TRUDEAU BUDGET FAILS MANITOBA FAMILIES

James Bezan, Member of Parliament for Selkirk-Interlake-Eastman called out Justin Trudeau’s failure to deliver the help he promised Canadian families.

“Never has a Prime Minister spent so much to achieve so little. Despite last year’s economic good fortune, Justin Trudeau has failed once again to deliver the results that matter to Manitobans,” said Bezan.

The federal deficit for this fiscal year is $18 billion, which is triple what Justin Trudeau promised during the 2015 election. With the budget not projected to be in balance again until 2045, these additional deficits will add $450 billion to Canada’s national debt over the next 27 years.

“Justin Trudeau’s budget is failing the hardworking people of Manitoba. Our province was only mentioned four times in the 369 page document,” said Bezan. “Justin Trudeau has failed Manitoban farmers, seniors and small business owners with by slamming them with higher taxes. The simple fact is that Justin Trudeau is failing once again to match his big promises with action.”

The Liberals have been asking Canadian families and local businesses to pay more to offset this government’s out-of-control spending. Trudeau is raising taxes on more than 90% of middle class families in Manitoba. Local businesses are now paying more in taxes, while being labeled as tax cheats by the Liberal government.

“What this government gives with one hand, it takes with another,” said Bezan. “Justin Trudeau’s economic policies are failing the people of Manitoba. Conservatives will put people first.”
