Year End with Erin O’Toole

December 21, 2021

With the new year just around the corner, the Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada joins us on The Blueprint to talk about the issues that have been ignored by Justin Trudeau’s government, the people who have been left behind, and how we can address them in the new year.

How the Liberals are Impacting the Border

December 14, 2021

ArriveCAN app has wrongly punished fully vaccinated Canadians and forced many of them into erroneous quarantine. While Canadians continue to bear the burden of Justin Trudeau’s pandemic mismanagement, the Liberal government refuses to learn from their mistakes and continues to enforce their haphazard patchwork of policies. To discuss the impact of the Liberals most recent policies at the border, we are joined by Raquel Dancho, Member of Parliament for Kildonan- St. Paul, Shadow Minister for Public Safety and Melissa Lantsman, Member of Parliament for Thornhill, Shadow Minister for Transport.

The Liberals’ Impact on Local Businesses

December 7, 2021

Canadians are counting on their government to kick start the economy and make living in Canada affordable. Instead, it is becoming evidently clear that Justin Trudeau’s government is poised in furthering their ideological agenda rather than understanding families who are being priced out of their homes and businesses crippled from supply chain constraints. To shed light on how the Trudeau Liberals are affecting your local businesses and employment, we are joined by Tracy Gray, Member of Parliament for Kelowna-Lake Country and Shadow Minister for Small Business Recovery and Growth, and Scott Aitchison, Member of Parliament for Parry Sound-Muskoka and Shadow Minister for Labour.

The Inflation Crisis

December 1, 2021

Justin Trudeau’s government continues to leave Canadians behind and refuses to take Canada’s economy seriously. The economic impact of the Liberal-NDP coalition signals what is to come and paints a grim reminder for those who are already struggling with the inflation crisis. While Conservatives returned to the House of Commons to focus on real issues facing Canadians including inflation and our economic shortage, Canada’s Prime Minister did not bother to show-up to vote on their hybrid parliament. To shed light on the latest news on Canada’s finances, we are joined by the Honourable Pierre Poilievre, Member of Parliament for Carleton and Shadow Minister for Finance and Middle Class Prosperity.

Removing PCR Testing through Land Borders

November 23, 2021

Justin Trudeau’s insistence on ignoring public health experts when developing common sense and coherent policies has done nothing to alleviate the impacts on Canada’s tourism and border communities. Canada’s Conservatives continue to call on the Liberal government to remove the current pre-departure PCR testing requirements for fully vaccinated travelers entering Canada through land borders and stand up for businesses who have been crippled by the Trudeau government policies. To shed light on this, we are joined by Richard Bragdon, Member of Parliament for Tobique—Mactaquac and Deputy Shadow Minister for Ethics and Accountable Government; and John Brassard, Member of Parliament Barrie-Innisfil and Shadow Minister for Ethics and Accountable Government.

What to Expect as Supply Chain Interruptions Continue to Worsen

November 17, 2021

As businesses suffer from major supply chain interruptions, the Liberal government continues to ignore this serious issue. With inflation at its highest in almost 20 years, and Canadians facing a rapidly increasing cost of living from gas prices to grocery bills, it is clear that Canadians deserve better than Justin Trudeau’s policy of higher taxes and smaller paycheques. To discuss how Canada’s major supply chain interruptions are affecting businesses and families, we are joined by Randy Hoback, Member of Parliament for Prince Albert and Shadow Minister for International Trade and Supply Chain Resilience.

Burdens on Canadian Communities

November 10, 2021

As Canadians increasingly struggle to make ends meet, Justin Trudeau’s activist government continues to ignore the serious issues this nation faces. To discuss the historic burdens and challenges brought on by this Liberal government and its affect on Canadian communities, we are joined by the Honourable Andrew Scheer, Member of Parliament for Regina—Qu’Appelle.

Risks to Economic Prosperity

October 26, 2021

At a time when Canadians are looking to their government for leadership, the Prime Minister appointed a group of largely inexperienced individuals who represent a real risk to our economy. It is clear now more than ever the damage Justin Trudeau has inflicted on Canada’s finances. With inflation at its highest point since February 2003, the Liberal government’s trillion-dollar debt has saddled Canadians with burdens instead of jobs and opportunities. To shed light on Canada’s impending economic crisis, we are joined by the Honorable Ed Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford.

Rising Prices in Canada

October 19, 2021

As everyday life in Canada becomes increasingly unaffordable, from an increase in grocery bills to skyrocketing gas prices, Canadians deserve a government that has a real plan to get inflation under control and get our economy back on track. To discuss the continuous rise in prices, I am joined by Kelly McCauley, Member of Parliament for Edmonton West.

New Parliament

October 12, 2021

Following the election, Conservatives recognize all those who have been left behind by the Trudeau Liberals. Too many Canadians are worried about their financial future, their jobs, and the rising costs of living. To talk about what we can expect in the new parliament and our plan hold the Liberals to account, we are joined by Michelle Ferreri, Member of Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha.

