Mr. Speaker, again, those just are not the facts. Thanks to the economic action plan, Canada has enjoyed a strong economic performance during both the recession and the recovery.
Over one million net new jobs have been created, of which over 80% are in the private sector and 85% are full time.
The IMF and the OECD both project that Canada will have among the strongest growth in all G7 countries in the years ahead. For the sixth straight year, we have a top credit rating.
The opposition should not be so pessimistic.
