I am proud to table Budget 2013-2014, which restores fiscal balance in Québec.
This budget enables us to put our public finances in order, while remaining close to families, our seniors and middle-class Quebecers. We want to meet people’s concrete needs.
On taking power, we found the public finances to be in a less than encouraging state.
Rapid action was necessary to right the government’s financial situation.
Today, our first budget shows that we have succeeded.
We are meeting our commitments. We are acting on behalf of all Quebecers.
We are taking means to foster economic growth and enable wealth creation for everyone.
What is more, we are managing the public finances responsibly and honestly. As a result, our ability to take collective action is preserved.
We are doing this so that future generations also live in a prosperous Québec.
This budget is fair and good for all Quebecers. I invite you to take a look.
