With less than a week left before election day, Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole touted a new childcare policy, while Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau pushed for climate change during a campaign stop on September 14.
O’Toole publicized his party’s childcare policy at a press conference in Russell, Ont., following the September 13 announcement that the Conservatives would replace childcare expense deductions with refundable tax credits.
The plan will allow parents to claim up to $8,000 in eligible annual expenses per child under the age of seven and up to $5,000 per child between the ages of seven and 15. Whereas the lowest-income families may have up to 75 percent of the cost. Covered, it will fall by at least 26 percent as income increases.
O’Toole said he would form a “federalism of partnership” when asked about his letter to Quebec Premier François Legault, which included an agreement to allow Quebec City and Ottawa to “achieve their respective objectives” on childcare. promised to negotiate.
Asked whether he has sent letters to other provinces with similar promises, O’Toole said the Conservatives’ plan aims to “work respectfully with all provinces” on childcare as well as health care.
Meanwhile, Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau hit out at O’Toole’s climate policy during a press conference in Richmond, B.C.
Trudeau said a Conservative government would revive Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway pipeline project, approved in 2014 by the former Conservative government under Stephen Harper, and later scrapped by the Liberal government in 2016.
Trudeau said the liberals’ environmental policy would fight climate change by putting a cap on oil and gas sector emissions, banning single-use plastics and increasing ocean safety.
