Government bills, Income tax, Third reading and adoption

Impôt sur le revenu, Troisième lecture et adoption,

Mr. Speaker, the riding of Laurentides—Labelle is huge, and it has diverse economic needs. This riding is a rather poor one. Any assistance for a riding like mine is very much appreciated.

My riding has 43 municipalities, and the poverty rate is rather high. For a long time, there was a lack of investment from the federal government. We are trying to fix that situation with infrastructure spending and tax changes. This is part of a comprehensive plan that will help regions like mine and my colleague's. That is very important to our community.

Monsieur le Président, le comté de Laurentides—Labelle est énorme et les besoins économiques sont diversifiés. C'est un comté qui est pas mal démuni. Ainsi, toute l'aide qu'on peut accorder à un comté comme le mien est bien appréciée.

Le comté compte 43 villes, et le niveau de pauvreté est assez élevé. Depuis longtemps, il y a un manque d'investissements de la part du fédéral. On essaie de régler cela avec les infrastructures et les changements apportés à l'impôt. Cela fait partie d'un grand programme qui aidera les régions comme la mienne et celle de mon collègue. C'est très important pour notre communauté.
