Elizabeth May:  Mr. Speaker, I have wanted to ask this question throughout the debate, particularly of a Liberal government member. Earlier the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance quoted at length comments made by the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, and her approval of spending.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the member was very pleased to note in her speech that the budget is providing money again to Atomic Energy of Canada Limited.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I listened to my friend’s speech. I was surprised to see, yet again, more money in the budget down the wasteful sinkhole of helping out Atomic Energy of Canada Limited.
