Mr. Andrew Cash (Davenport, NDP): Mr. Speaker, Toronto has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country and housing prices are skyrocketing. More and more families are finding it harder to buy or rent a home in Toronto.
The Conservatives are out of touch with Toronto but New Democrats know that we need a jobs creation plan and more affordable housing.
Are the Conservatives planning another do nothing budget that fails to get the job done for all places holy and decent like the great city of Toronto?
Hon. Ted Menzies (Minister of State (Finance), CPC): Mr. Speaker, finally a question on the economy. I am happy to respond to that, especially because of the fact that our last two budgets actually focused on jobs and the economy. Both of those budgets were opposed by the NDP that claimed to come late to the show in actually talking about jobs.
However, we will be bringing forward a budget in the very near future and that also will focus on jobs and the economy because that is important. That is what Canadians want to talk about, which is why we will continue on that plan.
