As we approach a federal election this fall, many Canadians have been asking what Canada’s Conservatives will do if elected?
The first act of a Conservative Government will be to repeal Justin Trudeau’s Carbon Tax.
A Conservative Government will make balancing the budget a top priority. Under the Liberals our national debt has soared. We will get Canada’s finances under control, so we can lower your taxes.
We recognize that Canadians are facing an affordability crisis. 90% of Canadian families are paying more taxes under the Liberals. According to a recent IPSOS poll, nearly 50% of Canadian families are within $200 of not being able to pay their bills and service their debt each month. Canada’s Conservatives want to put more of your money back in your pockets, where it belongs. That’s why we plan to eliminate the GST on home heating, lower taxes on families and businesses and cut red tape to help Canadians get ahead.
Canada’s Conservatives understand that the family unit is the backbone of our society. That’s why we will be introducing family friendly policies, like our plan to remove federal income tax from EI maternity and EI parental benefits by providing a non-refundable tax credit for any income earned under these two programs.
A Conservative Government will secure our borders. We will close the loophole in the Safe Third Country Agreement and have an asylum system that prioritizes the world’s most vulnerable.
A Conservative government will champion our energy sector and support responsible resource development across the country. We will seek to build a new west to east pipeline and we will build the Trans-Mountain Pipeline expansion.
On trade, we will prioritize the removal of damaging U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum. We will also prioritize a bilateral Canada-U.K. trade deal. We will seek to undo the damage done by Justin Trudeau and work to rebuild positive relationships with countries like India.
On National Defense, we will work to strengthen our international defense partnerships. We will prioritize the modernization and expansion of NORAD to include Canada in ballistic missile defense. We will work to ensure our troops have the equipment and resources they need.
Andrew Scheer has previously laid out our three-pillar plan to crack down on crime: 1) Crack down on gangs. 2) Ensure our gun laws target criminals. 3) Provide new tools for police to solve gun crimes.
In the coming days, Canada’s Conservatives will continue to put forward detailed, common-sense plans on important national issues. We will show ourselves to be the only viable alternative to Justin Trudeau’s Liberals this October.
