Statement made on 23 March 2011 by Senator Jane Cordy

Hon. Jane Cordy:

Honourable senators, after seeing this government's 2011 fiscal budget, it is clear to me how Mr. Harper plans to pay for the corporate tax cuts, the American-style prisons and the untendered F-35 fighter jet contracts.

He is paying for their out-of-touch agenda by cutting services to Atlantic Canada, with the closing down of Service Canada community sites across Atlantic Canada, with millions of dollars cut to Marine Atlantic, with millions of dollars cut to ACOA, with millions of dollars cut to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and with no mention anywhere of the Atlantic Gateway. That is what Atlantic Canadians saw in yesterday's budget.

What are this government's priorities when it comes to Atlantic Canada?
