Mr. Speaker, Canadians are breathing a sigh of relief, knowing that the Liberal Statistics Canada data grab has been held at bay. Canadians rose up against this out-of-touch Liberal scheme to secretly access their personal financial records, and our Conservative team listened to them. We stood up for the privacy rights of Canadians and we stood up for the principle that government does not demand Canadians' information, it asks Canadians for permission for their information.
The Liberals did not listen. They condescendingly accused concerned Canadians of being fearmongers and digital neanderthals. Well, Canadians won and the out-of-touch Liberal elites lost. The Conservatives will hold the Liberals accountable, and we will remain vigilant in defending Canadians from this intrusive policy.
