The Integrity of our Immigration System

Opinion Editorial

Like many Canadians from across the country, Conservatives have questioned Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government’s ability to preserve the integrity of our immigration system.

When asked to explain their mistakes, Trudeau and his Liberals respond the way they always do when confronted with criticism: with more rhetoric and personal attacks.

In four years, the Liberals have not only undone the progress the previous Conservative government made to strengthen our immigration system, but they have also managed to undermine the long-standing consensus that immigration is indeed a positive thing for this country.

Justin Trudeau: Potentially Criminal Involvement?

Opinion Editorial

For the last month, Canadians have been deeply disturbed by reports of attempted political interference by Justin Trudeau and senior members of his staff – interference relating to the prosecution of Quebec construction company SNC-Lavalin on bribery and corruption charges. The inappropriate pressure by Trudeau and his senior staff was revealed by former Attorney General (AG), Jody Wilson-Raybould, in front of the Justice Committee on February 27th.

Since then, Justin Trudeau and his former Principal Advisor Gerry Butts, along with the head of the Public Service Michael Wernick, seem to be doing their best to mislead the public and misrepresent Ms.

Raising Taxes: a Liberal Go-to

Opinion Editorial

People in Niagara West are concerned about affordability, getting ahead, and a Liberal government that seems to be out of touch with their needs.

In Parliament, I frequently point to the importance of keeping taxes low and the negative impact of raising taxes on middle class families and small businesses.

These are more than just slogans. Conservatives are the defenders of the middle class, and in 2019 we will be fighting to stop Justin Trudeau from imposing massive tax hikes that will cost you a fortune.

What has it cost you so far since Trudeau and the Liberals got elected in 2015?

Opinion Editorial

Welcome to 2019! 

At this time of year most people often take the time to reflect on the past year and look to the year ahead with anticipation. As politicians, we do the same albeit from a specific viewpoint.

When looking back at 2018 there were quite a few significant happenings. Some of these brought us together as a nation, like the outstanding performance of our athletes at the winter Olympics in PyeongChang bringing home 29 medals or the sad story of the of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. There were definitely highs and lows and hopefully there were more of the latter.

The Global Compact for Migration: The binding non-binding agreement.

Opinion Editorial

Much has been said lately by politicians and the media about the United Nations Global Compact for Migration (GCM). So what is all the fuss about?   

The GCM is a United Nations led effort to set international standards and responsibilities around migration, Canada included. Justin Trudeau is expected to sign this agreement next week in Morocco.

Let’s get something out of the way from the get-go. This agreement is not binding, meaning the government doesn’t need to take any action – it’s a political declaration if you will.
