Canada’s Affordability Crisis

April 9, 2024

The affordability crisis has reached new heights and everyday Canadians are at their wits’ end.

The Bank of Canada has rapidly been hiking interest rates, the most we’ve ever seen since its inception, which has left millions of Canadians to cover absurd costs as they renew their mortgages.

What will it take for the Government to understand that struggling families can’t afford high taxes, higher inflationary spending, or especially the highest interest rates our country has ever seen?

Watch and listen as my guest, Brad Redekopp MP, and I dive deeper into the policies that are affecting Canadian pocketbooks, why home prices are set to continue to increase for years to come, and much more.

Canada is broken.

After 8 years of Liberal government life has become unaffordable. With out of control prices on home heating and food the Liberals insist on increasing your taxes and adding additional tax such as the carbon tax. Canada is broken.

Justin Trudeau and his NDP’s reckless spending continued to fuel Canada’s rampant inflation and affordability crisis. Last week, the Bank of Canada made the sharpest interest rate hike in nearly 25 years. The Trudeau government’s policy of ignoring our finances as a global phenomenon is careless and unacceptable. To shed light on this latest development, we are joined by Adam Chambers, Member of Parliament for Simcoe North and Deputy Shadow Minister for Finance and Middle-Class Prosperity.
