Liberals committed to growing economy and strengthening the middle class
MONTREAL – In last night’s Globe and Mail Leaders’ Debate, Justin Trudeau presented the Liberal plan for investment that will strengthen the middle class and give all Canadians a real and fair chance to succeed.
“After ten years under Stephen Harper, people are struggling more and more to make ends meet. It’s time for change,” said Mr. Trudeau. “In this election, Mulcair says he agrees that Harper’s plan isn’t working – the difference is our plan will do something real about it. We have a clear, solid plan that will create good middle class jobs, grow the economy, and put more money in Canadians’ pockets.”
Liberals made a choice in this campaign – our choice is to invest in Canada. We have a three-point plan to move our country forward: create jobs with an historic investment in infrastructure; grow the middle class by cutting taxes for Canadians; and help those working hard to join the middle class by investing in essential social infrastructure, like affordable housing and child care, as well as putting more money in families’ pockets to help with the high cost of raising kids.
“Canada is a great country, and it deserves better leadership. We need a plan to invest in jobs, in roads, in transit, in clean water, in our middle class, and in people working hard to join it,” said Mr. Trudeau. “The Liberal plan will create jobs, strengthen our communities, and invest for the future. Canadians not only want a different government, they want – and deserve – a better government. Our plan will make a real, positive difference in the lives of all Canadians.”
