Impôt sur le revenu, Troisième lecture et adoption,

Mr. Speaker, I greatly appreciate the correction made by my colleague from Louis-Saint-Laurent.

I want to tell him that it has been a very long time since the Conservatives managed to balance a budget. They had surpluses in or around 1871, 1912, 2006 and 2007. They left surpluses, but they always inherited them from the Liberals. They have not balanced a budget in about 140 years. When he talks about deficits, he is not being quite honest.

I will stop there, but I am interested in hearing the questions from the member for Louis-Saint-Laurent.

Monsieur le Président, j'apprécie beaucoup la correction de mon collègue de Louis-Saint-Laurent.

Je tiens à dire à lui dire que cela fait très longtemps que les conservateurs ont réussi à nous sortir d'un déficit. Ils ont eu plusieurs budgets qui avaient des surplus: vers 1871, en 1912, en 2006 et en 2007. Ils ont donc laissé des surplus, mais ils les avaient toujours hérités des libéraux. Depuis environ 140 ans, ils n'ont pas réussi à équilibrer le budget. Quand il parle de déficit, ce n'est pas tout à fait honnête.

Je m'arrêterai ici, mais j'ai hâte d'entendre les questions du député de Louis-Saint-Laurent.
