Ideological agenda parroted in Throne Speech: MP Morrison

Governor General Mary May Simon Nov. 23 presented Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s political priorities in the Speech from the Throne.

The speech focused on economic recovery from COVID-19, reconciliation, climate change, safer communities, diversity and inclusion.

In short, said Kootenay-Columbia MP Rob Morrison (Conservative Party), the Throne Speech was a rehashing of the Liberals’ election promises.

“Justin Trudeau’s political priorities announced today do nothing for Canadians worried about the cost- of-living crisis pricing families out of homes and driving the cost of everyday essentials up, businesses crippled from supply chain constraints, and workers whose wages are stagnating.

“The reality is that from coast-to-coast, life is getting more expensive for Canadians and that is evident here in Kootenay-Columbia,” Morrison stated.

“Instead of presenting an economic plan for families, seniors and small businesses that have been left behind, Justin Trudeau’s approach means more of the same: more deficits leading to higher taxes, at a time when Canadians are barely making ends meet.

“Rather than focus on employment and investment to kick-start our recovery and strengthen our economy, this Liberal government is focused on furthering its own ideological agenda.

“Canada’s Conservatives are the voice of small business owners, of energy, auto and steelworkers, of farming families, and of parents and seniors. And we will be the voice for the millions of Canadians left behind in Justin Trudeau’s economy,” Morrison said.
