Justin Trudeau cannot be trusted to solve gang and gun violence

Trudeau has rolled back strict penalties for gang members and will remove minimum sentences for gun crimes Justin Trudeau wants Canadians to think he’s serious about cracking down on crime. The only thing he’s serious about is making law-abiding firearms owners follow more laws. Trudeau has failed to address the gang problem that has been steadily growing over the last four years. He also refuses to introduce stricter penalties for criminals who smuggle guns across the border and into Canadian cities.  Shockingly Justin Trudeau changed the law so dangerous gang members receive lighter sentences: https://www.surreynowleader.com/news/gangs-in-surrey-the-search-for-solutions/ Trudeau also plans to reduce sentences for gang members who commit a violent crime with a handgun: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/mandatory-minimum-sentences-liberal-trudeau-harper-government-1.4103855 Justin Trudeau is simply not as advertised and he can’t be trusted to be tough on crime and crackdown on gang members who commit violent crimes with guns. How else do you explain spending three times as much on canoes as on fighting crime? https://globalnews.ca/video/5967294/federal-election-2019-anyone-want-to-go-camping-conservative-candidate-criticizing-liberals-proposed-funding-of-camping-program Andrew Scheer has a better plan – one that goes after the criminals who use guns to commit crimes, instead of law-abiding gun owners.

The last time Justin Trudeau needed money, he raised taxes on Canadians living with disabilities

Trudeau can’t be trusted to make life more affordable for you and your family   Ottawa, Ontario – Yesterday, as part of the Liberal platform, Justin Trudeau announced an expansion of the Child Disability Tax Credit. But the last time Justin Trudeau needed money for his out-of-control deficit spending he targeted Canadians living with disabilities to pay the bill. In 2016 Justin Trudeau ordered the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to crack down on “tax cheats”. As a result, the CRA started clawing back disability benefits – cutting off diabetics, children with Autism, and a number of other Canadians living with chronic conditions. The result was endless hardship for Canadians living with disabilities. CRA policy change prompted diabetes tax credit denials, health groups allege https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/cra-policy-change-prompted-diabetes-tax-credit-denials-health-groups-allege-1.3706393 The CRA makes it so hard to get the disability tax credit, many don’t even try https://globalnews.ca/news/3956042/cra-disability-tax-credit-canada/beta/?utm_expid=.kz0UD5JkQOCo6yMqxGqECg.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.ca%2F CRA backs down in row with diabetics denied disability tax credit https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/cra-backs-down-in-row-with-diabetics-denied-disability-tax-credit-1.3713390 The CRA Is Denying The Disability Tax Credit To Some With Disabilities https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/jennifer-zwicker/the-cra-is-denying-the-disability-tax-credit-to-some-with-disabilities_a_23338492/ When Justin Trudeau doesn’t need your vote but he still needs your money, Trudeau will again raise taxes on Canadians living with disabilities. Trudeau simply cannot be trusted to make life more affordable for these families, he is simply not as advertised.   Only Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives can be trusted to put more money back in your pocket to help you and your family get ahead.

Andrew Scheer to expand eligibility criteria to access Disability Tax Credit

Fairness for Persons with Disabilities Act could help 35,000 more Canadians with disabilities A new Conservative government will introduce the Fairness for Persons with Disabilities Act, allowing 35,000 more Canadians to qualify and apply for the Disability Tax Credit, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced today. This new Act will reduce the number of hours spent per week on life-sustaining therapy needed to qualify for the credit from 14 to 10. It will also expand the definition of what counts as life-sustaining therapy to include determining dosages of medical food and activities related to determining dosages of medication, including dietary or exercise regimes. This would allow 35,000 more Canadians with disabilities the potential to access savings of an average of $2,100 a year. “A new Conservative government will support Canadians with disabilities in ways that leave more money in their pockets to help them manage their health needs,” Scheer said. “We will make sure that Canadians with a disability can care for themselves and parents of children with disabilities can support their children without worrying about their bottom line.” Under our policy, a Canadian with type 1 diabetes who currently spends an average of 10 hours per week managing his or her condition would qualify for the Disability Tax Credit. In 2017, Justin Trudeau changed how Canadians qualify for the Disability Tax Credit and the Registered Disability Savings Plan, stripping important financial support from thousands of Canadians with disabilities. “Trudeau has made life more expensive for all Canadians, including those with disabilities,” Scheer said. “A new Conservative government will live within its means. We will lower your taxes and put more money in your pocket so you can worry less about your bottom line and focus on living life to your full potential.” Conservative MP Tom Kmiec introduced the Fairness for Persons with Disabilities Act in 2018 but the bill did not pass before parliament was dissolved. ANDREW SCHEER’S PLAN FOR YOU TO GET AHEAD: Scrap the Trudeau Carbon Tax, lowering the cost of everyday essentials like gas, groceries, and home heating. Introduce the Universal Tax Cut, saving an average couple $850. Take the GST off home heating costs, saving your family $107 every year. Introduce the Green Public Transit Tax Credit, saving a family of four who take transit up to $1,000. Make maternity benefits tax-free, putting up to $4,000 back in the pockets of new parents. Introduce the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, allowing parents to claim up to $1,000 for sports activities. Introduce the Children’s Arts and Learning Tax Credit, letting parents claim up to $500 for arts and learning programs. Expand the Age Credit, benefiting the lowest income Canadians the most and giving a senior couple up to $300. Boost government-matching to RESPs by 50 per cent, helping parents get more for their kids’ education. Introduce the Green Home Renovation Tax Credit, putting up to $3,800 back in the pockets of families who make green-home improvements.  SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS Background Independent Parliamentary Budget Officer Costing

