The federal government isn’t doing enough for Canadians hurting from rising inflation, particularly rural residents.
That from Hastings-Lennox & Addington MP Shelby Kramp-Neuman, following the federal government’s financial update, released earlier this month. The report says Canada’s deficit has gone from $52.8 billion earlier this year to a projected $36.4 billion for the next fiscal year.
But Kramp expressed concern that taxes are still high and there’s no relief in sight.
“We’ve been continuously saying in the House, no new taxes. That means cancelling all the planned tax hikes and the carbon tax.. We need to stop new spending. From our perspective any new spending by Ministers needs to be matched with equivalent savings.”
Kramp adds that with Pierre Poilievre now in as the Opposition leader, the Conservatives are united and getting ready for an election. They plan on proposing new policies to Canadians that will show the party is ready to govern.
