Mr. Gérard Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, I would like to refresh the memories of the Prime Minister and all his Liberal henchmen.

Four years ago, he promised that they would run three small deficits and then balance the budget in 2019. Four years later we know what really happened: they ran three big deficits and then a $20-billion deficit in their so-called zero-deficit year.

Again, I ask the Prime Minister: Will he stand in his place, look Canadians in the eye and tell them, “I lied to you”, since that is what he did?

Mr. Gérard Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, unfortunately I have some very bad news for our friend the Prime Minister of Canada.

Sadly, we all remember when he suggested that budgets balance themselves. I have bad news for him, but especially for Canadians: in the four years he has been Prime Minister, there have been four budgets and four consecutive deficits. That is the hallmark of this Prime Minister.

Since he promised exactly the opposite four years ago, could he stand in his place, on this last day when we can ask him questions, look Canadians in the eye and tell them, “I was wrong”?

Mr. Gérard Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, I just want to say to the member to be patient: four months and it will be done.

As everyone knows, the government has not done a single thing since announcing Trans Mountain. Not one spadeful of soil has been turned, not one inch of pipeline has been built. The government has not built a thing, but it has taken a 2,500-kilometre detour by sending Canadians' money to Houston, which is 2,500 kilometres away from here. That is the only thing the Liberals have done.

In a couple of hours, they will announce that Trans Mountain is going ahead. When will shovels be in the ground?

Mr. Gérard Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, the Liberals have some nerve talking about lack of respect. The Liberal Party and the Liberal leader have little respect for Canadian energy and none at all for oil industry workers.

The Prime Minister has no respect for people who work on pipelines. He wants to eliminate oil and he wants it to be expensive, as well. That is what the Liberals want. We know that the government will be giving the Trans Mountain expansion the green light a few hours from now.

The question is, when will the shovels actually be in the ground?
