FRENCH TRANSITS A GREAT PLEASURE TO BE WITH YOU HERE TODAY. [ End of Translation ] I’VE HAD THE PLEASURE MEETING WITH YOU IN YOUR STUDIO OR AT EVENTS LIKE THIS TO GIVE YOU EACH AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASK QUESTIONS OR CREATE ISSUES THAT MAY BE IMPORTANT TO YOUR COMMUNITY OR TO YOUR LEADERS. THERE IS A LOT OF WAYS TO GET NEWS AND INFORMATION THESE DAYS. BUT COMMUNITY NEWSPAPERS. NEWSPAPERS ARE AN IMPORTANT SOURCE OF THAT NEWS INFORMATION FOR SO MANY PEOPLE. SO WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE GAVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING UP SOME. OF THESE ISSUES THAT MAY BE IMPORTANT TO YOU. RIGHT NOW WE ARE CONTINUING TO PUT FORWARD OUR POSITIVE CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE ABOUT HELPING CANADIANS GET AHEAD, LEAVING MORE MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS AND RETURNING THE COUNTRY BACK TO BALANCED BUDGETS. WE HAVE MADE A NUMBER OF ANNOUNCEMENTS THAT ALL SPEAK TO LOWERING THE TAX BURDEN FOR HARD WORKING CANADIANS WE WILL LOWER THE FIRST INCOME TAX BRACT, BRAT SAVING THE AVERAGE COUPLE $850 AND BRING BACK THE GREEN TAX CREDIT FOR PEOPLE WHO TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION AND CHILDREN’S SPORTS ACTIVITIES TAX CREDIT WILL BE BACK AS WELL UNDER THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT. AND BRING IN THE GREEN HOME RENOVATION TAX CREDIT TO HELP PEOPLE UPGRADE THEIR HOMES AND FURNACE TO INSULATION TO LOWER THEIR ENERGY BILL AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AS WELL AND WE ARE ALSO GOING TO RAISE THE AGE LIMIT FOR SENIORS AND BOOST THE RESP FOR PARENT SAVING FOR FOR THEIR CHILDREN. WE HAVE SEEN FROM THE LIBERALS A LOT OF UNFOUNDED ATTACKS THEY ARE MAKING A LOT OF THINGS UP. SO I WANTED TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY AS WELL TO TELL YOU THAT WE WILL MAINTAIN FUNDING FOR IMPORTANT SERVICES LIKE HEALTH CARE AND EDUCATION. WE ARE GOING TO KEEP MAKING THE TRANSFER PAYMENTS. WE WILL GET BACK TO BALANCED BUDGETS BECAUSE WE KNOW RUNWAY DEFICITS FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS MEAN A WHOLE LOT MORE OF YOUR TAX DOLLAR GOES TO PAY THE INTEREST ON THE DEBT AND THAT MEANS HIGHER TAXES AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S CARBON TAX IS MAKING THE COST OF EVERYTHING MORE EXPENSIVE. FROM HOME HEATING AND HIT THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY VERY HARD AND BUSINESSES AS WELL. AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S TAX ON SMALL BUSINESSES, WE ARE GOING TO UNDO. THAT ALL WHILE RUNNING AN UNETHICAL AND TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT. SO JUSTIN TRUDEAU MADE THING MORE EXPENSIVE AND RAISED TAXES AND WE WILL HAVE A GOOF LIVES WITHIN ITS MEANS AND HELP YOU GET AHEAD. I KNOW THIS TIME IS FOR YOU. I DON’T WANT TO TALK THE WHOLE 45 MINUTES TO USE THE TIME AVAILABLE FOR US. SO I WILL TURN IT OVER. I THINK WE HAVE A MICROPHONE AND WE WILL TRY TO ACCOMMODATE AS MUCH AS WE CAN. IF WE KEEP OUR QUESTIONS AS SHORT AS POSSIBLE AND I WILL KEEP MY ANSWERS AS CONCISE AS POSSIBLE AND HOPEFULLY EVERYONE WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY.>>Question: MY QUESTION IS THIS. WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO WITH NDP OR GREEN PARTY? AND IN YESTERDAY’S DEBATE. WERE YOU ALREADY AGGRESSIVE. WAS IT REPENT?>>CAN WE TURN THE VOLUME UP ON THE SPEAK AREA LITTLE BIT. I THINK I UNDERSTAND THE FIRST QUESTION ABOUT WHAT TYPE OF PARLIAMENT MAY BE ELECTED. SO WE STILL HAVE TWO WEEKS LEFT IN THIS CAMPAIGN. MY FOCUS IS ON GETTING A MAJORITY GOVERNMENT. OBVIOUSLY IT’S UP TO CANADIANS TO DECIDE WHAT TYPE OF PARLIAMENT EXISTS. WE ARE VERY CONFIDENT THAT WE CAN GET THAT MAJORITY GOVERNMENT. WE BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN SEATS ALL ACROSS THIS COUNTRY. AND IMPLEMENT OUR AGENDA TO LOWER TAXES AND MAKE LIFE MORE AFFORDABLE. IN REGARD TO THE DEBATE LAST NIGHT. THAT WAS THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY THAT I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO FACE TO FACE WITH