Mr. Speaker, later today, the Minister of Finance will deliver our economic action plan 2013, a plan to create jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity.
Our economic action plan stands in sharp contrast to the risky NDP, who would hike taxes on the job creators and kill thousands of jobs in Canada. Where the NDP leader was not attacking the pro-Canadian Keystone XL project in Washington last week, he was demanding a $34 billion tax hike on job creators.
The Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters report that if the NDP had its way, there would be 200,000 fewer Canadians working today. The NDP leader's plan to kill 200,000 Canadian jobs is just more proof that Canadians cannot afford the risky economic theories of the NDP.
