Spending more, faster

As if Justin Trudeau wasn’t already spending Canadian taxpayers’ hard-earned money fast enough, he now wants parliament to give him a $7 billion cheque to spend as he sees fit. 

Worse still, the Liberals are changing the rules so that he only has to tell Canadians after the next election where that money went. 

The Parliamentary Budget Officer recently confirmed that this new Liberal slush fund will allow Justin Trudeau to “spend money more quickly” and forces parliamentarians to “accept incomplete information and weaker spending controls.” 

It’s completely unacceptable that Justin Trudeau is raising taxes on middle class Canadians to pay for his out-of-control spending, while also refusing to be accountable to them.  Canadians must be able to scrutinize government spending and decide for themselves if the government is managing the public purse responsibly. 

British Columbians can count on Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives to continue to fight for lower taxes and greater government transparency.
