About the Event
Please join us to hear what Pierry Poilievre has to say about the Outlook for Canadian Energy. Pierre Poilievre is a former Minister, a five-term Member of Parliament and the Conservative Shadow Minister of Finance. He champions the free market in which everyone gets ahead on merit, not government handouts, and people take ownership of and responsibility for their own destinies.
To make room for personal freedom and responsibility, he believes in limiting government. For example, Poilievre led the fight against crippling Liberal tax hikes on small businesses in the fall of 2017. This tax revolt forced the government to set aside some of its most damaging proposals. He is also fighting out-of-control deficit spending and tax increases. More recently, he has demanded the government reveal the true cost to families and businesses of its proposed carbon taxes. The government has so far redacted these costs, in what has become known as the “Carbon Tax Cover-Up”.
Poilievre also champions jobs for people with disabilities, introducing a bill that would allow workers on disability assistance to keep more in wages than they lose to clawbacks and taxes.
Poilievre lives in Eastern Ontario Village of Greely with his wife, Anaida, and their one-year-old daughter Valentina.
Pierre Poilievre had words of encouragement for the Energy industry in the new decade of the 2020s as he summarized…
“The Industry is already doing great things to protect the environment, to fight poverty, to improve the quality of life of people living in communities nearby and needs to tell those stories to the public. I encourage people who are in the Energy business to do a good job of explaining how beneficial our Energy sector has been to the country.”
This event is open to only CWiE members and will take place via Zoom. A calendar invite with Zoom information has been sent out to our membership.
