Conservatives call on Trudeau candidate to pay his fair share in taxes

Ottawa, ON – Today, Conservative Candidate Pierre Paul-Hus commented on resurfaced documents that show Justin Trudeau’s Liberal candidate owes arrears to the Government of Quebec: “Justin Trudeau frequently criticizes Canadians, saying taxpayers need to pay their fair share of taxes. However, for the last two years, one of Justin Trudeau’s candidates has owed taxes to Revenu Québec, and has not been paying his fair share. “Even Trudeau’s candidate, Steven Guilbeault, has said himself that others should pay their ‘fair share.’ This is typical of the Trudeau Liberals – one set of rules for them, another set of rules for everyone else. “Trudeau’s candidate needs to come clean, and tell Canadians how much he owes in taxes, and pay his fair share, like all other Canadian families.”

Cost of living not a priority for Trudeau

Ottawa, ON – Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, released the following statement on Justin Trudeau admitting addressing the rising cost of living isn’t a priority for him: “Today, Justin Trudeau was asked what his government was going to do about the rising costs that Canadians are facing across the country. Instead of answering the question, Trudeau said it’s not something he is thinking about. “The simple fact is that Justin Trudeau has made life less affordable for Canadians. Unlike Justin Trudeau who doesn’t have to worry about paying for his gas, groceries, and mortgage – regular Canadians are struggling to make ends meet. “It’s time to make life more affordable for Canadians. That’s why I’ve put forward Canada’s Recovery Plan that will fight back against the growing cost of living crisis that Trudeau has created and secure the future for Canadians from coast to coast to coast. “If you aren’t worried about your personal finances, you have three parties to choose from. If you are, there is only one choice – Canada’s Conservatives.”

What’s the real cost of the Trudeau-NDP Coalition? We took a look at the history books

Justin Trudeau is scheming up a plot to cling to power by forming a coalition with the NDP. This is the coalition that you cannot afford.

We know that the Trudeau-NDP coalition will mean:

  • Higher taxes;
  • Bigger deficits;
  • And, fewer good-paying jobs.

The last time there was a Liberal-NDP coalition was from October 1972 to July 8, 1974 under Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau.

In less than two years, the Liberal-NDP coalition:

  • Jacked up personal income taxes by 40 per cent.
  • Increased taxes on job creators by 66 per cent.
  • Raised other taxers by 61 per cent.
  • Increased Canada’s total debt by 19 per cent.

Now is not the time for a Trudeau-NDP coalition that you can’t afford. Only a Conservative majority government will put more money in your pockets so you can get ahead.


The Trudeau-NDP Coalition: Fewer jobs, higher taxes

Both Liberals and NDP say they will halt all new pipeline development

Both Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh’s campaigns mused yesterday about cancelling ongoing and future pipeline projects. Singh doubled-down yesterday reminding Canadians that he’s “fully opposed to Trans Mountain”.

Meanwhile, Trudeau’s star candidate in Quebec confirmed that under Trudeau’s plan “many of these [pipelines] are incompatible with the goals we have for 2030”.

The Trudeau-NDP coalition is the coalition you can’t afford. Their radical position on pipeline development will mean fewer jobs for Canadians and less future revenue that can be put toward health care, education and social services across Canada.

As a result, a Trudeau-NDP coalition would be forced to raise taxes on middle-class Canadians in order to fund any new health care spending.

Only Andrew Scheer and the Conservative Party has a plan to build a national energy corridor that will encourage greater investment in the Canadian energy sector. Greater economic development means Andrew Scheer will be able to lower taxes to put more money in your pocket to help you get ahead.


Trudeau Liberal Cabinet Minister pushes out whistleblower

Liberals continue to attack whistleblowers and bully critics who stands up to their corrupt behaviour

Ottawa, Ontario – The media are reporting that a whistleblower was let go by a Trudeau cabinet minister after the whistleblower tried to flag concerns about a conflict of interest. According to the media, the Liberal Government appointed Moreen Miller as the new Chair of the of Defence Construction Canada (DCC). The only problem is that Ms. Miller continued her role as President of Fowler, a firm that bids on DCC contracts.

Only now, after once again being exposed, the Government was forced to order an ‘urgent’ investigation into the file. This, on the eve of an election.

This is a pattern. First Vice-Admiral Mark Norman was thrown under the bus for raising concerns about the Trudeau government’s unethical behaviour. Then Jody-Wilson Raybould was fired for raising concerns about the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal.  Now a third whistleblower has been let go for flagging a conflict of interest.

It’s obvious that there are one set of rules for Trudeau and his friends, and another set of rules for the rest of us.

Justin Trudeau cannot be trusted and if he is re-elected he will continue to break laws and grant insider access to Liberals and corporate lobbyists.

Under Prime Minister Andrew Scheer the corruption in Ottawa will end. It starts with a judicial inquiry into the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal and introducing the No More Cover Ups Act to allow the RCMP to access information protected by cabinet confidence.


What’s the real cost of the Trudeau-NDP Coalition to your wallet? We did the math

Justin Trudeau is scheming up a plot to cling to power by forming a coalition with the NDP. This is the coalition that you cannot afford.

We know that the Trudeau-NDP Coalition will mean:

  • Higher taxes;
  • Higher deficits;
  • And, fewer good-paying jobs.

