Mr. Speaker, the leader of the opposition recently announced his shadow cabinet, a team that threatens dangerous economic experiments, job killing taxes and reckless spending that Canadians simply cannot afford.
He made the member for Halifax his deputy leader and environment critic. The member does not stand with Canadians. She has, in fact, travelled to a foreign capital to lobby a foreign government not to support Canada's oil and gas sector and jobs for thousands of Canadians.
When faced with a choice between radical special interest groups that oppose Canada's ability to develop its natural resources and the ordinary Canadian families that benefit from that prosperity, the member of Parliament for Halifax would side with the radicals.
With the NDP against development of natural resources, it is no wonder Christopher Smillie, who represents around 200,000 trades workers, warned that the NDP would be very bad for workers and the entire Canadian economy.
