    (Ottawa, ON) – Now we know why Andrew Scheer is releasing his costing on the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend, it’s to bury $53 billion in cuts including $14 billion that are totally hidden.

    • $53 billion in cuts, including $18 billion in cancelled infrastructure projects
    • $14 billion in hidden cuts – “Other operating expenses reduction”

    Canadians have nothing to thank Andrew Scheer for this Thanksgiving.

    基建砍180亿,政府项目砍140亿,还有110亿支出减少未公开。
    The biggest spending cut proposed by the Conservatives, to make up for the resulting shortfall in tax revenues, is an $18-billion reduction in infrastructure spending over five years. The party said the change is triggered by a plan to take the existing 12-year allocation for infrastructure spending – worth $187-billion – and stretch it out over 15 years.
    The second largest cut in the platform is a plan to save $14-billion over five years on federal government operating expenses, which are not detailed. The party suggested possible measures could include freezing government staffing levels, shrinking work space for civil servants, and reducing the amount spent on consultants.

    Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer unveiled his party's platform today, promising Canadians tax cuts and credits to make life more affordable.

    Overall, Scheer is pledging that between today and 2024-25, a Conservative government would spend $49 billion on tax cuts and new programs, but would bring the budget back into balance by raising $69 billion over the same period through new revenue streams and cuts to existing programs and initiatives.

    Over the five years, that would mean a reduction in infrastructure spending of just over $18 billion.

    "From students to seniors and everyone in between — if you pay income tax, you will pay less under my government," Scheer is quoted as saying in the opening pages of the document.

    Scheer is the last federal leader of a major party to release his platform — and did so late on a Friday, on the day advance polling opened across the country. Scheer is also the only party leader to release his platform after the completion of the televised debates.

    The Conservative platform, however, was released fully costed by the Parliamentary Budget Officer. The Liberals released their platform, which included PBO costs for most major initiatives, on Sept. 29. The cost of the Liberals' proposed pharmacare program, for example, was one of the initiatives that was not costed.

    The NDP released its uncosted platform in the summer but released the costing of that platform earlier today. The Greens released their platform Sept 16. and followed that up by releasing a costing of most of their major initiatives later that month.

    Scheer's platform is promising an income tax cut and a series of tax credits that he said would make life more affordable. He also is planning to eliminate the federal carbon tax.

    "Justin Trudeau has spent our way out of having any type of flexibility if there is a downturn," Scheer said in Delta, B.C. earlier today.

    "Those massive deficits are weighing down our economy. It means more and more money has to be taken out of our economy ... or by paying higher interest payments on the debt, which is just going to banks and bondholders."

    Cutting spending, raising revenues
    According to the platform document, the Conservatives would do this by coming up with $6.463 billion in savings and new revenue streams in 2020-21, rising to $20.424 billion annually by the 2024-25 fiscal year. The steps the party would take to save money and boost revenues include:
    • Freezing hiring in the federal public service — maintaining jobs at 2020-21 levels until the budget is balanced — for a projected saving of $558 million by 2024-25.
    • Reducing operating expenses by cutting the use of consultants, clamping down on travel and hospitality expenses, tightening procurement tools and scaling back on government-owned real estate for a projected saving of $5 billion a year by 2024-25.
    • Earmarking less money for infrastructure by focusing on projects that are ready for construction for a projected saving of $6.726 billion a year by 2024-25.
    • Cutting corporate welfare payments by $1.5 billion annually.
    • Cancelling planned increases to international assistance to save $726 million annually by 2024-25.
    • Cutting foreign aid by 25 per cent for a saving of $1.5 billion annually.
    • Imposing a three per cent tax on tech giants that operate social media platforms, search engines or online marketplaces in Canada, bringing in an additional $610 million annually by 2024-25.
    • Allocating $750 million from other as-yet-unnamed government departments to set up a Tax Gap office that would crack down on tax evasion, to bring in a projected additional $3.37 billion a year by 2024-25.
    • Forcing tobacco companies to pay for anti-smoking campaigns to the tune of $58 million a year.
    • Withdrawing investments from the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank to save $9 million a year.
    • Repealing parts of the 2019 federal budget, such as subsidies to companies for the purchase of electric cars and eliminating the Canada Training Credit, for a projected saving of $362 million a year by 2024-25.
    "Its precisely because there are some signs of possible headwinds that we need to get back on track," Scheer said. "We need to turn the ship away from the rocky shoals and back out to clear waters, and that's exactly what this plan does."

