Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his remarks.
As I said, the NDP wants to deal with the Liberals. It is looking at what we are doing. For us, the goal is clear and that is to work for the middle class. I do not want to waste my time analyzing the NDP's position because it is nonsense.
The motion was moved and we very much hope that the Conservative government will reconsider, just as the late Jim Flaherty wanted to in caucus. Unfortunately, we know what happened. All members of Parliament are mourning the passing of Mr. Flaherty.
The question is simple. Let us reject this income splitting approach because it does nothing to help the middle class. Instead, the most affluent Canadians will get richer.