JUSTIN TRUDEAU. HE SKIPPED OUT ON THE FIRST DEBATE AND WOULD NOT ATTEND THE SECOND WHICH WAS ULTIMATELY CAN SOLD HERE WE ARE FOUR WEEKS INTO THE CAMPAIGN. THAT WAS THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY — AND I WAS JUST VERY FRUSTRATED AT ALL THE LIES AND UNTRUTHS THAT HE’S BEEN SAYING, MAKING THINGS UP ABOUT OUR PARTY. AND DENYING HIS ROLE IN THE SNC-LAVALIN SCANDAL. SO I DECIDED TO TAKE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS THE FRUSTRATION THAT MANY CANADIANS HAVE HAD FOR HIS ABILITY TO TELL THE TRUTH AND TO COME CLEAN WITH CANADIANS AND TO HIGHLIGHT HIS RECORD OF FAILURE.>>HELLO, Mr. SCHEER. MY NAME IS JOSEPH SALVADOR. I REPRESENT MOSTLY THE ENTERTAINMENT SIDE OF THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY. BUT I BELIEVE THAT THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY IN CANADA HAS A VERY CLOSE ALIGNMENT WITH THE VALUES OF THE CONSERVATIVES. OF HOWEVER, WE DON’T SEE A LOT OF CONSERVATIVES ENGAGING WITH US IN OUR FESTIVALS, IN OUR EVENTS. WOULD THIS BE SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD PUT SOMEWHAT UP IN YOUR PRIORITY TO ENGAGE WITH THE MINORITY GROUPS IN CANADA?>>YES, OF COURSE. AND I CAN TELL YOU IN MY HOME RIDING OF REGINA CAPEL I’VE DEVELOPED A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FILIPINO COMMUNITY. I WAS ABLE TO ATTEND MANY OF THEIR FESTIVALS THROUGH THE LAST TWO OR THREE YEARS AS LEADER OF THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY AND UNFORTUNATELY WE DON’T HAVE AS MANY CONSERVATIVE MPs IN THE GTA IN THE LAST PARLIAMENTARIMENT AS WE USED TO BUT I KNOW OUR CANDIDATES ARE BUILDING BRIDGES WITH YOUR COMMUNITY AND ATTENDING EVENTS AND SHOWING YOUR RESPECT AND APPRECIATION FOR THE CONTRIBUTION YOU MADE TO CANADIAN SOCIETY. ARE YOU RIGHT THAT OUR VALUES OFTEN ALIGN VERY CLOSELY. I KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE WHO COME TO CANADA FROM THE PHILIPPINES DO SO TO START A BUSINESS, TO BUILD A COMMUNITY. IT’S A FANTASTIC COMMUNITY AND I WILL ABSOLUTELY DO MY BEST. I AM LEARNING — I ONLY HAVE — [SPEAKING ALTERNATIVE LANGUAGE] BUT CERTAINLY HOPING TO LEARN MORE AS ID ATTEND MORE AND MORE EVENTS.>>Question: FROM THE NEWSPAPER. WHAT IMMIGRATION POLICY WOULD YOU PRIORITIZE TO BOOST FILIPINO CONDITIONS IN CANADA? FOR CAREGIVERS AND FAMILY REUNIFICATION?>>WELL THE IMMIGRATION CAME UP A LITTLE BIT LAST NIGHT IN THE DEBATE. AND I MADE IT VERY CLEAR THAT OUR PARTY WOULD HAVE AN OPEN AND IMCONCLUSIVE IMMIGRATION POLICY THAT WILL RESPOND TO CANADA’S ECONOMIC NEED AND RECOGNIZING THERE ARE SHORTAGES IN AREAS WHERE THE PEOPLE FROM THE PHILIPPINES WOULD LIKE TO COME WORK AND PROVIDE THAT. AND WE ALSO WANT TO PROVIDE A PATHWAY TO PERMANENTSY TO PROVIDE THAT — IF PEOPLE ARE HERE TO FILL TEMPORARY ISSUES WITHIN THE LABOUR MARKET, THAT THERE IS A PATHWAY TO BECOME A PERMANENT RESIDENTS IN CANADA AND IT MAY BE THE PRIMARY OVERALL AS WELL AS RECOGNITION. I STILL BELIEVE THERE’S WORK TO DO AND THE GOVERNMENT CAN PLAY A SIGNIFICANT ROLE WITH THE PROVINCES TO ENSURE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN OTHER COUNTRIES OR WHO HAVE WORK EXPERIENCE IN OTHER COUNTRIES DON’T HAVE TO SPEND YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS REQUALIFYING HERE CANADA. A MORE STREAM LINE PROCESSED TO GET THOSE SKILLS RECOGNIZED.>>MY NAME IS ROSE. I AM THE PRESIDENT OF THE PRESS CLUB OF ONTARIO. AND I AM CONNECTED. I AM NOT A FILIPINO PUBLICATION. Mr. PRIME MINISTER –>>THANK YOU.>>Question: YOU PROMISED TO BALANCE THE BUDGET. YOU ALSO PROMISED TO SPEND A LOT OF DOLLARS TO BENEFIT CANADIANS. WHERE WILL YOU GET THE MONEY TO FINANCE THESE PROMISES?