Mr. Speaker, our government is committed to lowering taxes, and keeping them low for all Canadians. With the strong leadership of our Prime Minister we will balance the federal budget, and we are continuously putting forward measures to help Canadian families do the same.
We are proud that 11 million Canadians of all ages and income levels have opened an account that allows them to save tax-free with the tax-free savings account. We introduced the TFSAs as a way for Canadians to save for retirement, for their children's education, or for a down payment on a house. The vast majority of accounts belong to low- and middle-income earners.
However, the Liberals and the NDP will raise taxes and will reverse these benefits. They will implement a carbon tax that would hurt the Canadian economy and kill Canadian jobs.
The facts are clear. Only our Conservative government can be trusted to keep taxes low, and that is exactly what we are doing.
