Mr. Speaker, one year ago today, Canadians went to the polls and they sent political parties of all stripes a very clear message. They are tired of the games. They want us to put the interest of Canadians first.
I promised in that election that if I came back we would fight for a national dental care plan, and I am pleased to see it is one of the top priorities in Parliament this session. We are pushing for a doubling of the GST tax credit to help people who are getting gouged relentlessly by the big oil and grocery barons. We are pushing the government to insist on a low-income tax supplement because times are hard for people.
Democracy is a fragile thing, and we all need to do more in an age of disinformation, conspiracy theories and the rising threat of political intimidation. We need to rebuild trust with Canadians. I make it my promise in this session of Parliament to work harder to maintain the trust of the people who sent me here.
