    I'm proud that the Harper Conservatives have received this endorsement from the Ukrainian community. http://www.lucorg.com/news.php/news/9293 “One can be sure that in view of the current Canadian government’s systematic and proactive support for Ukraine against Russian aggression (and aversion toward the Putin regime), no one desires a change of government in Canada more than Putin himself. This is evident beyond a shadow of a doubt.” We have been resolute in our support for our friends in the Ukraine and will never accept Vladimir Putin's occupation of Ukraine. Please like and share if you are of Ukrainian heritage and support the Stephen Harper Conservatives strong stand against Russian aggression.

    New benefits for new parents with a re-elected Conservative government A re-elected Conservative government will provide up to 18 months of job protection for new parents and the option to stretch Employment Insurance (EI) benefits over 18 months. Parents who are interested in earning additional income or starting their own business while at home with their babies will also be able to do so without affecting their EI benefits. Our Conservative Party wants to support new moms and dads as they adjust their work and home lives to the new responsibilities of parenthood. This is on-top of the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit that we introduced this year. The monthly cheques delivered to Canadian parents are at risk with a NDP or Liberal win. Like, share and pledge to vote for me to protect the benefits families in our riding are receiving and will get with a re-elected Conservative Government.

    Yesterday an agreement was reached on the Trans Pacific Partnership and this is great news for Canada and the Saskatchewan economy. Canada will now be the only G7 nation with free trade access to all of the US and Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific continents – that’s over 60% of the world’s economy. Every sector and region of the Canadian economy will benefit from the TPP, including the auto sector, agriculture, and our supply-managed agricultural sectors. Premier brad Wall yesterday spoke about the benefits to Saskatchewan including opening new markets to “Our agricultural equipment manufacturers which sell about $400 million each year to TPP countries and face 5-30% tariffs. This deal eliminates such tariffs within 3 years Our canola faces tariffs in Japan and Vietnam- Huge markets of more than 200 million people. Canola tariffs will now be eliminated in 5 years.” http://cpcp.cc/H3WbYR

    The financial security and well-being of seniors is important to our Conservative Government. I've heard from seniors living in Desnethé Missinippi-Churchill River who are telling me that the changes we have introduced including significant tax relief including cutting the GST and the largest Guaranteed Income Supplement increase in over 25 years are improving their quality of life. Many are using the increased Tax Free Savings Accounts to let their investments grow tax free and pension income-splitting is letting seniors keep more of their hard earned income, I also hear that they are concerned about what they are hearing from Mulcair and Justin. Threating to raise taxes, cut the TFSA amounts and returning the government to massive annual deficits. The Conservatives will protect the benefits seniors have gained over these last few years and Prime Minister Harper has announced new tax savings for single seniors so they can get the same benefits of married seniors. Like and share so they your parents and grandparents know that the Conservatives are the only party who will provide real tax relief to Canada's seniors.

    When my Liberal and NDP opponents campaign on a platform that includes a massive tax on carbon, what they are really promising is a punishing tax on jobs in our province. Our strong provincial economy is built on energy, mining and agriculture. The three areas that will be hit the hardest by Justin and Mulcair's carbon tax scheme. This will kill good paying jobs in our province and what happens when the cost to produce a bushel of wheat or canola goes up? the cost of food goes up making it more expensive to feed your families. When they tax energy it costs more to heat your home or to drive products to markets. Like and Share this so that your friends and family who may be fooled into thinking that a tax on carbon is a good thing know that its a tax on everything, even you job.

If you come to this country to work hard and build a better life then we welcome you with open arms.

    A re-elected Conservative government would issue a Canadian Veterans Card (CVC) to every Veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces. The CVC will be issued the moment a Veteran is released from the military, enabling Veterans Affairs Canada to immediately contact the Veteran and make him or her aware the benefits and services available. Veterans Affairs Canada will also proactively reach out to existing Veterans to ensure they get their CVC. The implementation of the CVC is consistent with a recommendation made by the Veterans Ombudsmen in the October 2012 report entitled Honouring and Connecting with Canada’s Veterans: a National Veterans Identification Card. Yet another commitment to Canada's veterans I am proud to support.

    At the bare minimum a candidate for Prime Minister should know how much his promises cost, and be honest about how much he will raise taxes. We have promised and delivered lower taxes for Canadian families in every election under Stephen Harper while balancing the budget a year before promised.

