Mr. Speaker, the government is looking through rose-coloured glasses.
The reality is that inflation is eroding Canadians' morale. The cost of food is up 10.8% over last year, the largest increase in the last 40 years. Parents are struggling to feed their children properly and have to make agonizing choices.
This government, however, wants to raise taxes for taxpayers who are already stretched to the limit.
The question is very simple. Will the Prime Minister give Canadians a break, yes or no, and promise not to raise taxes any further?
