Langley, BC– Langley MP Mark Warawa is asking for residents of the federal riding of Langley to share their ideas and suggestions for this year’s federal budget.
“Our Conservative Government knows that the number one priority for Canadians remains the economy. The Economic Action Plan is keeping Canada on the right track, with over 1 million net new jobs since the end of the global recession – the best growth record among all G-7 countries,” said Warawa.
“We all know that Canada is faced with continued economic uncertainty from beyond our borders,” said Warawa. “That is why we want to hear from Canadians on how to better position Canada for further job creation and economic growth.”
The Langley MP announced that like past years, the federal government will be consulting with Canadians from across the country to find the best ways to strengthen Canada’s economy. That includes Langley, where MP Mark Warawa will be meeting with local business and community leaders to discuss priorities for Budget 2014.
“Consulting directly with Canadians is an integral part of the budget process,” Warawa added. “Many of the ideas brought forward in local pre-budget consultations have been included in the actual federal budget. We encourage everyone to participate.”
Budget 2014 will focus on job creation, promoting economic growth, and securing Canada’s long-term prosperity – all while returning to balanced budgets in 2015. To this end, the Government of Canada also welcomes your views on the following questions:
- 1. How can the federal government help Canadians with the costs of living and raising a family?
- 2. What can the government do to ensure Canadians are obtaining the skills and knowledge necessary for the jobs of tomorrow?
- 3. What should be done to further help businesses grow and encourage the hiring of new employees?
- 4. How can we better streamline regulations and further reduce unnecessary costs that may be holding businesses back?
- 5. How can the government continue to support a stable environment in which investment and trade flourish?
- 6. Given the Government’s goal to return to balance by 2015, are there any areas where the federal government can find additional savings and better respect taxpayers’ dollars?
- 7. Are there any other comments you would like to make regarding the Government’s Economic Action Plan?
