House of Commons – Feb. 1, 2016

Madam Speaker, I want to congratulate the hon. member on his address.
The previous government’s plan to nearly double the contribution limit to the tax-free savings accounts would have helped Canada’s wealthiest save more, while costing the federal treasury several hundreds of millions of dollars over the next five years—tens of billions of dollars over the longer term—and only 6.7% of eligible Canadians were able to make the maximum contribution in 2013.
Can the member share with us the fairness of the Liberal plan for the tax free savings account?
