Mr. Speaker, as the son of immigrants, I say that it is embedded in us to seize every opportunity to work hard, give back to our communities and continue building a better Canada that works for everyone. This is a simple teaching that has become a beacon for many, and a reason for the residents of Mississauga—Lakeshore to elect a new MP, my dear friend Charles Sousa.
On this side of the house we know that a prosperous future for all Canadians requires responsible leadership and targeted support. That is why we show up. Our Prime Minister was in Mississauga—Lakeshore, unlike the Leader of the Opposition. Plainly and simply, our government has been there for Canadians through every challenge by putting more money back in their pockets when they need it most.
Our commitment is unwavering. This Christmas, families in Mississauga—Lakeshore, Vaughan—Woodbridge and across the country will continue to receive direct support from the programs our government has put forward, programs the people of Mississauga—Lakeshore clearly support.
To all Canadians, and those residents in my riding of Vaughan—Woodbridge, I thank them for a year led by their generosity and compassion.
Merry Christmas, buon natale and happy new year.