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IT’S OBVIOUSLY A VERY KEY QUESTION WHEN WE ARE LOOKING AT PARTY PROMISES I SHOULD TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT WHILE THE LIBERALS MAY HAVE UNVEILED THE DOCUMENT. IT IS BY NO MEAN A PLATFORM BECAUSE THEIR POLICY SIS ARE NOT COSTED. OVER HALF OF THEIR POLICIES ARE NOT COSTED. CANADIANS HAVE NO IDEA HOW THEY ARE GOING TO PAY FOR. IT WE KNOW THEY WILL RAISE TAXES. THAT’S HOW BUT WE DON’T KNOW EXACTLY BY HOW MUCH. WE WILL RELEASE A FULLY ACCOSTED PLATFORM WITH PLENTY OF TIME BEFORE THE ELECTION. WE HAVE ALREADY ANNOUNCED WHERE WE WILL GET A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF MONEY REQUIRED TO PAY FOR OUR TEN SPENDING PROMISES AND TAX COSTED. WITH WILL HE CUT CORPORATE WELFARE BY AT LEAST $1.5 BILLION. TAKE THAT MONEY AWAY FROM HIGHLY PROFITABLE COMPANIES THAT GOES TO HAIR SOLDERS AND CEO’S. AND WE WILL CUT CANADA’S FOREIGN AID SPENDING BY 24%. TO MAKE SURE THEY NEED IT, NOT RELATIVELY OFF OIL COUNTRIES AND PUT THAT BACK INTO THE POCKET OF CANADIANS.>>Question: I HOPE HAVE YOU A SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN. MY QUESTION IS ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE. WHAT ARE YOUR POLICIES ABOUT THE CLIMATE CHANGES AND WHERE DO YOU STAND ABOUT THE CLIME CHANGES. FOR EXAMPLE IN THE FUTURE FOR THE YOUNGER GENERATION. WHAT ARE YOUR POLL-WISE OBVIOUSLY THE ENVIRONMENT IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE. NOT JUST FOR POLITICAL REASONS BUT TO PASS ON A BETTER ENVIRONMENT WE PASS ON TO OUR CHILDREN. WE CAN’T LEAVE THEM WITH A FISCAL DEFICIT OR AN ENVIRONMENTAL DEFICIT EITHER. THAT’S WHERE WE HAVE A PLAN ARE NOT ENVIRONMENT. WHERE JUSTIN TRUDEAU IS FAILINGG AND WE ARE GETTING FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY FROM OUR TARGETS. WHILE EVERYTHING IS GETTING MORE EXPENSIVE. WE WILL TAKE THE CLIMATE CHANGE PLAN GLOBAL. WE CAN HAVE LESS CO-2 IN THE ATMOSPHERE BY EXPORTING CLEAN CANADIAN TECHNOLOGY LIKE CAR BAN CAPTURE. BY PRODUCE ARE MORE THING HERE AT HOME THAT WE CAN DO MORE EFFICIENTLY LIKE ALUMINUM. WE CAN PRODUCE A TON OF ALUMINUM IN, SAY, QUEBEC AT A FRACK OF LEE.>>Michael: S FOR TO A TYPE OF COUNTRY LIKE CHINA. SO TAKING THE CLIMB CHANGE. PAY IT GLOBAL AND MAKE SURE EMITTERS PUT IT ON A INVESTMENT. FUND AND FOCUSING ON INVESTMENT AND NOT TAXES AND ALSO OFFER THINGS LINE THE GREEN RENOVATION TAX CREDIT. AND A GREEN TAX CREDIT WHICH ALLOWS COMPANY TOTS DEVELOP NEW PRODUCT OR METHOD FOR PRODUCING THING. WE WILL BE ABLE TO BENEFIT FROM THAT. THOSE ARE TANGIBLE CONCRETE THINGS THAT WILL GIVE CANADA THE BEST WAY TO REACH THOSE TARGETS.>>I’M A UMD ADVOCATED A WELL. MY QUESTION SERVICE RELATED TO PARIS AGREEMENT. WHAT IS YOUR TIMELINE TO RESET GOALS THAT HAVE BEEN SET OUT BY THE PARIS AGREEMENT? AND HOW WOULD YOU SEE YOUR PARTN THE TAX CREDIT THAT CAN BE OFFERED TO ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS.>>SO THE PARIS AGREEMENT GUIDELINE IS FOR 2030. WE ARE FOCUSED ON ACTION. WE ARE FOCUS ON ENSURING PUBLIC POLICY GOES TO DEVELOP NEW METHOD OF PRODUCTION OR NEW TECHNOLOGIES. NOT SIMPLY — BASICALLY FOCUSED ON THAT ACTION. THAT’S WHY WE ARE GOING TO INVEST IN THING LIKE CONSERVATION IN WETLAND, IN RECLAIMATION PROJECTS THOSE ARE THE TYPES OF TANGIBLE THING THAT LEAD TO A BETTER ENVIRONMENT AND ON REDUCTION OF EMISSIONS FOR EXAMPLE THE GREEN PATENT TAX CREDIT. HAVE SEEN OIL COMPANIES, ENERGY COMPANIES IN WESTERN CANADA ACTUALLY PRODUCE MORE BAR ARES OF REFINED PRO DUCT THEY ARE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A PROVINCIAL TAX CREDIT WHERE THEY WERE ABLE TO WRITE OFF MORE OF THEIR. HAVE INVESTMENT, DEVELOPING THAT INNOVATIVE PRODUCT AND EVERYBODY BENEFITS FROM THAT. SO THOSE ARE THE TYPE OF POLICY INITIATIVES WE WILL BE PURSUING.>>Question: I’M PINU FROM RADIO RUNNING FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN HEARING FROM ALL SORT OF PEOPLE. BUT NO ONE TOUCHED ON IMPORTANT POLICIES. WHAT WOULD YOU BE BRINGING FORCHY NARC THE REST OF THE WORLD? WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WILL BE ESTABLISHED WITH THE WORLD? BECAUSE CANADA IS A MULTI-CULTURAL AND ALSO DIVERSE COMMUNITY.>>YES, IT IS. IT’S ONE OF THE GREAT THING ABOUT CANADA IS WE ARE BLESSED BY THE DIVERSITY THAT WE HAVE AND THE CONTRIBUTIONS TO CANADIAN SOCIETY FROM PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AND DIFFERENT FAITHS AND DIFFERENT BACKGROUND AND CONSERVATIVES CELEBRATE THAT FACT. WHEN IT COMES TO FOREIGN POLICY IT’S VERY IMPORTANT THAT OUR FOREIGN POLICY IS CLEARLY DEFINED BY PROMOTING CANADA’S INTERESTS AND YOU MENTIONED SOUTH ASIA. WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF CHALLENGES IN THAT REGION UNDER JUSTIN TRUDEAU. I BELIEVE WE NEED A RESET IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH COUNTRIES LIKE INDIA AND CHINA.