Mr. Speaker, Canada's debt is by far the lowest of all the G7 countries, and our record on job creation is the best, with over 900,000 net new jobs created since July 2009.
We are working to improve the economy, but the NDP wants to impose a $21 billion job-killing carbon tax on Canadians.
The NDP's $21 billion carbon tax would have a devastating impact on Canadian families because it would raise the price of everything from gas to groceries to electricity and all other goods and services.
Our government has held over 200 economic consultations over the past six weeks, and it is clear that Canadians do not want an NDP-style carbon tax.
Our priorities are jobs and long-term economic growth, and that is why Canadians trust our government.
