Madam Speaker, I am honoured to rise once again and represent the great communities of Bradford, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King and the Chippewas of Georgina Island as the member of Parliament for York—Simcoe.
My constituents have sent me to Ottawa with one clear message: the federal government is not working for them.
Rural communities are being left behind. They have limited or non-existent broadband internet. They are faced with outrageous costs just to heat their homes.
Small businesses are struggling. There is no affordable housing to be found. Environmental projects like the Lake Simcoe clean-up fund remain unfunded.
The government's out of control spending has led to billions of dollars in deficits, but communities like mine have nothing to show for it.
Under the Liberals, Canada is borrowing just to keep the lights on. Clearly, vital projects like roads and hospitals are just not being built.
People are tired of politicians who keep kicking the can down the road. I will stand up to the Liberal government and fight for my community and the people who call it home.