>>I HAD A SUCCESSFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THAT RELATIONSHIP CLOSER. INDIA HAS COMMON BONDS AND SHARED HISTORIES AND A LONG HISTORY IN THE COMMONWEALTH. INDIA IS THE WORLD’S LARGEST DEMOCRACY AND IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ALLY IN THAT REGION. SO STRONGER TRADE TIES AND ALSO CLOSER ALIGNMENT ON FOREIGN POLICY OBJECTIVES. AS IT RELATES TO CHINA OBVIOUSLY WE ARE GOING THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT PERIOD. I BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP THAT IS BUILT ON RESPECT BUT ALSO DEFENDING CANADA’S INTERESTS. STANDING UP FOR CANADIANS WHO ARE BEING ILLEGALLY DETAINED AND ALSO FOR OUR PRODUCERS. THAT WILL REQUIRE RESET IN THE RELATIONSHIP. I WANT TO HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. I WANT TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE. BUT WE HAVE TO DO SO FROM A POSITION THAT STANDS UP FOR CANADA’S INTERESTS.>>Question: Mr. ANDREW SCHEER, CERTAIN COMMUNITIES DID NOT LIKE THE POLICIES OF STEPHEN HARPER REGARDING THE HIJAB AND IMMIGRATION. AND THEY SHOWED THEIR ANGER IN THE LAST ELECTION. HOW DO YOU DIFFERENTIATE YOURSELF FROM STEPHEN HARPER? AND THERE IS A TRAIL ADVISORY — IF YOU WOULD BE ELECTED AS A PRIME MINISTER?>>WELL MY LEADERSHIP OF THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY ALLOWS ME TO WRITE A NEW CHAPTER IN OUR PARTY’S HISTORY. I HAVE SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF TIME AS LEADER OF THE PARTY BUILDING BRIDGES TO DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES WHO MAY NOT HAVE VOTED FOR US LAST TIME TO SEND THE SIGNAL THAT WE SHARE SO MANY COMMON — SO MUCH COMMON GROUND ON SO MANY ISSUES. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CONSERVATIVES REALIZE — I THINK MANY PEOPLE REALIZED OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS AND DECADE. ISSUE AFTER ISSUE, MANY NEW CANADIANS ARE CONSERVATIVE. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT LOWER TAXES AND THE ENTREPRENEUR SPIRIT AND ENSURING THAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO EARN — KEEP MORE OF THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY. SAFER COMMUNITIES. WANTING CRIMINALS OFF THE STREET SO THEY ARE NOT WORRIED ABOUT SENDING THEIR CHILDREN TO THE PARK OR TO SCHOOL. ISSUE AFTER ISSUE, WE HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON. AND SOMETIMES IT JUST TAKES A BETTER SYMPATHETIC OR TO SEND THE TYPE OF SIGNALS. AS IT RELATES TO THE REALITY ON THE GROUND. THOSE ARE ALWAYS EVOLVING AND THOSE CAN ALWAYS CHANGE AND ANY GOVERNMENT OF ANY POLITICAL STRIPE WILL ALWAYS TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE ACTUAL REALITIES OF THE SITUATION. OF COURSE I WOULD CONTINUE TO DO THAT AS WELL.>>I’M JENNIFER FROM CANADIAN LIVE WEEKLY. MY QUESTION IS IF YOU GOT ELECTED WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH CANADA AND CHINA’S RELATIONSHIP?>>THANK YOU. AND AS I MENTIONED WE ARE CLEARLY GOING THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT PERIOD IN OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. THERE ARE TWO CANADIANS WHO ARE BEING DETAINED, BEING HELD ILLEGALLY WITHOUT JUSTIFICATION. WE HAVE CANADIAN EXPORTS OF CANOLA, BEEF AND PORK. IT’S VERY CLEAR THAT CHINA DOES NOT RESPECT JUSTIN TRUDEAU. AND I BELIEVE TRUDEAU DID WEAKEN OUR POSITION WITH CHINA AS IT RELATES TO THE SNC-LAVALIN SCANDLE. BECAUSE ON THE ONE HAND HIS MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNMENT OF CHINA WITH THE CASE OF THE HUAWEI EXECUTIVE IS HE COULD NOT INTERFERE IN A COURT CASE. THAT WE HAVE AN INDEPENDENT PROCEEDING WHEN IT COMES TO CRIMINAL COURT PROCEEDINGS. AND THEN HE TURNS AROUND AND ATTEMPTS TO INTERFERE IN A CRIMINAL COURT CASE FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL