For too long, vocational education and the trades were not as respected as college or university educations. That is the wrong mindset and our government has worked to change it.
We believe that apprenticeships play a vital role in our economy. Canada will always need men and women who are prepared to use their hands as well as their minds to help build the country’s future.
Today, Prime Minister Harper announced that our government would expand and extend the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit to help more businesses hire even more apprentices. This measure will help grow our economy and ensure our long-term prosperity.
Justin Trudeau has opposed every single tax cut we introduced. He says that he will cancel the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax credit, and he wants to take money out of the pockets of Canadians to create big government programs that will do nothing to help Canadian families.
That is the price of inexperience and bad fiscal management. He’s just not ready.
Thomas Mulcair has never seen a tax cut he liked. He wants to raise taxes for all Canadians. He plans his big programs with union bosses in order to increase the size of government. Canadians can’t trust him.
Mulcair and his NDP are proposing reckless plans that will set Quebec, and all Canada, back. He will be a real economic disaster.
We’ve come too far to take risks with high-tax, reckless policies. Unlike Justin and Thomas Mulcair, Prime Minister Harper will support small businesses and apprentices, to create jobs and economic growth.
