Madam Speaker, if the Conservatives would like to talk about budget fraud, we can look at about 100 and something years of Conservative history. I am wondering if the Conservatives know the last time that a Conservative government went from a budget deficit to a budget surplus. It was when John A. Macdonald managed to go from a deficit to a surplus in his time in office and he was a Liberal-Conservative.

When the Conservatives talk about budget fraud, I am really not sure who they are talking about. Are they talking about their own long history of dishonesty in government?

Madame la Présidente, puisque les conservateurs souhaitent parler de fraude budgétaire, examinons la centaine d'années d'histoire de ce parti. Je me demande si les conservateurs savent à quand remonte la dernière fois où un gouvernement conservateur est passé d'un déficit budgétaire à un excédent budgétaire. C'était à l'époque où John A. Macdonald était premier ministre, et c'était un libéral-conservateur.

Les conservateurs parlent de fraude budgétaire, mais je ne suis pas sûr de quoi il est question. Parlent-ils de leur longue histoire marquée par des gouvernements malhonnêtes?
