This just in: Canada’s competitiveness is in big trouble.
With a looming carbon tax, complicated regulatory processes and struggling international trade deals, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal policies have created a turbulent investment climate in Canada.
Even the Minister of Finance, after snoozing for almost three years, has woken up and admitted it himself. Canada has a competitiveness problem.
Our country should be benefitting from the growth that we see going on in the global economy. And we should be supporting policies that create more good-paying jobs and enhance Canada’s prosperity.
Instead, Canadians are left with a Liberal government that burdens families with high taxes and local businesses with red tape, all while failing to negotiate vital trade agreements.
These actions have consequences: foreign business and the jobs they create in Canada have been driven out and business confidence has plummeted over the last two years.
Conservatives have a plan to put Canada back on track.
We will continue to fight for lower taxes to make life more affordable for you and your family, and we’ll reduce red tape so that we can make our economy more competitive and defend high-quality local jobs.
We will always put people before government and will not sit idly by while tens of billions of dollars and tens of thousands of family-supporting jobs are driven out of Canada by this Liberal government in Ottawa.