Justin Trudeau’s desperate campaign spending announcements to cost $57 billion

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: Balanced Budgets: “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. Electoral Reform: “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. Veterans: “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.” Accountability: “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.

Andrew Scheer to give hunters and anglers a seat at the table

A new Conservative government will bring back the Hunting and Angling Advisory Michelle Rempel, Conservative candidate for Calgary Nose Hill, spoke today in Calgary about the Conservatives’ plan to give hunters and anglers a voice in protecting Canada’s natural habitats by re-establishing the Hunting and Angling Advisory Panel. “The Trudeau Liberals cut the Hunting and Angling Advisory Panel and chose to lose touch with what is happening in our local communities,” said Rempel. “Canada’s hunters and anglers make significant contributions to the preservation of species and habitats and can offer valuable advice on the stewardship of Canada’s wildlife.” “Justin Trudeau and his Liberal team have ignored much of the important work that is being done in local communities to protect, conserve, and manage our environment due to their “Ottawa knows best” approach,” said Rempel. In A Real Plan to Protect our Environment, restoring the Hunting and Angling Advisory Panel is just one of many initiatives focused on increasing community involvement and positioning the government alongside Canadians to work together to promote a cleaner and greener natural environment. There are so many Canadians who work diligently to fight climate change and protect our environment. Canada’s Conservatives want to make sure that your voice is heard, that you have a seat at the table, and that the government is working with you. Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives: “Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. This election, Canadians have a choice. Between the poor judgement of Justin Trudeau, and a new, positive Conservative government that will take immediate action for you to get ahead.” 

Justin Trudeau broke his promises to you last time, and he will do it again if re-elected

Today, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are unveiling their election platform – much like the 2015 version it’s not worth the wasted ink and the paper it’s printed on. In the last election, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals promised a lot, but once elected they broke promise after promise and made life more expensive and unaffordable for families. Plain and simple, Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. If Justin Trudeau is re-elected he will once again break his promises to Canadians and raise taxes on hard-working Canadian families. Let’s take a look at some of Justin Trudeau’s most notable broken promises. Balanced Budgets: “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.

Lower Taxes for the Middle Class: “We will give middle class Canadians a tax break.” – Liberal Party of Canada, 2015 Election Platform Justin Trudeau has raised taxes on 80 per cent of middle-class families, and his carbon tax punishes everyday moms and dads driving their kids to hockey practice. If Justin Trudeau is re-elected, his carbon tax is going to increase the price of gasoline by 31 cents per litre. Justin Trudeau is not as advertised.

Andrew Scheer pitches National Energy Corridor to create jobs and unite Canadians

