Mr. John Williams

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I would like to congratulate the President of the Treasury Board. As the chair of the public accounts committee for many years, we asked for, demanded, that these documents be tabled openly and publicly rather than surreptitiously through the back door. I would like to congratulate the minister for doing so.

Mr. John Williams

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I have listened to these continuous quotes by the member for Yukon. These are unattributed quotes that do not appear in any publication.

We are having a debate, but he is trotting out these unattributed quotes that we cannot follow up to find out if they are genuine or otherwise. If he has a problem with the issue or if he is supporting the motion on the floor, let him speak to it rather than come out with this stuff that we cannot understand and have no idea whether it is factual or otherwise.

Mr. John Williams (Edmonton—St. Albert, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, the Liberal Party, as we know, is well known for using public funds for it's own party's benefit. However, we say taxpayers' money should be spent wisely and transparently for the public benefit.

My question--

Mr. John Williams

Telling the truth makes them a little testy, Mr. Speaker.

Does the President of the Treasury Board have any plans for the management of grants and contributions to ensure openness, transparency, accountability and proper supervision without endless red tape for the recipients?

Mr. John Williams (Edmonton—St. Albert, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, people work five days a week, 250 days of the year. That actually works out to $5 a day, not $3 a day, because children do not go to day care seven days a week. Will the member please get his math straight.

Many Canadians live in rural Canada. What benefits did he or his party ever propose for people living on family farms a long way from urban day care?

My next question is quite simple. Given the fact that today a former member of the Government of Canada was found guilty and two other guys are already in jail because his party lost $100 million, what benefit was that to Canadians as they were filling their pockets courtesy of the taxpayer?
