A message from Andrew Scheer

This election isn’t about me, or even about Justin Trudeau. It’s about you.

Who do you trust to help you and your family get ahead?

Everywhere I go across this great country, I hear the same thing from Canadians. You and your family are working hard, but you are not getting ahead. Everything is getting more expensive, there is less money available at the end of the month, and Justin Trudeau is only making things worse.

In the last four years, he raised taxes on 80 per cent of middle-class families, eliminated tax credits for you and your kids, and brought in a carbon tax that has raised the price of gasoline, groceries, and home heating — all while handing profitable corporations billions in handouts.

If Justin Trudeau is re-elected, his Carbon Tax will go up, and his massive deficits will threaten the quality of Canada’s social programs like health care and education.

You cannot trust Justin Trudeau to help you get ahead. He’s not as advertised.

I spent this election campaign talking about my plan. A new Conservative government will live within its means. We will lower your taxes and put more money in your pockets so that you can get ahead.

We will deliver a Universal Tax Cut that will benefit every Canadian taxpayer. From students to seniors and everyone in between – if you pay income tax, you will pay less under my government. We will boost the RESP to make it more affordable to send your children to get a post-secondary education. We will increase the Age Credit, so seniors have more left over at the end of the month. We will provide tax savings for maternity leave, transit, green home renovations, and your kids’ sports, arts, and learning programs. These are just some of the ways we will make life more affordable for you.

We’ve seen who gets ahead with Justin Trudeau, the wealthy and well-connected who have the right friends in the right places.

I think it’s time for you to get ahead.

Sincerely,

Andrew Scheer
Leader, Conservative Party of Canada
