Mr. Andrew Saxton (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for Mississauga East—Cooksville for that excellent question.
To benefit that member's constituents and all Canadians, our Conservative government brought in historic relief that is saving $6,600 this year for a typical two-earner family of four. Under our government, Canadians are paying the lowest taxes in over 50 years.
However, the Liberal leader pledged to impose a mandatory $1,000 tax hike on middle-class workers. Now is simply not the time for risky NDP and Liberal high-tax schemes, reckless spending and untested leadership.