But, what exactly does it mean for you? We did the math.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has listed his five demands to be a part of the coalition:

  1. Wealth Tax
  2. Pharmacare
  3. Universal Dental Care
  4. Affordable Housing
  5. Removing Interest from Federal Student Loans

When you combine these promises with the Liberal platform, it will mean even bigger deficits and higher taxes.

The Liberal/NDP Coalition Deficits will average $34.7 billion over the next four years.

To pay just half of their deficits, the coalition would have to:

  • Raise the lowest personal income tax bracket from 15% to 19.5%
  • Raise the GST from 5% to 7.5%
  • Cut the Canada Health Transfer by 41%
  • Cut the Canada Social Transfer by 100%

Trudeau’s not-so-hidden agenda: Legalizing hard drugs

Trudeau refused to rule out legalizing more drugs in TVA debate

Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have left the door wide open to legalizing hard drugs in Canada if re-elected. Trudeau refused to rule out the possibility during the TVA debate saying he wouldn’t legalize hard drugs “right now”.

Here is what Trudeau said: https://youtu.be/KZEgvB0iALc

Parents who doubt Trudeau’s motivation need look no further than the radical positions on drug legalization of those running to be Liberal Members of Parliament across the country.

 

Studies have show that drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and crystal meth are extremely dangerous substances that tear families apart, make our communities unsafe, and have lasting effects on individuals who choose to use them. 

In 2018, Liberals voted overwhelmingly to remove criminal penalties for the possession of hard drugs: https://youtu.be/mad4EED9jyk

Trudeau’s plan to legalize all drugs is extremely irresponsible, and Canadians deserve to know exactly how this will affect their families and their communities.

Trudeau cannot be trusted to make responsible decisions for Canadian families. He is not as advertised.


Justin Trudeau lied again last night about the SNC-Lavalin Corruption Scandal

Trudeau continues to assert that media stories are false despite ruling that he broke the law

Last night Justin Trudeau unrepentantly lied again to Canadians about the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal. In a debate exchange with Mr. Scheer, Justin Trudeau shockingly asserted that a Globe and Mail story, which first detailed how Justin Trudeau attempted to interfere in an ongoing corruptions and fraud court case, was false.

How do Canadians know Justin Trudeau lied last night? Check the record:

  • Trudeau was investigated by the Ethics Commissioner who determined he broke the law over the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal; 
  • Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould confirmed to a House of Commons committee that Trudeau pressured her to interfere in the SNC-Lavalin court case;
  • Trudeau’s two most senior staff resigned in disgrace and former cabinet minister Jane Philpot resigned in protest over Trudeau’s unethical behavior; and
  • The RCMP were blocked from investigating Justin Trudeau’s office.

Despite all this, Justin Trudeau still says the Globe and Mail story is false.

Why? Because Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. He is a fraud and he does not deserve to govern this country.

To ensure this never happens again, a Conservative government will launch a judicial inquiry into the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal and introduce the No More Cover Ups Act to allow the RCMP to access information protected by cabinet confidence.


Justin Trudeau must fire Liberal candidate with history of sexism and misogyny

Trudeau continues to support candidate despite disparaging comments toward women

Yesterday Postmedia exposed numerous sexist comments by Justin Trudeau’s handpicked candidate in Sydney-Victoria, Jamie Battiste, which were made between 2012-2016.

While some of Battiste’s comments are too inappropriate to repeat, he joked about sexually assaulting women and believes their role is to clean, cook and fold laundry.

These comments are disgusting and inexcusable. An individual who makes this many disparaging comments is not worthy of sitting in the House of Commons. 

“Despite these sexist comments, Battiste is allowed to run as a Liberal candidate for Justin Trudeau,” said Lisa Raitt, Conservative candidate for Milton. “Justin Trudeau is a fake feminist. Whether it was groping a journalist in British Columbia, or throwing strong women out of his caucus for standing up for the rule-of-law, Trudeau never lives up to his own self-proclaimed feminism.”    

Justin Trudeau says he’s a feminist, but as we have seen time and time again his own decisions and actions speak louder than his words.

“Trudeau cannot be trusted to stand up for Canadian women. He is not as advertised,” concluded Raitt.


Justin Trudeau: The high carbon-hypocrite

Trudeau is campaigning with two planes, emitting more than double the amount of other campaigns

Despite marching in climate strikes, lecturing everybody else on lowering emissions, and imposing a carbon tax on hard-working Canadians, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals are secretly using two aircraft to campaign in this election.

Conservatives have confirmed that Trudeau’s official Boeing 737-800 campaign planes (his official branded plane and two replacements) have been travelling with a second aircraft – a 40-year-old Boeing 737-200 with tail number C-GNLE.

His official branded plane – tail number C-GTQB – and the second plane were spotted on the tarmac together at Pearson Airport in Toronto yesterday:

Flight records show his three official planes have been accompanied by the second plane throughout the campaign:

Not only is Trudeau running with two aircraft, his second plane is by far the highest-emitting aircraft in the campaign. The Boeing 737-200 burns through a staggering 975 gallons of jet fuel an hour. His official branded plane burns between 800 and 850 gallons an hour.

By comparison, Jagmeet Singh’s NDP plane burns 795 gallons an hour and Andrew Scheer’s Conservative plane burns 640 gallons an hour.

That means Trudeau’s campaign is emitting nearly three times as much as the Conservative campaign.

“Canadians are tired of being lectured to and taxed by a high-carbon hypocrite like Justin Trudeau,” Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said. “As usual, there’s one set of rules for him, and one set of rules for the rest of us. He is simply not as advertised.”
