Mr. Speaker, our government is lowering taxes. We are bringing forward measures that help create new jobs. The Liberals and the New Democratic Party are pushing a high-tax, high-debt agenda that would threaten jobs. The New Democratic Party is pushing a $21-billion carbon tax, and that would hurt our economy and kill Canadian jobs.
We know that monthly job numbers can be volatile, but what is more important is the long-term trend. Since the recession, we have created 1.2 million net new jobs. They are overwhelmingly full-time jobs in the private sector.
