Budget Policy Announced

Today I announced the following six points will form the core of my budget policy: 1. Balanced budgets 2. Debt reduction 3. Ending the tax-on-tax 4. Reducing the political party donation tax credit 5. Identifying and reducing waste in government 6. Controlling public sector pay and benefits. Earlier in this campaign, I announced that I would institute a cap on government spending. That policy is designed to force government departments to prioritize their program spending. Once we have achieved the cap, my budgeting policies will be guided by these six points. My support for these policies is not for their own purposes but rather because of what they let us achieve. That is a future based on prosperity, founded on the values of hard work, generosity, freedom, tolerance, and equality of opportunity. Sound budget policies ensure that we can build a future where we can lead the kind of lives we want to lead. That is why these ideas will form the core of my government’s...

Kellie’s Campaign Launch Speech

KELLIE LEITCH LAUNCH REMARKS Thank you very much Ehab for that kind introduction. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am running to become your next Prime Minister of Canada. We are going to win this leadership race. We are going to defeat the Trudeau Liberals in 2019. Today I am going to tell you why Canadians are listening carefully to our campaign. This Liberal government is failing Canadians. Failing to protect our historic Canadian values. And they are failing Canadians with enormous new government spending that is growing the size of government and choking off private sector jobs. FRENCH Je me présente pour devenir la prochaine première ministre du Canada. Nous allons gagner cette course à la chefferie. Nous allons vaincre les libéraux de Trudeau en 2019. Aujourd’hui, je vais vous expliquer pourquoi les Canadiens sont si attentifs à notre campagne. Ce gouvernement libéral ne respecte pas les attentes des Canadiens. Il ne respecte pas nos valeurs canadiennes historiques. Et il ne respecte pas les Canadiens, avec ses énormes nouvelles dépenses gouvernementales qui alourdissent l’État et nuisent au secteur privé. END FRENCH Freedom. Prosperity. Canadian Identity. Many people say that they are proud Canadians. I would like to tell you what that means to me to be a proud Canadian. Whether you are born in Canada or you came to Canada, some time ago or even this week. It doesn’t matter when you came here or where you came from, doesn’t matter as much as where we are going as a country and as a Canadian people, together. The expectation we all have is that Canada is a place where people...

Kellie Leitch, the Member of Parliament for Simcoe – Grey and candidate for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, today announced that retired Senator and long-time Conservative Consiglio Di Nino has endorsed her for the leadership of the Conservative Party. Senator Di Nino has also accepted the position of National Chairman of her leadership campaign. “I am truly honoured and humbled to have Senator Di Nino’s endorsement and I’m excited that he has agreed to act as our campaign’s National Chairman,” said Kellie. “He has been a figurehead and leader in the Conservative Party since I was a young Tory and has long been a mentor of mine. His depth of experience, knowledge and counsel will be assets to our campaign. We have a long way to go in this leadership race and Senator Di Nino’s endorsement and leadership is building on our momentum as we continue the discussion about our Canadian values, what we stand for and why we are proud Canadians.” “It’s been a privilege to have known Kellie for more than two decades, during which her genuine commitment to public service has become her life focus. Kellie is a very capable woman, with a strong foundation of values and principles and an extraordinary capacity to get things done. Her knowledge of Canada and Canadians is deep and admirable. She is eminently qualified for the difficult and complex challenges needed by the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.” “Senator Di Nino is a fantastic addition to our growing, national team” said campaign co-chair Sander Grieve. “We are gaining support and traction across the...
