Hon. John McKay (Scarborough—Guildwood, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, we are told that we can tell whether the Prime Minister is telling the truth or not by looking into his eyes. Canadians want to believe that when a Prime Minister makes a promise he will keep it.
Will the Prime Minister look into the eyes of two million hard-working Canadians and explain his betrayal of the income trust promise?
Mr. Speaker, when commenting on the TSX decline in public offerings, the CEO of the TSX said: “The federal government knee-capped the income trust industry and it hurt our reputation abroad”.
We now have a finance minister running around the country saying “invest anywhere but Ontario”. The Prime Minister has broken his word on income trusts, on the Atlantic accord, on equalization, on capital gains taxes and he trash talks the people of Ontario.
Why should Canadians believe the Prime Minister?
