NDP REALITY CHECK: STEPHEN HARPER’S REAL ECONOMIC RECORD

While the Department of Finance continues to confirm that the NDP are the best fiscal managers – balancing budgets more often than any other party, evidence mounts for how under Harper’s economic plan, middle class families are working harder than ever but can’t get ahead.

  • GDP shrank again in May, the fifth month in a row 

  • More than 1.3 million Canadians are out of work  – 200,000 more than before the recession.

  • And meanwhile the Conservatives blew $2 billion on income splitting scheme that only benefits 15% of Canadians – driving the budget back into deficit
  • That’s why more and more Canadians are putting their trust in Tom Mulcair to bring change to Ottawa.