PURPOSES. SO I BELIEVE THAT REALLY DID WEAKEN OUR POSITION BECAUSE ON THE ONE HAND. WE ARE DOING ONE THING AND DOING SOMETHING ELSE WHEN IT SUIT HIM. WE NEED A RESET IN THE RELATIONSHIP. LIKE I SAID IT IS GOOD FOR CANADA TO HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA. THAT IS WHAT I WOULD PURSUE. BUT I WOULD ALSO ENSURE THAT OUR GOVERNMENT STOOD UP FOR CANADIANS AND CANADA’S INTERESTS. IT TOOK JUSTIN TRUDEAU NINE MONTH TO REPLACE THE AMBASSADOR. I THINK THAT WAS A NEGATIVE SIGNAL TO SEND. I WOULD HAVE DONE THAT MUCH SOONER. AGAIN I’VE ANNOUNCED CERTAIN MEASURES I WOULD DO TO SEND A SIGNAL TO CHINA THAT WHILE IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE REPAIR THE RELATIONSHIP WE ARE ALSO GOING TONE SURE THAT OUR INTERESTS ARE PROTECTED.>>Question: FROM THE CANADIAN PUNJABI NEWSPAPER. MY QUESTION IS ABOUT INTERNATIONAL STUDENT. THE NUMBERS ARE GOING EVERYWHERE. THE STUDENT WHO CAME HERE FIVE YEARS AGO ON A TWO YEARS STUDY PERMIT AND THEN GOT A THREE-YEAR WORK PERMIT. NOW THEIR WORK PERMIT IS ENTIRING. OUT OF THOSE ONLY 15% ARE GETTING PR. THE KIND OF THE DRAW IS COMING. THE NUMBERS ARE VERY HIGH. NOT ALL CAN GET PR ON THEIR NUMBER BASE. THEY ARE MOVING ALL OVER THE PROVINCES TO GET THE PR. THEIR MOTIVE IS TO GET PR. SO 835% WHO ARE NOT GOING TO GET THE PR THEY WILL APPLY FOR THE REFUGEE STATUS. THAT IS WHAT IS GOING ON IN THERE. THAT’S WHAT WE ARE HEARING TALKS FROM THEM. THE MEMBER OF THE REFUGEE CLAIMS ESPECIALLY FROM INDIA JUMPED TO 400%. SO FIVE YEARS — TWO YEARS PERMITS AND TWO YEAR WORK PERMIT. IT’S GOING TO BE 26 MONTH AT LEAST WHEN THEIR DATE IS GOING TO COME. AND THEN THEY HAVE THREE MORE CHANCES TO REAPPEAL. AND BY THE TIME IT’S GOING TO BE EIGHT YEARS. THEIR CASE IS GOING TO BE DONE. BY THE TIME THEIR PASSPORT IS GOING TO SPIRE. YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO DEPORT THEM IF THEY WON’T HAVE A PROPER PASSPORT TO SEND THEM BACK. THIS IS GOING TO BE A HUGE MESS WITH ALL OF THESE STUDENT. THIS ARE COMMITTING SUICIDE. EVERY OTHER DAY WE ARE HEARING NEWS THAT INTERNATIONAL STUDENT HAS COMMITTED SUICIDE. SO IT’S GOING TO BE A BIG MESS. IF YOU BECOME A PRIME MINISTER, I WISH YOU ALL THE BETTS. IF YOU BECOME THE PRIME MINISTER, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO HAND THIS MESS?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR RAISING THIS WITH ME. I WILL CERTAINLY LOOK INTO IT. AND EXAMINE THE ISSUE AS YOU’VE DESCRIBED IT. WE CLEARLY NEED TO HAVE AN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM THAT IS BASED ON FAIRNESS, ORDERLINESS AND COMPASSION. AND WE NEED RULES TO BE FOLLOWED. WE HAVE CELEBRATED THE FACT THAT PEOPLE CAN COME HERE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE IT’S DONE PROPERLY THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNEL SORTS PEOPLE WHO ARE LEGITIMATELY WAITING THEIR TURN AND GOING THROUGH THE PROPER PROCESS CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE SYSTEM AS WELL. LET ME TAKE THAT BACK WITH ME. IT IS SOMETHING I’VE HEARD FROM TIME TO TIME. AND IT’S AN ISSUE THAT I THINK IS IMPORTANT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY IN ORDER TO FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON.>>MY NAME IS FROM — TV. FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, YOU SAID YOU ARE GOING TO BALANCE THE BUDGET THE NEXT FOUR YEARS. HOW WILL YOU DO THAT?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND AS I SAID A FEW MOMENTS AGO WE WILL TAKE $1.5 BILLION FROM CORPORATE WELFARE AND 25% OF CANADA’S FOREIGN AID BUDGET AND BRING THAT MONEY BACK HOME TO BOTH HELP BALANCE THE BUDGET AND PUT MORE MONEY IN THE POCKET OF CANADIANS. WHEN WE PULL OUT OUR FULLY COSTED CAMPAIGN PLATFORM EVERYONE WILL SEE EXACTLY HOW WE ACHIEVED. THAT IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THE RATE OF GROWTH UNDER THE SPENDING WITH JUSTIN TRUDEAU HAS BEEN EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH WITHOUT ANY OF THE RESULTS WE WERE PROMISED. FOR EXAMPLE, JUSTIN TRUDEAU SAID THAT ONE OF THE REASONS WHY HE WAS GOING TO GO INTO DEFICIT