Maguire to host 6 budget consultation meetings in Westman

I am inviting everyone to any of the six upcoming budget consultation meetings next week across Westman.

It will be an opportunity to discuss what local residents would like to see included in Budget 2018 and ensure the voice of Westman is heard loud and clear in Parliament.

My aim for the budget consultation meeting will be to hear directly from constituents on their priorities. I encourage everyone to come and share their views and ideas.

During the meeting, there will be an update on Canada’s finances and debt levels. As well, there will be a discussion on issues such as income and business taxes to support seniors and students. Private sector job creation and infrastructure for Westman will also be at the forefront of the meeting, which includes agriculture and international trade.

The budget consultation meeting will allow everyday Westman residents to come together and share their views on a wide range of issues.

I strongly believe the voice of Westman can be heard in Parliament.

For more information, people are encouraged to call my Parliamentary office at 613-995-9372 or email me directly at Larry.Maguire@parl.gc.ca

Time to End the Credit Union Calamity

Liberals are hiding costs of marijuana legalization

Earlier this summer I wrote the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) requesting a costing analysis for implementing the Liberal government’s legislation to legalize marijuana. I received a response from the PBO last month describing both a lack of transparency by the Liberal government and an intention to offload costs onto provinces to meet the deadline for legalization of July 1, 2018.
