Conservative economic plan isn’t working

For the fifth month in a row, the Canadian economy is shrinking under the Conservative government

The most recent Statistics Canada data confirms that the Conservatives have failed to build a balanced economy and that Stephen Harper’s plan just isn’t working – the 1.7% decline in the manufacturing sector is proof of this.

“The economy is suffering and Stephen Harper’s government is more concerned about wasting taxpayers’ money with an early election call,” said NDP Finance critic Nathan Cullen (Skeena—Bulkley Valley). “The Conservatives’ poor economic record is proof that their priorities aren’t in the right place.”

Only Tom Mulcair’s NDP is ready with a plan to get Canada on track. Mulcair will grow our economy and help Canadians get ahead with concrete plans to kick-start manufacturing, help small business create good jobs and partner with municipalities on transit and infrastructure.
