Mr. Speaker, last night we were pleased to see Parliament pass the jobs, growth and long-term prosperity act at second reading.
Our government has a proven track record on the economy. That is why I was so pleased to see over 58,000 jobs created last month alone.
Canada's economic action plan 2012 is full of measures for job creation, and the sooner this legislation passes, the sooner these measures can help create more jobs and economic growth.
We consulted far and wide on what Canadians wanted to see in the budget. In fact, we held over 150 consultations with businesses, families, stakeholders and individuals right across the country. It was overwhelmingly received by Canadians from coast to coast to coast.
The NDP members should quit playing their silly games, put Canadians' best interests first, and work with our government to pass this job-creating legislation.
