Since September 2022 Justin Trudeau has been using tax dollars to buy votes. The latest campaign of buying votes is Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland’s Grocery Rebate.
The Grocery rebate was purposely attached to Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland’s budget. Its is a blatant attempt at vote buying. A federal election hasn’t been called, yet, however the House of Commons (your elected representatives) will have to vote to either pass or defeat the March 28, 2023 tabled budget. A budget is automatically a confidence measure that would force an election if defeated.
The Grocery Rebate is one of many vote buying measures Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland are using to stay in office. A cheque is in the mail if your elected representatives passes the “Vote for U$” budget. If the House of Commons doesn’t pass their budget voters don’t get the money.
In the meantime, since September 2022 Justin Trudeau has been using tax dollars to buy votes. Over $4.5 billion is being taken to fund Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland’s vote buying campaign.
Justin Trudeau initiated his vote buying campaign September 13, 2022 by announcing that he was going to put “more money back in the pockets of the middle class”. The Canadian government defines “middle class” as a four-person family earning $45,000–130,000.
Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland’s $4.5 billion vote buying measures include:
- Double the Goods and Services Tax Credit (GSTC) for six months
- Dental Benefit to children under 12 who do not have access to dental insurance
- The one-time top-up to the Canada Housing Benefit
- A 10 per cent increase to the Old Age Security (OAS) pension for seniors 75 years and older.
- doubling the Canada Student Grant amount until July 2023 and by waiving interest on Canada Student Loans through to March 2023.
All have one purpose. Help Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland stay in office and/or get re-elected.
