I demanded action on Alberta jobs in the House of Commons on June 1. The Conservative Party has a secure path to 1,000,000 jobs in Canada within one year, while the Liberals plan is to pick and choose winners and losers by sector and region. And we know Alberta won’t win that game.
Here is the transcript of my statement:
Mr. Greg McLean (Calgary Centre, CPC): Mr. Speaker, Alberta has been an engine of economic growth for our country, but since the Liberals came to power, Albertans have suffered from their failed economic experiments. We suffered through job losses when the Liberals decided to work against Canada's oil and gas industry. During the months of lockdowns and uncertainty, we have experienced the highest unemployment rates in the country.
Canadians need a dependable path out of this pandemic and we need a government that is serious about economic recovery.
Canada's Conservatives got Canada out of the last recession and we have a plan to recover the one million jobs lost during the pandemic. We are offering a clear alternative to the risk and uncertainty that is imagined by the Liberal government. The Conservative plan will safely secure our future and deliver economic growth and jobs for Canadian workers and their families. Our work will help those Canadians who have suffered the most during this pandemic and create opportunity in all sectors of the economy and in all parts of the country.
