    Jason KenneyI recently went mainstreeting in Richmond, BC with strong Conservative candidates Kenny Chiu (Steveston--Richmond East) and Alice Wong (Richmond Centre). Alice and I also met with entrepreneurs from the GVR Chinese community. Very strong support for our low tax agenda. I then dropped by the Omni News BC studio for interviews with Chinese and Punjabi programmes and attended a media roundtable in Richmond, BC to discuss the success of our Conservative pro-growth immigration reforms.

    Leona AglukkaqStatement from the Hon. Leona Aglukkaq, Conservative Party of Canada Candidate for Nunavut – Responsible Resource Development August 28,2015, Baker Lake, NU During my lifetime Nunavut has undergone monumental change. It is these changes that inspired me many years ago to not only join the public service but to run for office. In a short period of time I have seen Nunavut come a long way and as we continue to move forward I will continue to be driven by the underlying principle that Inuit and Northerners must play a role in the decision making and directly benefit from the activities unfolding in our Territory. Canada’s North is rich in natural resources, development of these resources offers huge potential benefits for Northerners. This weekend, I am in Baker Lake where I will once again witness first-hand the benefits of the Agnico Eagle projects. However, Nunavut’s resource sector must only be developed in consultation with Inuit and in a responsible and environmentally sustainable manner. We must ensure that the land, water and wildlife that Nunavummiut depend on are protected for future generations. Ensuring development in Nunavut includes the input of Inuit and that we directly benefit from it, is something our Conservative Government has been doing since elected. That is why I have worked to ensure the Institutes of Public Governance, like the Nunavut Impact Review Board (NIRB), are adequately funded. As a Senior Member in Canada’s Cabinet and as the first Inuk to be Chair of the Arctic Council, I have worked with my colleagues to take action to ensure responsible resource development occurs. This includes advocating for Indigenous voices from Arctic Council states to be included in decisions and discussions on development, in addition we have taken steps to reduce environmental pollutants and have been investing in clean energy to protect our land and water. In addition, our Conservative Government introduced and passed the Nunavut Planning and Project Assessment Act (NUPPA) after years of collaboration with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorprated and the Government of Nunavut. This act fulfills land claim obligations, supports social and economic development, protects our environmental heritage, clearly defines the roles and authorities of Inuit and, supports the improvement and devolution of northern governance. There is a lot of discussion on the proposed Kiggavik uranium project and I want to assure Nunavummiut that I will continue to advocate that the NIRB's recommendations always be respected, including in this case. I would also encourage the project proponent to work directly with the NIRB and Nunavummiut to ensure that all questions and concerns raised by local communities are properly addressed. As the North continues to grow, we will be faced with challenges and opportunities and I believe to successfully build an economic future in Nunavut, Inuit can and must lead the charge on our terms. We have seen the benefits to our communities when responsible resource development occurs and if re-elected on October 19th, I will continue to work diligently for Nunavummiut to ensure we continue to have both a strong voice and benefit from sustainable economic development. ?????????????? ?????????? ??? ??????, ?????????? ?????? ???????? ???? ???????????? ?????? ? ?????????? ??????? ???????????? ??? 28, 2015, ???’???, ???? ???????, ???? ????? ???????? ??????????. ????? ??? ????????? ????? ????????????? ????? ???????????? ??????????????????? ?????????? ???????????? ??????? ?????????????. ????????????, ??????? ???? ???????????? ????????????, ????????????????? ????????????, ?????????? ????????? ?????, ???? ?????????????? ????????????????? ?????????????????, ?????? ?????????????????? ???????? ???????????? ???????? ???. ????? ???????????? ????? ?????? ?????????, ?????????????????? ??????????? ????? ?????????????????? ???????????????. ????? ???????? ????, ???’??????? ???????? ?????? ????? ?????????????? ??????????? ?????? ???????????? ????????. ?????????, ????? ???????????? ?????????????????? ???? ??????????????? ???? ???? ?????????????? ???? ????? ????????????????? ??????????. ??????????????? ????? ??????, ?????? ???? ???????? ????? ??????? ?????????? ?????????????????????? ??????????? ????????. ?????????????? ??????????????? ????? ????????? ????? ???? ???? ????? ????????????????, ?????? ???????? ????????? ????????????? ????? ???????????. ??????????? ??????????????? ???????? ????????? ??????????? ???????? ?????, ??? ????? ????????? ????????, ????? ????????????????????. ????????? ???????????? ????? ?????? ???????? ???? ???????????? ???? ????????????? ???????????????? ??????????, ?????????????? ??????? ???????????? ???????????????? ????????????????? ??????? ?????????????????????????. ???? ???????? ???????? ??????????? ??????????????? ?????, ??????????? ????????? ?????????????????, ????????????? ???? ?????????????????? ????????????????, ???? ??????????? ???????????? ????? ??????????????????, ???? ????????????????? ???????? ????????????? ????????????? ??????????????????? ???????? ???????. ??????? ??, ???????? ??????? ??????????? ??????????? ????? ???????? ???? ???????????? ?????????????????? ??????

