Oakville.com: What are the platform issues that you are addressing?
Lisa Raitt: In North Oakville and the rest of Halton, we’ve discussed a lot of issues in our platform since the election campaign began – from protecting universal health care, to helping new Canadians succeed in the professions they’ve been trained for, to keeping Halton one of the safest communities in Canada.
But at people’s doors and in their homes, I’ve heard one thing consistently – literally thousands of times:
People are saying that Halton and Canada are definitely moving in the right direction. They want that to continue, and that’s why we’ve been seeing such a positive response to our Conservative platform.
Our platform is very focused on keeping Canada’s economy growing, keeping our strong jobs growth going, putting our national budget in surplus in 4 years, keeping taxes low, and providing affordable benefits to individuals, seniors, families and businesses. That’s what we stand for.
