Today, at Child Care Algoma’s Parent Drop-in Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, Member of Parliament, Terry Sheehan, and Finance Minister Bill Morneau highlighted key measures from the Government of Canada’s plan to help middle-class Canadians.
“The investments our Government has made through the Canada Child Benefit, the middle class tax cut and the recent Canada Pension Plan Enhancement will make a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children and their families, many of whom live right here in Sault Ste. Marie.
It was an honour to host Minister Morneau in our beautiful riding, and I’m glad we had the chance to visit with parents and kids who will benefit from these investments. Like him, I’m proud to be part of a government that makes the needs of middle class families and those working hard to join it —in Northern Ontario and right across the country—a priority and that helps provide them with the means to succeed and to accomplish their dreams. Our historic investments in programs, and infrastructure are critical to growing the economy,” stated Sheehan.
The Government’s plan puts people first in making smart, necessary investments to grow the economy today while positioning Canada as a leader of tomorrow. It recognizes that when you have an economy that works for the middle class, you have a country that works for everyone.
