MESSAGE FROM STEPHEN HARPER
n this election, Canadians will choose between principled leader-ship and opportunism; between a stable government and a recklesscoalition; between a low-tax plan for jobs and growth and a high-taxagenda that will stall our recovery, kill jobs, and set you and yourfamily back. t’s a clear choice, a real choice – and it couldn’t bemore important.ur Conservative overnment has been consistent – we’re ere forCanada. e’re taking action on the priorities of Canadians who workhard and play by the rules, and we’re steering our country throughthe worst global economic recession since the 90s.e’re creating jobs now, and building a bright future for our childrenand grandchildren. e’re supporting our men and women in uniformby providing the equipment they need to do their jobs. e’re defend-ing our national sovereignty, and standing up for our history andtraditions. e’re putting the rights of victims and law-abiding citizensahead of the rights of criminals. And we’re taking action on issues of concern unique to each region of the country.Canada is emerging from the global recession as one of the world’stop-performing advanced economies; throughout the crisis of thepast two years, the world has looked to Canada as a model andinspiration. Through our conomic Action lan we’re making thenecessary investments to protect Canadians and to create jobs now,while laying a strong foundation for long-term economic growth.ur low-tax plan is helping businesses create jobs in our communi-ties. And we’re reducing taxes on hard-working Canadian families,because we understand that household budgets are tight.But there is more to be done. ow is not the time for instability, orfor reckless, opportunistic experiments. The global economy remainsfragile; and Canadians remain concerned about their jobs and theirchildren’s future. ur overnment has a plan to meet these chal-lenges – a plan that is working – and we need to stay the course.mmediately prior to this election, on arch
