Conservatives Working for Canadians

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 17, 2021

Barrhead AB: Despite the limited House of Commons sitting in March, Conservatives have been hard at work securing much needed wins for Canadians.

“As the Official Opposition, Conservatives are using every tool and every opportunity to advance policies and legislation that actually help Canadians as we re-open for business. I’m proud of what our team has accomplished and look forward to what we can do when we form government,” said Peace River – Westlock MP Arnold Viersen.

The Conservative accomplishments in Parliament for the week of March 8-12:

  • Persuaded the Liberals to finally bring forward legislation to close the Liberal-made loophole to hand vacationers $1000 to self-isolate when returning to Canada.
  • Secured time to pass the Canada-United Kingdom Free Trade agreement – getting more certainty for businesses who trade with the UK.
  • Passed a Conservative motion to secure support for workers in the hospitality, tourism, and charitable sectors in the next budget. Our motion also requires the Government to improve support programs for Small Businesses within 30 days to prevent a wave of bankruptcies and layoffs.
  • Passed a Conservative Bill to protect farmers and their livestock from trespassers.
  • Proposed the Environmental Restoration Incentive Act, this would create jobs in
    the west and help small oil and gas operations clean up oil wells.
  • Initiated a parliamentary investigation into attempts to cover-up sexual
    misconduct by the former Chief of Defence Staff and the threats made against
    the whistleblower.
  • Issued a summons for Marc and Craig Kielburger as part of our effort to get to
    the bottom of the WE charity scandal.
  • Voted for a national framework for Canadians living with diabetes.
