Timmins-James Bay Conservative Party Candidate – email@example.com
It’s time. It’s time for YOU to get ahead and it’s time for a seat in government. The federal government has money to invest and Timmins-James Bay needs its fair share. As a lifelong resident of the riding, I’m thrilled to be able to represent the Conservative Party of Canada in the 2019 federal election. It’s time for the residents of this great riding to have a seat on the government side of parliament. I need your help to make that happen. As one of my new supporters put it, today’s New Democratic Party is not the party that she grew up with or the one her father knew. Together, we can make a difference! Thank you, merci, megwetch!
A Vision For The Future
Your MP needs to deliver a vision for the riding and collaborate with government on behalf of the entire riding, not compete for soundbites and cheap insults on the six o’clock news.
Vision. Not division.
Action and Involvement
As a member of many local boards including the District Hospital board, and the local police commission, I’m committed to issues that matter. I also live in the riding.
The Conservative Party of Canada commitments to Indigenous Affairs
- The Conservative party supports the reconciliation process with Indigenous peoples.
- The Conservatives are focussed on bringing forward policies that make real and measurable improvements in the lives of Canada’s Indigenous peoples.
- Conservatives support effective investments in important areas, such as access to housing, health services and good quality drinking water. It is critical that government spending translates into meaningful results on the ground.
- The Trudeau Liberals have failed to take any steps to create sustainable, economic opportunities for Indigenous peoples.
- The Trudeau Liberals have created endless barriers to the economic development for Indigenous communities, including the cancelling of the Northern Gateway pipeline, the 5-year moratorium on off-shore oil and gas extraction in the Arctic, and the imposed Carbon tax.
- There can be no true and lasting reconciliation without economic reconciliation. The government must act to empower Indigenous communities to share in the wealth that Canada is so capable of creating.
- It is time we work together create a positive future for Indigenous youth, including increasing economic and education opportunities.
- Conservative Record
- It was Prime Minister Harper and the previous Conservative government that acknowledged the harmful effects of residential schools and delivered a formal apology in the House of Commons in 2008 to former students, their families, and communities for Canada’s role in the operation of the residential schools.
- In the words of PM Harper: “The Government of Canada built an educational system in which very young children were often forcibly removed from their homes and often taken far from their communities. Many were inadequately fed, clothed and housed. All were deprived of the care and nurturing of their parents, grandparents and communities. First Nations, Inuit and Métis languages and cultural practices were prohibited in these schools. Tragically, some of these children died while attending residential schools, and others never returned home.”
- The Conservative government also created the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as part of the 2007 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, which recognized that the Indian residential school system had a profoundly lasting and damaging impact on Aboriginal culture, heritage and language.
- The Commission’s report reflected the hard work and dedication to building public awareness about residential schools and fostering reconciliation, understanding and respect.
- The final report of the TRC helped to explain this dark chapter in Canadian history, and the Calls to Action addressed the legacy of the residential schools and advanced the process of reconciliation.
- Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls (MMIWG)
- Conservatives supported the National Inquiry, but called for it to bring the answers, closure and peace victims’ families desperately need.
- We are disappointed that the Trudeau Liberals let the MMIWG Inquiry become a quagmire of bureaucratic red tape, and refused to listen to the families of victims and Indigenous organizations who raised serious concerns throughout the process.
- The Commissioners requested a two-year extension of their original mandate but Justin Trudeau’s government decided to ignore this request in order to complete the inquiry before the election.
- This was a blatant attempt to put Liberal partisan interests ahead of the victims’ families.
