In an exclusive interview with The Weekly Asian Connections Liberal candidate from the newly formed riding of Mississauga Malton Navdeep Bains shares

Q.What are the top three core areas that you would like to address if re-elected?

  1. A. The middle class is the backbone of our economy, and so we’re going to invest in our middle class through tax cuts and a progressive child benefit plan. The Canada Child Benefit plan will provide up to an additional $2,500 per year to an average family in Mississauga-Malton. A Liberal government will also cut the middle class income bracket by 7%.

Under Mr. Harper, family reunification processing times are up 70 percent for spouses and children and 500 percent for parents and grandparents. We will focus our attention on minimizing these times. Additionally, we will reverse Bill C-24.

Investing in infrastructure and creating jobs is a top priority for us. Infrastructure investment jobs and growth leading to more livable communities and a more competitive economy.

  1. If re-elected, how would your term would be different than your last term?
  1. If the Liberal Party earns a mandate to bring Canada back on track to economic prosperity and growth, we would start by cleaning the mess that Mr. Harper has created over the past decade. A mess that has resulted in an unprecedented debt of $158 billion, a record level of household debt and a trade deficit of $13 billion in 2015.

We will implement a Liberal plan that will strengthen the middle class, improve the environment, make our immigration process fairer, grow the economy by investing in infrastructure projects, create a transparent and open government, and renew partnerships with our foreign allies.

  1. Why should the voters of the riding cast their ballot in your favor?
  1. I served as the Member of Parliament for Mississauga—Brampton South from 2004 to 2011. During this time, I gained extensive experience as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister and as the Liberal Critic for Public Works and Government Services, the Treasury Board, International Trade, Natural Resources, and Small Business and Tourism. This experience, provides me with the tools to represent the people of this riding and be their voice in Ottawa.

I was most recently named to Mr. Trudeau’s economic team because of my business and academic background that enables me to develop good public policy.

 How will Canada be different if the Liberals form a government at Ottawa?

  1. We represent real change. We have a better leader, a better team, and a better plan.

The Liberal Party is the only federal party that has a comprehensive plan to bolster the economy, create jobs, save the environment, restore fairness to Canada’s middle class and aboriginal peoples, fix the immigration system, and create a more open and transparent government. After a decade of Stephen Harper, Canadians’ faith in government has never been lower. The reason is simple: Canadians do not trust their government, because it does not trust them. Under Stephen Harper, the government has grown secretive and closed-off from Canadians. All of that would change. A Liberal government would be based on principles of inclusiveness, not divisiveness, openness not secrecy. We would restore the trust that Canadians have lost in their government institutions. Our government will be more transparent and fair. Liberals will shed new light on the government and ensure that it is focused on the people it is meant to serve: Canadians.