    Scheer said that a Conservative government would "protect core services while we make government more efficient."

    On infrastructure, the Conservative leader said he would respect all agreements for projects currently under construction or planned for construction but going forward he would change the priority list.

    That pledge lines up with an earlier campaign promise to direct infrastructure spending toward projects to reduce commute times, such as the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project in Vancouver, B.C. and the Ontario Line Yonge Subway Extension in Toronto.

    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, speaking in Surrey B.C., described the Conservative platform as a return to the austerity seen under former prime minister Stephen Harper.

    "The Conservatives are proposing $53 billion worth of cuts. Deeper cuts than even Doug Ford is putting forward," Trudeau said. "That's why they waited until Friday night, of a long weekend, at the end of the election, before sharing with Canadians their plan to cut services."

    Kevin Page, the former parliamentary budget officer and CEO of the Institute of Fiscal Studies and Democracy, also took issue with the timing of the platform's release, saying that it should have been done before the debates and advance polling began.

    'Nefarious'
    "I'm a bit disappointed, particularly on this platform, less on the NDP because they just struggled to get a document out period," said Page. "They [the NDP] probably would have liked to have gotten it out a week ago. They just weren't ready.

    "But this looks more nefarious from the point of view that, 'We don't want to tell people till after the debates, till people start voting, that this is how we get back to balance.'"

    Page said that closing the tax gap is a worthwhile pursuit, one that all the federal parties are pursuing. He said it was a worthy goal but it hasn't been tried in Canada on the scale the Conservative are proposing.

    "They deficit-finance tax cuts right away, they start in the early years. And then they have these spending cuts ramping up in the outer years and one of your big components is infrastructure," said Page.

    "The one thing you don't do, in any plan, if you're saying this is about competitiveness and productivity when you are doing this, is go after infrastructure, because its so critical. That truly is an investment."

    Page said that economists point to infrastructure spending as a useful tool for boosting a nation's long-term productivity and growth rates.

    "Deficit financing tax cuts? That's consumption. If you give me a tax cut I will either spend it or I will just deal with my debt issues with that extra few hundred bucks a year. That provides a temporary boost to the economy, whereas infrastructure definitely is the longer term boost."

    Page also said that finding $5 billion in savings from operational expenses would be a challenge — that Harper tried to do it but couldn't find the savings. He also said that cutting $1.5 billion from the foreign aid budget was doable but it would give Canada a very different personality on the world stage.

    Scheer had previously said the Conservatives would reach a balanced budget within two years but then moved the goal post to five years. Under their plan, Conservatives would run a $23 billion deficit in 2020-2021 but reach a $667 million surplus after five years.

    The Liberals said the Conservatives’ platform amounted to tens of billions of dollars in needless and painful cuts.

    “We know that investing in Canadians … is actually the way to grow the economy, is the way to build resilience when the world is facing challenging times,” Liberal leader Justin Trudeau told reporters.

    Under the Conservative’s signature “universal tax cut,” Canadians making under $47,360 would see their tax rate drop gradually from 15 per cent to 13.75 per cent by 2023. This would result in a projected savings of $440 for an individual and $850 for a couple, according to the platform.

    The Conservatives would also repeal the Liberals’ carbon tax. The platform claims that if the Liberals are given another mandate, price of gas would increase 31.1 cents per litre.

    upload_2019-10-11_23-5-54.png

    The party said it would also introduce new tax credits. To encourage green home renovations, for instance, the party is proposing a two-year, 20 per cent refundable tax credit to help with renovations costing between $1,000 and $20,000.

    For new parents, a tax credit will be applied to income earned under EI maternity and EI parental benefits.

    To make up for revenue shortfalls, the Conservatives said they would control spending on infrastructure. While they would spend the same $187 billion as the Liberals on infrastructure, it would be spread out over 15 years instead of 12.

    Accusing the Liberals of allowing 40 per cent of its infrastructure funds to lapse unused in the first two years of its mandate, Scheer told reporters the Conservatives would ensure that all infrastructure projects that have been signed off on are carried out.

