  3. 3. INTRODUCTION GDP is key measurement for a country. Allot is said about GDP, especially by various government. The reality is government gets to much credit for booming economy and too much fault for recession. There are many factors drive GDP including taxation, business returns, consumer spending and government spending. 2/3 of economies tend to be driven by consumer spending. If you set policies that takes more money out peoples pocket book then that will lead to less consumer spending.

Trudeau then says opposition has nothing to say about economy - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVne2R7_zYw Here are things to considered when incomes to economic growth: Government does not create jobs in the private sector Private sector will invest based on return on investment Government role is set policy in areas like environment, taxation, trade, infrastructure, etc. Canada is moving to higher taxation and regulations East-West Pipeline canceled - https://www.bnn.ca/transcanada-ends-plans-for-energy-east-pipeline-1.876194 Canada is forcing Carbon Taxation - http://business.financialpost.com/commodities/energy/ottawas-carbon-tax-plan-to-shrink- economy-by-3-billion-hurt-loonie-in-2018-study.

  13. 13. LIBERALS / MIDDLE CLASS Source - https://www.liberal.ca/trudeau-unveils-liberal-platform-for-a-strong-middle- class/ Stephen Harper wants us to think that if it werent for him, our economy would fall apart. But Canadas economy doesnt depend on him. It depends on Canadians. It depends on the people I meet all across this country, every single day, said Mr. Trudeau. People want economic growth, good jobs, and more money in their pockets. They want to see their voices and values represented in Ottawa. Canadians want a better government, not just a different one. Its time for real change, and that is exactly what the Liberal plan provides. Liberal 2015 GDP by PM Wage Growth by Year
  14. 14. BLOG EMPLOYMENT ENTRY-LEVEL Did the Liberals not run on jobs for all? https://www.liberal.ca/realchange/opportunities-for-young-canadians/ After ten years under Stephen Harper, good-quality job opportunities for young Canadians are tougher nd tougher to find. Faced with high unemployment and underemployment, many young people have stopped looking for work altogether. This is hard for both young people and their families. Many parents are seeing their household debt rise and retirement savings dwindle as they struggle to support their grown children, who often return home. It is time to invest in young Canadians to help them get the work experience they will need to start their careers and contribute fully to our economy. Yet in 2016 the job quality index hit the worst level in decades. So, much for sunny ways and jobs, right? Issues with entry level jobs: - https://globalnews.ca/news/3914000/university-graduates-entry-level-jobs-canada/ In 2016, around one in two entry-level jobs did not require a minimum level of education (87,500 vacancies). A quarter of those gigs (48,400 vacancies) required a high school diploma and one in five (18,300 vacancies) required a college diploma. Only 14,000 entry-level jobs required a university degree. For comparison, over 250,000 Canadians graduated from university in 2010. - https://globalnews.ca/news/3914000/university-graduates-entry-level-jobs-canada/?utm_source=%40globalnews&utm_medium=Twitter Goods producing sector continue to lag other sectors in terms of job growth - https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/wages-and-employment-canada- policy-analysis - Goods producing sector would lead to engineering, quality control inspectors, supply chain management, inventory control, etc. Retail/wholesale sector lead a good chunk of the growth. Warehousing is going through automation - https://www.xconomy.com/boston/2017/11/20/locus-robotics-gets-25m-to-help-warehouse-owners-compete-with-amazon/ Job Quality Index - http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/wages-cibc-job-quality-1.3872389 The quality of employment in Canada is falling, according to a report from CIBC, with more low-paid jobs and those earning less than the average wage falling further behind. Both young people and Canadians over 55 are stuck in the low-wage job sector, primarily in-service jobs. But even among workers aged 25 to 54, 53 per cent had jobs that paid between 50 and 100 per cent of the average wage. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/12/03/stingy-canadian-employers-face-workforce-crisis-in-2018-report_a_23295535/ Canada's employers face a potential "workforce crisis" next year, as employees take advantage of a strong job market to leave their jobs in search of better pay and work conditions, a new report says. And it's due to employers' own reluctance to improve wages and hire permanent workers, according to the report from recruitment agency Hays Canada.
  15. 15. BLOG #1 MIDDLE CLASS http://www.torontosun.com/2017/10/11/canucks-believe-middle-class-dream-replaced-by-nightmare-poll Yet Trudeau said the article is wrong? https://globalnews.ca/news/3769136/taxes-middle-class-liberals/ I hate to tell PM Selfie that Trudeau is wrong. You cannot eliminate tax credits, income tax splitting, etc. and then expect taxes will go down, because they do not! https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/did-the-middle-class-cut-truly-help-canadians . FYI - The child tax benefit did not reduce poverty by 400,000. Trudeau so called middle class tax cut did not work - https://globalnews.ca/news/3769136/taxes-middle-class-liberals/. This is before carbon tax is implemented across Canada 2019. The carbon tax will hurt low to middle class more than the wealthy. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatoon/australian-carbon-tax-opponent-chris-berg-saskatchewan-1.3884765 Yet the PBO office said CPC cuts help low to middle class Canadians. Trudeau again got it wrong about Harper and his policies!!!! https://globalnews.ca/news/1356467/tax-cuts-since-2005-net-canadians-30b-pbo/. Wage growth - How about the fact your government has lost 75,000 mfg jobs? http://business.financialpost.com/opinion/75000-manufacturing-jobs-lost-thats-the-price-of-ontarios-electricity-disaster How come incomes have grown only 3.8% for 10 years? http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/statistics-canada-census-2016-income- hightlights-1.4287179 In 2014 is when Canada had the best middle class in the world - https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/top- business-stories/canadas-middle-class-now-worlds-richest-study- suggests/article18090490/?ref=http://www.theglobeandmail.com& People complain about corporations and yet they contribute to wealth distribution Harper did not just focus on tax cuts including corporate tax, but also set up innovation funds and sign trade deals to expand exports. https://www.slideshare.net/paulyoungcga/wealth-distribution-canada-corporate-tax-july-2017. Trudeau was elected and said he will focus on clean technology, right? https://www.liberal.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/A-new-plan-f
