Promote Strong Families

I was very fortunate while growing up. Not because of a family trust fund, but because I had the benefit of two loving parents who stayed together and supported my brother and I for as long as we needed it. I want to ensure that the children of Ottawa West—Nepean enjoy the same childhood as I did. In this day and age, it is nearly impossible for all but the wealthiest among us to support families with children without both parents working full time, and often multiple jobs. We need to adopt fiscal policy that supports families and provides real choice to parents. I want to lower the taxes of single income households, and provide additional tax credits for all parents. We need to do our part to make life more affordable for all families. The government needs to stop taking so much money from families.