WAS TO PAY FOR INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS AND THE PARLIAMENTARY BUDGET OFFICER SAYS THE PROJECTS AREN’T GETTING BUILT AND THE PLAN DIDN’T EXIST. SO WE HAVE THE WORST OF BOTH WORLD. WE HAVE BIG DEFICITS WITHOUT THAT JUSTIFICATION. SO I MADE THAT ANNOUNCEMENT THAT WE WILL FUND THE PUBLIC TRANSIT EXPANSIONS HERE IN THE GTA. THE ONTARIO LINE AND THE YONGE LINE AS WELL. WE WILL HAVE A REAL PLAN FOR INFRASTRUCTURE. BUT WHEN WE LOOK AT WHERE THE GOVERNMENT HAS HAD VERY, VERY HIGH GROWTH AND SPENDING RATE, OBVIOUSLY EXERCISING RESPONSIBILITY ON THAT WILL HELP US GET BACK TO BALANCED BUDGETS. WHILE AT THE SAME TIME IT’S IMPORTANT TO REPEAT WE WILL KEEP INCREASING THE INVESTMENTS IN HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL TRANSFERS AS WELL. THANK YOU.>>MY NAME IS FROM — MEDIA. MY COLLEAGUES ARE ASKING VERY TOUGH QUESTIONS. MINE IS VERY SIMPLE. Mr. TRUDEAU IN 2015 SET AN EXAMPLE BY FORMING A BALANCED CABINET. AND WHAT WILL BE YOUR REACTION? AND WHAT WILL YOU DO IN YOUR CABINET IF YOU GET ELECTED?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT QUESTION. WE ARE VERY HONOURED TO HAVE A RECORD NUMBER OF CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR US WHO ARE WOMEN. I BELIEVE WE ARE AT ABOUT 40% RIGHT NOW OF FEMALE CANDIDATES AROUND 40% ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THAT IS SOMETHING I’M VERY PROUD. BY HAVE ENSURED THAT WE HAVE HAD STRONG WOMEN RUNNING FOR NOMINATIONS. AND WE HAVE A SYSTEM IN OUR PARTY WHERE EVERYBODY GOES THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS. SO WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN NOMINATED KNOW THAT THEY WENT THROUGH THE EXACT SAME PROCESSES AS A MAN WOULD HAVE. AND THEY ARE IN A POSITION THEY ARE BECAUSE OF THEIR HARD WORK. AND BECAUSE OF THEIR PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS. AND THAT IS ALSO HOW I WILL MAKE A CABINET OR ASSIGN ROLES IN OUR TEAM. MAKING SURE WE HAVE GOOD QUESTION OF CANADIAN SOCIETY AND RECOGNIZE GOOD QUESTIONS AT THE TABLE. I’M CONFIDENT WE ARE ABLE TO DO THAT. WE HAVE STRONG LEADERSHIP WOMEN IN OUR ROLES. RONA AMBROSE WAS ELECTED AND RAN AGAINST OTHER FEMALE CANDIDATES AND MALE CANDIDATES AND WAS ELECTED AS THE INTERIM LEADER AND LISA RAITT AND SHAWN WOMEN LIKE RECOMMEND. AND SHANNON STUB. SO I’M VERY CONFIDENT WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF VERY STRONG WOMEN AROUND THE CABINET TABLE BUT WHAT I WILL NOT DO IS KICK THOSE STRONG WOMEN OUT OF CAUCUS JUST FOR TELLING THE TRUTH AM I THINK WHILE JUSTIN TRUDEAU CAN POINT TO GESTURES THAT HE MADE — THE PHONEYNESS OF HIS COMMITMENT TO THIS IMPORTANT ISSUE IS DEMONSTRATED WHEN HE DOES THING LIKE KICK PEOPLE OUT — KICK WOMEN OUT JUST FOR TELLING THE TRUTH. SO I THINK LIKE THIS ON SO MANY OTHER ISSUES HE IS JUST NOT AS ADVERTISED.>>THANK YOU.>>Question: FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE VERY DISTINGUISHED LEADERSHIP STYLE WHICH APPEARS MANY TIMES IN THIS CAMPAIGN. ESPECIALLY YESTERDAY. WERE YOU AMAZING.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>ACTUALLY THERE ARE MANY MEDIA REPORT AND BOOKS PUBLISHED INSIDE CANADA AND OUTSIDE OF CANADA THAT OUR FOREIGN COUNTRIES WOULD LIKE TO INTERFERE IN THESE FEDERAL ELECTIONS MANY OF THEM USE RELIGIOUS GROUPS IN ORDER TO EFFECT THEM. SOCIAL MEDIA AND EDUCATIONAL PLACES. SO THEY EFFECT THIS ELECTION IN THEIR INTERESTS. MY QUESTION TO YOU, ARE THESE COUNTRIES THAT SUPPORT THE TERRORIST GROUPS WILL BE ABLE TE ABLE TO EFFECT THE FEDERAL LECTS IN OCTOBER? AND ANOTHER THING, WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THE CANADIAN VOTER WHO IS HERE FROM THE FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND THEY WANT TO PRETEND THERE IS A RELIGIOUS WAR BETWEEN THE PARTIES?