Eighth? I am sorry. It is the eighth consecutive balanced budget. I was underestimating how good we are.
We have this budget bill, Bill C-48, which will assist those who are less well off in our society.
The hon. member across has said, in a kind of Hobbesian state of nature way of looking at things, to just reduce taxes and let people fend for themselves, presumably where life will be brutish and short, as Thomas Hobbes used to say, and that will fix everything.
I do not agree with that way of looking at it and I do not believe Canadians do either. We are here for the greater good as well as ourselves individually.
