Calgary MP Visits to Support Conservative Candidates


A western Canada Member of Parliament is showing support for the Conservative candidates running in Windsor and Essex County.

Calgary Nose-Hill MP Michelle Rempel attended a breakfast Thursday morning at Willistead Manor — hosted by the Windsor-Tecumseh Conservative Association — to throw her support behind Leo Demarce who is running in the riding. 

Rempel says it is time for this area to have a voice at the table pointing out that life is becoming less affordable for Canadians with higher taxes with nothing to show for it.

"Across the country, I think people are very tired of the coalition on the left raising taxes and making life less affordable for Canadians and certainly that's a message that we are trying to talk to Canadians about."

Rempel says life is becoming less affordable for Canadians. 

"The reality is that people in this riding have not had a voice at the table that has represented workers from the perspective of job creation, small business owners from the perspective of increasing opportunity instead of increasing taxes," she says.

Rempel adds, the outlook isn't looking good for the Canadian economy, saying "You look at long-term prospects in the Canadian economy, the amount of debt that we have incurred for what, like what has Windsor gotten out this government. I don't see a gold plated rocket ship to the moon for all the debt that we have created under a Trudeau government."

The other Conservative candidates, Chris Lewis in Essex and Henry Lau in Windsor-West also attended the breakfast. 

 Also running in Windsor-Tecumseh are incumbent NDP MP Cheryl Hardcastle, Dan Burr for the People's Party and Giovanni Abati for the green party.

The Liberals have yet to pick their candidate between Irek Kusmierczyk and Jeewan Gill.