    If you have friends that are thinking that a vote for the NDP wouldn’t be so bad you must let them know what a vote for Thomas Mulcair really means. We are already seeing the effects of the NDP government in Alberta, massive deficits projected for their first year, job losses, and companies closing up and moving to more business friendly provinces or sadly out of the country. Now one hundred of Thomas Mulcair’s highest profile advisors and supporters have published a NDP Manifesto and it is a chilling look at what Canada could expect from the NDP. Saskatchewan’s economy is based on resource development and agriculture and through the low tax balanced budget record of the Conservatives our province is strong. The NDP Manifesto is proposing billions of new taxes on energy that will raise prices on everything we buy and red-tape and regulations that will make resource development and agriculture growth virtually impossible. The most chilling statement in the NDP Manifesto is a plan to “upend the capitalist system on which the economy is based” this kind of dangerous rhetoric is the very thing that will drive jobs and industry out of Canada. Please like and share and talk to your friends and neighbors because we simply can’t afford the NDP.

    Our Conservative Party will introduce new support for single and widowed seniors in Canada. Single and widowed seniors can face unique financial challenges. Our seniors have worked hard and saved their entire lives, and our Conservative Party knows that they are best able to make decisions about their future and retirement. Already, we’ve made changes that have taken about 400,000 seniors completely off the tax rolls. And there is more to do. A re-elected Conservative government will introduce a $2,000 Single Seniors Tax Credit that will extend additional tax relief to nearly 1.6 million single and widowed seniors in Canada who have pension income. When combined with the existing Pension Income Credit that is claimed by 4.6 million seniors already, this measure will allow single and widowed seniors to receive up to $600 in tax relief every year. We know that single seniors can face unique financial challenges, especially the recently widowed and those on fixed incomes. This new tax credit will provide a targeted benefit to those seniors. The Liberals and NDP have made big promises – unaffordable promises that they would need to pay for with higher taxes paid by all Canadians including seniors. Based on their records to date of opposing Harper Government initiatives to help older Canadians, seniors should worry about whether the NDP and Liberals would actually keep the promises they are making. Canadian seniors can be confident that a Conservative government will deliver on its promises to older Canadians, because we have a proven record and a plan to support seniors. We have kept taxes low and worked to keep money in the hands of seniors to spend on the priorities they choose. Please like and share, talk to your friends and make sure they know the choice between higher taxes and out of control spending and the #ProvenLeadership of the Conservatives and our record of supporting seniors with tax relief and balanced budgets.

    Yesterday Justin speaking to reporters claimed that they were the “party that is telling Canadians the truth about the economy”. Once again he is proving that he’s #JustNotReady during his press conference he made a number of factual errors (Not the Truth). Thanks to David Akin the Sun Media's Parliamentary Bureau Chief he breaks down what Justin said and what the truth is. TRUDEAU: First of all, let’s remind everyone accord to the Parliamentary Budget Officer, according to a wide range of experts, we are in deficit right now … Trudeau here is referring to a July 2015 report from the Parliamentary Budget Office. The PBO report is about the cvrrent fiscal year, FY16, but Trudeau was asked about FY15 and the fact that the government was in surplus in 2015. In any event, the PBO report from July 2015 is an estimate, an estimate based on a series of assumptions about future GDP growth, about future oil prices. Since it is an estimate it is, by definition, not fact. And some of those GDP and oil price estimates have changed since that PBO report was prepared. In any event, the Budget 2015 numbers from the Department of Finance predicted a surplus for FY16. In PBO vs Finance Canada, it’s certainly not a slam dunk that PBO is always right. … Mr. Harper has put us in deficit this year… Absolutely false. So far this year — FY16 — we have data from three months or the first quarter. After three months, we are in surplus to the tune of $5 billion. A good chunk of that surplus — $2.1 billion — is the result of a one-time gain Canada made when it sold its stake in General Motors. But the rest is the result, as Finance said when it released the numbers for June, of increased revenues. We still have a ways to go but, at least so far, we are in surplus, not deficit. Trudeau continued … As for last year’s numbers, we know—and we saw Mr. Harper under-spending and making cuts to veterans affairs… Nope. Wrong. Look to the table at page 16 of the Consolidated Financial Statements of the Government of Canada [PDF] — a document which the Auditor General has verified — and you’ll see that the Department of Veterans Affairs spent $121 million more in FY15 than FY14, an increase of 13.5%. …to aboriginal affairs… Wrong again. Page 16 again. Aboriginal Affairs spent a whopping $1.986 billion — billion, with a ‘b’ — more in FY15 than it spent in FY14. That was an increase of nearly 30%. … to seniors… Strike three. I’ll quote from the AFR (p. 19): “Elderly benefits consist of Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement and Allowance payments. Total benefits were up $2.3 billion, or 5.5 per cent, in 2014–15, reflecting growth in the elderly population and changes in consumer prices, to which benefits are fully indexed. The increase in elderly benefits also reflects the accrual of retroactive payments.” … in the billions of dollars to that he could balance the books in time for his election. it was a political goal that actually has helped us slide into the recession… There is no economist anywhere that has concluded the actions or inactions of the federal government caused two successive quarters of negative GDP growth, the narrowest of definitions of recession. Moreover, as consumer demand remained strong in the first half of the year and employment growth was also strong in the first half, the consensus view of most economists is that Canada was never in a recession. In any event: A sitting prime minister puts the country in recession so he can get credit for balancing the budget? After running six deficits that were incurred to pull us out of recession? Does that even make sense? Source: http://blogs.canoe.com/davidakin/politics/when-a-war-room-fails-a-leader-trudeau-truthiness-and-the-economy/ The only truth that Justin is telling Canadians is that he will run permanent deficits and that he is #JustNotReady

