Budgetary policy

Politique budgétaire

Mr. Speaker, the budget that we tabled a few weeks ago will help those most in need, seniors, the regions, and education. It will improve infrastructure and invest in Internet access and indigenous communities. It includes hundreds of pages of large and small changes that will benefit the country, which the former government simply turned its back on. We have begun to resolve the problems left by the Conservative government, but we are not finished yet, because the Conservatives did a great deal of damage.

Does the member for Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouata—Les Basques not find that the budget is an improvement? Even though the changes do not go as far as he would like, does he not support the investment programs, the changes, and the improvements that will help the poorest Canadians, our seniors, our young people, our infrastructure, and our indigenous communities?

There is still work to be done, but in the meantime, does the member think that opposing these progressive changes will help Canadians?

Monsieur le Président, le budget que nous avons déposé il y a déjà quelques semaines permettra d'aider les plus démunis, les aînés, les régions et l'éducation. Il améliore les infrastructures, en plus d'investir dans l'accès Internet et dans les communautés autochtones. Il comprend des centaines de pages de petits et de grands changements qui sont à l'avantage du pays que l'ancien gouvernement a tout simplement laissé tomber. Nous commençons à régler les problèmes laissés par le gouvernement conservateur. Nous n'avons pas encore fini, car les conservateurs ont causé beaucoup de dommages.

Le député de Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouata—Les Basques ne trouve-t-il pas que le budget constitue une amélioration? Même si les changements ne vont pas aussi loin qu'il le voudrait, n'appuie-t-il pas les programmes d'investissement, ainsi que les changements et les améliorations qui aideront nos plus démunis, nos aînés, nos jeunes, nos infrastructures et nos communautés autochtones?

Il reste du travail à faire, mais entretemps, croit-il que s'opposer à ces changements progressifs aide le peuple canadien?
