Barrhead, AB – Arnold Viersen, Member of Parliament for Peace River – Westlock, released a statement regarding today’s Speech from the Throne. “This Speech from the Throne is the third from this Liberal government in three years,” said MP Viersen. “With nothing new, it will only increase current problems.” “Canadians are already facing the consequences of record levels of inflation due to Prime Minister Trudeau’s spending and economic policies,” said MP Viersen. “With Canada’s inflation rate at its highest point since 2003, families across Peace River – Westlock are struggling to keep up with rising costs of food, fuel, and home heating. “Today’s speech makes it clear that the Liberals’ plan is to ‘go further, faster’.
Further, faster to drive up federal debt and inflation
Further, faster to phase out the oil fields
Further, faster to censor Canadians & impose Liberal values, and
Further, faster to increase division amongst Canadians.
“Canadians want a government that will take bold steps to rein in spending, fight inflation and stimulate economic recovery. The world is looking for Canadian energy and President Biden is desperate to reduce gas prices. Trudeau could have taken this opportunity push for Keystone XL – but he didn’t. "Canada’s Conservatives believe in policies that will allow stand up for our world-leading oil and gas sector and the Canadian economy to grow with paychecks, not debt."
