Hansard, January 27, 2009:
The Honourable Stephen Harper, Leader of the Opposition: Can the Prime Minister explain to the House the logic of giving $30 billion in economic stimulus to failing auto manufacturers, while at the same time hitting Canadian business with $50 billion in corporate taxation they would have been spared under a Conservative government?
The Right Honourable Stephan Dion, Prime Minister: You mean, if I was Prime Minister since the last election, is that your question? Since when I would have been Prime Minister? Do you think it is easy to make priorities? Can we start again, please, because I have been slow to understand the economy.
