Despite the sour media reports,
Canada has a bright future.
We need to figure out where we stand. Just five years ago, the financial world was scary place. The global economic crisis of 2008 took a severe toll on every major G7 nation, and slammed
Canada hard in 2009. Credit was frozen. Small businesses struggled. Factories went dark. 204,000 jobs were lost in 60 days. Economic fear replaced hope and optimism in
Canadian homes. The trouble came from
outside of Canada,
and every nation was affected.
Fortunately, Conservative policies and a steady-hand protected us better
There still are dangers to avoid. The Trudeau Liberals would raise taxes and impose leftist policies that discourage investment and innovations, hurt job growth, and increase the cost of government at the expense of Canadian families.
It is now 2014, yet many of the world’s advanced nations still struggle to recover. However, thanks to broad political support from average Canadians, and the experienced and responsible leadership of Prime Minister Harper and his Cabinet, Canadians have consistently led the industrialized world in recovery, financial stability and job growth.
There’s more great news. Conservative Government policies will lead to a balanced federal budget by 2015 - without raising taxes or cutting investments in health-care and social service transfers to the Provinces.
Job growth is steady, and will be further boosted by up to 80,000 more jobs, once our new EU Trade Agreement adds perhaps another $l2 billion to our GDP. A federal budget surplus of more than $3.5 Billion is projected for 2015.
These facts should convince, that
Canada’s best days are ahead – if
we stay on the right track. It is
worrisome that a sudden turn to inexperienced leadership and failed policies of
the past, could derail the steady progress the Conservative team has made for Canada.
Canadian quality of life is under threat from poor political ideas and inexperience of discordant voices who want to impose their own agenda.
Also remember, that the old taxpayer $2 per-vote taxpayer subsidy to political Parties will finally end in 2015. The Liberals and NDP bitterly opposed this reform measure, which used to cost the taxpayer $30 million a year. Scrapping this giveaway was the right and democratic thing to do — as Parties must find support for their policies voluntarily from Canadians.
The political landscape is evolving, and Canadians need to know where they stand when the negative discouraging voices attempt to divert voters from the course of progress.
