    Leona AglukkaqThe Prime Minister just announced new measures to help make life more affordable for Canadian families. These new measures will directly help Nunavummiut by putting money in the pockets of parents. We will be increasing and expanding the universal child care benefit (UCCB) in addition to a number of other measures. The increase of the UCCB means that in a year, parents will receive up to $1,920 per child under the age of 6!

    Julian FantinoJULIAN FANTINO HOSTS PRIME MINISTER HARPER IN VAUGHAN FOR MAJOR TAX CUT ANNOUNCEMENT Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced new measures to help make life more affordable for Canadian families. “Under the strong and dependable leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, our Government is focused on helping hard-working Canadian families make ends meet, by making important priorities like child care and after-school sports more affordable. “Today, I was proud to host Prime Minister Harper in Vaughan to announce major tax relief and savings for families. Under this plan, every #Vaughan family with children will have more money in their pockets, to spend on their priorities as a family. “Our Government is fulfilling its promise to balance the federal budget. We are now in a position to fulfill our promise to help Canadian families balance theirs. “All families with children will benefit from the new measures introduced by our Government. The average tax relief and benefits for these families will be $1,140 in 2015.” The proposed new measures include: • The Family Tax Cut, a federal tax credit that will allow a higher-income spouse to transfer up to $50,000 of taxable income to a spouse in a lower tax bracket. The credit will provide tax relief – capped at $2,000 – for couples with children under the age of 18, effective for the 2014 tax year. Income splitting is helping seniors across the country, which is why the Government is now proposing similar relief for families. • Increasing the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) for children under age six. As of January 1, 2015, parents will receive a benefit of $160 per month for each child under the age of six – up from $100 per month. In a year, parents will receive up to $1,920 per child. • Expanding the UCCB to children aged six through 17. As of January 1, 2015, under the expanded UCCB, parents will receive a benefit of $60 per month for children aged six through 17. In a year, parents will receive up to $720 per child. • Increasing the Child Care Expense Deduction dollar limits by $1,000, effective for the 2015 tax year. The maximum amounts that can be claimed will increase to $8,000 from $7,000 for children under age seven, to $5,000 from $4,000 for children aged seven through 16, and to $11,000 from $10,000 for children who are eligible for the Disability Tax Credit. • Earlier this month, the Prime Minister announced our Government’s intention to double the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and make it refundable. The maximum amount of expenses that may be claimed under the credit will be doubled from its current limit to $1,000 for the 2014 tax year and subsequent tax years, and the credit will be made refundable effective for the 2015 and subsequent tax years.

    Jason KenneyThis video of a jihadi destroying his Canadian passport perfectly demonstrates why we should strip terrorists of citizenship. The point is that joining a terrorist organization implicitly constitutes a renunciation of the loyalty upon which citizenship is predicated.

    Steven FletcherWatch what I said in the House of Commons on Monday Oct 27, 2014: Mr. Speaker, Brian Bowman is a friend, a husband, a father, a lawyer and a graduate from my favourite high school, Shaftesbury. Now he is Winnipeg's newest mayor. Last Wednesday, Manitobans elected their mayors and reeves and there was a very high turnout. The Winnipeg election was hard fought. I would like to mention the successful candidates from my riding: Marty Morantz in Charleswood-Tuxedo; Scott Gillingham in St. James-Brooklands; Shawn Dobson in St. Charles; and Wilfred Taillieu, who continues to be the Mayor of Headingley. I wish to also thank the previous City Councillors from my riding: Scott Fielding, Paula Havixbeck, and Grant Nordman. On the same day that Manitoba was having its elections, the Parliament buildings were attacked. The contrast between the two events was stark. Canadians have demonstrated that Canada will always be the true north, strong and free—the Maple Leaf forever.