>>WELL I CAN TELL THAT YOU I HAVE RECEIVED BRIEFINGS THROUGH OUR PARTY FROM VARIOUS SECURITY AGENCIES IN THE CAMPAIGN. IN THE ELECTIONS OFFICIALS WANTED TO DO EARLY ON WAS TO MONITOR THE SITUATION AND ADVISE THE POLITICAL PARTIES IF THEY THOUGHT THERE WERE SIGNS OF INTERFERENCE. INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS CAN COME FROM MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF OUTSIDE ACTORS OR OUTSIDE AGENTS. IT IS ONE OF THE THING THAT COMES WITH BEING A FREE AND OPEN SOCIETY, IS THAT WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH. WE HAVE FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION. BUT THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR SECURITY AGENCIES TO MONITOR THE TYPES OF COMMUNICATIONS COMING FROM OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTRY. ESPECIALLY DURING HIGHLY SENSITIVE TIMES LIKE ELECTION CAMPAIGNS. SO AS PRIME MINISTER, I WILL OF COURSE CONTINUE THAT PRACTICE AND MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE RESOURCES THEY NEED TO TRACK THESE TYPES OF THING.>>I’M OLD THAT ALL PARTY ARE BEGIN A BRIEFING. AND THEN WHEN ISSUES ARISE WE CAN LOOK OUT FOR ALL SORT OF THINGS. AS SIMPLE AS MAKING SURE OUR COMPUTERS ARE SECURE AND ENCRYPTED AND HEAD UP THEY SEE AN INCREASE IN TRAFFIC FROM ONE COUNTRY OR ANOTHER. BUFF OVERALL I HAVE CONFIDENCE — I BELIEVE THAT THE OFFICIALS ARE TAKING IT SERIOUSLY. THERE ARE CONCERNING TIMES. LIKE WE SAW SOME VERY HIGH UP IN THE SECURITY ESTABLISHMENT WITH LEAKING DOCUMENTS. THAT IS EXTREMELY CONCERNING. SO THERE ARE CERTAINLY AREAS THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. AND SOME ASPECTS OF THAT THAT NEED TO BE STRICKEN ENDED AND I WILL OF COURSE — STRENGTHENED AND I WILL OF COURSE DO THAT S A PRIME MINISTER.>>Question: MY NAME IS EMMA I’M FROM A NEWSPAPER. MY QUESTION FOR YOU. IF YOU GOT ELECTED, THERE ARE — IS THERE ANOTHER PLAN FOR DISABILITY PEOPLE? ESPECIALLY ITS EFFECT ON YOUNG PEOPLE. WE HEAR A LOT OF STORIES ABOUT ALL OF THOSE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE STUDENT. THEY WILL UNDER DEPRESSION FOR TOO MANY THINGS. LIKE –>>WELL YOU MENTIONED TWO VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES THERE. ONE IS PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY. WE MADE AN ANNOUNCEMENT A FEW DAYS AGO WE WOULD MAKE IT EASY TO QUALIFY FOR THE DISABILITY TAX CREDIT. UNDER THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT, CHANGES WERE MADE THAT MADE IT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT FOR PEOPLE TO QUALIFY FOR THAT TAX CREDIT. INCLUDING TYPE 1 DIABETICS THEY WERE SPECIFICALLY TARGET THE BY THE CANADA REVENUE AGENCY. WE HAVE CHANGED THE RULES SO THAT CAN’T HAPPEN. WE ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT MENTAL HEALTH IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE. WE WILL FULLY SUPPORT THE MENTAL HEALTH STRATEGY AND ENSURE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT HEALTH CARE THAT MENTAL HEALTH IS A COMPONENT OF THAT. AND JUST THE OTHER DAY WE ANNOUNCED OUR STRATEGY FOR AUTISM AS WELL. RECOGNIZING THAT MORE AND MORE CANADIAN PARENTS WITH CHILDREN WHO HAVE AUTISM. AND THAT THERE’S — RECOGNIZING THE NEED FOR FEDERAL LEADERSHIP ON THAT. SO WE CERTAINLY ARE TAKING THOSE TYPES OF ISSUES VERY SERIOUSLY. AND WE WILL PRIORITIZE THOSE IN OUR DISCUSSIONS WITH THE PROVINCES AFTER WE FORM GOVERNMENT.>>Question: SMATCHES, ANDREW SCHEER. MY QUESTION IS VERY SIMPLE. TERRORISM IS ADVOCATED WHICH FAVOURS MUSLIMS AND THEY SAY MUSLIMS WILL BE THROWN BACK TO THE HARP.>>Eric: ARE A. HOW WILL YOU MAKE SURE MUSLIMS ARE PROTECTED FROM THE FORMER INCUMBENT. A HUMAN WHO’S NAME LOOKED LIKE MUSLIM, ISLAM — WHEREAS IT IS DIFFERENT WHEN IT IS EXECUTED BY A NONE MUTTS LIMB NAME. WHAT IS YOUR POINT OF VIEW ON THIS?