Dear Markham-Unionville Resident,

The Liberal government continues its’ assault on working Canadians and the private sector. After a sustained SaveLocalBusiness.ca campaign lead by Andrew Scheer and our Conservative team they are backtracking on some, but not all of their proposed tax hikes.

Just a reminder of the taxes the Liberals are implementing or have attempted to in the past 2 years:

A 73% tax on small business investment income
Clawed back the disability tax credit for diabetics and placed their disability savings plan in limbo
Tax on health and dental benefits
Tax on employee discounts
A carbon tax making natural gas bills, hydro bills, gas prices and consumer goods more expensive
Froze the small business tax rate
Reduced the TFSA contribution by $4500 a year
Removed the tax exempt status for soldiers fighting overseas
Cut tax credits for: public transit, children’s fitness, children’s arts, education and textbooks, small business
Tax on Netflix

This is the Liberal record in office and where their instincts lie. There isn’t a tax this government doesn’t like. The Liberals have confirmed they are borrowing $20 billion a year to pay for their out-of-control spending. I have voted against every single one of these tax hikes and called on the government to change its’ course.

Shadow Minister for the Status of Women Rachel Harder, MP visited Markham. We attended service and met with congregants at St. Mary and St. Samuel the Confessor Coptic Orthodox Church. I held an open round table where community members discussed the Liberal’s tax hikes, matters of religious freedom and women’s issues.

TransCanada announced it is cancelling the Energy East Pipeline. The project would have created 15,000 middle class jobs and injected $55 billion into the Canadian economy. This decision was the result of the Liberal government’s mismanagement and failure to champion the Canadian energy sector. New regulations on Canadian energy projects have forced Canadian oil companies to comply with standards that are not required for foreign companies from Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Algeria.

October has been a busy month for families with Thanksgiving and Halloween festivities. It has also been a busy time in our community and in the House of Commons.

I held a round table on the Liberal’s tax changes and spoke to business owners at a tax clinic. I listened to every constituent member that attended and shared their concerns with the Minister of Finance. They are outraged at the double standards and ethical oversight in changing the tax code.

I attended Seniors Day events at the 16th International Seniors Festival. Seniors make up a majority of our population and they are the heart and soul of Markham.

I spoke to over 4000 people at a Garba event here in York Region. Happy Navaratri to everyone who celebrated this festival. I took part in Diwali celebrations at the Vedic Cultural Centre in Markham. Happy festival of lights to the Indian community!

I spoke at the ParentConnect’s first parenting expo. This organization promises to serve as a platform for expecting parents and new immigrants where they can access the resources and knowledge to be successful parents.

As always, should you require any kind of assistance please do not hesitate in reaching out to my office. If you have any feedback for Andrew Scheer and our Conservative team let me know!

Bob Saroya, MP
Markham-Unionville

亲爱的Markham-Unionville居民:

联邦自由党政府对加拿大人劳工阶层和私营部门的威胁仍在继续。在经过联邦保守党党魁谢尔和我们保守党团队领导的SaveLocalBusiness.ca系列努力之后,自由党不得不有所让步,税改严重影响正在减小。

给您提醒一下自由党在过去两年已经实施或正打算实施的税收:

*针对小企业投资收益73%税收
*取消糖尿病患者税务优惠,并将其残疾储蓄计划置于困境中
*健康和牙科津贴税
*员工折扣税
*对天然气征收碳税,以及水费,造成天然气价格和消费品价格上涨
*冻结小企业税率
* 免税户口TFSA每年供款减少4500美元
*撤销在海外打仗的士兵的免税资格
*削减税收抵免:公共交通,儿童健身,儿童艺术,教育和教科书,小企业
* 征税视频网站Netflix

这是自由党,不论是在办公室,还是他们所到之处本能谎言的纪录。 这是政府喜欢的税收。 自由党已经确认,他们要推高赤字到200亿元,来支付其失控的支出。 我对每一次这些增税政策都投下了反对票,因为这些税收迫使Markham-Unionville区居民的生活成本更加昂贵。

国会议员瑞切尔哈德(Rachael Harder), 影子内阁妇女地位部部长访问了Markham选区。 我们一起到教堂做礼拜,并在圣玛丽教堂和圣撒母耳教堂会见了教会成员。 同时,我举行了一个开放式圆桌会议,社区成员讨论了自由党的加税问题,宗教信仰自由以及妇女问题。

TransCanada宣布正在取消能源东线管道计划。该项目本来可以创造15,000个中产阶级就业岗位,并将向加拿大经济注入550亿美元。这一决定是由于自由党政府管理不善,未能捍卫加拿大能源业的结果。加拿大能源项目的新法规只能迫使加拿大石油公司遵守标准,而来自委内瑞拉,沙特阿拉伯和阿尔及利亚等外国公司却不在标准约束范围中。

10月份是一个忙碌的月份,家人庆祝感恩节和万圣节。同样,在我们的社区和国会也是一个忙碌的月份。

我举行了一个关于自由党税收变动的圆桌会议,并于业主对话,该会议座无虚席。既惊且怒的小企业主们感觉被自由党税改所欺骗。我听取了所有出席会议的成员的发言,并与财政部长分享了业主们的关切。他们对改变税法的双重标准和道德上的缺失感到愤慨。
我也参加了第十六届国际老年人节的老年人日活动。 老年人构成了我们人口的大部分,他们是Markham-Unionville区的心脏和灵魂。

我在约克地区的Garba活动中与4000多人交谈。 祝所有参加Navaratri节日的人快乐。 我还参加了在万锦的Vedic文化中心的排灯节庆祝活动。 祝全体印度社区快乐!

我也在ParentConnect的首届育儿博览会上发言。 这个组织承诺作为一个平台,为那些期望成为成功的父母和新移民能够获得资源和知识。

一如既往,如果您需要任何帮助,请随时联系我的办公室。 如果您对党魁谢尔和我们的保守党团队有任何反馈意见,请告诉我们!