    Joe OliverStatement on the 2014 Toronto Mayoral Election “I wish to congratulate Toronto Mayor-elect John Tory on his victory tonight and his hard-fought campaign. As the federal minister responsible for the Greater Toronto Area, I look forward to working with John to improve the quality of life for all Torontonians by further strengthening the GTA's economy through job creation, lower taxes and building modern public infrastructure. “Our Government understands that the top priorities of the people of Toronto, and the whole of the GTA, are relieving traffic congestion, creating jobs and keeping taxes low. “Since 2006, under the leadership of Prime Minister Harper, our Government has invested $33 billion in vital infrastructure including $4.54 billion across the GTA. In Economic Action Plan 2013 we announced the New Building Canada Plan, which combined with other funding, will provide $70 billion over the next 10 years. This is the largest federal investment in job-creating infrastructure in Canadian history. “A fair share of that will be spent in Toronto. We have already pledged to build the Scarborough subway and have invested in the Spadina subway extension, in addition to hundreds of millions of dollars in modernization projects at the TTC, the revitalization of recreational and cultural facilities like the former Maple Leaf Gardens and the Toronto Reference Library and many other projects that enhance the daily lives of the people of Toronto. “Our Government is actively helping local municipalities across Canada, including Toronto, build a better future.” Joe Oliver Member of Parliament for Eglinton-Lawrence Minister of Finance

    Julian FantinoSTATEMENT BY MP JULIAN FANTINO ON THE 2014 MUNICIPAL ELECTION RESULTS IN VAUGHAN For Immediate Release October 28th, 2014: Vaughan, ON. The Honourable Julian Fantino, Member for Parliament for Vaughan issued the following statement on the 2014 municipal election results in Vaughan: “I extend my best wishes and congratulations to Vaughan’s Council Members on their election victory, and gratitude to all candidates who put their names on the ballot. As political leaders, we are vested with a humbling responsibility to serve our constituents with integrity and deliver results. Hardworking citizens of our community deserve nothing less. “Over this municipal election campaign, residents made their priorities clear, including lower taxes, safe communities and reduced gridlock. These are shared priorities that our Government is already delivering on, including funding the York-Spadina Subway extension to Vaughan, lower taxes for families, investments in job creating small businesses, and the passage of laws that put victims’ rights first and hold violent criminals accountable. “I look forward to collaborating with the Mayor, along with Regional and Local Councillors to advance the priorities of Vaughan families and seniors, and to protect the interests of hardworking taxpayers.” - 30 -

    Julian FantinoToday I was joined by members of the Vaughan community and local Veterans for the annual Beechwood Cemetery Remembrance Day Service. It was an honour to lay a wreath on behalf of our Government and to pay tribute to Canada’s brave men and women in uniform. And with great sadness, our community came together to mourn the loss of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo, who were recently the targets of fatal terror attacks in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, and Ottawa, Ontario. We will never forget these brave young men, and I continue to send my thoughts and prayers to their loved ones. Thank you to all who joined us.

    Leona AglukkaqOn behalf of my family I would like to express our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Corporal Nathan Cirillo for his sacrifice in the line of duty. Corporal Cirillo will forever be remembered as a great Canadian. I would also like to extend our thoughts and prayers to those affected and recovering from yesterday’s heinous attack. In addition, I owe my deepest gratitude to Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers and the rest of our first responders and police forces. I will never forget the personal risk that these brave women and men went through yesterday in order to protect those of us at Parliament and ensure that we made it home to our families. Canada is a great country and we have given many sacrifices over the years to ensure that Canadians can enjoy a free and safe society. As we move on from the events of yesterday, I want to say thank you to all who have expressed concern and support to me and my family during this difficult time. Nagligivapsi.

    Gail SheaWhen we formed government, the lobster fishery was facing a number of challenges. We took action, we worked with the industry and he invested $50 million in the Atlantic lobster sustainability program. The results are undeniable, Mr. Speaker, since 2007, total lobster landings have increased by 93%. And our last lobster exports for a high of $1.1 billion last year. Our government, Mr. Speaker, led by my seat mate, has worked to secure trade agreements to expand agreements for Canadian lobster and expand more markets for delicious Canadian lobster. http://youtu.be/1TaySKOlr8Y
