A survey of recent government prioritizing.

Jim Flaherty, December 7. Mr. Speaker, Canada’s economic recovery remains our government’s number one priority.

Leona Aglukkaq, December 7Mr. Speaker, we continue to make health care a priority.

Stephen Harper, December 7Mr. Speaker, the priorities of this government, beyond national defence and criminal justice, are pretty obvious. It is preserving jobs; it is making sure Canadian families do not pay taxes that are too high; and it is making sure that we fully fund transfers for health and education to the provinces…

Stephen Harper, December 7That is why, as this government has looked at its budgetary priorities, maintaining the growth of those transfers for our health care system has been the number one priority of this government.

Peter Kent, December 6I must emphasize that the safety of Canadians and all people travelling on Canadian roadways remains our first priority.

Peter Braid, December 6Mr. Speaker, jobs and the economy remain our government’s number one priority.

John Baird, December 6Mr. Speaker, our priorities consist of creating jobs for Canadians, growing the economy and ensuring the well-being of Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

John Baird, December 6.  If we want to reduce greenhouse gases, all the big polluters must participate. It is our priority.
