MP Questions Liberals Over Deficits, Eliminating Tax Credits

July 6, 2016 - 2:48pm

The October general election saw Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party regain power behind a bevy of promises – they promised to reduce small business taxes, lower taxes for the middle class and run small deficits so they could “invest” in infrastructure.

During the lead up to the election while in opposition the Liberal Party was critical of our Conservative government, falsely claiming that we ignored cities and towns, lost our way on the international stage and after winning they incorrectly claimed we left a deficit – nothing could be further from the truth.
