    Today is Election Day, and you have an important choice to make. Under the proven leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Canada has one of the strongest economies in the developed world. We've got the richest middle class. Record low levels of poverty. Forbes says we're the best place in the world to do business. And we've done all of this while balancing our budget and reducing federal taxes to their lowest levels in decades. We know that Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair would do the opposite — so we need to re-elect a Conservative government to protect our economy. That's what this election is all about. Your vote could be the difference — we know this election will be close. So get out and vote, and share this message with your friends and family and encourage them to vote Conservative as well. Thank you for your support!

    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.”

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper today warned that Justin Trudeau’s high-taxes, high spending and permanent deficits would lead to higher cost of living and would take money and benefits away from Canadian seniors. “Justin Trudeau has vowed to claw back Tax-Free Savings Accounts and cut benefits Canadian seniors have come to rely on, such as pension income splitting and the Home Accessibility Tax Credit,” said the Prime Minister. During the election campaign, the Liberals have promised to: · Cut the Conservative government’s expansion to Tax-Free Savings Accounts that benefit 11 million Canadians. · Cancel income splitting that benefits millions of families and seniors and provides up to $2,000 in tax relief. · Create a new 33% marginal tax rate for high income earners. · End other tax credits that are helping seniors, such as the Home Accessibility Tax Credit 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. The Liberals have also promised other tax hikes on small businesses that create jobs and fuel Canada’s economy, and on Canadian families. 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 long-term deficits. The only way to pay off that federal debt will be to raise taxes even more in the future and cut more programs and benefits – 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 seniors and families would be stuck paying the bill.” The Conservative low-tax, balanced budget plan to protect the economy for the next four years will provide important benefits to seniors: · Maintaining the 2015 enhancement to Tax-Free Savings Accounts that allows annual contributions of up to $10,000. · A new $2,000 Single Seniors Tax Credit for single and widowed seniors. · 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. · Giving seniors greater flexibility in managing their retirement income by reducing the minimum withdrawal requirements for Registered Retirement Income Funds. · Raising the Lifetime Capital Gains Exemption from $500,000 to $800,000 and indexing it. “Canadians face a clear choice on October 19th,” said the Prime Minister. “The Conservative Party is the only party that won’t raise taxes or cut the benefits that seniors rely on. Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are committed to a high-tax, high-debt agenda that has failed in other countries around the world and in provinces here at home, and will wreck our national economy.”

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper today warned that Justin Trudeau’s high taxes, massive spending and permanent deficits would lead to job losses and business closures for Canada’s small business owners. “Canada’s small businesses are the beating heart of our economy,” said the Prime Minister. “Yet Justin Trudeau doesn’t understand or appreciate the challenges they face and the hard-work they put into their businesses and our communities. His tax hikes will hurt Canadian small business owners, cause job losses, and result in business closures.” In this campaign, Justin Trudeau has promised to: · Impose new CPP payroll taxes on small businesses and their workers. 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 payroll taxes for small businesses and their workers by more than $2 billion per year. This will cost average Canadian families hundreds of dollars each and every year, and their employers even more. · Introduce a carbon pricing scheme that will increase the business costs of everything – including transportation. · Increase taxes on Canadian small businesses, since Justin Trudeau says, unbelievably, that “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 will not 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 on Canadian businesses even more in the future. “Even Justin Trudeau’s many tax hikes can’t prevent him from running massive, permanent deficits,” the Prime Minister said. “His reckless spending promises would increase government spending by $146.5 billion – and Canadian small businesses owners would be stuck paying the bill.” This stands in stark contrast to the Conservative Party’s plan to support Canada’s small businesses. Canadian small businesses represent almost 99 percent of all businesses in the country and employ nearly 70 percent of all Canadians working in the private sector. To help small businesses grow and create jobs, the Conservative government has delivered substantial ongoing tax relief to small businesses and their owners. This includes: · Reducing the corporate income tax rate for small businesses to 11 per cent and increasing the amount of income eligible for this lower rate to $500,000. These two changes are reducing taxes for small businesses by $2.2 billion in 2015 alone. · Committing to cut the small business tax rate further to 9 percent over the next four years – the largest tax rate cut for small businesses in more than 25 years – providing $2.7 billion in tax relief to nearly 700,000 small business over this period. When this tax cut for small businesses is fully implemented, the amount of federal income tax paid by small business will be 46 per cent lower than in 2006. This represents an annual tax reduction of up to $38,600 that can be reinvested in the business to fuel its growth and create new jobs. In addition, a re-elected Conservative Government will cut payroll taxes on small businesses by more than 20 percent, beginning in 2017. This means that a small business with 15 employees earning, on average, $40,000, will experience a net payroll tax decrease of $3,276. “Our Government has consistently lowered taxes on small businesses,” the Prime Minister said. “And in this campaign we’re the only party that’s committed to lowering them further, so that businesses can hire and grow.” “Canadians face a clear choice on October 19th,” concluded Prime Minister Harper. “Our Conservative Party is the only party that will lower taxes on small businesses and keep them low. The Conservative plan to protect our economy will help it grow and create 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 ultimately wreck our national economy.”

