SGRO ENDORSES LIBERAL PLAN TO DELIVER FAIRNESS TO THE MIDDLE-CLASS

OTTAWA – Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau presented a new plan to stand up for the middle-class and those working hard to join it. The Liberal plan will benefit the people of York West by ensuring fairness for those working to make ends meet on the lowest end of the income scale.

“I’ve spent 30 years in this community, and what I hear when I speak with my friends and neighbours is clear: after almost a decade of Conservative government, people are having to work longer and harder just to make ends meet,” said Hon. Judy Sgro, Member of Parliament for York West. “Liberals have a plan for fairness. We will give a tax cut to the middle-class and give more money to middle-class families to help them raise their children.”

The Liberal plan would replace four programs with one bigger, fair, tax-free monthly cheque for middle-class and low-income families. A Liberal government will also make the tax system fairer by cutting the middle-class tax bracket by 7%. Liberals believe in a country that works for everyone. Liberals will ask those who need help the least – those in Canada’s top 1% of incomes – to pay a little more so the middle-class can pay less.

“Canadians now have two fundamentally different choices. While the Conservatives offer tax breaks for the wealthiest Canadians, Liberals will deliver tax cuts for the middle-class, in addition to one simple, monthly benefit for the families that need it most,” said Sgro. “Liberals will continue presenting solutions for much-needed economic growth in regions all across Canada, including right here in our riding of York West. The plan announced today by Mr. Trudeau will put more money back in the pockets of the middle-class and those working hard to join it.”
