for Canadian families. That debate will be starting tomorrow.

For tonight, I move:

That the debate be now adjourned.

(Motion agreed to)
