Hayes Talks Federal Budget On a Local Level


On January 21, 2015, MP Bryan Hayes gathered a group of local stakeholders at his constituency office in Sault Ste. Marie in a roundtable forum to share ideas and suggestions for the 2015 federal budget.

The participating stakeholders were: Michael Marinovich – KPMG, Jason Collins – RBB Innovations, Robert Cohen – Soo Foundry, Geoff Meakin – Meakin Forestry, Don Mitchell – Economic Development Corporation Board Chair/Algoma Insurance, Franco Pastore – EPOH, Randy Tallon -NOA Consultant SSM/Algoma, Tom Vair – Innovation Centre E.D.
Pre-budget consultations play an important role in helping to identify key priorities for the next phase of Canada’s Economic Action Plan. Some of the topics discussed consisted of, but were not limited to, The Ring of Fire, FedNor programming, the need for education and training programs, immigration and capital infrastructure projects. The stakeholders who participated in the roundtable discussion unanimously agreed that the topics discussed are imperative for a stronger economic climate in Northern Ontario.

“Consulting directly with Canadians is an integral part of the budget process,” said MP Hayes. “Many of the ideas brought forward in local pre-budget meetings have been included in the actual federal budget. We encourage everyone to participate.”

Budget 2015 will continue to build on the positive momentum of the Conservative Government’s strong record of job creation, economic growth, and fiscal responsibility.

  1. This is the Heart of issue with The Conservative government of Stephan Harper and our local MP Bryan Hayes.

    Here is some of the issues that this government and Liberal government created with Veterans

    1)$700,000 spend on fighting a court case against 7 Afghan War Veterans
    2)VAC Offices closed,Staff terminated,programs slashed due to lack of funds
    3)$1.13 BILLION of VAC funding returned to Treasury Board
    4) VA Claims denied to CF and RCMP Veterans
    5)The New Veterans Charter which Liberals, NDP, Conservatives all voted for.

    Also to be noted is those CF and RCMP Veterans who served who do not get any assistance of any form from the VAC.They are entitled due to this oath given in 1917.Which this currant government refuses to follow.

    All veterans wrote a blank cheque made payable to the Government of Canada for an amount up to including life.

    This is the reason for those who support Canada’s Veterans not to vote for Stephan Harper and MP Bryan Hayes this Election.

    This is the solemn Oath given to all Veterans and is in effect to this day .. We cannot let this present government deny what Veterans have earned .

    In April 1917 prior to the battle of Vimy Ridge Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden said
    “You can go into this battle assured of this, and as head of this government I give you this assurance: That you need not fear that the government and country will fail to show just appreciation of your service to the country and Empire and what you’re about to do and what you have already done. The government and country will consider it their FIRST DUTY to see that the proper appreciation of your efforts and your courage is brought to the notice of people at home… That no man whether he goes back or whether he remains in Flanders will have just cause two reproached the government for having broken faith with the man who one and the man who died
