Mr. Speaker, the last election campaign was fought on two very different visions of the economic growth this country needed.
The previous Conservative government spent its time on boutique tax credits and advantages for the wealthiest one per cent, while we knew Canadians needed real growth that would support the middle class, needed investments in infrastructure that were long overdue, needed the kind of support for a forward-thinking economic and environmental vision that went together.
These are the things Canadians asked for. They asked for real change. That is exactly what they got.
