Bill

C-44: An Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on March 22, 2017 and other measures

Report.

Vote

Yea.

Rationale

Budget 2017 is the next step in the Government’s ambitious plan to make smart investments that will create jobs, grow our economy, and provide more opportunities for the middle class and those working hard to join it. Budget 2017 puts Canada’s skilled, talented, and creative people at the heart of a more innovative future economy – one that will create middle class jobs today and tomorrow. Following in the footsteps of Budget 2016, Budget 2017 offers immediate help to those who need it most and helps ensure that everyone has a real and fair chance of success.

Similarly to my vote on C-44 at Second Reading, I strongly believe in the vision Budget 2017 puts forward. It will strengthen the Canadian economy over the long-term, and makes key investments to make us a dynamic competitor on the world stage.

Result

Passed.
