Mr. Speaker, Canadian families recognize that the Conservative government is the only party that understands the needs of parents.
That is why we have lowered taxes for families and enhanced the universal child care benefit, which will provide significant support to four million families with children.
In fact, this is one of the biggest packages of tax relief for Canadian families in modern Canadian history. The vast majority of these benefits will go to low- or medium-income families.
Sadly, the New Democrats and Liberals have not followed our lead in supporting Canadian families to choose the type of child care that works for them. Instead, the New Democrats have pledged to undo our support and impose a one-size-fits-all bureaucratic scheme that would fail to do anything for 90% of families, while the Liberals, simply put, would take this money away. That is shameful. The NDP and the Liberals need to stop listening to elites and start listening to real Canadian parents.
Our government remains the only one that supports moms and dads in making the best decisions for their families.
