The honourable member knows very well, since he put this question to me—or a question along the same lines—earlier in the week, that over the last year we've seen company profits and wages rise by approximately the same amount. Over the last six years, wages have risen considerably more than company profits. The figure he is using has been cherrypicked to take advantage of a spike in earnings because of the commodity boom.
