Mr. Speaker, the minister's math is wrong. The government is ignoring inflation and population increases.
The Conservatives cannot escape. The Prime Minister broke his promise on health care, and cash-strapped provinces will have to pay the price. Experts, including the Parliamentary Budget Officer, agree that the Conservative formula will cost provinces over $30 billion. There is no getting away from that.
Will the government finally listen to Canadians and provinces and reverse its decision to download billions of new costs to the provinces?