    “We’re going to see those through and we’re going to put in place a responsible plan that actually gets money out the door and shovels in the ground.”

    The Conservatives biggest measure for achieving a balanced budget would come in the form of $53 billion in cuts to government spending over five years. While maintaining full-time staffing levels, the Conservatives would control government operating expenses, such as on travel and procurement, and sell off government office space. Scheer said spending on “exorbitant” consultants fees would also be reined in.

    The Conservatives say $1.5 billion would be saved by reviewing all business subsidies, grants and contributions. Large multinational tech companies would be hit with a three per cent tax on revenues if they rake in more than $1 billion in global revenue and $50 million in Canada.

    Foreign aid would also be reduced by $1.5 billion and $700 million would be redirected to the poorest countries and to support for children in conflict zones.

    Trudeau has not committed to a timeline to a balanced budget — his platform projects $27.4 billion in red ink next year, dropping to $21 billion by the fourth year of a new mandate. During the 2015 election, Trudeau campaigned on a platform of running deficits in the near-term to boost the economy but said he would get to a balanced budget by the end of his mandate. That did not happen.

    The NDP’s Jagmeet Singh has similarly not committed to a balanced budget timeline, instead opting to focus on spending on renewable energy, health and education.

    With files from The Canadian Press

    Highlights of the Conservative Party platform.

    TAX CUTS / TAX CREDITS

    For Canadians making under $47,360, the tax rate will drop in phases from 15 per cent to 13.75 per cent by 2023. This would result in savings of $440 for an individual and $850 for a couple, according to the platform.

    The Conservatives will repeal the Liberals’ carbon tax. The platform claims that if the Liberals are given another mandate, price of gas would increase 31.1 cents per litre.

    GST will be removed on all home energy bills, which the party says will save an average household $107 per year.

    To encourage green home renovations, the party is proposing a two-year, 20 per cent refundable tax credit to help with renovations costing between $1,000 and $20,000. This will save a family up to $3,800, according to the platform.

    For new parents, a tax credit will be applied to income earned under EI maternity and EI parental benefits. The party says this will save the average family $4,000.


    FAMILIES

    To help send kids to university or college, the Conservatives will increase RESP contributions from 20 to 30 per cent of every dollar invested, up to $2,500 a year.

    For seniors, the age credit will be expanded by $1,000. Those with low to middle incomes will benefit the most, according to the plan.

    JOBS

    A meeting with premiers will be convened with an aim to reduce barriers to interprovincial trade.

    A task force will be formed with an aim to restore the competitiveness of Canada’s natural resources sector.

    Regulation of agriculture under the Canada Grain Act and Canadian Grain Commission will be modernized so it is aligned with modern agricultural practices and global markets.

    PUBLIC SAFETY

    To dissuade people from travelling overseas to engage in terrorism, the Conservatives are proposing to make it a crime to merely travel to a “terrorism hot spot” unless that person can prove they had a legitimate reason for going there.

    Parole eligibility for prisoners would be tied to whether they have attained job skills training and transition from prison would be supported by “meaningful rehabilitation programs.”

    Possession of a smuggled firearm would become a criminal offence with a mandatory sentence of five years in prison.

    HOW TO BALANCE BUDGET

    On infrastructure spending, the Conservatives say they will spend the same $187 billion amount as the Liberals but spread it out over 15 years instead of 12 and prioritize projects.

    The number of full-time staff in federal government will be maintained at current levels until the budget is balanced. There will be controls on government operating expenses, such as on travel and procurement, and reductions in government office space.

    The Conservatives say $1.5 billion would be saved by reviewing all business subsidies, grants and contributions. The review will be carried out by a commission led by a “distinguished Canadian” or “distinguished Canadians.” One item that they say they plan to scrap is a business subsidy for companies that invest in electric vehicles.

    Foreign aid will be reduced by $1.5 billion and $700 million will be redirected to the poorest countries and support for children in conflict zones.

    A three per cent tax will be applied on revenues of large technology companies (those that earn more than $1 billion worldwide and $50 million in Canada) that do not pay corporate taxes here.

    Balanced budget by 2024-25, saving $600 million per annum in debt service.
