Mr. Speaker, what is shameful is that this Prime Minister is causing homelessness in this country. He has caused the doubling of the number of people eating at a food bank in Toronto. One single mother in Sydney said, “Well, this month, I had to choose between eating and having heat. My kids are getting fed, but my house is freezing.” The Prime Minister's solution is to quadruple the carbon tax on that single mother and on seniors.
We have a common-sense Conservative bill to take the carbon tax off farmers and food. Why did the Prime Minister manipulate and intimidate Liberal senators into blocking that bill? Why does he want to tax food right before Christmas?