    Jason KenneyHad a great time in Vancouver last week! I opened the huge International Teochew Convention in Vancouver with Conservative Candidate Alice Wong (Richmond Centre) who is one of over 200,000 Canadians of Teochew Chinese origin. I also opened the exhibition at Vancouver Chinese Cultural Centre commemorating 70th anniversary of WWII victory over fascism. I joined Conservative Candidate Wai Young (Vancouver South) at a tandoori BBQ in Vancouver South with friends from the Vancouver Punjabi community. Then I took questions for an hour on Fairchild (Cantonese) Radio am1470. Thanks to callers for great questions and support! In addition, I also met with Conservative Party of Canada - Parti conservateur du Canada supporters from Vancouver's Russian community to discuss our leadership on economy and foreign policy.

    Joe OliverStatement by the Prime Minister Toronto - Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued the following statement in response to the Department of Finance’s monthly report on the state of the government’s finances showing a $5 billion surplus for the period of April to June 2015: “The report shows that under our strong economic leadership, Canada had a $5 billion budget surplus for the first three months of the year. This means that we’re actually ahead of the game on our budget plan, while at the same time delivering historic tax relief directly to Canadian families. That’s good for Canada and good for the economy. “While the global economy remains volatile, our Conservative Government will continue to deliver a low-tax, balanced budget plan to keep our economy moving forward. “Justin Trudeau’s Liberals and Thomas Mulcair’s NDP have proposed massive increases in government spending and permanent, large deficits, paid for by tax hikes on middle class families, workers and seniors. Their approach would increase taxes, kill jobs, and wreck our economy.” --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Déclaration du Premier ministre Toronto – Le Premier ministre Stephen Harper a fait la déclaration suivante en réponse au rapport mensuel du ministère des Finances sur l’état des finances du gouvernement, qui indique un surplus de 5 milliards de dollars pour la période d’avril à juin 2015 : « Ce rapport indique que sous notre solide leadership économique, le Canada avait un surplus budgétaire de 5 milliards de dollars au cours des trois premiers mois de l’année. Ça signifie que nous faisons mieux que prévu avec notre plan budgétaire, tout en offrant un allégement fiscal historique directement aux familles canadiennes. C’est positif pour le Canada et c’est positif pour l’économie. « Alors que l’économie mondiale reste volatile, notre gouvernement conservateur va continuer à exécuter un plan d’impôts bas et d’équilibre budgétaire afin de stimuler notre économie. « Les Libéraux de Justin Trudeau et le NPD de Thomas Mulcair proposent des augmentations massives des dépenses gouvernementales et de gros déficits permanents, financés par des hausses de taxes pour les familles, les travailleurs et les aînés de la classe moyenne. Leur approche augmenterait le fardeau fiscal, tuerait des emplois et ruinerait notre économie. »

    Julian FantinoAs an immigrant to Canada many decades ago, I know personally how important it is to have supports in place for newcomers when they move to a new country. Our re-elected Conservative government will make it faster, fairer and more affordable for new Canadians and Canadians trained abroad to have their foreign credentials recognized in Canada, which will make a huge impact on a smooth transition for those who want to contribute to our society. Newcomers to Canada are key to our economy’s growth and prosperity, and today’s announcement benefits all Canadians. Those come from abroad know that Canada is a great place to live, raise a family and because of our low tax plan, start a business or earn a great living. Today’s announcement, that we would more than double the Foreign Credential Recognition Loans program to provide 20,000 new loans to internationally-trained professionals over the next five years and would work with the provinces and territories to accelerate accreditation decisions – from one year to 60 days – for high-demand occupations, is great news for those who want to come to Canada. These measures would build on a number of improvements to the foreign credential recognition process our Conservative Government has implemented, including establishing the Foreign Credential Recognition Loans program, which helps new Canadians who do not have sufficient credit history in Canada to obtain financial support to complete the credentialing process. I am proud that our Conservative party is making sure that those who are new to our country, much like myself many years ago, have what they need to succeed in our country while supporting our nation’s overall economic growth.

    Julian FantinoI have delivered millions in federal funding for #Vaughan #Woodbridge-proud of my record on delivering results for our community and proud that our Conservative party is delivering more infrastructure investments in Vaughan than at any time in our history. I have worked hard to raise the quality of life for all of our citizens including seniors and families, by making sure that parks, playgrounds, libraries and seniors clubs are well funded, well maintained, accessible, and where required, expanded. Virtually every community center has received funding, like the recent and substantial funding for Ermanno Bulfon, Woodbridge Memorial, Al Palladini, Vellore Village and others. I know that these places, where our community comes together with friends and family, as I have with my children and grandchildren, are extremely valuable and important to our lives. In addition to this, under our Government we have reduced gridlock through the Subway expansion, and upgraded countless roads in Woodbridge. We are delivering results and improving the quality of life for generations to come, and I am committed to ensuring that this continues for our community.

