CPC Accomplishments (2024)

End of Session Update

Over the past five months, Conservatives have been fighting hard in Parliament to hold the coalition accountable and bring home common sense.  

After nine years of Justin Trudeau, Canadians are struggling. The Liberal-NDP government continues to pour fuel on the inflationary fire with $60 billion in new inflationary spending, meaning that inflation stayed higher, longer. 

Justin Trudeau’s economic vandalism has meant that Canadians are getting poorer as productivity and GDP per Capita both decline. 

Justin Trudeau and Jagmeet Singh continue to ignore the crime and chaos on our streets, letting dangerous, repeat, violent offenders out on bail and funding dangerous drugs with taxpayer dollars. 

Over the past few months, Conservatives have been fighting hard in Parliament to hold the coalition accountable and bring home common sense.  

We have:  

  • Highlighted the inflationary spending in the Liberal-NDP budget and demanded the coalition provide a path to balance to bring down inflation and interest rates sooner.  
  • Opposed Justin Trudeau’s agenda of economic vandalism at every opportunity.  
  • Exposed historic corruption at Trudeau’s Green Slush Fund, on the ArriveScam app, and in government contracts with their friends at McKinsey. 
  • Pushed the government to finally take action on rising carjackings, auto theft, and extortion. 
  • Forced Trudeau and Guilbeault to admit that their own report shows that the carbon tax is hurting Canadians. 
  • Opposed the inflationary carbon taxes that increase the cost of everything. 
  • Forced the Liberal government to take foreign interference seriously by finally setting up the ongoing public inquiry and forcing the government to act on a foreign influence registry.   
  • Called for an end to the government’s taxpayer-funded dangerous drugs regime, forcing them to end their project legalizing hard drugs in BC.  
  • Offered solutions to fix Canada’s housing crisis by firing the gatekeepers and forcing municipalities to build homes people can afford.  
  • Exposed wrongdoing at the Winnipeg Lab 
  • Opposed the latest Liberal censorship bill, the Online Harms Act.  

Introduced legislation that would: 

  • Remove the GST from the carbon tax. 
  • Increase sentences for car thieves, extortionists, those committing violent crimes in and around hospitals, those taking advantage of long response times in remote areas, and those importing drugs into Canada. 
  • Keep dangerous offenders and mass murderers in maximum security. 
  • Fire housing gatekeepers and force municipalities to build homes people can afford. 
  • Lower banking costs for Canadians. 
  • Protect access to natural health products.  
  • Repeal the No More Pipelines bill and replace it with a common sense solution that would reduce red tape and get projects built faster.  
  • Repeal Justin Trudeau’s unconstitutional plastics ban.  
  • Protect Canadians’ access to cash.
