Mr. Andrew Saxton (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, we are proud to introduce a balanced budget and a plan for job creation and economic growth while keeping taxes low. Thanks to our low-tax plan, the average Canadian family of four now has an extra $6,600 in their pockets every year.
Here is what the opposition is not telling people: The Liberals and the NDP want high taxes on middle-class families, high taxes on middle-class seniors, and high taxes on middle-class consumers. That is their plan: higher taxes for the middle class.
Our Conservative government is lowering taxes on the middle class and lowering taxes for all Canadians.
