Recently the Liberal government hiked CPP payroll deductions and employer contributions during a cost of living crisis.
Today, Erin O’Toole called on Justin Trudeau to immediately reverse his CPP hike.
The cost-of-living crisis is only getting worse with inflation reaching a 30-year high.
Housing prices are up almost 27 per cent, sugar is up 20 per cent, beef and bacon are up 17 per cent, and carrots are up 13 per cent. Even coffee is up 10 per cent.
Instead of enabling Canadians to keep more of their hard-earned money, the Liberal government continues to take more of it away.
The last thing the government should be doing is adding to their costs.
Reversing this latest Liberal hike will put up to $700 back into families’ pockets this year.
Nearly 60 per cent of Canadians are struggling to afford food for their families, while only 34 per cent of Canadians believe their families will be better off in five years.
In fact, Canada has one of the lowest levels of economic optimism in the world, well below the global average.
Reversing this hike is one small way that Justin Trudeau can immediately provide support to families and businesses struggling with the cost of living.
