2019年9月29日 安大略省多伦多,加拿大自由党公布了为建设更强中产阶层而设计的政策纲领,我们将会 为全体加拿大民众建设一个更好的加拿大。 加拿大自由党领袖,贾斯廷-特鲁多表示:“中产阶层加拿大人正在为我们的经济做出巨大的贡 献。当我们决定为中产阶层,与那些正在努力工作,加入中产阶层的人们给予更多帮助时,我们 实际上是在建设一个更强健的经济。我们正在建设一个生活更加可以负担,更加公平的加拿大。 我们正在建设一个更加清洁,并对我们的子孙后代而言更加美好的加拿大。我们将会选择向前。” 在继续向前的道路上,我们将会以过去的成就作为基础,继续向家庭、劳工、以及社区做出切实的 投资计划。在我们的计划当中,我们将会为中产阶层减免税负,不再给予百万富翁税务便利。我 们将会取缔突击步枪,并加强对枪支的管制。同时,我们将会继续推进显著可见的计划,保护我 们的环境,并且抗击气候变化。 ”保守党政客们想要让我们回到哈珀时期,那个时候,他们为百万富翁减税,弱化枪支管理,并且 让污染变得免费。“特鲁多先生表示:”安德鲁-谢尔并不认为能够在抗击气候变化的同时情况下发 展经济。他的想法是错误的。我们的计划将会创造工作机会,减少污染,并且为我们的子孙后代 留下一个更加清洁的星球。“ 再次当选的自由党政府将会确保加拿大家庭: ● 通过将手机账单计划减少25%,为每个家庭每年节省1000加元; ● 为除去已经富裕的人们减税,为每个家庭平均每年节省近600加元; ● 帮助老年人提升老年保障金(OAS)福利,当他们年龄达到75岁时,每年可以多获得至少 729加元; ● 为首次购房的家庭节省上百加元的贷款还款额度; ● 提供价值高达$40,000的免息贷款,并且继续数百元的鼓励资金,帮助想要重新修缮房屋 ,节约开支的屋主。 ● 降低课前课后托儿服务价格,为家庭每年省下800加元; ● 通过增加加拿大儿童福利金(CCB),,给予家庭多达$1,000加元的资金,帮助养育0-1岁新 生儿的家庭应对育儿成本;同时 ● 免除产假与育婴假福利的税收,让家长们获得更多的资金,并且提供15周的带薪休假。 继续向前:我们将会为下一代加拿大领军人物提供切实的帮助。学费、房租、书籍、以及生活用 品的成本——同时包括省级保守党政府针对助学基金的削减——正在让学生群体面临巨大的压力 与焦虑。 再次当选的自由党政府将会帮助学生在减少经济负担的情况下,获得优质工作所需的必要技能。 ● 通过将加拿大学生基金(Canada Student Grants)增加40%,我们将会给予学生每年多 达$1,200元的资金,用于应对正在上涨的学费、书籍、以及房租成本;同时 ● 我们将会给予学生两年的免息时间,在这个期间,学生们将不需要偿还学生贷款的利息。 ● 我们将会修改学生贷款规则:在学生收入没有达到$35,000加元前,他们都不需要开始偿 还他们的贷款。在他们的收入低于这一水平时,他们的还款计划可以暂停;此外 ● 我们将会允许家长们免息暂停学生贷款偿还计划,直到他们最年轻的孩子年龄达到五岁。 这意味着他们在育儿成本最高的五年内,将会有更多的资金用于购买育婴产品,并为他们 的孩子提供托儿服务。 “如同道格-福特一样,安德鲁-谢尔会削减对大专及大学学生的支持。但是保守党政客们不能理解 ,我们对未来能够做出的最大投资,是教育与培训。“特鲁多先生表示:”我们不会再犯下同样的 错误。在教育、环境、与经济问题上,我们不会让无所作为,让民众落后。我们将会选择向前, 并且选择争先。” Platform: Forward: A Real Plan for the Middle Class 竞选大纲:为中产阶层提供切实的前进计划 Backgrounder: More money and flexibility for college and university students 背景资料:为大专与大学学生提供更多资金,以及更多的灵活性

LIBERALS MOVE FORWARD WITH A REAL PLAN FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS

September 29, 2019 Toronto, ON — Today, the Liberal Party of Canada unveiled its plan to move forward for a stronger middle class, and for a better Canada for all Canadians. “Middle class Canadians do the heavy lifting in our economy,” said the Leader of the Liberal Party, Justin Trudeau. “So when we choose to give more help to the middle class and the people working hard to join it, we are choosing a stronger economy. We are choosing a more affordable, more fair Canada. We are choosing a cleaner, better country for our kids and grandkids. We are choosing forward.” Forward: A Real Plan for the Middle Class builds on the progress we’ve made investing in families, workers, and communities. Under our plan, we will cut taxes for the middle class, without giving a break to millionaires. We will ban assault rifles and strengthen gun control. And we will continue to take bold action to protect our environment and fight climate change. “The Conservatives want to go back to the Harper years, where they give tax cuts to millionaires, loosen gun regulations, and make it free to pollute again,” said Mr. Trudeau. “Andrew Scheer doesn’t think it’s possible to grow the economy and fight climate change. He’s wrong. Our plan will create jobs, reduce pollution, and leave a healthier planet for our kids and grandkids.” When a Liberal government is re-elected, the average family in Canada will also: ● Save $1,000 a year on their family’s cell phone plans when we lower bills by 25 per cent; ● Save nearly $600 a year when we lower taxes for everyone but the already wealthy; ● See their aging parents’ Old Age Security go up by at least $729 when they turn 75; ● Save hundreds of dollars a month on mortgage payments on their first home; ● Get an interest-free loan of up to $40,000, and hundreds of dollars in incentives, if they want to retrofit their home and save more money on bills; ● Save $800 a year when we lower fees for before and after school child care; ● Get up to $1,000 more to help with the costs of raising a newborn when we boost the Canada Child Benefit for children under the age of one; and ● Get more money when we make maternity and parental benefits tax-free, and 15 weeks of paid leave if they adopt. Forward: A Real Plan for the Middle Class also gives real help to the next generation of Canadian leaders. The costs of tuition, rent, books, and groceries — along with cuts to student aid by provincial Conservative governments — are putting an immense amount of pressure and stress on students. A re-elected Liberal government will help more students prepare for good jobs while taking on less debt. ● We will give students up to $1,200 more, per year, by increasing Canada Student Grants by another 40 per cent, to help with the rising cost of tuition, books, and rent; and ● We will give students two years after graduation to get started before they need to begin paying off their student loans, interest free. ● We will change the rules so that, even after the two year grace period, graduates won’t have to start repaying their loans until they make at least $35,000, and can put their loans on hold if their income drops below this level; and ● We will allow parents to pause student loan repayments — with no interest — until their youngest child reaches the age of five. This means more money to help pay for things like baby products and child care in those important, and expensive, first years. “Like Doug Ford, Andrew Scheer will cut support for college and university students. But what the Conservatives fail to understand is that the greatest investment we can make in our future is in education and training,” said Mr. Trudeau. “We won’t make the same mistakes. On education. On the environment. On the economy. We will not fall back and fall behind. We will move forward, and choose to lead.” Platform: Forward: A Real Plan for the Middle Class Backgrounder: More money and flexibility for college and university students.
