March 22 2017 - Ottawa, ON – Karen Vecchio, Member of Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London
and Official Opposition Critic for Families, Children and Social Development, has
serious concerns for Canadian Families with the Tabling of Budget 2017 in the House
Canadians were hoping for a better outcome from the Liberal budget announced today.
At a time when Liberals are making life more expensive, the Prime Minister could
have offered lower taxes and a job creation plan that actually works. Instead, Canadians
are getting nickel-and-dimed by this Prime Minister so he can continue to fund flawed
"This Liberal Government has lost control over public spending. They committed to
run a minor deficit but with this budget, the deficit will be $28.5 billion this
year," said Vecchio. "It is our children and grandchildren will be paying for this
budget long into their adulthood."
Sadly, many programs announced in Budget 2017 won't help the vast majority of Canadian
workers and businesses who now face much more intense competition from a low-cost,
low-tax United States. Canadians deserve solutions to the challenges they face right
now, not expensive programs for years down the road.
Conservative will continue to be the voice of the taxpayer and we will not stay
silent while Justin Trudeau nickel-and-dimes Canadians.
