Mr. Speaker, the long-term trend is positive with 1.2 million net new jobs. Our plan for tax cuts, training and trade is creating jobs.
The member across the way said that people earning less than $60,000 a year are wealthy. Let me quote from the Financial Post today, “Working-class finds ways to max out TFSAs” and “60% of Canadians who earn less than $60K”.
The NDP's plan to roll back tax-free savings accounts would raise taxes on thousands of Canadians earning less than $60,000 a year. That is an attack on the middle class, and we will not allow it.
