O’Toole delivers economic attack of the Trudeau government as Parliament resumes

Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole made clear Wednesday his party will focus its political attack on the Trudeau government’s management of the economy, as he attempts to move past questions about his leadership and the party’s stance on vaccines. O’Toole took the rare step of allowing reporters into his caucus meeting on Wednesday to hear his address to fellow MPs. He accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of running an ideological government not focused on the real needs of Canadians. “At the kitchen tables in St. John’s, in the GTA and on Vancouver Island, family budgets are being stretched thin and sadly more and more Canadian families are relying on food banks,” he said. O’Toole said the government is not paying attention to economic issues like rising inflation and is not taking steps to make Canada more competitive. “Other countries are launching ambitious plans to unleash innovation, lower taxes and slash red tape to get their economies surging and we see nothing from Justin Trudeau,” he said. O’Toole also took aim at Trudeau for failing to denounce comments from environmentalist David Suzuki who recently said that “there are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”
