Ottawa, ON – The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, issued the following statement in response to Justin Trudeau’s political priorities announced today:

“Justin Trudeau’s political priorities announced today do nothing for the Canadians worried about the cost-of-living crisis that is pricing families out of homes and driving the cost of everyday essentials up, businesses crippled from supply chain constraints, and workers whose wages are stagnating.

“The reality is that from coast-to-coast-to-coast, life is getting more expensive for Canadians. Instead of presenting an economic plan for families, seniors and small businesses that have been left behind, Justin Trudeau’s approach means more ballooning deficits leading to higher taxes, at a time when Canadians are barely making ends meet.

“Rather than focus on employment and investment to kick start our recovery and strengthen our economy, this Liberal government is focused on furthering its own ideological agenda.

“Canada’s Conservatives will be the voice for the millions of the Canadians left behind in Justin Trudeau’s economy.”
