Press conference with MP Eve Adams. February 9, 2015.

I sought out a life of public service to deliver results for Canadians – families young and old, across all walks of life. For over a decade as an elected official, municipally and federally, I have delivered for my constituents the resources and infrastructure they need. For over a decade before that, I worked with elected officials at various levels of government to deliver the same for their constituents.

This work ethic and drive to bring investment to my city and to my neighbours is what made me a Parliamentary Secretary. It motivated the creation of the “Hire a Veteran” program which I championed as Parliamentary Secretary of Veterans Affairs and the work I did as Parliamentary Secretary for Health.

Over the last 3 years, I’ve worked for, and delivered millions of dollars for my community in Mississauga and for Canadians across the country. Investments supporting innovation for businesses; money supporting skills training for manufacturers, funds supporting fitness and healthy living for our children. That is a record of which I am proud.

I stand by that record going forward too.

I bring this drive to the Liberal Caucus. I will continue to deliver for my community and for all Canadians, and I hope you join me.

Eve Adams Questions Conservative Economic Priorities

Taxation

Ms. Eve Adams (Mississauga-Brampton South, Lib.):

Mr. Speaker, doubling the TFSA limit to $10,000 gives another expensive tax break to the rich. The middle class will pay for the tax break and when the program becomes completely unaffordable, the Minister of Finance says our future grandchildren can figure it out.

Only 7% of Canadians could contribute the TFSA limit in 2013 and the number has gotten smaller each year. Why would the Conservative government increase the TFSA limit at a cost of billions of dollars in the years ahead instead of trying to help the middle class and those working so hard to join it?

Statement on Pathways to Citizenship for Temporary Foreign Workers

Citizenship and Immigration

Ms. Eve Adams (Mississauga-Brampton South, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, throughout our history, Liberal governments in particular have welcomed immigrants from across the world who chose Canada as their home, immigrant who worked hard not only for their families but for our country.

In return for their help to build a stronger Canada, we have offered a pathway to citizenship and a chance to more fully join the communities they helped to create.

Across the GTA I have heard from many people in communities who are feeling abandoned as they wait to be deported after working so hard in Canada. I heard in particular from people in the Portuguese community, many of whom support families back home with their earnings, who will not be allowed to come back and see their extended families for at least four years.

Now they are back to square one. Many applied for permanent residency and should be allowed to stay through that process and have their work permits extended. These women and men came to Canada to provide a better life for their families. They worked hard and they deserve new pathways to citizenship. Instead, the Conservative government is turning away these nation builders.

Question Period – Economic Priorities

Question Period

Economy

Ms. Eve Adams (Mississauga–Brampton, Lib.):

Mr. Speaker, Canada’s economy shrank again. It has now shrunk in three of the last six months, ripping billions out of the Canadian economy with thousands of jobs lost.

While there are too many young adults without even the prospect of a job, the Minister of Finance has been in hiding and the budget is undelivered.

Will the Minister of Finance back away from implementing his already broken campaign promise that gives a $2 billion tax break to the rich and does absolutely nothing for most Canadians?

***

Ms. Eve Adams (Mississauga–Brampton, Lib.):

Mr. Speaker, who are they kidding? This income-splitting plan is not the plan any of them campaigned on. Where does that promise stand? The Conservatives also did not campaign on raising the pension age to 67.

At the doors I am hearing from students who cannot find work and parents who are taking on debt to help pay student bills. New documents show the Conservatives are cutting the youth employment strategy funding by more than $9 million, which is the equivalent of 3,000 summer jobs.

Why are the Conservatives making it even harder for young Canadians to find work?
