MP Cheryl Gallant Concerned UN Peacekeeping Mission Set For Failure

August 26, 2016

I spoke out today in response to the Liberal government announcement that it is prepared to risk the lives of 600 Canadian soldiers for the “selfie” Prime Minister’s vanity project to buy a seat on the United Nations Security Council.

As Official Opposition Critic for FedNor, I recently questioned announced Federal Tourism funding when family campgrounds are struggling to stay in business as a result of unfair taxation.

Trudeau Liberals Approve Ontario Hydro Sale

July 12, 2016

Consumers are the big losers with the decision by the Trudeau Liberals to rubber stamp the recent sale of Great Lakes Power Transmission to Ontario Hydro (now called Hydro One).

MP Gallant Defends Family Campgrounds

July 11, 2016

I am calling on the Trudeau Liberals to drop plans to go after private, family-run campgrounds as a source of revenue to pay for out-of-control spending. This is a direct assault on middle class Canadians. Jobs in rural Ontario are scarce. This is another attack on rural Canada. Referring to the little noticed headline in ...

Is Political Correctness Putting Canadians at Risk?

July 8, 2016

Is political correctness putting Canadians at risk? That question needs to be asked following ill-advised comments made by senior Trudeau advisors about the recent vote in Great Britain to leave the European Union (EU).
