(Not necessarily comprehensive)

.- helping Cdns get ahead, not just get by 

– FCM very important

– less than 13% of infrastructure funds have gone out under Liberals

– infrastructure program not well managed

– unplanned and unmanaged deficits . Conservatives will get this fixed 

– will work with provinces AND municipalities

– invest in programs that actually are infrastructure

– will release soon the most comprehensive climate action / environment plan ever by an opposition party 

– conservatives will scrap carbon tax, which does not work, is autocratic and unjust, and costs more 

– stress test impacting affordability of housing 

– need more homes at lower prices

– reduce regulations on builders 

– opoid crisis must be addressed in two manifestations, health and public safety

– Canada must stop fentanyl imports from China

– crack down on gangs, gun laws that don’t target law abiding people. Will also focus on those with mental health issues.

– won’t put more laws on those who follow the laws 

– municipal lens will be taken into account into decisions

– decentralized decision making, not Ottawa knows best 

– will secure rural broadband .

– pm engaging in fear campaign 

– govt living within its means 

– runaway deficits not good for future decision-making

– many conservative candidates come from local govt

– local govt are vital partners to achieve Federal objectives
