Conservative Government Achievements

We are in the midst of the 4th election in 7yrs.  Stephen Harper and the Conservatives have been in office for five years in a minority government.  Amazingly with all the obstruction and faux scandals coming from the opposition and the media they have been able to accomplish a remarkable amount on the behalf of Canadians.

Sandy from Cruxofthematter has done yeoman's work complying all of them.I thought I would remind you of  just a few that she has been able to put together for the rest click on the link above .   There are 70 in total.

  1. Accountability/Lobbying ActPassed July 2, 2008 (Link) 
  2. Age of Consent Legislation – Raised from 14 to 16 effective May 1, 2008 (Link)

  9. Child Tax Credit – $2000 for every child under eighteen (Link to all the family tax credits)
  10. Chinese Head Tax Apology– By the government on June 22, 2006 (Link) (Link)

There is much more that can be done especially if we elect a Conservative majority.  They released their five point platform yesterday "Here for Canada" and I encourage everyone to go and read it all.  You can find it here.
They have basically focused on five priorities.
The “Here for Canada” plan focuses on five key priorities:
  • Creating jobs through training, trade and low taxes.
  • Supporting families through our Family Tax Cut and more support for seniors and caregivers.
  • Eliminating the deficit by 2014-2015 by controlling spending and cutting waste.
  • Making our streets safe through new laws to protect children and the elderly.
  • Standing on guard for Canada by investing in the development of Canada’s North, cracking down on human smuggling and strengthening the Canadian Armed Forces.
It's a very good sound plan to move our country forward.  You know what to do if you want this plan implemented.
 That Conservative majority is achievable but we can't sit on our butts hoping for it to happen. We must get out there and work.  Volunteer, donate,etc. Yes I know we're ahead but don't take that for granted. There is much work to be done.  Remind voters of all the accomplishments that have been made and there can be much more done only if we elect a Conservative government. They others will spend us into oblivion and make our streets less safe.

So let's get to work!  More importantly on May 2 get out and vote!!!!
