And the Budget never came into being. Those poor people got poorer because of the social democratic alliance between two Parties. They joined together to keep people in poverty, to continue to receive government cheques, and to vote for them.
Why do we need a western diversification program in 1988? We need it today because the two social democratic Parties, in alliance, with public policies over time, 17 to 18 years in a row, created a situation, an advantage for certain regions of the country, and a disadvantage for other regions so that they could send out more cheques. This Party believes in sending out more jobs-more jobs for Atlantic Canada, more jobs for western Canada. In three and a half years we have created one and a quarter million new jobs.
