Trudeau still hasn’t delivered on key promises for seniors he made in 2015

Justin Trudeau is planning to raise taxes on Canadian seniors and he still hasn’t delivered on key promises he made to seniors during the 2015 election.

Trudeau has raised taxes on seniors by hiking CPP premiums, cancelled tax relief for seniors that use public transportation, and will add 31 cents per litre to the price of gasoline.

He’s raised taxes all while failing to introduce the senior’s price index which has put even more financial pressure on Canadian seniors.

Unlike Justin Trudeau, Andrew Scheer has a plan to put nearly $700 back in the pocket of seniors by reducing income taxes on pensions, taking GST off home heating, and cancelling the carbon tax.

Trudeau is making promises to seniors now because he needs your vote. But just like in 2015 he will break his promises because he is not as advertised.

Only an Andrew Scheer government can be trusted to stand up for seniors and help you get ahead.
