Harper fails middle class with new payouts to wealthiest few

FREDERICTON – Stephen Harper’s unfair system gives money to those who need it least, and only Justin Trudeau is offering new leadership and a new plan, said Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc today.

“Harper’s Conservatives are at photo ops across the country trumpeting a payout – using taxpayers’ own money – that unfairly benefits the wealthiest few. Canadians know Harper’s economic plan has failed the middle class, and they are working longer and harder just to make ends meet,” said Mr. LeBlanc. “After a decade of Harper, only Justin Trudeau is offering new leadership and a plan for real change.”

The Liberal plan will give families more money to help with the high costs of raising their kids. We will also provide more help to lower income Canadians. A Liberal government will create the Canada Child Benefit: one bigger, automatic, tax-free monthly cheque that gives up to $533 a month per child directly to Canadian families. With the Liberal plan, 9 out of 10 families will receive more in monthly child benefit payments than under Harper’s system.

“Justin Trudeau is the only leader focused on struggling middle class Canadians. A Liberal government will give a tax cut to the middle class and provide middle class families with more support,” said Mr. LeBlanc. “Our plan for real change will create economic growth and put more money in the pockets of those who need it most.”
