Stubbs focuses on the energy sector and rural crime

Shannon Stubbs says she wants to make life more affordable for Albertan’s this upcoming election.

“More than 80 per cent of middle class families are paying higher taxes. What I hear from people in Lakeland, whether its farmers or oil and gas worker or families, is costs keep going up and life is becoming more expensive.”

“The challenges that Alberta faces are a direct result of policy and legislation that are anti-energy and anti-Alberta and are decisions made by the federal government.”

Stubbs is the incumbent Conservative Party MP and is running for re-election in the Lakeland riding. Stubbs key priorities are to repeal Bills C-48 and C-69, scrap the carbon tax and build pipelines.

“It will involve clarifying and streamlining the regulatory process for pipeline application as well as using the federal government’s constitutional power where necessary. Pipelines that are under federal jurisdiction and working with provinces to create energy corridors for multiple forces of energy that can cross the country.”

Stubbs says a recent Stats Canada survey showed crime in rural areas is 23 per cent higher than in urban areas and she will continue to focus on the issue if re-elected.

“We will increase sentences and impose tougher penalties. We’ve also announced a series of measures involving gangs and organized crime activity.”

Stubbs says the conservative government plan to phase in a universal tax cut over the next four years. 

“It will benefit in particular low-income Canadians at the lowest tax bracket. It will apply to everybody because we know that every dollar left in the pocket of a hard-working Canadian is better spent, invested or saved than in the pocket of a politician.”

Stubbs says policies put in place by the Liberal government have hurt the energy sector and Alberta.

“The challenges that Alberta faces are a direct result of policy and legislation that are anti-energy and anti-Alberta and are decisions made by the federal government.”

Stubbs says she will continue meeting with voters as the election date draws closer. The federal election will take place on October 21.
