Madam Speaker, I appreciate the hon. member's words. I think we all in this House want to tackle poverty.
The member mentioned a few things in her speech about the problem around poverty, but the system we have is that the government needs to do more. More government to solve the problem that government cannot do confuses me.
If the hon. member wants to eradicate poverty, maybe the NDP should not adopt policies that put people out of work, take more off their paycheques, and put businesses out of business. We all know that small businesses hire people. What happens when they leave? Business close up and we have blight. Blight moves in.
Instead of more taxes, more government regulation, maybe we should see less of that. I would like to hear her comments.
