MP Chris Warkentin labels latest federal budget as a disappointment

Member of Parliament for Grande Prairie-Mackenzie Chris Warkentin says the Federal budget failed to address what Canadians are concerned about and suffering from, and that is to see inflation put under control.

Warkentin says the budget is disappointing in so many ways, and adds it doesn’t come as a surprise.

“It failed to address our three key concerns. The government is poised to continue its tax-and-spend agenda, no matter the suffering for everyday Canadians.”

Warkentin says the inflation is at 40 years high and the people of Peace Country and across Canada have seen high taxation and doubled housing costs.

“That’s why we called for no new taxes, no new spending, and concrete measures to make Canada work for those who do the work.”

Warkentin says Canada is both the fastest-growing country and has the lowest number of housing units per capita, and the budget, released earlier this week, has nothing to address the urgent shortage of housing.

“The Liberals continue to miss opportunities to reduce red tape which would save time, money, and resources and reduce the regulatory burden on job creators to encourage investment, boost competitiveness, and get more Canadians back to work.” Says Warkentin

He says this will have a huge impact on future generations and they will be the ones to pay the consequences of the Federal government’s spending.
