OTTAWA – The Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today presented a plan to stand up for the middle class and those working hard to join it.
“Over the past two years I have met thousands of Canadians across the country. What I have heard is clear: under Stephen Harper, middle class Canadians have had to work harder just to make ends meet,” said Mr. Trudeau. “We have a plan for fairness. A Liberal government will give a tax cut to the middle class and provide middle class families with more money to raise their kids.”
The Liberal plan will make the tax system fairer and cut the middle class tax rate by seven percent. A Liberal government will also provide one bigger, fair, tax-free, monthly cheque for middle class and low-income families. Mr. Harper’s unfair system gives money to those who need it least. Liberals believe in a country that works for everyone. We will ask the wealthiest Canadians – those in the top one percent of incomes – to pay a little more so the middle class can pay less.
“When the middle class is strong, growing, and successful, so is Canada. Liberals will deliver tax cuts for the middle class in addition to one simple, monthly benefit for the families that need it most,” said Mr. Trudeau. “Liberals will continue presenting solutions to grow the economy. The plan we announced today will put more money in the pockets of the middle class and those working hard to join it.”