    Leona AglukkaqConnectivity is essential to not only helping to create economic opportunities in the North, but ensuring people who live in every Region of Nunavut are connected. Our Conservative Government invested over $21 million through the National Satellite Initiative in 2009 and $35 million in 2015 to extend and enhance satellite Internet service in Nunavut. If re-elected our Conservative Government will build on our past support by investing an additional $200 million to support investments in fibre broadband infrastructure in rural and remote communities that currently lack high-speed internet. For more information on the announcement today see below: HARPER PROMISES BROADBAND EXPANSION INTO MORE RURAL COMMUNITIES Prime Minister Stephen Harper today promised his government would continue to dramatically improve broadband connectivity in rural Canada. “Quite simply, there is probably no infrastructure more critical than the internet to ensuring the future prosperity of our vast country,” said Prime Minister Harper. “In today’s digital economy, access to the internet is essential to create jobs, realize economic opportunities and connect Canadians to online services.” While Canada is one of the most connected nations in the world, some gaps in broadband access still exist, particularly in rural and remote areas of the country. The Harper Government has already made significant progress to expand broadband access in rural communities. Between 2009 and 2012, the government helped finance projects to connect nearly 220,000 Canadians. The 2014 Economic Action Plan provided further funding which is poised to bring higher-speed internet to 356,000 households by 2017. Today, the Prime Minister announced that a re-elected Conservative government would set aside a further $200 million to support major new investments in fibre broadband infrastructure in rural and remote communities that currently lack high-speed internet. “Canadians who live in rural areas expect and deserve the same quality of life and access to services,” said the Prime Minister. “By investing in rural broadband, we are not only improving the quality of life of rural Canadians, we are helping to fuel economic growth in rural areas.” In addition to expanding rural broadband access, the Prime Minister noted his government’s strong record of supporting rural Canada, including the financing of local roads, bridges and community infrastructure, support for the agricultural industry and financial assistance for rural health professionals and volunteer firefighters. The Prime Minister noted that both Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair had voted against the Harper Government’s plans to expand rural broadband. (Inuktitut to follow)

I also joined Roland at a meeting with friends from Montreal's Association of Islamic Charitable Projects and had a wonderful time with friends from the Laval Lebanese Sunni community. I spoke at a reception in support of brilliant Conservative Candidate in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce Westmount, Richard Sagala. I paid my respects to Jewish community of Tosh in Boisbriand on passing of Tosher Rebbe, a prominent Holocaust survivor. I met members of Montreal's Syrian community, who thanked me for our commitment to the most vulnerable Syrian refugees.

    Julian FantinoWe are seeing greater volatility in the global economy - from China to Europe - these external risks pose challenges for Canada. I share the Prime Minister's belief that we must stay on course to keep taxes low at a time of increasing instability. I have regularly met with local business leaders and workers who fear Justin's mandatory payroll tax hike on every worker in this country, costing over $1000 in new taxes on a worker earning $60,000 per year. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) found that a payroll tax hike would force two-thirds of small business owners to reduce wages for workers, and over one-third would need to lay off workers (http://www.cfib-fcei.ca/cfib-documents/ResearchReportEn/rr3358.pdf). That would mean more #Woodbridge small businesses would close, have to lay off workers and cut wages. This would put our community's economy at risk. Let me assure all of you: I will fight tooth and nail against Justin's tax hike. Justin’s payroll tax hike will kill jobs, decrease take-home pay and set workers back. At a time of increasing volatility in the global economy, now is not the time for Justin’s dangerous job killing payroll tax hike.

    Julian FantinoI have met extensively with hundreds of small business owners in Woodbridge and launched expansive economic consultations that have helped to shape our Conservative plan to support the local businesses that are the job creating backbone of our economy. I have heard directly from our business community that we need to continue with the low tax plan, free trade, support for skills training and investments in infrastructure that we have seen under Prime Minister Harper, including when I hosted the Prime Minister for an economic roundtable. Additionally, I have worked very hard to bring millions of dollars in funding for job creating local businesses, of which I am very proud. While the global economy remains unstable, our Conservative party has taken concrete steps to ensure the prosperity of local economies just like ours right here in Woodbridge. Key parts of Prime Minister Harper’s Economic Action Plan have included lowering taxes for families and Canadian businesses including, most recently, the largest tax cut for small- and medium-sized businesses in over a quarter century, concluding free trade agreements with 39 countries, including the European Union and South Korea, providing support to Canadians completing apprenticeships, and establishing the Canada Job Grant to ensure skills-training leads to future employment; as well as reforming Canada’s immigration system to ensure that it complements the country’s economic needs. We have also launched the longest and largest investment plan for public infrastructure in Canada’s history, and helping firms invest in new technologies and research and development through targeted tax relief and funding partnerships with Canada’s universities and colleges. As a former member of the Vaughan Industrial Development Advisory Board, and resident of our community for 30 years, I am deeply committed to working with our local business community to ensure the continued prosperity of our local economy. I will continue to meet with our local business community to make sure they have direct input into how we can best support them, as I have done since being elected in 2010.
