Mr. Parm Gill (Brampton—Springdale, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, being a prime minister is not an entry level job. It requires someone who is able to focus on what matters to Canadians: creating jobs, ensuring economic growth, and keeping communities safe. We already have the right guy for the job, and that is our Prime Minister.

The Liberal leader thinks budgets balance themselves and tax cuts that benefit every family are not what is fair. When given the opportunity to comment on world affairs, he blamed Putin's aggression toward Ukraine on a hockey game. That is not leadership. That is the Liberal leader showing time and time again that he is just not ready for the job.

Mr. Parm Gill (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Trade, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, no government has done more to advance Canada's trade interests than this Conservative government right here. Our government has concluded free trade agreements with 38 countries, with many more to come.

Had the member actually reviewed the statistics, she would have found, if we factor in the recent decline in energy prices, that our exports are actually up 6.2% compared to last year.

When the Liberals were in power, in 13 years they got three deals done, compared to our government, which since taking office has signed 38 free trade agreements.

Mr. Parm Gill (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Trade, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, let me first start by thanking the hard-working member for Chatham-Kent—Essex.

Today the Minister of International Trade announced that he will lead a multi-sector trade mission to Israel, focused on supporting small and medium-sized businesses. Canada deeply values its close ties with Israel. As the Prime Minister highlighted during his state visit in 2014, Israel is an example to the world, a nation whose response to suffering has been to build an extraordinary society, a vibrant democracy, and an innovative, world-leading start-up nation. Our government is ambitious about what our countries can achieve together.

Mr. Parm Gill (Brampton—Springdale, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, the Liberals only have one plan for the economy, and it is to increase taxes. Recently, the Liberal leader talked about implementing the tax proposed by Kathleen Wynne, Liberal premier of Ontario. That would cost each person earning $60,000 a year $1,000 a year in a tax hike. Small and medium-sized businesses, which are the backbone of our economy, would also be subject to the same $1,000 tax hike per year. That would kill jobs and be very costly for Canadian families.

We are doing the opposite, and we are cutting taxes.

Mr. Parm Gill (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Trade, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, our government will continue to promote Canadian trade interests across all sectors of our economy, including supply management. That has never prevented us from successfully completing other free trade agreements, such as free trade with the European Union and South Korea. We make no apologies for ensuring that any deal reached must be in Canada's best interests. As always, we will only sign trade agreements if it significantly benefits Canadian businesses, workers, and families.
