    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.”

    HARPER RELEASES LOW-TAX, BALANCED-BUDGET PLAN TO PROTECT CANADA’S 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.”

    A RE-ELECTED CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT WILL FIGHT FRAUD AGAINST SENIORS AND ALL CANADIANS WITH INCREASED FUNDING AND MANDATORY MINIMUM PENALTIES The Hon. Joe Oliver, Conservative Party candidate for Eglington-Lawrence, today announced a re-elected Conservative government would increase resources to fight fraud and introduce tougher minimum sentences on fraudsters. “Fraud is the number one crime against Canada’s seniors,” said Joe Oliver. “We need to protect Canadian seniors from fraud and punish those who perpetrate fraud against seniors and all Canadians.” Mr. Oliver announced that a re-elected Conservative government will introduce new Criminal Code changes to ensure any financial fraud over $5,000 with multiple victims would trigger a two-year mandatory minimum sentence – even on first offence – unless the offender pays full restitution of all the stolen funds. He also announced that a re-elected Conservative government will increase resources for the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to focus on internet-based fraud against seniors. “We will ensure that our laws and law enforcement agencies are able to keep pace with the ways criminals are attempting to defraud our seniors,” Oliver said, noting that it’s estimated that between $10 and $30 billion are lost each year to fraud in Canada. He also highlighted the Conservative Party’s strong record of supporting seniors and fighting fraud against seniors, including the Standing Up For Victims of White Collar Crime Act and the Protecting Canada’s Seniors Act. Only the Conservative Party will take action to punish fraudsters for financial crimes committed against seniors and other Canadians. “Justin’s criminal justice priority is to change the law to allow the sale of marijuana in corner stores,” said Oliver. “He doesn’t understand the increasing risks of internet fraud for our seniors.” “Thomas Mulcair’s NDP champion a criminal justice policy that puts the so-called rights of criminals ahead of the rights of victims”.
