Question – Will the Prime Minister say how he’ll pay the debt?
Will the Prime Minister say how he’ll pay the debt?
Bob Benzen: Mr. Speaker, during the recent by-election I knocked on thousands of doors in Calgary Heritage and I heard many concerns from voters about the Liberals. The majority of the people I spoke with were seriously concerned about the Prime Minister reckless spending with no plans to pay it back.
Will the Prime Minister acknowledge these concerns and finally explain to Calgarians how he is going to balance the budget and pay down the debt?
Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister: Mr. Speaker, I welcome the member for Calgary Heritage to the House and I wish him all the best in serving his constituents.
I want to highlight that his predecessor had actually the worst record on growth of any prime minister since R.B. Bennett, and that is what we are working on turning around. We are going to ensure that through delivering more money to the pockets of middle-class families through investing in things like transit, waste water treatment plants, and flood protection for cities like Calgary.
We are going to ensure better economic opportunities for citizens and better growth for our entire country. That is our approach.
