Today Prime Minister Stephen Harper unveiled his low-tax, balanced-budget plan to protect Canada’s fragile economy over the next four years. The platform sets out concrete plans to keep Canada’s budget balanced, to keep taxes low and lower them further, to open new markets for Canadian businesses and workers, to create more and better jobs, and to help more Canadians own their own homes.

“Our number one priority is protecting Canada’s economy,” Prime Minister Harper said. “Our low-tax, balanced budget plan will keep it moving forward and creating jobs over the next four years.”

The Conservative plan to protect our economy is focused on the following key priorities:

  • Keeping the federal budget balanced.
  • Lowering taxes on small businesses and workers.
  • Aiming to create another 1.3 million new, well-paying jobs by 2020.
  • Opening new markets for Canadian businesses and products through new trade agreements.
  • Aiming to add more than 700,000 new homeowners by 2020.
  • And providing new tax relief and benefits to families and seniors.

The global economy remains weak and in turmoil. Yet Canada has continued to fare relatively well.  We have led the G-7 in economic growth and job creation.  The Canadian economy has created more than 1.3 million net new jobs since the depths of the global economic recession.  And the vast majority of these jobs are in full-time positions in high-wage, private sector industries.

“While the Canadian economy is stronger than other countries’, it remains fragile and needs to be protected,” the Prime Minister said. “Keeping the budget balanced, lowering taxes, and making affordable, targeted investments is the right plan in the face of global economic turmoil.”

The Prime Minister observed that the Conservative Party’s platform is the only one that does not raise taxes on businesses and workers and has a clear, credible plan to keep the budget balanced each and every year.

“Canadians face a clear choice in this election,” he concluded. “The choice is between our low-tax, balanced budget plan to protect our economy and create new jobs, and the permanent deficits and higher taxes proposed by the Liberals and NDP that will ultimately harm our economy and put jobs at risk.”

  4. Harper could have stayed PM for another decade if he was just slightly less determined to change ALL the things that most Canadian citizens dont want changed . A small degree of compassion for science , education , the environment, the CBC , could easily be afforded by a corporate tax hike of as little as 1% , although 10% or more would be the smart way to go about balancing the budget . Not all his policies were bad , just the important ones .
