Poilievre outlined his priorities for the next federal budget

Lowering taxes, removing the carbon tax and accelerating the creation of housing: the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, Pierre Poilievre, announced his three priorities for Sunday, March 28.

In a press conference on Sunday, Pierre Poilievre once again accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being responsible for the rising cost of living.

“This doesn’t make sense. […] it has widened the deficit, inflation and interest rates that have sent monthly mortgage payments down for ordinary Canadians,” he said. He argued that “Canadians can’t afford their housing, food and energy bills after eight years of Justin Trudeau.”

Poilievre says he wants to “make Canada a budget that works again for working people. On Friday, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland announced that she will table the next federal budget on Tuesday, March 28.

First, the leader of the Conservative Party is calling for strong paychecks to be brought home and taxes to be lowered. “We need a system that encourages the reward of work and hard work among our people,” he said.

To achieve this, Poilievre decided to “remove the waste of high-cost consultants”, the report of the American firm McKinsey was greatly solicited by the Trudeau government and rewarded in millions of dollars.

Even if the price of the macro is the same as the price, it is very different. “It makes coal gas and groceries more expensive,” he said.

Finally, the Conservative leader wants to create more housing by speeding up the process of building permits. He points the finger at the municipal administrations, whose creation according to him “bishoprics” slows down. “If municipal politicians stop construction, they get less money for infrastructure,” but if they speed it up, they get more, he argued.
