While I realize what we see here is hobbyguy's opinion that Tim Krupa still believes the old, failed theories about climate change, I suppose Krupa did bring this disrepute on himself by throwing his lot in with the Trudeau Liberals. It is disappointing to me to know that a young man with a good education would be foolish enough to destroy his personal credibility by carrying the torch for defunct theories so obviously intended to frighten gullible people into compliance with an ideological agenda.

Strong governemnt pensions are important to seniors and all everyday Canadians. These strong government pensions help to minimize the financial burdens of the "sandwich" generation who are trying to save for their own retirement, raise children, and look after elders all at the same time.

And yes, the improvements to CPP will continue phase in with a Liberal government until 2025 over the opposition of the incumbent's party, who value corporate profits over long term prosperity of everyday Canadians.


A vote for Tim Krupa is a vote for a more prosperous future for all working Canadians and their much loved elders.

You are totally correct on strong Government pensions. Have you noticed the promises of Trudeau have failed to surface?
Have you noticed not only the middle class have began to fall down?
If the middle class have been financially harmed by the Liberal Government financially, what do you think is happening to the seniors?

Maybe I'm missing something, although the more cash you spread out across the world, to his friends charities and with wasteful spending such as the extended CERB now EI we are all going to financially be hurt if this Government is elected again.

Do not like this gentleman for one reason and one reason only. I knew nothing of him before but when he came out against Tracy gray saying her silence on telling people to get the vaccine was deafening or something along those lines.
For one since I distrust 98% of politician and probably 90% are not there to serve us , I don't think it's a politician's job to give us medical advice. We have medical professionals to give us advice. So his early attempts at Mud throwing fall short to me because I think he doesn't realize his place as a politician. I take exceptional offense to a politician trying to tell me what's good for me. It's not his place and as a result I despise a person like that. So that attempt at slinging mud backfired in my eyes at least. Shut up tim, it's not your place. And your arrogance and ignorance has shown through early. Thank you for making it easy to figure out who you are and as a result definitely not vote for you.

The "shtick" is out of place. Starting with the deficit that the CPC created by creating a structural revenue deficit.

Andrew Coyne, who as well as being a well known writer, has a masters degree in economics from the London School of Economics, and was raised by a father who who is a former governor of the Bank of Canada, has this take: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion ... s-looking/

"The Conservative promise to balance the budget “over the next decade” is a masterpiece of meaninglessness: the latest projections from the Parliamentary Budget Office show the budget will be all but balanced – a deficit of less than 1 per cent of GDP – inside of four years. It would require heroic acts of profligacy to prevent it from balancing in 10."

In other words, the Liberal plans are there to deal with the deficit and they are working.

And none of that takes into account the mid and longer term effects of the international agreement to "stop the race to the bottom" by holding big corporations responsible for taxation due in the countries where profits are made, and at minimum corporate tax level of 15% - which the Liberals were a big part of. Oh yes, and mightily opposed the doofus O'Toole and his unthinking dogmatic dullards like the local incumbent.

So you can put that false narrative nonsense "oh the deficit" from the CPC talking points away - it is debunked garbage. The CPC created the structural revenue deficit and have no clue how to solve it except to trash the befits that everyday Canadians rely on, short our veterans, and under fund the military, R&D, and a host of other key things that make Canada teh great country it is.

Tim Krupa has a deep and broad understanding of economic and fiscal matters in a pan Canadian context - and indeed a world context with his education at Oxford, time at Harvard Business School, time with a large American investment firm and latterly with CPP Investments. By electing Tim Krupa we will add significantly to Canada's parliamentary talent pool on economic and fiscal matters. Tim has the expertise to help us return to the record low unemployment we enjoyed before COVID hit, and do so in a manner that will benefit all Canadians with rising after tax real median incomes.

And NO, the middle class have NOT been harmed by the Liberals, in fact everyday Canadians have benifited greatly from the Liberal government. https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-q ... 3a-eng.htm

"Median family income is steady in 2019"

"The median after-tax income of Canadian families and unattached individuals was $62,900 in 2019, up 0.5%..."

SNIP

"Poverty rate continued to decline in 2019

The market basket measure (MBM) was adopted as Canada's Official Poverty Line in June 2019. According to the MBM, a family lives in poverty if it does not have enough income to purchase a specific basket of goods and services in its community. About 3.7 million Canadians, or 10.1% of the population, lived below Canada's Official Poverty Line in 2019, down from 11.0% in 2018."

SNIP

"Income equality improving in Canada

One of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals is to reduce inequality, including income inequality. One target is sustained income growth for the lowest four deciles (the bottom 40% of the population).

