Hon. Monte Solberg (Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, I thank the very hard-working MP and someone who understands better than most the challenges of raising children.
Not only does the CLC have its facts wrong, its philosophy is a disaster. This year our government's child care transfers to the provinces will be almost double what they have reported, but when it comes to philosophy, the CLC, the NDP, the Bloc, and the Liberals dismiss the role of parents in raising children.
In fact, not only would the Liberal leader make gasoline and home heating fuel more expensive, he would take away the universal child care benefit from Canadian families for reasons that elude me.
