Question Period: Federal income tax and Quebec health transfers — December 9, 2019 Question Period: Federal income tax and Quebec health transfers — December 9, 2019Indians are less than $ 200 away from declaring bankruptcy. Will there be tax breaks for small businesses, reducing at the administrative burden and a plan to re-establish a balanced budget? The right honourable prime minister? Mr. speaker, we recognize that there are families who have suffered who have recently lost employment. That’S why we will continue to invest to health families. We recognize that, even if the economy is going well enough to add a million jobs over the last 4 years, it’s not the same situation for everyone. That’S why we’ve chosen to invest in families to invest in communities had to cut taxes. That was the first thing we did when we came to power in 2015 and it’s the first thing we’re doing now we’re going to cut taxes for Canadians who needed what time does prime minister promise to lower taxes he actually raise them for the majority of the Population have left Canadians with an economy that isn’t working for anyone. Businesses live in Canada and foreign direct investment has dropped by 56 %. Under this government. Government spending is out of control and we are on the edge of a recession. Minister asks and provide a false data, includes the plants to balance the budget, and so businesses will stay in Canada instead of the Canadian economy. On this side of the account very first thing we did in 2015 in the member office. That remembers it well: what’s the lower taxes for the middle class and raise them on the wealthiest 1 % today we’re doing exactly the same thing. We are lowering tax millions of Canadians who will lift tens of thousands of Canadians out of poverty and, let’s hundreds of thousands more no longer have to pay any income taxes, nothing in the economy and lowering taxes for people who need. It is the way to continue serving this great country into the future, only working to constrain kinetic Canada’s economy. This approach has left on the brink of a recession. Canada’S productivity and competitiveness continues to decline, wages have barely increased and the US economy has elf grown Canada. Three of the last four years, five of the G8 countries have lower unemployment rates than Canada and we lost 71000 jobs last month. When will this prime minister open his eyes, stop doubling down failed policies and just change course turn our community invest in a brighter future. For all, that is exactly what we’ve been doing this, what we will continue to do the next episode – that is the very first thing we’re doing today, is announcing that we will be lowering taxes, as promised for tens of millions of Canadians lifting 40,000 people out of Poverty making sure the hundreds of thousands of Canadian no longer have to pay any income taxes. This is help for Canadians at a time when they need it. Mr. speaker, Canadians are mindful of prison. Send a signal to the Chinese is unacceptable. Is unacceptable. Go to the two Canadians detained in China, unjustly Michael Kors and Michael forever are having spent a long time in detention in China, communities we think of their loved ones, but we also stay focused on them. As we have over the past year. We have continued to engage directly, including myself directly with President G to highlight how much it is important to bring these Canadians home will continue to work very hard. As I know, all Canadians will to send that clear message that those Canadians must be returned home disrupted. So I don’t want anybody to show for me to sidewall D, while the questions being asked for Wylie answer is coming forward. Canadians were fighting to Hong Kong in the Battle of Hong Kong during the second world war, millions of hongkongers have taken to the streets to protest, the erosion of their rights under the one country, two systems agreement with mainland China, value Liberty. We have 300,000 Canadian citizens in Hong Kong and we have spilled blood there as a nation. Will the Prime Minister stand in this house today to show his support for the civil liberties of Hong Kong? We have been very clear over the past month and our support for the people of Hong Kong in their defense of their human rights. We have been long-standing supporters of the country, two systems, principles and the rule of law. We’Ve been calling consistently for Addy escalation of violence and hostilities and asked the authorities to continue to it to engaged, to engage in a respectful of nonviolent distance of Hong Kong, including those 300 Canadian 300,000 Canadian, with whom we are very concerned. Imagine that I have a cousin called Nelson who works in the Factory. The Factory closes, mess of paid into EI and can have up to 50 weeks could have a good 50 weeks of benefits. If he accumulated enough and among us we have any Lee Amelia cell. She has cancer and she can have 15 weeks of leave, even though she paid into GI 26 weeks. It seems more fair, but would you really be fair is 50 weeks? Will the Prime Minister agree that in the situation there’s a serious issue about compassion and Equity? The right honorable, prime minister, we recognize that there are Canadians who suffer from serious illnesses and they’re worried about their ability to get the treatment they need and to ensure that their families are for them to increase GI benefits in cases of illness. We recognize that there are many families that suffer because of this, and we are going to work to increase as we promised sick leave benefits for UTI number for Benjamin Chamblee. Give him the time of that. We have, I’m sure, eventually will be able to do something, but I don’t know if it’s going to be enough. I clearly asked the Prime Minister if he agrees to consider 50 weeks. In all fairness, we can’t prove compassion by talking about 35 million people that we can prove our compassion by talking about a single person before the Prime Minister responds. I would like to remind the members. I know that there are many who are new, that we cannot refer to anybody who just a little reminder for everybody. We will continue the right honorable for a mister mister speaker. We are doing our work in the House of Commons to represent it, Canadians whom we wish to serve. We want to serve 35 million Canadians who all have their own challenges, please to meet people that we can better assess and bees have to learn from their stories and do everything everything meet this person and a helper with the troubles that she is going through. Now. Will not help 47 % of people, but we do have a plan that will help them and save our house your system, millions of dollars 44. Today I will not only lift tens of thousands of people out of poverty. It’Ll allow hundreds of thousands more to not have to pay income taxes at all. We know by lowering taxes for round 20 million Canadians. We will make an appreciable difference in the lives of many people. This is the focus that we’re taking this the commitment we made to Canadians during the election campaign. We certainly hope I just need support from all sides of the house, the honourable member for Burnaby South to health and gave 14 billion dollars to the wealthiest businesses, refuse to help out people you busy helping out his corporate friends.

He was prepared to act, but that didn’t happen, but he’s moving ahead with destructive policies like his no more pipelines Bill. Does the Prime Minister realize that the path that heat is on addressing the concerns of where are you? I would like to assure the numbers office? It and all Canadians that our government takes very seriously the economic challenges that the Canadian prairies are facing, and if I I would like to quote cream York NE, who said at lunch time today that she believed a strong Alberta is essential for throng, Canada and a Song Pikachu: we will achieve that.

Today we will be including additional investment and growth, perceptive, wonderful voices – and it just goes very well. They don’t realize how strong their voices are.
