    This is a critical election –for you, for your family, and for our community. With Election Day only two days away, I want to highlight the three key issues in this campaign. (1) Strengthening the Economy (2) Cutting Your Taxes (3) Defending Canada Strengthening the Economy In 2008, our government led Canada through the greatest economic recession since the Great Depression. We haven’t denied the challenging times we’ve been through. But, in other countries, the global financial crisis was followed by a debt crisis—something that didn’t happen here. We kept our spending under control. We stimulated the economy in a timely, targeted, and productive way. Then, we returned to a balanced budget, 1 year ahead of schedule. Because of our prudent and focused economic management, we have been able to deliver the best job creation record, the best economic growth record, and by far the lowest debt-GDP ratio in the G7. A strong economy allows us to do more in other areas. We increased transfers to the provinces across the board, increased overall funding for areas like Veterans and Aboriginal Affairs, cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions (by 3.1%), and cut taxes. By contrast, the previous Liberal government cut transfers to the provinces in the 1990s, and oversaw a significant increase in Greenhouse Gas Emissions. A strong economy allows us to do more, and that is why we need to continue with strong Conservative leadership. Cutting Your Taxes Our government cut taxes for everyone—and delivered significant tax relief to those who need it most. Seniors-we introduced pension income splitting, raised the age and pension income credits, and announced a new Single Seniors Tax Credit. Families With Kids –we introduced income splitting, the Universal Childcare Benefit, and the children’s fitness tax credit, raised the childcare expense deduction, and have now committed to up to 18 months of parental leave. For Everyone –we raised the base personal exemption, cut the lowest marginal tax rate, cut the GST, have and will continue to cut taxes for small business owners, and are committing to a major new payroll tax cut. The other parties are both proposing to get rid of income splitting for families and to introduce a major new payroll tax hike. Defending Canada Our party is the only party that supports our ongoing mission against ISIS. ISIS attacked Canada, and is undertaking brutal violence on a mass scale. This terrorist group must be stopped. People who are convicted of terrorism should NOT be able to maintain their Canadian citizenship. Citizenship should have value and you shouldn’t use your citizenship to fight against Canada… if someone is a convicted terrorist and they’re using a Canadian passport to travel around the world to be involved in terrorist organizations and training, attacking our values and attacking the lives of innocent people—should those people have the privilege of Canadian citizenship? Our belief is that they shouldn’t. Do you agree with me on these vital issues? If so, trust me with your vote on October 19th. I love this community, this province and this country and I would be honoured to continue serving as your Member of Parliament for Egmont. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 902-888-2015 or 902-859-2015. Thank you again, and I hope you and your family have a great weekend. -Gail Gail Shea www.gailshea.ca Authorized by Official Agent for Gail Shea

    MEDIA RELEASE- SHEA DEMANDS LIBERAL CANDIDATE APOLOGIZE FOR INSULTING TROOPS AND MISLEADING STUDENTS OCTOBER 14, 2015 - TIGNISH, PEI Recent statements about the activities of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in Syria and Iraq made by Egmont Liberal candidate Bobby Morrissey are deeply troubling, says Conservative candidate, Gail Shea. On October 7, while speaking at Westisle Composite High School, Mr. Morrissey said Canada was partly to blame for the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East because, "...we are bombing people out of their homes." "I heard the words but couldn't believe he'd uttered them in front of hundreds of students and their parents, " said Shea. "It was as if the misery created by ISIS--which has seized territory, systematically killed men, women, and children and forcibly displaced over two million people-- was somehow Canada's fault." Shea says Morrissey made the claim not once but twice in the same day: first at Hernewood Intermediate School and later that evening at Westisle High in a candidates' forum sponsored by the school's political science class. "The RCAF bombs ISIS military installations and artillery pieces which, if not neutralized, would be used by this death cult to destroy villages and end the lives of thousands of civilians," said Shea. "Bobby Morrissey isn't just mistaken -- he's offensively wrong. It boggles my mind that someone seeking public office could be this ignorant of the mission of the men and women of our Royal Canadian Air Force. But it's symbolic of the Trudeau Liberals' understanding of serious international issues." "Our Canadian Armed Forces serve our country with honour and help people in distress. It does not create refugees in foreign lands. Our men and women in uniform risk their lives that we might enjoy the freedoms we do. To tell students otherwise is just wrong," continued Shea. "The threat posed by ISIS is real and has touched us here in Canada. Just one year ago our Parliament was attacked and two soldiers died on Canadian soil because of their roles in protecting our nation." Since Canada's air mission against ISIS began, the Royal Canadian Air Force has destroyed 147 ISIS fighting positions, 36 pieces of ISIS equipment and vehicles, and 16 ISIS explosives factories and storage facilities. "Mr. Morrissey must apologize to the Canadian military and to the students he misled," concluded Shea. "He's running for a seat in the Parliament of Canada. In Parliament we support our soldiers--we don't accuse them of bombing innocent people. These men and women are risking their lives in an effort to bring peace to a very troubled region. The least we can do is tell the truth about their work." Contact: Philip Brown (902-888-2015)

