Mr. Alan Redway (York East):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Finance. Are the reports true that the Government intends to give a tax break to food companies which donate surplus food to food banks? Whether this is true or not, would the Minister of Finance not agree that it would make much more sense to address the problem of why the number of food banks is increasing even though we are in a period of relative prosperity, rather than giving tax breaks which will in fact encourage more food banks to be created?
