Mr. Speaker, I feel a draft coming from the other side.
New Democrats understand that getting results for people is job one and that is why more and more people are putting their trust in the NDP.
Let us recall that even Paul Martin, the Liberals' corporate tax cutter in chief, also with scandals hanging over his head, was willing to work with others. New Democrats negotiated a budget amendment for $4.6 billion for Canadians' priorities like transit, housing, and education.
It can be done, but the Conservatives refuse to do it. Why are they refusing to amend their budget?