When measuring income inequality, it is common practice to use income measures based on after-tax household income that has been adjusted for household size (adjusted after-tax income). Based on adjusted after-tax income, incomes of Canadians in the bottom four deciles have been rising quite steadily for more than two decades, increasing by an average of 1.6% per year above inflation since 2000."

As far as seniors go, I can tell you it is a complex picture.

The improvements to CPP will have little effect on existing seniors, except for the improvements in survivor benefits. The CPP improvements will, however, have increasingly significant beneficial effects for those who are still working when they retire. And yup, the CPC dullards are mightily opposed to improving CPP benefits that are the bedrock of everyday Canadians retirement prospects.

The OAS system has been improved by bumping up the GIS. Is it enough of bump? It has helped but has not kept pace with rent increases and food costs. That's why the Liberals are introducing a 10% rise in OAS pension payments in 2022 for those 75 and older - who are the hardest hit group. I know, the age line has left some folks who are in need out. That's why a further bump in GIS payments is being discussed in Liberal circles.

While not perfect, the response for seniors from the Liberals has been quite strong. The new "Aging in Place" program is a solid start toward to achieving a key goal for the vast majority of seniors - which is to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. The Liberals have been consistent champions of Home Care options to help seniors stay in their own homes (it is too bad that O'Toole's provincial CPC allies have consistently either refused the $$$billions the LIberals offered or diverted it into private corporation pockets and generally messed it up).

In contrast, the O'Toole CPC offers up its usual meaningless platter of "boutique tax credits". Big whoop! The median income of seniors 65+ is less than $30K. "Tax credits" do them absolutely no good.

As Tim Krupa understands, and the Liberals understand - through a strong grassroots Senior Liberals Commission, that seniors needs are varied and complex. Seniors want to stay in their own homes safely and securely - and when the sunset comes and dire need arises, have safe and secure LTC facilities as a last resort. Tim will be able to help with that because the Senior Liberals Commission has strong representation in Kelowna with local, provincial and national policy representation from Kelowna that can provide Tim with the right and timely advice.

LOL - all Tim "understands" is that if by some massive brain fart he (and the Liberals for that matter) is elected, he will vote as he is told to vote. That's it. That's all you need to know about your Liberal candidate.

Back up some didn't Trudeau say the budget would balance itself?? Take away covid costs he isn't doing so well. He is also second term stop trying to place blame!

As for Covid if he would have gave it to only those who actually qualified we likely wouldn't be so deep!

I should further add, Tim might have some knowledge although if he disagrees with Trudeau, good bye! We have seen a history of it by pushing Wilson out the door. I could trust Trudeau or any other Liberal to hold a $100.00 bill for me for five minutes, they would fine a place to throw it away.

Is Tim a globalist and how much does he trust China? I'm curious, are Canadian pension investments in China wise or ethical? Are CPP investments far from becoming CCP investments? Is Canadian pension money placed in black-listed Chinese companies? Are we invested in Chinese coal while we skewer western citizens?

I see Hydrogen is the future according to some investment companies, getting the hydrogen isn't as easy or as clean as it seems and 99% comes from gas reformation which creates plenty of CO2.

Having pension investments in China makes me a tiny nervous.

Either way, I assume Tim isn't the only person that can save us. Is Tim getting us deeper and more intertwined in China, or out of China, or neither?

Tim Krupa has got nothing to do with China deals, that was already done under FIPA. It's a done deal courtesy of Tim Krupa's
opponents. You're barking up the wrong tree...

Ok, so this was when Harper was in. Where is it currently? If it is still there my question is why if it is not right? This seems to be a problem with the Liberal followers.

If it was Harper, then what will Krupa or any other Liberal do to change it? Further more why is it still where it is today, Trudeau has had two terms to change it.

31 year deal.


Canadian governments are locked in for a generation. If Canada finds the deal unsatisfactory, it cannot be cancelled completely for 31 years.
China benefits much more than Canada, because of a clause allowing existing restrictions in each country to stay in place. Chinese companies get to play on a relatively level field in Canada, while maintaining wildly arbitrary practices and rules for Canadian companies in China.
Chinese companies will be able to seek redress against any laws passed by any level of government in Canada which threaten their profits. Australia has decided not to enter FIPA agreements specifically because they allow powerful corporations to challenge legislation on social, environmental and economic issues. Chinese companies investing heavily in Canadian energy will be able seek billions in compensation if their projects are hampered by provincial laws on issues such as environmental concerns or First Nations rights, for example.
Cases will be decided by a panel of professional arbitrators, and may be kept secret at the discretion of the sued party. This extraordinary provision reflects an aversion to transparency and public debate common to the Harper cabinet and the Chinese politburo.
Differences between FIPA and the North American Free Trade Agreement may offer intriguing loopholes for American lawyers to argue for equal treatment under the principle of Most Favoured Nation.
