Mr. Speaker, the leader of the NDP is trying to mislead Canadians and concoct an economic policy that would be bad for Canada's provinces and bad for employment.
The leader of the NDP is fixated on development of our natural resources. He even goes so far as to say that our natural resources have a disease.
According to him, developing natural resources such as fossil fuels in the western provinces is bad for employment in Quebec. The leader of the NDP is wrong. Canada's natural resources are giving us a unique opportunity to create thousands of jobs and generate billions of dollars that will translate into economic prosperity across the country.
The NDP and its leader are just making things up and trying to divide the country in order to make political gains.
It is totally irresponsible.
