New GDP numbers from Statistics Canada show GDP/capita falling again | Jun 4, 2024

This was confirmed by Statistics Canada today, who revealed that real GDP per capita declined by 0.7 percent in the first quarter of 2024. If Canada had remained on the same path that the former Conservative Government left them on, Canadians would be $4200 richer. In the most recent budget, the Liberal Government added $61 billion in new inflationary spending, costing the average Canadian family an extra $3,687. Only Common Sense Conservatives will axe the tax and cap the spending to bring home powerful paycheques for everyone.

Axe the Tax for Summer | Jun 2, 2024

Conservatives brought forward a motion to Axe the Taxes for summer, putting hundred of dollars back in Canadians pockets. Families will have to pay $700 more for food this year than they did in 2023. Last year, food banks had to handle a record 2 million visits in a single month, with a million more visits expected in 2024. In the middle of this historic cost-of-living crisis, Trudeau and his NDP coalition partners decided to hike the carbon tax by 23 percent. Conservatives will axe the tax on everything for everyone in a carbon tax election, but until that can happen, Trudeau must adopt this common-sense measure to give Canadians a summer break.
