Mr. Speaker, I think the double taxation in the 1950s was probably higher.
He actually did not listen very carefully to my speech because, since the Conservatives and the Liberals came to power in the late 1990s, the gap between the rich and the poor has widened. We are talking here about poverty—there are more and more inequalities—and the government's role in sharing the wealth. In fact, the beauty of our federal system is the redistribution of wealth to reduce these gaps between the rich and the poor. I believe this government has completely abrogated its moral duty as a government to ensure that, regardless of where we live or the circumstances in which we were born, we have our fair share of that wealth.
