Government bills, Second reading,

Deuxième lecture

Madam Speaker, I would like to ask my colleague from Calgary Forest Lawn whether he has studied Canada's economic history at all. He talks about history, but he is not familiar with it. He should be, since the Conservative member has been here for a long time.

Conservative governments have a history of deficits, debts, cuts, and negative growth. Not once have the Conservatives managed to leave a balanced budget for their successors. They do not invest. They simply spend. There is a big difference between the two.

Has the member for Calgary Forest Lawn studied the history of previous Conservative governments, or does he simply get his facts from their advertisements?

His government left us with a $150-billion debt, yet that money did not produce anything new. Hypocrisy is a Conservative value.

Madame la Présidente, j'aimerais demander à mon collègue de Calgary Forest Lawn s'il a un peu étudié l'histoire économique du Canada. Il parle de l'histoire, mais il ne la connaît pas. Comme le député conservateur est ici depuis longtemps, il devrait vraiment mieux la connaître.

L'histoire des gouvernements conservateurs en est une de déficits, de dettes, de coupes et de décroissance. Les conservateurs n'ont jamais réussi à laisser un budget équilibré à leurs successeurs. Ils n'investissent pas, ils dépensent, tout simplement. Il y a une grande différence entre les deux.

Le député de Calgary Forest Lawn a-t-il étudié l'histoire des gouvernements conservateurs précédents ou prend-il ses faits uniquement dans leurs annonces publicitaires?

Son gouvernement nous a laissé une dette de 150 milliards de dollars. Pourtant, cet argent n'a rien donné de nouveau. L'hypocrisie, c'est une valeur conservatrice.
