Ottawa, ON – Today, Conservative Candidate Pierre Paul-Hus commented on resurfaced documents that show Justin Trudeau’s Liberal candidate owes arrears to the Government of Quebec: “Justin Trudeau frequently criticizes Canadians, saying taxpayers need to pay their fair share of taxes. However, for the last two years, one of Justin Trudeau’s candidates has owed taxes to Revenu Québec, and has not been paying his fair share. “Even Trudeau’s candidate, Steven Guilbeault, has said himself that others should pay their ‘fair share.’ This is typical of the Trudeau Liberals – one set of rules for them, another set of rules for everyone else. “Trudeau’s candidate needs to come clean, and tell Canadians how much he owes in taxes, and pay his fair share, like all other Canadian families.”August 30, 2021
Toronto, ON – Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, announced a month-long GST holiday to provide pocketbook relief to Canadian families and support local retailers. “It’s getting harder and harder to afford the basics – food for the family, gas for the car, clothes for the kids,” said O’Toole. “And it will only get harder this fall. As Canadians look forward to getting to spend more time with their families, they also know that the holiday season is an expensive time of year.” With Canada’s Recovery Plan, Canada’s Conservatives will implement a month-long GST holiday this December. All purchases at retail stores will be tax-free for a month. This will put $1.5 billion back in Canadians’ pockets and will drive increased demand for products sold in store. Canadians will not need to fill out any onerous applications to qualify for this tax holiday. They will receive the five per cent discount directly on their bill at the checkout when they make their purchase. “It’s time to give families a break – while helping our small retailers get back on their feet,” said O’Toole. “The GST holiday is part of our detailed plan to lower prices and help families.” and help families.”August 18, 2021
