Mr. Jean-Claude Malepart (Laurier-Sainte-Marie):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Right Hon. Prime Minister.
Yesterday, when he brought down his Budget, the Quebec Finance Minister stated that as a result of cutbacks in the Tory Government's Budget, Quebec would suffer a loss of $1.3 billion over the next three years. As a result of these cutbacks, there will be 2,400 fewer spaces in daycare, a shortfall of $150 million for health care, hospital services and post-secondary education and a shortfall of $23 million for the Programme de renovation des logements.
Is the Prime Minister aware of the serious consequences of his latest Budget for all Quebecers?
