BROCKVILLE – Conservative candidate, Michael Barrett launched his bid for re-election Sunday in Brockville.
“The number one thing I have been hearing at the doors is about affordability,” said Barrett. “Canadians are doing all the right things, they’re working hard and making smart decisions but yet they’re still struggling to get ahead.”
“Canadians deserve to have more of their hard-earned money in their pockets at the end of the month,” said Barrett. “That’s why Canada’s Conservatives will deliver the Universal Tax Cut to all Canadians, especially those in the lowest tax bracket. This could save an individual tax payer as much as $440 a year on their taxes; leaving more money to pay your bills, take your kids to hockey, or to save for their education.”
More than 185 local supporters came to the kick-off event, which included local MPP Hon. Steve Clark, retired Senator Hon. Bob Runcimen, Brockville Mayor Jason Baker, Elizabethtown- Kitley Mayor Brant Burrow, Edwardsburgh Cardinal Mayor Tory Deschamps, and Prescott Councilor Gauri Shankar.
Barrett thanked his supporters and volunteers for knocking on thousands of doors. Recalling his experience on the Justice Committee during the Liberals’ SNC-Lavalin scandal, Barrett shared how he fought to expose political interference in the judicial system by Justin Trudeau and key players in his office.
“It is disturbing that Justin Trudeau is actively blocking the RCMP from investigating possible obstruction of justice inside the Liberal government. The only real way now to hold Justin Trudeau accountable for his corruption is to defeat him on October 21 and elect a new Conservative government that will live within its means and put more money in your pocket so you can get ahead,” Barrett said.
