OTTAWA – September 28, 2023
WARKENTIN IN OTTAWA AS LIBERAL DUMPSTER FIRE BURNS
Chris Warkentin, Member of Parliament for Grande Prairie-Mackenzie, spoke on the state of the government.
“Justin Trudeau and this Liberal government are completely off base and out of touch. Years of deficit-funded overspending caused inflation to skyrocket, which increased 43% over the last two months, up to 4%. The government’s disastrous financial mismanagement left the Bank of Canada no choice but to raise interest rates ten times in less than two years.”
Warkentin continued, “These rate increases hammer Canadian households. Because of interest rate increases, mortgage rates have doubled and Canadians fear losing their homes.”
“Daily essentials are no better, as the Liberals’ punish everyday people with their cruel carbon tax that they intend to increase even more. The carbon tax increases costs for every producer, manufacturer and shipper in this country, turning groceries and a tank of gas into unaffordable purchases.” Warkentin went on, “Crime is up, homelessness is on the rise, and so many of our streets no longer feel safe.”
“The Prime Minister’s usual tactics of division and distraction are no longer working. Instead, Justin Trudeau is straining our relationships with international allies and – worst of all – allowed a Nazi war veteran to be honoured in the House of Commons during Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s visit. More and more Canadians are seeing through the Prime Minister’s antics.
“As the dumpster fire burns in Ottawa, Trudeau hasn’t been showing up for work. This government and its leader are truly not worth the cost. Conservatives will continue holding the government to account, and push for common-sense solutions to fix all that Trudeau has broken.”
