Steinbach, MB – Ted Falk, Member of Parliament for Provencher, issued the following statement on the new Liberal cabinet:
“Now more than ever, Canadians need a federal government focused on moving our country beyond COVID-19. Canadians have lost loved ones, lost jobs and businesses, missed out on educational opportunities, and are suffering a mental health crisis that has only been exacerbated by the pandemic and government-imposed restrictions.
“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needed to assemble a team that could mount a real response to these challenges and offer a serious plan to secure Canada’s economic future. Instead, Mr. Trudeau appointed a group of individuals more committed to their own ideological agendas than the needs of everyday Canadians.
“While Mr. Trudeau yet again chooses style over substance, I will continue to work alongside any and all Members of Parliament willing to advocate for policies that will help Canadian families get back on their feet and help our communities move forward together. As Canada’s Official Opposition, our Conservative team is committed to working hard every day to hold the Liberal government to account and get results for Canadians.”
