Mr. Myron Thompson (Wild Rose, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, it seems that the Liberals are getting lazy in the dog days of summer and their lethargic ways are hurting my farmers. My farmers are demanding barley marketing freedom. In my province alone, three-quarters of farmers want marketing choice and make that 90% in the riding of Wild Rose.

Can the minister update the House on where the barley marketing freedom legislation is today?

Mr. Myron Thompson (Wild Rose, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the residents of Wild Rose, I have two petitions to present today.

The first petition comes from the great and beautiful city of Airdrie and surrounding area. The petitioners are calling upon the members of Parliament to enact stronger laws and harsher penalties for sexual assault offenders, suggesting: first, that offenders should receive a minimum of 10 years jail time, with no parole; second, that offenders must attend rehabilitation; and third, that the public be notified upon the release of a sexual offender.

Mr. Speaker, the second petition comes from two great communities, my home town of Sundre, Alberta, and the area close by of Caroline.

The petitioners request that Parliament continue to investigate the location and possible allocation of the $40 million of taxpayer money which mysteriously went missing and vanished under the Liberal Party of Canada during the sponsorship scandal.

Mr. Myron Thompson (Wild Rose, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, in my riding and in most of Alberta there is a real labour shortage. As a result of the budget, I now have people contacting me on a regular basis telling me how excited they are. They are people over the age of 65 who are now able to go and help out in so many cases, particularly in the service industries that have been looking for help. These people have been willing to work but they would not because of the clawbacks in the past. Now they are excited about being able to get out into the community and make an extra few hundred dollars a month.

Not only that, many of them now have their T4 slips and are starting to apply for their tax returns. They are amazed at the amount of taxes they are going to get back because of income splitting and so many other breaks that the budgets are providing.

I do not know if the member would agree with me, but I have a hard time understanding why anyone in the House would not support a budget that does a great deal for our seniors, who are very excited about it.
