Balanced budget, Government bills, Report stage

Budget équilibré, Étape du rapport,

Madam Speaker, the only thing that is rich about the Conservatives' legacy is their own description of it.

Many of their statements are not exactly up to date. The Conservatives did not manage to balance the budget one single time in the 20th century. The last time they managed to balance it was in the 19th century.

They claim to be good economic managers, but with their magic economist, the former prime minister, I have a hard time believing that claim.

Can the member talk about the Conservatives' real history with balanced budgets?

Madame la Présidente, en ce qui concerne l'héritage des conservateurs, il n'y a que leur description de celui-ci qui soit riche.

Disons que plusieurs de ces déclarations ne sont pas tout à fait à jour. Les conservateurs n'ont pas réussi à équilibrer le budget une seule fois au cours du XXe siècle. La dernière fois qu'ils y sont parvenus, c'était au XIXe siècle.

Alors, lorsqu'ils disent être de bons gestionnaires de l'économie, avec leur économiste magique, l'ancien premier ministre, j'ai du mal à y croire.

Le député peut-il nous parler de la vraie histoire des budgets équilibrés des conservateurs?