New transnational project to generate economic and social benefits across the country A new Conservative government will create a national corridor to carry Canadian energy and resources from coast to coast, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced today. “It’s time for a government that understands we’re in this together, that Canada works better when we work together,” Scheer said. “A new National Energy Corridor will create jobs and opportunities while uniting Canadians in our shared potential and prosperity.” A National Energy Corridor will generate economic and social benefits for the entire country by moving oil, gas, hydroelectricity, telecommunications, and potentially accommodating other linear infrastructure. With a single corridor, industry wouldn’t need to submit complicated proposals for every new project. A single coast-to-coast corridor would: minimize environmental impacts lower the costs of environmental assessments without sacrificing quality increase certainty for investors get critical projects built and create good-paying jobs. A new Conservative government will appoint a blue-ribbon task force to provide recommendations within six months of its establishment on how to proceed. The government would then begin to work with the provinces and Indigenous peoples – who would both share in the prosperity this project would provide – to realize this vital coast-to-coast link. “As Canadians, we need to start dreaming big again, and we need to start dreaming together,” said Scheer. “We need to start building a stronger, more united country worthy of those who came before us and that our children and grandchildren deserve.” Today’s announcement is part of Andrew Scheer’s plan to create jobs for Canadians across the country and help you get ahead.  Scrap the Trudeau Carbon Tax, lowering the cost of everyday essentials like gas, groceries and home heating. Introduce the Universal Tax Cut, saving a couple earning average salaries $850. Take the GST off home heating costs, saving your family $107 every year.

Justin Trudeau must fire antisemitic apologist, Iqra Khalid

Trudeau’s candidate continues to support individual with known antisemitic views According to B’nai Brith Canada, Justin Trudeau’s candidate Iqra Khalid continues to associate with known anitsemite Amin El-Maoued, who advocates for violence and discrimination against the Jewish community. Khalid was forced to apologize last year for giving El-Maoued a certificate of appreciation from Justin Trudeau. At the time Khalid claimed she condemned his antisemitic views. But we now know her apology was a lie. Recently Khalid attended an event at the home of El-Maoued. He confirmed in social media posts that Khalid apologized to him for condemning his antisemitism. El-Maoued blames the “Zionist lobby” for forcing Khalid to having to issue a public apology. In response to this news, Khalid says that she accepts that El-Maoued is not antisemtic, despite the fact that he uses antisemitic language and leads rallies to call for the destruction of Israel. El-Maoued is active in the Liberal Party of Canada, donating and attending party conventions with Justin Trudeau. Antisemites like Khalid and El-Maoued feel they have a home in Trudeau’s Liberal Party. But what Jewish Canadians are asking is: why did Justin Trudeau fire antisemite Hassan Guillet but continues to support Iqra Khalid?

Scheer to prioritize George Massey Tunnel replacement, other projects that shorten commute times

A new Conservative government will prioritize critical infrastructure projects that shorten commute times like the George Massey Tunnel replacement in the Greater Vancouver Area, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer announced today. “Canadians are sick and tired of being stuck in traffic and waiting for delayed public transit,” said Scheer. “Canada’s Conservatives will get on with real projects that reduce congestion and deliver faster commute times for everyone, whether you drive or catch public transit.” Examples of the type of projects that would be prioritized for funding include: The George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project (British Columbia) The Ontario Line and the Yonge Subway Extension (Ontario) The third link between Quebec City and Levis (Québec) Scheer pointed out how, despite making a $187-billion infrastructure spending commitment in the 2015 election, Justin Trudeau has failed to deliver important projects for Canadian commuters. “He’s made billions in promises but hasn’t delivered. When it comes to getting shovels in the ground and getting projects built, Justin Trudeau is not as advertised,” Scheer said. A new Conservative government will also restore transparency to infrastructure spending by scrapping Justin Trudeau’s $35-billion Infrastructure Bank which has been nothing but a waste of taxpayer dollars, adding countless layers of red tape, delaying desperately needed transportation infrastructure, and doing nothing to decrease commute times. Scheer added, “As Prime Minister, I will ensure that all infrastructure projects that have already been committed to will move forward. Going forward, a new Conservative government will have a strategy in place to prioritize future transportation projects on whether they lower commute times and also provide more housing options for Canadians.” FACTS: Statistics Canada found that 1.5 million Canadians spent at least an hour commuting to work in 2016. According to the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO), for every dollar Justin Trudeau promised for infrastructure, he only spent 60 cents: “the Government failed to spend about 40 per cent of its planned infrastructure budget.” Analysis showed that for all his spending, there are no substantial results to show for it. In its analysis of Budget 2018, the PBO reported: “Budget 2018 provides an incomplete account of the changes to the Government’s $186.7 billion infrastructure spending plan. PBO requested the new plan but it does not exist.” If given four more years, Justin Trudeau’s debt and never-ending deficits will delay badly needed infrastructure, threatening the future of important projects like the George Massey Tunnel replacement. ANDREW SCHEER’S PLAN FOR YOU TO GET AHEAD: Scrap the Trudeau Carbon Tax, lowering the cost of everyday essentials like gas, groceries, and home heating.
