Trudeau would save watersheds; O’Toole would protect puppies

On Monday, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh and Conservative leader Erin O’Toole campaigned in Ontario. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau and the leader of the Québécois bloc, Yves-François Blanchet, spent time in Quebec while Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada, visited Alberta.

The Liberal Party of Canada

A re-elected Liberal government would spend $ 1 billion over 10 years to restore Canada’s great lakes and river systems, Trudeau said.

From Granby, Que., About an hour east of Montreal, the liberal leader also promised to set up a Canadian water agency by next year to coordinate freshwater conservation initiatives.

“There has never been a government as ambitious as this on climate change,” Trudeau said.

The Conservative Party of Canada

A Conservative government would ban puppy mills, said O’Toole of King City, Ontario, north of Toronto. Puppy mills are commercial dog breeding facilities that are characterized by fast breeding and poor conditions.

The Conservative leader also said his party would: ban animal testing of cosmetics, ban the importation of animals that are inhumanly bred, and make it easier for women to leave abusive homes without abandoning their pets.

“The time has come to protect the well-being of our pets and the people who love them,” said O’Toole.

The New Democratic Party

The NDP pledges to increase penalties for tax evasion and close loopholes that make it possible, Singh said.

With better funding, the Canada Revenue Agency could hire enough staff to tackle tax fraud and generate $ 25 billion in revenue, he said from Ottawa.

“The super-rich have free travel. We want to put an end to that. “

The Québécois Block

The block has a plan to successfully integrate new Quebecers while ensuring they meet the province’s requirements, Blanchet said Monday.

His party would: entrust the provincial administration of immigration programs for the family class and immigration of temporary workers; legal knowledge of French as a prerequisite for residence status in Quebec; ensure that Canada’s multiculturalism laws no longer apply to Quebec; Ending State Practice of Denying Temporary Visas to Many Francophone Students; Encouraging newcomers to settle in the province by using measures such as tax credits; Eliminated federal delays in processing Quebec permanent applications; and computerized file management.

The Green Party of Canada

Green Leader Annamie Paul spent day 16 of the campaign in private meetings in Toronto.

The People’s Party of Canada

Bernier spent the day meeting and greeting the public in Cochrane and Airdrie, Alta, west and north of Calgary, respectively.
