Andrew Scheer, the Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, announced that a new Conservative government will increase the Age Credit by $1,000.
This increase will be the third of its kind made by a Conservative government. In 2006, and again in 2009, Canada’s Conservatives increased the Age Tax Credit by $1,000.
Conservative Party said that Trudeau still hasn’t delivered on key promises for seniors he made in 2015.
According to the Conservative Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau is planning to raise taxes on Canadian seniors and he still hasn’t delivered on key promises he made to seniors during the 2015 election.
“Trudeau has raised taxes on seniors by hiking CPP premiums, cancelled tax relief for seniors that use public transportation, and will add 31 cents per litre to the price of gasoline. Trudeau is making promises to seniors now because he needs your vote. But just like in 2015 he will break his promises because he is not as advertised.”
The party also announced that a new Conservative government will conduct a review of all business subsidy programs in order to eliminate $1.5 billion in corporate handouts that don’t create jobs and support economic growth in Canada.
“Under Justin Trudeau, Canada’s wealthiest and most politically connected have received billions of dollars from Canadian taxpayers, who are working harder than ever and just not getting ahead,” Scheer said.
