New Ads: Standing up for middle class families

Montréal, QC – The Liberal Party of Canada is launching a significant new advertising campaign as the 2019 election approaches, highlighting how Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team are the only party that will stand up for middle class families.

Beginning today, new french-language national advertising featuring Justin Trudeau will air in heavy rotation on television across Québec and online across Canada, accompanied by a series of radio ads from Liberal MPs that will begin airing today in every part of Québec. New billboards are also being placed on major routes leading to the new Samuel-de-Champlain Bridge, as a reminder of how Liberals took a stand for middle class families and removed the tolls that the Conservatives had planned for it.

“Since 2015, Justin Trudeau and our Liberal team have stood up for middle class families,” said Pablo Rodriguez, Québec Campaign Co-Chair and M.P. for Honoré-Mercier. “After 10 years of Stephen Harper’s failed policies left the middle class falling behind, we’ve been making real progress – with one million new jobs created, more money for families, and real action to protect our environment. But there’s so much more to do, and we will never stop working hard to build a better future.”

Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team have a real plan to strengthen the middle class, grow the economy, and make life better for Canadian families. By introducing the Canada Child Benefit, lowering taxes for the middle class and raising them on the wealthiest 1 percent, putting a national price on pollution, and protecting middle class jobs with the new NAFTA, Justin Trudeau has been taking a stand for Canadians – but there’s so much more to do, and we can’t let the Conservatives take us back to the failed policies of Stephen Harper.

“This fall, Quebecers and all Canadians will have a clear choice to make,” added Diane Lebouthillier, Québec Campaign Co-Chair and M.P. for Gaspésie—Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine. “While Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team are focused on investing in the middle class, Andrew Scheer is focused on austerity and cutting vital services, just like Stephen Harper.”

Liberal campaigns across Canada have started 2019 strong, with a new by-election victory in Outremont, continued growth in grassroots fundraising, more than 200 nominated candidates, and the momentum of more than 1.5 million new conversations with Canadians and 1,000 volunteer engagement events over the past year – the party’s largest-ever volunteer mobilization outside of an election.
