Mr. Speaker, I thank the opposition member for her question. I was hoping that I would not be forgotten today and that I would be asked at least one question. This gives me the opportunity to rise for the first time as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance and remind the opposition that our government's objective is a fairer tax system.
The current system is inherently unfair and allows wealthy Canadians to incorporate so they pay a lower rate of tax than the middle class.
We think that we need to keep taxes low for the middle class and SMEs, while asking all Canadians to pay their fair share.
