    Julian FantinoJULIAN FANTINO: RESULTS FOR VAUGHAN & EXPERIENCED LEADERSHIP Fantino pledges continued focus on lower taxes, local infrastructure and safe streets Amid global uncertainty, Julian Fantino and Stephen Harper have demonstrated steady, experienced leadership to grow our economy and keep Canadians safe from escalating security threats. Representing the Conservative Party in Vaughan-Woodbridge, Julian Fantino has a track-record of results drawn on his experience as a police leader for over 40 years, an active community volunteer, and parent who raised his children in Woodbridge since 1981. Fantino and Harper have delivered on the values and priorities of Woodbridge families: · Tax cuts for Woodbridge families, seniors, single individuals and small businesses. · Record investments in road renovations and over $600 million dollars to build and expand the York-Spadina Subway to Vaughan. · Historic investments in local infrastructure to enhance quality of life, including upgrades and expansions of community centers, parks and sports facilities. · Direct job creating investments in Vaughan’s entrepreneurial small business community. · Tough sentences for violent criminals, child predators and elder abuse, unequivical opposition to drug legalization, and unprecedented support for victims of crime. With great uncertainty in the global economy and escalating threats to our security, Fantino reiterated his concern with Justin Trudeau's risky, high-tax plan. Now is not the time for Trudeau’s risky plan that will raise taxes, cancel benefits for families and seniors and undermine the security of Canada. Fantino and Harper’s proven experience and track record is helping Woodbridge residents by lowering taxes for families and seniors, and taking action to improve community safety. Only Fantino and Harper can be trusted to keep cutting taxes, and keep our economy on track. Julian has been an active member of the Vaughan community since 1981, including as the former co-chair of the Vaughan Hospital Foundation fundraising gala, as an active supporter of St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, a grassroots champion of community center development for local youth and the founder of local organizations dedicated to young adults with developmental disabilities and child protection. Quotes “In an increasingly uncertain world, only Prime Minister Harper has the proven experience to keep our economy strong and our residents safe. Justin Trudeau's risky plan will raise taxes, cancel benefits for families and seniors, and undermine the security of our country. Since 2010, I have worked hard to deliver for our community – lower taxes, safe streets and unprecedented investments in local infrastructure. With your support, I will continue to deliver on your priorities: lower taxes, increased support for families and seniors, and real action to crack down on violent crime." –Julian Fantino, Conservative Candidate for Vaughan-Woodbridge

    Julian FantinoUnder Prime Minister Harper, our Government transferred almost $3 billion directly to families, benefiting thousands of local families with cheques totaling hundreds to thousands of dollars, with the expanded Universal Child Care Benefit. I am extremely proud that our Government is helping families with children, by putting their money back in their pockets to spend on the growing costs to raise a child. Our new family measures, which were announced by the Prime Minister in Vaughan, alongside others introduced by Conservatives since 2006, will provide tax relief and benefits of up to about $6,600 for an average Canadian family of four. This is the right thing to do, to provide fairness for parents who shoulder so many costs. Raising taxes on all Canadian taxpayers, as proposed by Justin Trudeau, is not a solution to the increasing costs of living. It is a recipe for disaster, a risky scheme that we cannot afford. Our low-tax plan is not just benefiting families. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has introduced over 200 tax cuts, helping single individuals, baby boomers and seniors. Overall, we have removed over 1 million low-income Canadians from the tax rolls, including nearly 400,000 seniors. All while the share of Canadians living in low-income families is at its lowest level in three decades, and we have reduced the overall tax burden to its lowest level in 50 years. Our Government cut the personal income tax rate to 15%, and have increased the amount Canadians can earn without paying tax. We also cut the GST from 7% to 5%. In Vaughan, I hosted the Prime Minister to announce the doubling of the Tax Free Savings Account – and we have followed through on that commitment by expanding the most important personal savings vehicle since RRSPs. Our seniors are benefiting from the GST cut and TFSA expansion. However, we have gone further by introducing pension income splitting, increasing the Age Credit, the Pension Income Credit, and we delivered the largest increase to the Guaranteed Income Supplement in a generation. In the last budget, we reduced the Minimum Withdrawal Factors for the Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs) to allow seniors to preserve more of their retirement savings, and introduced a New Home Accessibility Tax Credit for seniors and persons with disabilities. Amid global economic volatility, Prime Minister Harper is taking action to keep our economy growing, our budget balanced and taxes low. With great instability around us, now is not the time to take unnecessary risks or tax hikes on middle income families.

    Jason KenneyAn anti-Conservative group that opposes the boosted Universal Child Care Benefit is spreading false information online. The false ad focuses on the old Child Tax Credit, which was only worth about $300 at the end of the year, not the $2250 as the ad claims. Many families were never eligible to receive it at all. The government has folded this credit into a larger and simpler $720 increase of the Universal Child Care Benefit, which goes to every kid in Canada. Regardless of income, the expanded Universal Child Care Benefit leaves more money in the pockets of 100% of families with kids. No exceptions. Finally, the Child Tax Credit is often confused with the Canada Child Tax *Benefit* -- a completely different program. The Child Tax Benefit remains unchanged. Un groupe anti-Conservateurs opposé à la Prestation universelle pour la garde d’enfants améliorée diffuse des renseignements erronés en ligne. La fausse annonce se concentre sur l’ancien Crédit d’impôt pour enfants, qui valait seulement environ 300 $ à la fin de l’année, contrairement au montant de 2 250 $ que revendique l’annonce. Beaucoup de familles n’étaient pas admissibles à la totalité du montant. Le gouvernement a transformé ce crédit en une augmentation plus importante et plus simple de 720 $ à la Prestation universelle pour la garde d’enfants, qui est destinée à tous les enfants au Canada. Peu importe le revenu, la Prestation universelle pour la garde d’enfants élargie laisse plus d’argent dans les poches de toutes les familles avec enfants, sans exception. Enfin, le Crédit d’impôt pour enfants est souvent confondu avec la Prestation fiscale canadienne pour enfants – un programme complètement différent. La Prestation fiscale canadienne pour enfants reste inchangée.
