Mr. Speaker, I am happy to answer this question. One of the very first things we did as a new government was to lower taxes on middle-class Canadians. Nine million Canadians this year have lower taxes than they had last year, and that is helping them and their families have better lives.
More importantly, we put in place the Canada child benefit, which is helping nine out of 10 families with children, with $2,300 more on average, and without their having to pay tax on that $2,300. It is a much better situation for middle-class Canadians and those struggling to get into the middle class, with lower taxes today than they had before.
