Mr. Speaker, I would like to begin by wishing everyone a merry Christmas and happy holidays. However, it will not be very happy for some people. Unfortunately, the cost of putting Christmas dinner on the table has gone up by 20% since 2021. In fact, one Mississauga food bank has reported that not only are people visiting the food bank for food, but some of its client have said they are contemplating medical assistance in dying because they cannot afford to pay their bills.
How can the Prime Minister justify wasting so much money when people cannot even afford to eat?
