Mr. Speaker, we voted against it because it was a bad budget that did not serve Canadians. That is what we voted against.
Canadians do not want cuts to front-line services that are designed to ensure public safety, but the Conservatives are not listening. Not only have they cut border guards, they are also cutting one-quarter of Canada's sniffer dogs. Taking away this effective detection will make smuggling easier. All of this as the minister authorized himself a lavish executive retreat in Montreal last week, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.
How does the minister justify this spending when the government is cutting so much that even the dogs are getting pink slips?
