MONTREAL – Campaigning in Montreal, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau spoke about his plan to create jobs, grow the economy, and strengthen the middle class.
“Canadians know an economy that works for the middle class means a country that works for everyone. Meeting people from coast to coast to coast it is clear: Stephen Harper’s plan is not working for Canadians in the middle class, and those working hard to join it,” said Trudeau. “The Liberal plan will make a real difference in the lives of all Canadians. It will bring change that will help families make ends meet, put more money in their pockets, and bring our country together.”
“Liberals are committed to investing in economic security and growth for the middle class,” continued the Liberal leader. “We will stop giving government cheques to wealthy families, so we can give more to the middle class and lower income families. Our plan will cut taxes for the middle class, so Canadians can keep more of their paycheques. We will also create one bigger, fair, automatic, and tax-free monthly benefit that will help families with the high cost of raising their kids”.
“Harper’s failed plan gives billions of taxpayer dollars to the wealthiest few and does nothing to help middle class Canadians. Mulcair is offering no answers on the economy, choosing instead to support Harper’s plan to send cheques to millionaires,” said Mr. Trudeau. “Canadians know that better is always possible. They want change, and only the Liberal Party is offering a plan that will deliver growth that works for everyone.”
