Mr. Speaker, this week marks the ninth anniversary of our Conservative government, during which time we have provided real results to Canadians.
We have cut taxes more than 160 times, reducing the federal tax burden to its lowest level in 50 years and saving the average family $3,400; supported families with children, including the universal child care benefit, the child tax credit, and the children's fitness tax credit; provided $2.8 billion for seniors and pensioners in annual tax relief, and $5.8 billion this year for B.C. health care and social services. We have concluded free trade agreements with 38 countries; invested in public infrastructure and transportation; and passed tough-on-crime reforms, cracking down on gun and gang crime and violent and repeat offenders.
Our Conservative government is making positive changes that are improving the lives of my constituents, British Columbians, and all Canadians.
