Mr. Speaker, the government realized back in the fall of 2015 that it needed to lower taxes on middle-class Canadians.
When people say things, it does not make them true. The fact of the matter is that nine million middle-class Canadians have lower taxes, because we lowered the tax bracket between $45,000 and $90,000 by 7%. We added on the Canada child benefit, making sure that nine out of 10 families are better off.
The facts are clear. In 2019, a typical family is $2,000 better off than in 2015 under the previous government.
