Canadians Need ActionOctober 21, 2021
Justin Trudeau finally announced the return date for Parliament; November 22, which is a full nine whole weeks after the federal election.
Rather than the Prime Minister jet-setting across Canada on vacation while hypocritically telling everyone else to avoid travel, what Canadians want is for the federal government to get to work and take action immediate on their priorities for the future.
Many of you have reached out to me about what you want to see focused on in Parliament and our Conservative team is ready to ensure your priorities and your voice is heard in Parliament.
– The cost of everything – Canada’s inflation rate is at its highest point since 2003, with the cost of living up 4.4 per cent compared to a year ago. You don’t need to look far in the grocery store or at the gas pumps to realize that the cost of everything has ballooned from inflation. Families are now struggling even more to put food on the table and make ends meet. Justin Trudeau and the Liberals seem to think continuing to have the government spend out of control and raising taxes is the way to go. Conservatives know that it’s time to get back to work and tackle the economic challenges that Canadians elected Parliament to handle.
– Natural resources – Albertans are tired of having our energy sector vilified. Rather than depending on dirty oil from places like Saudi Arabia, the Liberals should embrace Canadian energy. This would lead to better results for our economy, and the global environment. Our Conservative team will continue to be steadfast in our support of this industry.
– Small businesses and tourism – Small businesses, especially in the tourism industry have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. These businesses need the proper tools to ensure that they can survive and succeed into the future. Now is the time for action, and our Conservative team will relentlessly fight to ensure businesses have the climate to thrive.
These are a few key issues that Canada is facing and that need to be addressed. Let me know what your priorities are for the upcoming Parliament at www.blakerichards.ca/priorities
