Yesterday marked 100 days since the new Cabinet was sworn in. And in that time, we’ve been focused on building a Canada where everyone has an equal chance to succeed. Check out this thread to see what we’ve been up to over the past few months: 👇
We cut taxes for the middle class. It was the first thing we did as a government in 2015, and it helped to lift more than 1 million Canadians out of poverty. And that’s exactly why we did it again in 2019.
We recently lifted a drinking water advisory that had been in place for 17 years, the 88th long-term advisory lifted since 2015. 149 short-term advisories have also been lifted. But our work will not be done until every person living on reserve has access to clean drinking water.
In December, we announced the Canada-Ontario Housing Benefit to help Ontarians with their housing costs. And across Canada, we’re investing in affordable housing to make sure everyone has a safe & affordable place to call home.
We’re building a cleaner tomorrow by supporting clean tech in Manitoba, making homes more energy efficient in Nova Scotia, protecting nature in PEI, and building electric vehicle charging stations across central and western Canada.
We negotiated a good deal with the US and Mexico - the new NAFTA will protect jobs, support workers, and create more opportunities for businesses across the country. We’re focused on ratifying this deal as quickly as possible so all Canadians can feel its benefits.
