Mr. Andrew Cash (Davenport, NDP): Mr. Speaker, there was another hard blow for the Greater Toronto Area yesterday when 700 workers lost their jobs at Loblaws in Brampton.
Now that is Conservative corporate tax giveaways working. That means 700 families having to make ends meet with less, with less EI, in a very expensive city.
With the Ontario Liberals giving up on governing the province altogether, will the Conservatives finally take action and address the Toronto jobs crisis
Hon. Jim Flaherty (Minister of Finance, CPC): Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member knows, the Toronto area has done relatively well, particularly in the auto sector which has made a remarkable comeback after our government made sure that the sector could survive in Canada. The financial services sector is also very strong in the GTA, and continues to grow and show the kind of strength that Canada has in that sector and has internationally.
We will continue on the agenda for jobs, growth and prosperity. I hope the member will support the second budget bill.
