Supply management negatively impacts other sectors of our economy. Businesses in the food processing and food preparation sectors like restaurants are forced to pay more for basic products and are therefore less competitive.
We've got a plan to increase our competitive advantage on the global stage and save everyday Canadians money.
Equalization payments to the provinces were supposed to unite the country, instead, they encourage recipient provinces to maintain large public sectors, keep taxes high, and intervene more in their economies, which drives out investment and lowers employment and productivity. They don’t have the correct incentives to make their economies more competitive and develop their natural resources, because more private sector growth will lead to smaller equalization payments. It’s a poverty trap.
We’ve got a plan to encourage provinces to invest in our economic stability and climb out of poverty.
There are over 2 million hunters, ranchers, trappers, farmers, target shooters, recreational shooters and collectors who legally possess firearms in our country. However, despite this group being exceptionally law-abiding and the most highly vetted segment in the Canadian population, the existing firearms legislation unfairly targets them, does not respect their property rights, and is highly arbitrary.
We’ve got a plan to focus on crime and fairly treat legal firearm owners right here in Canada.
Canada’s public health care system has the dubious distinction of having the worst wait times of any developed country. Health care costs have been increasing at an unsustainable rate, putting more and more financial pressures on the budgets of provincial governments. The situation is likely to get worse with Canada’s ageing population.
We’ve got a plan to stop the federal government from meddling in provincial matters yet still keep funding universal healthcare.
Moving goods and Canadians from province to province is akin to crossing international borders in some cases. Goods such as alcohol and agricultural products cannot be sold freely across provincial borders because of government monopolies or regulations. Nurses, accountants, or engineers have problems finding work in another province because their skills are not automatically recognized. Safety rules vary from one province to another.
We’ve got a plan to reduce barriers for Canadians moving inside our country.
Our current Liberal government is spending billions of dollars at home and abroad to fight global warming—or “climate change”. In order to lower greenhouse gas emissions, it has imposed taxes and countless regulations, it subsidizes inefficient and costly “green technology,” and it is blocking the development of oil resources crucial to our prosperity.
It is an undisputed fact that the world’s climate has always changed and will continue to change. Until twelve thousand years ago, much of Canada was under ice, and it is thanks to natural climate change that we can live here today.
We have a plan to care for our environment AND focus on prosperity for Canada.
The exclusive priority of the government of Canada on the international scene should be to manage our relations with other countries in order to protect and further the interests of Canadians. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening.
As our national debt continues to mount, the Liberal government devotes more and more resources trying to solve social and economic problems in other countries. It spends billions of dollars every year to help other countries build roads, educate children, and reduce their CO2 emissions. Regardless of how noble the thoughts or causes, a country in debt must focus on their needs at home.
We have a plan to focus on Canada’s health first.
The rights of Canadians to freely hold and express beliefs are being eroded at an alarming speed under the Trudeau government. Some of its recent decisions even require that Canadians renounce their most deeply held moral convictions and express opinions they disagree with.
We have a plan to stick to deep Canadian values that include freedom for all Canadians.
