Déficit budgétaire, Étape du rapport, Infrastructure

Mr. Speaker, with nine days of debate, we are not facing a major debate deficit.

If the Conservatives want to go after us on deficits, they have quite a record. The Conservatives have passed maybe four budgets since 1900 that actually had a surplus. I am not going to take any great lectures from the Conservatives.

There is a huge deficit in our infrastructure. There is so much work that needs to be done. The member wants to put the deficit in our infrastructure and in our communities instead of in our line items.

It is important that we do this correctly. We need to invest in our country, in our communities, to build for the future.

Monsieur le Président, avec neuf jours de débat, on peut difficilement parler d'un gros déficit.

En matière de déficit, les conservateurs sont mal placés pour s'en prendre à nous. Depuis 1990, ils ont adopté peut-être quatre budgets enregistrant un surplus. Je n'ai pas de leçon à recevoir des conservateurs.

Nous avons un immense déficit en matière d'infrastructure. Le travail à faire est énorme. Le député préfère que le déficit soit au niveau des infrastructures et de nos collectivités plutôt que dans le budget.

Il est important que nous fassions bien les choses. Nous devons investir dans notre pays, dans nos collectivités, pour bâtir en prévision de l'avenir.
