Denis Lebel (Conservative MP for Lac-Saint-Jean, Québec)
Mr. Speaker, Canada is not in a recession. This is no time to borrow money that will have to be repaid indefinitely by our children and grandchildren.
I would like to once again quote the Montreal Economic Institute, which said, “The best way to stimulate growth is to remove obstacles for entrepreneurs and innovators by reducing taxes and the regulatory burden.”
Of course, we on this side of the House agree with that.
Can the Minister of Finance tell us what taxes he will raise in order to be able to balance the budget?
