MP Strahl responds to Trudeau Liberal Fall Economic Statement

OTTAWA – Mark Strahl, Member of Parliament for Chilliwack—Hope released the following statement in response to Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland’s Fall Economic Statement:

“This week, the Minister of Finance tabled the government’s Fall Economic Statement. This economic plan does nothing to address Canada’s cost of living crisis created by out-of-control government spending.”

 “Justin Trudeau is running the most expensive government in Canadian history. His inflationary deficits, to the tune of half a trillion dollars, have sent more dollars chasing fewer goods. His inflationary scheme is hiking up the price of groceries, gas and home heating.”

“Canadians have never paid more in taxes because of this Prime Minister.”

“To reduce inflation and improve Canada’s cost of living, Conservatives had two clear demands. The first was no new taxes. This includes canceling all planned tax hikes and the tripling of the carbon tax. Canadians are struggling to heat their homes and put food on their tables.”

“Our second demand was no new spending. Any new spending by ministers must be matched by an equivalent saving. Cut wasteful spending and stop the inflationary deficits that drive up the cost of everything.”

“None of our demands were met in the Fall Economic Statement and for that reason Conservatives will not support this inflationary update.”
