Ms. Wasylycia-Leis

If the member would give me another few hours I could certainly list a variety of measures, especially under the taxation system to deal with precisely that question.
One other quick example is that if we did something as simple as environmental conservation in energy efficiency in our own public buildings, retrofit them, with a small investment we could create 4,000 jobs very quickly. That would not be a cost because it would pay for itself in a short time. There are dozens and dozens of ideas. We will keep bringing them forward in the House. I look forward to the member's supporting our proposals.