    Unbelievably Justin Trudeau thinks that small business are actually millionaires pretending to save a little on taxes. The facts are that 48.3 per cent of Canada's total workforce are employed by small businesses. Small businesses accounted for $68 billion in exports (25 per cent of Canada's total export value).and roughly 28 per cent of the country's total GDP came from businesses with fewer than 50 employees. Justin's plan to raise taxes on businesses and paycheques will kill jobs and hurt this important part of Canada's economy and Thomas Mulcair has the same plan to drive up the cost of doing business and raising taxes on everything. If you don't own a small business you may work for one or would like to start your own one day. Only the Conservatives will keep taxes low and protect the jobs of millions of Canadians.

    Prime Minister Harper has announced our plan to cut payroll taxes by over 20 percent in 2017 Both the NDP and Liberals candidates here in Desnethé-Missinippi- Churchil River are campaigning on a platform that promises massive tax hikes. Taking money out of your pockets and making it harder for your family to make ends meet. The Conservative plan dramatically reduces payroll taxes, Canadian workers will see their take-home pay increase and businesses - especially small businesses - will be able to create new jobs and invest in their current employees.

As a result, Canada's economy is growing and moving forward despite global economic instability. Approximately 16 million working Canadians will see the benefits of our low-tax, balanced-budget plan to reduce EI premiums by more than 20% in 2017. Put simply, our plan will cut taxes on the middle-class and keep them low. On October 19th you can vote for lower taxes and a balanced budget or vote to see your paycheque cut and a government that will return us to massive federal deficits.

    Our Conservative Government has consistently cut taxes and put more money back into the pockets of every Canadian family. This includes significant support to help with the costs of a child’s future education, including establishing the Canada Student Grants, reforming the Canada Student Loan Program and providing tax relief for scholarship funding and textbooks. A re-elected Conservative government will provide more support to hardworking Canadian families saving for their children’s post-secondary education by doubling the federal grant provided to low- and middle-income families through Registered Education Savings Plans. This will ultimately provide as much as $2,200 more per student in matching government support. mind?

    LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN CANADA FOR 23 MONTHS More proof that our low tax plan is working. Having a government that supports farming fairness, responsible resources development and a plan to actually balance budget has been good for Saskatchewan. Now is not the time for a change to someone who is clearly not ready or the NDP that we can't afford. returning to big deficits and tax hikes will kill jobs, just look what they are doing in Alberta. On October 19th re-elect Rob Clarke and the Harper Conservatives #ProvenLeadership LOWEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN CANADA FOR 23 MONTHS Released on September 4, 2015 Saskatchewan’s unemployment rate was 4.7 per cent (seasonally adjusted) in August 2015, down from 5.2 per cent in July. For 23 straight months, Saskatchewan has had the lowest unemployment rate among the provinces. In August, the national unemployment rate was 7.0 per cent. “Saskatchewan continues to lead the nation with the lowest unemployment rate in large part due to the private sector creating new jobs,” Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said. “Small businesses in the province are more optimistic according to a recent poll by the Canadian Federation of Business (CFIB), they are creating jobs for Saskatchewan people, as well as creating growth that will help keep Saskatchewan strong.” The CFIB Business Optimism Barometer for August was released last week. It shows that optimism has rebounded in Saskatchewan, jumping more than seven points to 61.9 in August, the highest level since November 2014 and well ahead of the national index of 56.7. Employment reached an all-time high in the month of August, with 578,700 people working, up 1,600 (0.3 per cent) when compared to last August, and up 4,000 (0.7 per cent) compared to July (seasonally adjusted). Other highlights include: • Private sector employment was up 17,900 (up 5.5 per cent) from a year ago for the third consecutive month of year-over-year increases. • The number of people participating in the labour force (working and looking for work) reached an all-time high of 615,500. • Major year-over-year gains were reported for health care and social assistance up 7,300; accommodation and food services up 3,300; business, building and other support services up 3,200. • Off-reserve Aboriginal employment was up 1,700 (+3.9 per cent) for six consecutive months of year-over-year increases. • The youth unemployment rate was 10.0 per cent (seasonally adjusted), lowest among the provinces, and below the national rate of 13.1 per cent.

    Responsible resource development creates jobs, fuels growth and promotes prosperity across the country. It is a major driver of our local economy and these jobs are at risk if the Liberals or NDP are elected. The mining sector is particularly critical to Canada’s economy with over 380,000 Canadians employed in mining and thousands more employed indirectly. Since 2006, our government has helped to support mining exploration, investment and jobs through the Mineral Exploration Tax Credit. Today, Prime Minister Harper announced that a re-elected Conservative Government will extend the existing tax credit for three years. We’ll also provide an enhanced tax credit for Northern and remote projects to help support potential mines that face higher costs because of their remote location. Unlike the Liberals and NDP, l support responsible resource development, we’ll help create resource sector jobs and ensure Canada remains world-leader in mining and mining supplier industries. Photo is of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and my colleague Michelle Rempel and I in La Ronge, Saskatchewan during an announcement by the PM for more funding for mining skills-training at Northlands College July 30, 2014.

    Families in my riding know that things are better with the Conservatives. From income splitting, to the expanded Universal Child Care Benefit, increased support for veterans and new savings for seniors. Our low tax, balanced budget plan is working. We have posted a $5 billion surplus in the first quarter of this year after introducing a balanced budget as promised this spring. “Our Government’s plan is anchored by prudent economic management and a commitment to help hard-working Canadian families buy and invest in their homes, cover the costs of child care, save for a child’s education, and prepare for retirement,” saidPrime Minister this week. “By controlling spending, balancing the budget, and keeping our debt low, we can provide real help to Canadian parents while fuelling economic growth at the same time.” The Harper Government has provided substantial tax relief in every budget since 2006 and the typical family with children is now receiving tax relief and increased benefits of up to $6,600 per year. This includes (but is not limited to): •Cutting the GST from seven to six to five percent •Establishing and expanding the Universal Child Care Benefit •Enacting the Family Tax Cut •Increasing the annual Childcare Expense Deduction Limit •Introducing and doubling the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit This tax relief and enhanced benefits is rooted in a foundation of solid fiscal management based on controlling spending, eliminating the deficit, and keeping Canada’s debt levels at the lowest level in the G-7 by far. The Department of Finance reported last week that the federal government recorded a $5 billion budget surplus in the first three months of the current fiscal year. “As a result of our careful economic and fiscal plan, we’re able to let Canadian families keep more of their hard-earned money for their own needs and priorities,” the Prime Minister said. “The budget is balanced, taxes are lower, and benefits for parents are higher. Our plan is working.” Prime Minister Harper pointed out that his Government’s hard work to lower taxes and enhance benefits for Canadian parents would be lost if Justin Trudeau’s Liberals or Thomas Mulcair’s NDP were elected. Both would add billions of dollars in new federal spending, plunging the country back into deficit. And both would take away tax relief and enhanced benefits from Canadian families, and add billions more in new taxes. Neither leader has been up-front about the impact their unsustainable fiscal plans would have on Canadians, meaning that Canadian families face a real and serious financial risk with either Justin’s Liberals or Mulcair’s NDP. "Justin’s ongoing deficits and higher taxes would hurt Canadian families. And Canadian families just can’t afford Thomas Mulcair and the NDP,” noted the Prime Minister. “The choice is clear: only the Conservative Government can be trusted to keep the budget balanced and keep taxes low and benefits in place for all Canadian families.”

