Mr. Speaker, this is what the Prime Minister told this House on January 30, 2012:
We have been very clear that as we reduce the deficit, we will not be cutting transfers to either the provinces or individuals.
He went on to say, “The reality is that we are not cutting programs for seniors”.
That was just two months ago. Did the Conservatives write the budget on the back of a napkin or were they misleading Canadians?
