MP KITCHEN RESPONDS TO THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE

Yet again, Justin Trudeau’s latest Speech from the Throne has failed to show any support for Western Canadians, especially those in rural communities. He claims that ‘no worker or region will be left behind,’ yet his government continues to do nothing to help those in the energy industry, especially those who work with coal. The Prime Minister should be championing these Canadian industries, not hindering them.

The Throne Speech also neglected to mention anything about farmers or agriculture, another massive oversight. Our farmers have faced a number of challenges lately, with many experiencing low crop yields and skyrocketing fertilizer costs. They deserve a government who will advocate for the best interests of their industry, something that Trudeau’s Liberals have failed to do time and again.

The Prime Minister’s blatant and continued disregard for Western Canadians is shameful and needs to end. We Conservatives are ready to get to work and hold the Liberals to account on behalf of the good people of Souris – Moose Mountain, and Saskatchewan as a whole.
