SECURE JOBS by recovering the 1 million jobs lost during the pandemic within one year. Every Canadian deserves the security and dignity that comes with a secure, stable, and well-paid job. Canada’s Conservatives will enact a comprehensive jobs plan to get Canadians back to work across the country.
SECURE ACCOUNTABILITY by enacting a new Anti-Corruption law to clean up the unaccountability in Ottawa. Canada’s Conservatives will put the country first, by enacting the toughest accountability and transparency laws in Canada’s history.
SECURE MENTAL HEALTH through our Canada Mental Health Action Plan. The last year has made clear the mental health crisis we face. It’s time to make it clear that mental health IS health, and to treat it properly.
SECURE THE COUNTRY by creating a strategic stockpile of essential products and building the capacity to manufacture vaccines at home. Canada’s Conservatives will ensure that our country is ready to face future pandemics, including the elevated risk of bioterrorism threats. Our goal is simple: be prepared and take rapid action so that we can protect the health of Canadians while avoiding long-term impacts on the economy and on the mental health of Canadians.
SECURE OUR ECONOMY by balancing the budget over the next decade. Spending to protect Canadians in the pandemic was the right thing to do, and Conservatives supported it. But we can’t pass unsustainable debt on to future generations. Once the recovery starts, we will need to get spending under control.

Reason for running
I want Canada to be the best country in the world and I want us to leave a legacy to our children of prudent & accountable governance, premier environmental stewardship, and a resilient health care system. If you send me to Ottawa, I will work tirelessly to achieve this mission for my family, for yours, and for the whole country.
