Spending to protect Canadians in the pandemic was the right thing to do, and Conservatives supported it. But we can’t pass unsustainable debt on to future generations. Once the recovery starts, we will need to get spending under control.
Wind down emergency COVID support programs in a responsible way as Canadians are vaccinated and the economy re-opens.
Ensure that stimulus measures are targeted and time-limited to avoid creating a structural deficit.
Get the economy growing again after years of slow growth under the Liberals, so that we have the revenue to pay for the government services that Canadians rely on.
