In the face of scandal, Trudeau reveals platform, making billions in farcical promises to Canadians
In an attempt to cover up international embarrassment, Justin Trudeau has revealed his platform, announcing a staggering $57 billion in campaign promises. The tally of his disastrous campaign is mounting, and so is his debt.
“Justin Trudeau will do or say anything to get re-elected. If given four more years, we know that Trudeau is going to raise your taxes to pay for his out of control spending,” said Pierre Poilievre, MP Carleton at a media availability in Ottawa.
To reveal the true cost of Justin Trudeau’s poor judgement, the Conservative Party has once again done the math:
- Justin Trudeau’s campaign promises added to his existing deficits will pile on $100 billion of new debt to the books;
- His deficit will hit $27.4 billion in 2020; and,
- Total debt by the end of Justin Trudeau’s second term would be over $800 billion.
What does that mean for you? Justin Trudeau’s never-ending spending will threaten the quality of our health and social programs. He will be forced to raise taxes to pay for his endless debt and deficits.
To pay just half of Justin Trudeau’s deficits ($14B), he would have to either:
- Raise the GST by 2% or;
- Raise the rate on the first income tax bracket from 15% to 19% or;
- Raise the rate on the second income tax bracket from 20.5% to 27% or;
- Lower the basic personal amount from $12,069 to $6,869.
Further, by reaching $823 billion in total debt, Trudeau is will spend $35 billion on interest payments alone. That’s $35 billion that will not go to Canadians’ priorities.
Justin Trudeau campaigned on a promise to help the middle class. Instead, he raised taxes on 80 per cent of middle-class Canadians and imposed a carbon tax that makes everyday essential more expensive. If Justin Trudeau is re-elected, his carbon tax is going to increase the price of gasoline by 31 cents per litre.
“This election will come down to the choice between a government who thinks they can spend your money better than you, raises taxes, and makes your life more unaffordable – and a new Conservative government that will lower your taxes and put more money in your pocket,” said Poilievre.
JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S BROKEN PROMISES:
“I am looking straight at Canadians and being honest the way I always have. We’ve said we are committed to balanced budgets and we are. We will balance that budget in 2019.” – Justin Trudeau, 2015
It’s 2019, and as we can see the budget did not “balance itself.” Justin Trudeau is running endless deficits that threaten the social services Canadians depend on and if re-elected Trudeau will just raise your taxes to pay for his out of control spending.
“As Prime Minister, I’ll make sure the 2015 election will be the last under first-past-the-post system.” – Justin Trudeau, 2015
There’s another election, and guess what? It’s being held under first-past-the-post.
“Our plan will give back to those who have given so much in service to all Canadians, and will ensure that no veteran has to fight the government for the support and compensation they have earned.” – Liberal Party of Canada, 2015 Election Platform
Justin Trudeau looked a military hero in the eye – a man who lost his leg fighting for our country – and said that veterans are “asking for more than we are able to give.”
“We will restore trust in our democracy.” – Liberal Party of Canada, 2015 Election Platform
Justin Trudeau was the first Prime Minister in our country’s history to be found guilty of breaking ethics laws, and he did it not once but twice!
Justin Trudeau has stonewalled the Ethics Commissioner, shut-down parliamentary committees search for answers into Liberal corruption scandals, and he is now doing everything in his power to block the RCMP from investigating his office.
