Cheryl Gallant, MP with Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty
Ottawa, Ontario – Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant welcomes the new federal budget – Economic Action Plan 2013 – and its continued focus on job creation, economic growth, and long-term prosperity as good news for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. The Plan, which will see Canada return to balanced budgets in 2015, keeps federal taxes at their lowest level in 50 years.
“While Canada has the best job creation record among all G-7 countries since the worst of the global recession with over 950,000 net new jobs, we recognize that the global economy remains very challenging,” said MP Gallant. “In Economic Action Plan 2013, our Conservative government remains squarely focused on the number one priority of Canadians, with a forward-looking plan to help create jobs and grow the economy in Ontario and across Canada.”
MP Gallant outlined that Economic Action Plan 2013 includes key measures to strengthen Canada’s economy, including:
Economic Action Plan 2013 also confirmed the Conservative government’s continued all-time record support for hospitals, schools, and other important health and social services in Ontario.
“Unlike the 1990s, we will not slash transfers to healthcare and education services that hard-working Canadians families depend on. And nor will we follow the NDP’s plan for risky tax schemes, like a $21 billion carbon tax, that will raise the price on everything Canadians buy. Our Conservative government is protecting the services that Ontario families depend on,” concluded Cheryl Gallant, MP.
