The Economy  Mr. Speaker, I was raised on a farm where I learned the value of money and the importance of financial planning. With every budget the Liberals put out, they continue to add billions of dollars to our national debt. This is not budgeting, this is reckless spending. There are now

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, there are several aspects to this; that is correct. However, the TPP, for instance, had more quota reductions than what is being proposed now. This is one area where the Liberals gave up more than what was previously agreed upon.
