The Chair should ban such blatant campaigning in the House, Madam Speaker.
My question is directed to the Deputy Prime Minister who will be aware of the IMF report released in Washington which indicated that, of the seven major industrialized nations, Canada's deficit was the highest of those nations in proportion to the size of its economy. As the Minister will know, because of his background in finance, this has an adverse effect on interest rates and employment capacity. Will the Deputy Prime Minister tell the House how his Government proposes to correct these disastrous policy errors which have been so clearly censured by the IMF in an international report last week?
