Mr. Speaker, last fall's Speech from the Throne made a vague reference to the government's commitment to balanced budget legislation.
On October 22, the Minister of Finance assured me and this House that the government intended to introduce balanced budget legislation, although his explanation as to what that might look like was somewhat perplexing.
On Wednesday I supported budget 2014, and I congratulate the government on its commitment to balancing the budget. However, I remain concerned about future budgets and future governments.
Why is there no mention of balanced budget legislation in the government's budget plan?