    Today Prime Minister Stephen Harper unveiled his low-tax, balanced-budget plan to protect Canada’s fragile economy over the next four years. The platform sets out concrete plans to keep Canada’s budget balanced, to keep taxes low and lower them further, to open new markets for Canadian businesses and workers, to create more and better jobs, and to help more Canadians own their own homes. “Our number one priority is protecting Canada’s economy,” Prime Minister Harper said. “Our low-tax, balanced budget plan will keep it moving forward and creating jobs over the next four years.” The Conservative plan to protect our economy is focused on the following key priorities: · Keeping the federal budget balanced. · Lowering taxes on small businesses and workers. · Aiming to create another 1.3 million new, well-paying jobs by 2020. · Opening new markets for Canadian businesses and products through new trade agreements. · Aiming to add more than 700,000 new homeowners by 2020. · And providing new tax relief and benefits to families and seniors. The global economy remains weak and in turmoil. Yet Canada has continued to fare relatively well. We have led the G-7 in economic growth and job creation. The Canadian economy has created more than 1.3 million net new jobs since the depths of the global economic recession. And the vast majority of these jobs are in full-time positions in high-wage, private sector industries. “While the Canadian economy is stronger than other countries’, it remains fragile and needs to be protected,” the Prime Minister said. “Keeping the budget balanced, lowering taxes, and making affordable, targeted investments is the right plan in the face of global economic turmoil.” The Prime Minister observed that the Conservative Party’s platform is the only one that does not raise taxes on businesses and workers and has a clear, credible plan to keep the budget balanced each and every year. “Canadians face a clear choice in this election,” he concluded. “The choice is between our low-tax, balanced budget plan to protect our economy and create new jobs, and the permanent deficits and higher taxes proposed by the Liberals and NDP that will ultimately harm our economy and put jobs at risk.”

    Today, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced new work and income benefits for moms and dads having a baby. 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. The Prime Minister also announced that women receiving maternity benefits and parents receiving parental benefits would be able to earn additional employment and self-employment income while receiving EI benefits. “The birth of a new baby is always an exciting time, but it’s also a period of tremendous change for parents,” the Prime Minister said. “Our Conservative party wants to support new moms and dads by providing additional career flexibility and opportunities to earn during the transition to parenthood.” Each year, 170,000 women receive EI maternity benefits and 190,000 parents receive EI parental benefits. The number of dads who receive parental benefits has continued to increase, and is now approximately 30%. Under a re-elected Conservative government, the four-part package announced today would achieve the following: · The federal labour code will be amended to provide job protection for new parents until their babies have reached the age of 18 months. · Parents can opt to receive EI parental benefits at the full rate for up to 35 weeks, or they can extend those payments at a lesser rate up to a maximum of 61 weeks. When combined with other EI maternity leave, this means parents will be able to receive a stream of income until their babies are 18 months old. · A new two-year pilot project will be established to allow parents to earn self-employment income, without impacting their EI maternity or parental benefits, up to 100% of the weekly EI maximum insurable earnings threshold. · Women receiving EI maternity benefits will also be able to earn employment income under the Working While on Claim pilot project. This is currently only permitted for those receiving EI parental benefits. “These fair and affordable commitments will provide new parents with additional flexibility, and will allow those who are interested in starting new businesses to do so – all without raising taxes on Canadians,” said the Prime Minister. He noted that the NDP would raise EI payroll taxes by $5.3 billion while the Liberals will increase EI payroll taxes by $2.2 billion in order to pay for their promises. “The Liberal and NDP plans will cost average Canadian families hundreds of dollars each and every year in additional taxes – and they will kill jobs.”

    On October 1st, former Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chretien shocked Canadians by saying he "welcomed" Russian President Vladimir Putin's military intervention in Syria. At the time, we explained that were not surprised, as Mr. Chretien was personally meeting with Putin in Moscow in the spring - just as Russian troops were trying to crush democracy in Ukraine. We are disappointed to learn that Justin Trudeau's Liberals continue to use Mr. Chretien on the campaign trail - this time at a Liberal event in the Quebec riding of Saint-Maurice—Champlain. Despite words to the contrary, it's clear that Justin sees no problem with Mr. Chretien's outrageous praise of Vladimir Putin. Actions speak louder than words. If Justin was serious, he would immediately and completely disassociate himself and his campaign from Jean Chretien. Once again, Justin has proven why he's just not ready.