    My Colleague Jason Kenny has added up the numbers and proves once again we just can't afford the NDP. The NDP spending spree has some holes in regards to how they will pay for their promises. There is a background document at the link below that goes into great detail the costing of certain programs that the NDP has proposed and what kind of shortfall they will be looking for taxpayers to make up. It is definitely worth a read. The Conservative Party has balanced the budget and is running a $5 billion surplus through the first part of 2015. At the same time we have cut taxes for all Canadians and made record transfers to our province to invest in healthcare social services and infrastructure. That is #ProvenLeadership

    Last night I was pleased to be joined by my colleague Gerry Ritz at our Meadow Lake BBQ. Great night and amazing turn out. Support for my campaign has never been stronger. People are telling me that I'm doing a good job and they are seeing the benefits of Stephen Harper's #ProvenLeadership.

    Don't let the NDP and Liberals fool you. We have made record infrastructure investments in Saskatchewan and will continue to invest in our communities while keeping taxes at record low levels and keeping us out of debt. Justin and Thomas Mulcair are promising massive tax increases on Canadian families and deficits, more proof we need Stephen Harper's #ProvenLeadership

    The Liberals and NDP are promising big government spending schemes with no plan to keep the budget balanced. Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party has balanced the budget while making record breaking investments in infrastructure and transfer payments to Saskatchewan.

    Another one of Thomas Mulcair's star candidates doesn't understand the threat that Vladimir Putin is to the people of he Ukraine and the rest of the world. The Conservative party stands proudly with the people of the Ukraine and the millions of Canadians of Ukrainian decent who know the history of Russian aggression and are witnessing it again.

    The Conservative government has taken big steps to support our brave men and women during their service to our nation but also to support our veterans. We have expanded veteran benefits, improved access to care and increased financial support for injured vets. We are grateful for their service and Canadians support what Stephen Harper and the Conservatives have done to support or military, their families and our vets.

    This is a scandal worth paying attention to. The NDP and their leader Thomas Mulcair have been found guilty of misusing taxpayers money. They have refused to acknowledge their wrongdoing and refuse to payback the $2.7 million dollars of our tax dollars they fraudulently spent. If they believe they can get away with this in opposition just imaging what they would do if put in charge of the budget and the Canadian economy. More proof that we just can't afford the NDP.

    Stephen Harper extends best wishes on the 24th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence August 24, 2015 For immediate release Stephen Harper extends best wishes on the 24th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence Ottawa, Ontario – Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued this statement to mark the 24th anniversary of Ukraine’s independence: “I am pleased to extend my best wishes to everyone in Canada and around the world celebrating the 24th anniversary of the Republic of Ukraine’s independence. “On August 24, 1991, Ukraine’s Parliament declared independence from the Soviet Union. Canada became the first Western country to proudly recognize Ukraine’s sovereignty, and since that time Canadian-Ukrainian relations have only grown stronger, particularly of late as Ukraine has fallen victim to the Putin regime’s aggression and illegal invasion and occupation of Crimea. “Our Conservative government stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the Ukrainian people in the face of Putin’s aggression, imposing sanctions against more than 285 individuals and entities associated with the Putin regime. Moreover, Canada has contributed non-lethal military assistance, significantly enhanced bilateral assistance to Ukraine, is developing and delivering military training and capacity-building programs for Ukrainian forces personnel, and most recently, extended Operation REASSURANCE until June 2016.

    Justin, Mulcair, and the media say TFSAs are only for the "rich" so we need you to LIKE and SHARE the FACTS. Learn more about how only a re-elected Conservative Government will protect your hard-earned investments: http://cpcp.cc/F5YGyu
