Standing up for Edmontonian and Canadian taxpayers – Budget debate on April 11, 2016

The Liberal government’s budget is a real disappointment for Canadians who were looking for real action to create jobs and long-term economic prosperity.

The Liberal budget has no plan for jobs, borrows $29.4 billion and raises taxes on hard-working Canadians.

Remembering the Battle of Vimy Ridge

April 9th commemorates the immense sacrifices made by Canadians during WWI at the Battle of Vimy Ridge.

The victory at Vimy Ridge marked the first time all four divisions of the Canadian Armed Forces fought together as a unit.

From their sacrifice a new and enduring Canadian identity was born.

While it was a remarkable victory, it came at the expense of thousands of lives.

Lest we forget.
