STATEMENT ON RECORD JOB GROWTH
May 7, 2010
OTTAWA, ON -May 7, 2010- Today Greg Kerr, Member of Parliament for West Nova, made a statement in the House of Commons on record job growth in April.
“Mr. Speaker, statistics Canada reported this morning that a record 108,700 new jobs were created in April. This is the largest monthly job gain on record.
Today’s numbers show yet again that Canada’s Economic Action Plan is working and that low taxes fuel job creation and economic growth.
Mr. Speaker, since July of last year Canada has created some 285,000 new jobs. No wonder the latest edition of the influential magazine The Economist calls Canada a QUOTE “economic star.”
Mr. Speaker, because the global recovery remains fragile, jobs and growth remain our government’s top priority. Yet the Liberal leader’s top priority of hikes to job-killing business taxes, and a higher GST would halt the recovery in its tracks.
Today, Mr. Speaker, Canadians have 108,700 new reasons to reject the Liberal plan for tax hikes.
By focusing on the priorities of Canadians Mr. Speaker, we are getting the job done.”
