Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would like to return to the point that the hon. member for York Centre raised in his speech, which was that the government in no way has raised any taxes at all. Well, by most definitions, tariffs are taxes, and so are payroll taxes. There has been a very steep ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, it may be my last occasion to put a question to the hon. member for Toronto Centre while he is interim leader of the Liberal Party, and I commend him for once again a very entertaining, engaging and insightful address on the budget, which I believe is now referred to as economic ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am troubled by the budget for a number of reasons.
