Budgets Don't Balance Themselves
This will be a NOT TO MISS event of the 2019 Conservative Party of Canada campaign in the GTA. With the Liberal government claiming that budgets will balance themselves, our speakers will discuss the economic, financial markets and political impact of bad fiscal policy. Implications of fiscal mismanagement go well beyond political LEFT-RIGHT debates. Canada has experienced significant negative implications in the economy and financial markets since 2015. Under a Liberal government, Canada is an UNDERPERFORM says portfolio managers and economists.
Each speaker will have 30 minutes to make their case followed by 30 minutes of Q&A. There will be ample networking opportunity.
5:30-6:30 Networking and hors d'oeuvres style dine-a-round upper lounge. Mix and mingle with speakers and other guests. Cash Bar.
6:30-8:30 Presentations and Q&A in main dinning room.
Hon. Pierre Poilievre, MP Finance Critic
Pierre Poilievre is a former Minister, a five-term Member of Parliament and the Conservative Shadow Minister of Finance. He champions the free market in which everyone gets ahead on merit, not government handouts, and people take ownership of and responsibility for their own destinies.
To make room for personal freedom and responsibility, he believes in limiting government. For example, Poilievre led the fight against crippling Liberal tax hikes on small businesses in the fall of 2017. This tax revolt forced the government to set aside some of its most damaging proposals. He is also fighting out-of-control deficit spending and tax increases. More recently, he has demanded the government reveal the true cost to families and businesses of its proposed carbon taxes. The government has so far redacted these costs, in what has become known as the “Carbon Tax Cover-Up”.
Poilievre also champions jobs for people with disabilities, introducing a bill that would allow workers on disability assistance to keep more in wages than they lose to clawbacks and taxes.
Poilievre lives in Eastern Ontario Village of Greely with his wife, Anaida.
