East coast proud
When the Liberals won all 32 of the federal seats in Atlantic Canada, we were told that they would work closely with the region’s four Liberal premiers to deliver “real” results. However, after two years in office, it is clear that Conservatives are the only ones fighting for Atlantic Canada.
The Liberals failed to champion the Canadian energy sector, resulting in the cancellation of the Energy East Pipeline; failed to negotiate a new softwood lumber agreement, putting thousands of Canadian forestry workers’ jobs at risk; and were completely unable to tell the difference between legitimate tax cheats and hardworking mom-and-pop businesses just trying to make a living. Entrepreneurs in Atlantic Canada and their employees deserve better. This year is going to be critical for Canada, with NAFTA negotiations not showing progress and Donald Trump championing his protectionist policies. Given his track record, Canadians are rightly worried that Justin Trudeau is not capable of delivering for hardworking Canadian workers and business operators at the NAFTA negotiating table.
Atlantic Canadians can count on the Conservative Party to keep fighting for them and for projects and policies that will strengthen our economy. Hon. Rob Moore, Conservative shadow minister for Atlantic Canada
