Mr. Speaker, according to the report we received today, the deficit is now $300 billion.
I am afraid of what the government might do in this situation. It will do one of two things: it will either cut help to Canadians or shift the entire burden onto ordinary people. That is exactly what it must not do.
I urge the government to shift the burden onto those who have turned a profit. Is the government ready to make sure that the very wealthy pay their fair share?
