  • Canadians are expressing frustration over the rising cost of food and the inability to afford a traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Criticism is directed towards the current Prime Minister, who has been in power for eight years. One example of the price increases is the cost of turkey at Loblaw's, which has gone up by 67%. Despite promises to lower prices by Thanksgiving, the government has only provided a code of conduct, an office, and a photo opportunity, none of which can be eaten or included in the holiday feast. The opposition challenges the government to take action and reverse the price increase within the next four days. The Honourable Minister defends the government's efforts and criticizes the Conservative leader for his previous advice on purchasing cryptocurrency and now suggesting buying an expensive turkey. The Speaker intervenes, reminding the Minister and the opposition that they should focus on doing something beneficial for Canadians, such as supporting FISA's C-56, a bill that aims to stabilize prices and increase competition in Canada. The Leader of the Opposition highlights the frustration felt by Canadians, as the price of a pound of turkey has risen from $1.49 to $2.49, a 70% increase during the previous conservative government's final days. Canadians are hoping for affordable food rather than extravagant items for their Thanksgiving celebrations.
  • Subtitles section
  • After eight years, this Prime Minister is not worth the cost of food.
  • For example, the price of turkey is up, at Loblaw's, by 67%.
  • After eight years of this Prime Minister's carbon taxes, and all they offered since they promised to bring prices down by Thanksgiving is a code of conduct, an office, and a photo op.
  • You can't eat any of those three things.
  • They won't be on the Thanksgiving dinner table.
  • So what will they do in the next four days to reverse the 67% increase in the cost of a turkey at Loblaw's, just like they promised they would, Mr. Speaker?
  • The Honourable Minister.
  • Mr. Speaker, we will take no lessons from this Conservative, Mr. Speaker.
  • The last time that the Conservative leader advised Canadians was to buy crypto, Mr. Speaker, and now he's suggesting to Canadians to buy a turkey at $120.
  • I found a butterball for him, Mr. Speaker, $30.
  • Mr.
  • Speaker, like I said, I was shopping for the Leader of the Opposition to help him.
  • But, Mr. Speaker, if they want to do something for Canadians, not just asking questions, but do something, vote for FISA's C-56, Mr. Speaker.
  • It's going to help Canadians.
  • It's going to stabilize prices in Canada.
  • It's going to bring competition to this country.
  • That's what we need.
  • It's for them to hack, Mr. Speaker.
  • The Honourable Leader of the Opposition.
  • Mr. Speaker, prices have risen so fast that Canadians didn't want champagne for Thanksgiving.
  • They just want some food, and I did a little bit of price shopping on that for him.
  • In the last days of the Conservative government, the price for a pound of turkey was $1.49, and the flyers today show it's $2.49, a 70% increase.
  • I might add that the picture of the turkey during the Conservative years was a big, plump, beautiful bird, whereas right now it's a skimpy, shrimpy little thing that looks like it's been taxed to death.
  • Mr. Speaker, why don't they get off the back of the turkey so that we can have a nice dinner for Thanksgiving?
