Huron-Bruce Tory MP Says Throne Speech Inclusive Of All Parties

Huron-Bruce | by Fadi Didi  

Ben lobb says he would have liked more reference to rural Canadians and economic struggles.

Huron-Bruce Conservative MP Ben Lobb says there was something to recognize all parties, in the throne speech preceding the 43rd sitting of Canada's parliament.

Governor General Julie Payette delivered the Liberal throne speech Thursday, promising to make life more affordable for Canadians, tackle climate change, and impose a ban on military-style firearms.

Lobb says mentions of national pharmacare were a pull from the federal New Democrats, while a tax break for middle class Canadians was a nod to the country's Conservatives.

As for how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will address these issue is another thing going forward, according to Lobb.

The Huron-Bruce MP tells Country 104.9 News he would have liked more reference to agriculture, and the current issues facing international trade.

Egg and poultry producers are expected to receive compensation from the government, following finalization of the CETA and CPTPP trade deals.

Canada, the United States, and Mexico, are also in the midst of ratifying the United States, Mexico, and Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Lobb says the economy is also top of mind, especially with the latest national unemployment numbers.

The Canadian jobless rate rose to 5.9 per cent in November, after the economy lost over 71 thousand positions.