    HOLD ON TO YOUR WALLET: JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S REAL PLAN FOR CANADA’S MIDDLE CLASS Prime Minister Stephen Harper today warned that Justin Trudeau’s high-taxes, high spending and permanent deficits would lead to job losses and economic pain for Canadian families. “Justin Trudeau is promising to cancel income-splitting, claw back Tax-Free Savings Accounts and impose a $1,000 payroll tax hike on the typical Canadian worker,” said Prime Minister Harper. “Make no mistake, Liberal tax hikes will take thousands of dollars out of the pockets and bank accounts of Canadian families.” During the election campaign, Justin has promised to: · Impose new CPP payroll taxes that will hurt the middle class. For someone earning $60,000 per year, the Liberal tax hike will cut their take-home pay by more than $1,000 per year and will cost their employer another $1,000. · Increase EI premiums for workers and employers by more than $2 billion. This will cost average Canadian families hundreds of dollars each and every year. · Cancel income splitting that benefits millions of families and seniors and provides up to $2,000 in tax relief. · Cancel the Conservative government’s Universal Child Care Benefit cheques that benefit all families, costing $1,920 per child under 6 and $720 per child aged 6-17. · Claw back the expandedTax-Free Savings Accounts that benefit 11 million Canadians. · Create a new 33% marginal tax rate for high income earners. · Cancel the education tax credit that provides average tax relief of $480 to each postsecondary student, and the textbook tax credit. · End other tax credits that are helping families and seniors, such as the children’s fitness tax credit worth up to $1,000, or the Home Accessibility Tax Credit for seniors worth up to $1,500. · Introduce carbon taxes that will increase the price of everything – from groceries to home heating to transportation to prescription medicines. · Increase taxes on Canadian small businesses, since Justin Trudeau thinks “a large percentage” of small businesses are just a way for the wealthy to avoid taxes. Yet, Trudeau himself has admitted that all of this money that he will take from Canadians still won’t be enough to pay for his unaffordable promises. So, in addition to raising taxes now, he will also run large, long-term deficits. The only way to pay off that federal debt will be to raise taxes or cut benefits even more in the future – or pass it along to our children and grandchildren. That’s no way to run a household, let alone a country. “Even Justin Trudeau’s many tax hikes can’t prevent him from running massive, permanent deficits,” said the Prime Minister. “His reckless promises would increase government spending by $146.5 billion – and Canadian families would be stuck paying the bill.” Thanks to the Conservative Government’s policies, Canadian workers and businesses are enjoying the lowest federal tax burden in more than 50 years. As a result, Canadians’ take-home pay is higher, businesses are able to invest in new products and create jobs for more workers, and Canada’s economy can grow and move forward despite global economic instability. In 2015 alone, our low-tax plan will return as much as $6,600 of tax relief and enhanced benefits back into the hands of each hard-working family in Canada. “Mr. Trudeau is creating a crisis that doesn’t exist to try and justify a spending spree with taxpayers’ hard-earned money,” said the Prime Minister. “In fact, average middle class wages in Canada are the highest of any G-7 country. Canadians’ real wages have risen by $5,500 USD since 2006, by far the highest in the G7. We have the richest middle class in the world and our Conservative plan will continue to benefit Canada’s middle class moving forward.” The Conservative low-tax, balanced budget plan to protect the economy includes: · Maintaining the 2015 enhancement to Tax-Free Savings Accounts that allows annual contributions of up to $10,000. · A 20 percent reduction in EI premiums that will benefit over 16 million Canadians and their employers. · A new $2,000 Single Seniors Tax Credit for single and widowed seniors. · Helping more Canadians own their own homes through expanding the Home Buyers’ Plan from $25,000 to $35,000 so that first-time home buyers can withdraw savings tax-free to make their down payments. · Implementing the new Home Accessibility Tax Credit which provides up to $1,500 to seniors and disabled Canadians to keep their homes safe and secure. · Establishing a new permanent Home Renovation Tax Credit for home renovation expenses between $1,000 and $5,000. · “Tax lock” legislation to prohibit increases to personal or business income tax rates, the GST, and discretionary payroll tax increases for the next four years. · Opening new markets for Canadian businesses and workers through international trade and the Trans-Pacific Partnership, creating more and better jobs. · Cutting taxes on small businesses from 11 to 9 percent – the largest tax cut in half a century. · New and expanded maternity and parental leave benefits for new parents. “Canadians face a clear choice on October 19th,” said the Prime Minister. “Our Conservative Party is the only party that won’t raise taxes or cut the benefits that families rely on. The Conservative Party has a practical, affordable plan to keep taxes low and create new, well-paying jobs. The Liberals are committed to a high-tax, high-debt agenda that has failed in other countries around the world, in provinces here at home, and that will wreck our national economy.”

