Ottawa, ON December 4, 2015 – Today, Kelly Block Member of Parliament for Carlton Trail-Eagle Creek expressed her concern with many of the Government’s priorities outlined in today’s Speech from the Throne.

“I was very disappointed to hear the Liberals plan for this upcoming Parliament,” said MP Block. “There was no mention of the importance of the private sector including agriculture, natural resources or manufacturing.”

She is also concerned by the Liberal Government’s plan to ramp up government spending which will drive Canada into deficit and their plan to raise taxes on the middle class.

“I was also very surprised to see how few details were in the Speech,” said MP Block. “Contained in the Mandate Letters to Ministers was a promise that more details would be articulated in the Speech from the Throne and we definitely saw that promise broken today.”
