“Canada lost 213,000 jobs in January. That’s fewer paychecks for families and even more credit card debt for households,” says the party in a statement.
The Conservative Party has issued an official statement from finance critic Pierre Poilievre & shadow minister for employment, workforce development, and disability inclusion Peter Kent, following the devastating Canadian jobs report:
“Canada lost 213,000 jobs in January. That’s fewer paychecks for families and even more credit card debt for households.
“The Liberals need to present a budget, their first in two years, that will get Canadians back to work and bring our economy roaring back to life. Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland have left Canada with the lowest vaccination rates, biggest deficit and among the highest jobless rate in the G7.
“Conservatives are focused on securing real jobs, in real industries, for all Canadians.
“Canada needs a worker-led recovery that will unleash the true economic potential of our 20-million-person workforce in order to recover from the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
“We will continue to work for those who have been left behind by Justin Trudeau and focus on creating prosperity and getting Canadians back to work.”
The statement comes as Conservative leader Erin O’Toole struggles to resonate with Canadians, but is benefitting from even more widespread disillusionment with the Trudeau government amid the absolute disaster of a vaccine rollout and now this mounting economic damage.