    Statistics Canada today reported that Canada exceeded expectations by adding 12,100 jobs in September. Economists expected gains of between 8,000 and 10,000 jobs. I’m glad to see we created more jobs again last month – including strong private sector growth (10,100). In the last year, Canada has created over 200,000 full-time jobs. In addition, most jobs created were in the private sector. Since the depth of the global recession, Canada created 1.3 million new jobs. A re-elected Conservative Government will create an additional 1.3 million new jobs by 2020. We live in an era of increasing global economic uncertainty. Justin has promised to run massive, permanent deficits to finance $145 billion in new spending. We’ve seen how this out-of-control spending plays out in places like Greece. Justin has promised to increase payroll taxes on both workers and our job creators. Each worker earning $60,000 per year will have an additional $1,000 taken off their take-home pay. What’s more, their employer will have to match that amount. This will result in layoffs and deter hiring. Justin has even attacked our small business owners – the engine of our economy – as tax cheats and hinted he’ll ‘tweak’ taxes for small business. Justin’s deficits and tax hikes will leave our fragile economy exposed, cost you money and risk your job.

    TPP a Big Win for PEI Economy Shea Pleased with Opportunities Created Summerside PEI -- October 5th, 2015 Hon. Gail Shea, MP for Egmont and Minister of Fisheries and Oceans, today welcomed the news that a trade agreement in principle with 12 Pacific rim countries was reached in Atlanta. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) presents huge opportunities for Prince Edward Island. “Our government has fulfilled its promise to protect the three pillars of our supply management system and will provide $4.3 billion to support dairy, egg and poultry producers as they adjust to this historic agreement,” said Minister Shea. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is the most comprehensive trade agreement in the world. The TPP will help deepen Canada’s trade ties in the dynamic and fast-growing Asia-Pacific region while strengthening our existing economic partnerships with our partners in the North America Free Trade Agreement and across the Americas. It currently comprises 12 countries representing a combined market of nearly 800 million people and a gross domestic product (GDP) of $28.5 trillion. With the TPP, Canada has now concluded free trade agreements with 51 nations, ensuring Canadian businesses have access to over 60 percent of the world’s economy. The TPP and trade agreements with the European Union and South Korea make Canada the only G-7 nation with free trade access to the United States and the Americas, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region. Prince Edward Island exports to TPP countries averaged $606.7 million annually from 2012 to 2014, stated Minister Shea. This despite the presence of many impediments to trade. The TPP will eliminate tariffs on almost all of Prince Edward Island’s key exports, including aerospace, seafood, and processed potatoes. “Today's agreement-in-principle represents a huge win for PEI. It will open new markets for our major exports, energize small and medium sized businesses, and offer the single best opportunity for Island youth to return home to well-paying jobs," concluded Minister Shea. Main advantages Prince Edward Island: duty-free market access for the majority of industrial goods, including aerospace products; Aerospace is Canada’s largest exporter of leading-edge technology – ranked third worldwide in civil aircraft production. Nearly 80 percent of the sector’s output is exported. From 2012 to 2014, Prince Edward Island exported an annual average of $58.8 million worth of aerospace products to TPP countries. duty-free market access for most agricultural and agri-food products, including blueberries and prepared potatoes; Prince Edward Island’s annual exports to TPP countries of prepared potatoes, including french fries and potato chips, were worth, on average, $186.6 million from 2012 to 2014. The TPP will eliminate tariffs on the following potato products: In Japan, tariffs of up to 13.6 percent on prepared potatoes will be eliminated within three years for frozen french fries and within 5 years for other potato products; In Vietnam, tariffs of up to 34 percent will be eliminated within five years; In Malaysia, tariffs of up to 8 percent on certain processed potatoes will be eliminated upon entry into force; In Australia and New Zealand tariffs of up to 5 percent on prepared potatoes, including french fries, will be eliminated upon entry into force; Frozen blueberries: In Japan, tariffs of up to 9.6 percent will be eliminated upon entry into force; In Vietnam, tariffs of up to 30 percent will be eliminated within three years; In Malaysia, tariffs of 5 percent will be eliminated upon entry into force duty-free market access for fish and seafood, including lobster and mussels; Examples of fish and seafood products exported by Prince Edward Island that will benefit from tariff elimination include: In Japan, tariffs of up to 5 percent on lobster, 10 percent on mussels and 10.5 percent on oysters will be eliminated upon entry into force; In Vietnam, tariffs of up to 34 percent on lobster will be eliminated within three years; In Malaysia, tariffs of up to 8 percent on lobster will be eliminated upon entry into force; In New Zealand, tariffs of up to 5 percent on lobster will be eliminated.
