Mr. Speaker, during question period, the Minister of National Revenue talked about the taxes paid by the wealthiest members of our society.
In order to set the record straight for Canadians, I ask for the consent of the House to table a document, issued by the Department of Finance, entitled “Annual Financial Report of the Government of Canada”. On page 16 of that report, it reads:
“Personal income tax revenues decreased by $1.2 billion...largely reflecting the impact of tax planning by high-income individuals...”.
I ask for the consent of the House.
