It is a privilege, and I consider it my top priority, to represent your interests and values in the House of Commons. Since first being elected to serve the riding in 2006, I have worked on behalf of all constituents for the betterment of our communities. I take pride in the working relationships that I have developed and the accomplishments that we have achieved together.
As your Member of Parliament, and Official Opposition critic for Public Safety, I continue to hold the Liberal government to account on issues from lack of job creation to higher taxes and out-of-control spending, and on national security issues.
After promising only a $10 billion deficit, the Liberals have already racked up more than $30 billion in debt and it`s projected to keep getting worse.
I`ve heard from you. While the Liberals claim that they`ve reduced taxes, they keep piling new taxes onto families in Parry Sound-Muskoka and across Canada.
Alongside my Conservative colleagues, I will keep fighting for the hardworking people of Parry Sound-Muskoka in the face of a new Liberal carbon tax. We need politicians who understand how hard it is to make ends meet.
As election promise after promise is broken and debt rises to levels far beyond what Canadians expected, I and my fellow Conservatives will continue to be the voice of the taxpayer. We will call out the Liberals for their reckless spending, ethical breaches and lack of a jobs plan.
Tony Clement, M.P.
