Mr. Speaker, all his promises are not working.
We wish everyone a merry Christmas, but it will not be merry for a lot of people. One in five Canadians are skipping meals. There is a 20% increase in the cost of a turkey dinner for the average family. One Ontario food bank CEO said, “clients...are telling us they're considering medically assisted death or suicide because they can't live in grinding poverty anymore.”
This is after seven years of the Prime Minister. He can promise whatever he wants, but these are the results he has actually delivered.
How does he justify the $4.6 billion of waste when people cannot afford to eat?
