Statement from MP Mark Strahl on 2022 NDP-Liberal Budget

CHILLIWACK – Mark Strahl, Member of Parliament for Chilliwack—Hope released the following statement regarding the 2022 NDP-Liberal Budget:

“The NDP-Liberal budget gave no relief to Canadians who are already suffering from record-high inflation and facing a cost-of-living crisis. Canadians needed a break in this budget and they didn’t get it.”

“Canadians need a plan to deal with the cost-of-living crisis, bolster our economic prosperity and competitiveness, and have hope for a better future. Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh failed to deliver that plan, instead adding another $56 billion dollars in uncontrolled spending to our national debt – borrowed money that can only be paid back through higher taxes from Canadians who are already struggling to make ends meet.”

“The federal government is now 25 percent bigger than it was before the pandemic. The more the NDP-Liberal coalition spends, the more inflation increases and the more expensive everything gets. Instead of tax breaks for Canadians, Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh are using inflation revenue to grow the size and cost of government to Canadian families who are already stretched past their limit.”

“This was the NDP-Liberal coalition’s chance to correct course and deliver a responsible budget, but they failed. Unfortunately, it is Canadian families who will pay the price for this reckless budget. Conservatives will continue to be the voice of the millions of Canadians who are left behind by this NDP-Liberal coalition and their irresponsible and unsustainable fiscal plan.”
