Déficit budgétaire, Dépenses publiques, Deuxième lecture, Infrastructure, Programmes

Madam Speaker, I have no problem explaining that. I believe that the deficit exists everywhere you go: it exists in our infrastructure, in our society, and in our government. Personally, I want us to invest in the future of our country, in our infrastructure, in all the programs that we need to implement. I do not want to ignore those things in order to achieve a certain number. I want to invest, and that is what our government is doing.

Madame la Présidente, je n'ai aucune difficulté à expliquer cet enjeu. Pour moi, le déficit existe peu importe où: il existe dans notre infrastructure, dans notre société ou dans le gouvernement. Moi, je veux qu'on investisse dans l'avenir de notre pays, dans nos infrastructures, dans tous les programmes que nous avons besoin de faire. Je ne veux pas tout laisser tomber pour avoir un chiffre en particulier. Je veux investir, et c'est cela que nous faisons comme gouvernement.
