Inflation Hits Record-Highs Again Under Justin Trudeau | March 16, 2022
Statistics Canada’s report warning that inflation has reached 5.7 per cent.

The residents in Windsor-Essex are feeling the damage Justin Trudeau, with the support of the NDP, has inflicted on our economy, resulting in skyrocketing inflation and a cost of living crisis. In my riding of Essex and across Canada, housing prices have doubled and are up 29 per cent in the last year.
