Ottawa, ON – Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, introduced his plan to protect gig economy workers by ensuring their access to employment insurance (EI) benefits. “Millions of Canadians don’t qualify for EI because they’re on contract or only have temporary work,” O’Toole said. “So when a crisis like COVID-19 hit, these workers had no safety net. A Conservative government will provide security to gig economy workers.” With Canada’s Recovery Plan, Canada’s Conservatives will require gig economy companies to make contributions equivalent to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and EI premiums into a new, portable Employee Savings Account every time they pay their workers. The money will grow tax-free and can be used to pay CPP premiums or accumulate savings that will be withdrawn by the worker when they need it. “The Canadian workplace has changed and the support Canada provides to workers must change as well,” said O’Toole. “Only Canada’s Conservatives have a plan to secure the future for Canadian workers.”August 26, 2021
Pierre Paul-Hus, Conservative Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness and Glen Motz Associate Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, issued the following statement today regarding Huawei and Canada’s 5G network:
“For months the Trudeau Liberals have ignored Canada’s security agencies and refused to take a position on Huawei and its possible participation in Canada’s 5G network for purely partisan political reasons. This has put Canada offside with our G7 allies and threatens the future of Five Eyes intelligence sharing.
“On the same day a major telecommunications company announced their intention to launch a 5G network in Canada later this year using Huawei Technologies, the United States charged Huawei with 16 counts, including ‘conspiracy to steal trade secrets’. This should concern all Canadians.
“Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government must take immediate action to protect our national security and Canadians’ privacy and ban Huawei from Canada’s 5G network.”February 13, 2020