Free Speech and Bill C-10

August 20, 2021

The freedom of speech is a cornerstone to a democracy. Bill C-10 threatens Canadians’ right to information and their individual liberty. While the government has the duty to uphold these virtues, Justin Trudeau’s government avoids their responsibilities. We are joined by independent journalist Spencer Fernando to talk about the Liberal’s dangerous attitude and how bill C-10 is affecting his industry.

Our Conservative Plan

August 5, 2021

With signs from the Trudeau government pointing to an early election call that many people feel is unnecessary, our guest speaker Member of Parliament for Edmonton—Wetaskiwin Mike Lake is here to chat with us about election preparedness and the conservative plan.

A Trillion-dollar Debt

July 30, 2021

While Justin Trudeau has ignored unanimous calls from all levels of government to take Canada’s finances seriously, production across Canada has fallen having been devastated by the pandemic. We have seen thousands of jobs lost and sectors are facing continuous decline. To shed light on the effects a trillion-dollar debt is already having on everyday Canadians, we are joined by Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead.

Trudeau’s Attempt to Defy Parliament

July 21, 2021

While Justin Trudeau continues to double down on his dangerous and naïve approach towards communist China, he has also used his Office as Prime Minister to defy Parliament and even take the Speaker of the House to court. To discuss what led to the Executive branch to challenge the will of the people and what this means for Canada on the international stage, we are joined by Michael Chong, Honourable Member of Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills and Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs.

Exempting Farmers from the Liberal Carbon Tax

July 17, 2021

The Liberal Carbon Tax has been a massive burden on Canadians. Farms have been particularly hard hit by this leftist-ideology-driven policy that leaves farmers with no alternative but to pay the tax on tax directly out of their own pockets. To discuss this tax grab from the Federal Government and to shed light on his Private Members Bill which would exempt farmers from the Liberal Carbon Tax, we are joined by Philip Lawrence, Member of Parliament for Northumberland-Peterborough South and Shadow Minister for National Revenue.

Supporting Family Farm Businesses

July 8, 2021

As the Trudeau government continues to ignore the needs and voices of Canadians our Conservative MP Larry Maguire has triumphed by getting Bill C-208 passed supporting family farm businesses by lowering taxes! While the Liberal caucus members decided not to vote in favour of this commonsense bill; this legislation will allow sustainable business and stable farm succession and, at the same time, secure retirement savings for business owners and farmers who sell their operations to family members. We have MP Larry Maguire to tell us more about his historic bill!

The Liberals are Taking the Speaker to Court.

June 30, 2021

The Trudeau government is challenging the power of the House of Commons, in order to silence any voice of opposition. They are suing Liberal Member of Parliament Hon. Anthony Rota, the Speaker of the House, for trying to enforce the will of Parliament. Today we have Gérard Deltell the Member of Parliament for Louis-Saint-Laurent and House Leader of the Official Opposition with us, who has been calling out the Liberal government to stop their cover ups.

Le gouvernement Trudeau remet en cause le pouvoir de la Chambre des communes, dans le but de faire taire toute voix d’opposition. Ils poursuivent le député libéral Hon. Anthony Rota, Président de la Chambre, pour avoir tenté de faire respecter la volonté du Parlement. Aujourd’hui, nous accueillons Gérard Deltell, député de Louis-Saint-Laurent et leader de l’opposition officielle à la Chambre, qui demande au gouvernement libéral d’arrêter ses dissimulations.

Another Liberal Scandal

June 25, 2021

Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have been caught in yet another scandal. This time 97% of Liberal MPs given contracts worth tens of thousands of dollars to Justin Trudeau’s childhood friend and Liberal campaign insider, Tom Pitfield. The Liberal government continues to gift taxpayer money to party insiders without remorse or accountability. To shed more light on this corruption, we are joined by Michael Barrett, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes, and Shadow Minister for Ethics.

Canada’s Housing Affordability Crisis

June 16, 2021

Canada is in a housing affordability crisis. It is becoming impossible for first-time buyers to enter the housing market, and ever-increasing rents squeeze families’ budgets. As Justin Trudeau continues to ignore calls to action from Canadians, the dream of homeownership is pushed further out of reach. This overwhelming unaffordability stems from the Liberal Government’s support for a system that doesn’t allow for the creation of sufficient supply, that favours foreign investors over Canadians, and which ignores ongoing money laundering in real estate. To shed light on this crisis, we are joined by Brad Vis, MP, MP, Member of Parliament for Mission-Matsqui-Fraser Canyon, and Shadow Minister for Housing.

Join host and Member of Parliament Jamie Schmale for a look at the hottest topics hitting Canada’s political landscape, and how they might impact Canadians.
