The Liberals Want You To Forget They Opposed The Canada Child Benefit

And now they’re planning to spread lies about the other parties.

With the Trudeau Liberals facing weak poll numbers, the desperate lies are heating up.

The latest is the effort to falsify the history of the popular Canada Child Benefit.

The Liberals are saying they will increase the Child Benefit in the summer, a transparent pre-election strategy.

But that’s not the really deceptive part.

The Liberals are now trying to claim that Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives will cut the Child Benefit, despite having zero evidence upon which to make that claim.

And it’s even more dubious considering the history of the Canada Child Benefit.

It was brought in by the Conservatives, and at the time, the Liberals attacked it and said the money would be ‘blown on beer and popcorn.’

That arrogant and dismissive attitude was widely seen as a factor in the Liberals 2006 election defeat.

The Liberals are now so desperate that they’re reduced to lying about a benefit they once opposed.

On Twitter, Andrew Scheer pushed back on the lies:

“Conservatives introduced the child benefit. Liberals opposed it, saying parents would blow the money on “beer and popcorn.” Happy the Liberals have flip-flopped. As Prime Minister, I will protect the child benefit without raising taxes on parents like the Liberals have. (1/2)”

“Any Liberal who says I will reduce the child benefit is spreading falsehoods. Conservatives created the child benefit. As Prime Minister, I will continue to protect it. (2/2)”

The Liberals have once again signalled that they will be all lies, all the time, and Canadians need to push back against the rampant deceptions.

The truth must prevail.