>>WELL I CERTAINLY AGREE WITH YOU THAT WE CANNOT ALLOW AN ENTIRE RELIGION AND AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY TO BE PAINTED WITH A BROAD BRUSH JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE — YOU KNOW COMMITTING EVIL ACT WRONGFULLY. YOU KNOW WRONGLY IN THE NAME OF A RELIGION. SO I CERTAINLY DO AGREE WITH YOU THAT ALL OF US HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO SPEAK OUT WHEN THAT HAPPENS, TO RECOGNIZE THE WORK THAT IS DONE BY LEADERS IN THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY. I’VE MET WITH LEADER, IN THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY WHO HAVE A CLOSE WORKING RELATIONSHIP WITH THE RCMP, IF THEY THINK THERE ARE RISKS OF THAT HAPPENING, THEY ARE THE FIRST ONES TO WORK WITH POLICE FORCES. SO I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITY TO SEND A SIGNAL THAT MUSLIMS ARE WELCOME IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA. THAT THEY MAKE UP AN IMPORTANT PART OF CANADA’S SOCIETY SCOUR HISTORY AND OUR CULTURAL. I HAD A QUESTION — I WAS ON THE NATIONAL NEWS SHOW MEETING WITH UNDECIDED CANADIANS. AND THE FIFTH GENTLEMAN WAS FRO. HE SAID WHERE DO I FIT IN YOUR PARTY? I SAID ARE YOU RIGHT AT HOME IN OUR PARTY. THE FIRST MUSLIM MP WAS A CONSERVATIVE MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT. THAT’S SOMETHING WE ARE VERY PROUD. SO WE BELIEVE IN THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND THE FREEDOM OF WORSHIP AND THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH. PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE HAVE A HOME IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA AND ONE OF THE GOALS I SET FOR MYSELF AS LEADER OF THIS PARTY WAS TO BUILD STRONG BRIDGES WITH THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY AND SHOW WE ARE AN OPEN AND INCLUSIVE PARTY AS WELL.>>Question: THANK YOU. HONG KONG GLOBAL NETWORK. OVER HALF A MILLION HONG KONG IMMIGRANTS LIVE IN CANADA AND ANOTHER 300,000 HONG KONG CANADIANS LIVING IN HONG KONG. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE CURRENT SITUATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS IN HONG KONG AND THE SYSTEM?>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT QUESTION. WE ARE ALL WATCHING WHAT IS HAPPENING IN HONG KONG WITH A GREAT DEAL OF INTEREST AND CONCERN AS WELL. WE RESPECT THE ONE COUNTRY TWO SYSTEMS POLICY. AND THAT MEANS THAT PEOPLE OF HONG KONG HAVE THE RIGHT TO PEACEFULLY PROTEST, TO PEACEFULLY SPEAK OUT. THAT MUST BE UPHELD. IN ADDITION WE BELIEVE THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA SHOULD HAVE DONE MORE TO PROVIDE EXTRA CONSULAR SERVICE FOR CANADIANS THAT IS SOMETHING WE ARE CALLING FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO DO. MANY OF OUR ALLIES HAVE. THEY HAVE INCREASED STAFF LEVELS AND MADE IT EASIER FOR DUAL NATIONALS IN HONG KONG TO RECEIVE SERVICES OF OF AS PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA MY VOICE WILL BE TO SPEAK OUT FOR DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHT AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND HUMAN EXPRESSION AND WE CERTAINLY DO HOPE THERE’S A PEACEFUL RESOLUTION IN HONG KONG AND IN THE RIGHTS THAT WERE GUARANTEED TO HONG KONG AND THE PEOPLE IN HONG KONG ARE RESPECTED AND UPHELD. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>Question: HI, I’M WITH BALL MEDIA. MY QUESTION IS FROM LAST NIGHT’S DEBATE. WE SAW THE NDP AND THE GREEN PARTY WOULD SUPPORT A LIBERAL MINORTISM DO YOU THINK THIS WILL EFFECT THE CONSERVATIVES IN A NEGATIVE WAY? AND IF YOU WERE TO COME IN AS A MINORITY, WHO WOULD HELP YOU FORM GOVERNMENT?>>WELL AS I SAID I AM FOCUSED ON OCTOBER 21st WINNING A MAJORITY GOVERNMENT. THAT IS A GOAL I’VE SET FOR MYSELF AND ONE I’M VERY OPTIMISTIC OF REACHING. I THINK WHAT WE SAW LAST NIGHT THERE IS REALLY ONLY ONE PARTY TALKING ABOUT GETTING BACK TO BALANCED BUDGETS AND LOWERING TAXES AND STANDING UP FOR OUR ENERGY SECTOR. AND DEFENDING — AND PROMOTING GROWTH IN OUR — ECONOMIC GROWTH IN OUR COUNTRY AND PROSPERITY BY SUPPORTING SMALL AND MEDIUM SIGHED BUSINESSES AND UNLEERING THE POWER OF THE FREE MARKET AND THAT IS THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA. SO I WILL LET OTHER PARTIES DECIDE WHO THEY MIGHT WANT TO WORK. WITH I THINK IT’S PRETTY CLEAR IF YOU WANT TO REPLACE JUSTIN TRUDEAU — IF YOU DON’T WANT JUSTIN TRUDEAU TO BE PRIME MINISTER ANY MORE, THEN ARE YOU LOOK FOR SOMEONE WHO WILL REPRESENT CANADA WITH STRENGTH ON THE WORLD STAGE. PUT CANADIANS NEED FIRST. LEAVE MORE MONEY IN THE POCKET OF HARD WORKING CANADIAN FAMILIES. THAT CHOICE IS THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY. AND AS PRIME MINISTER THAT IS WHAT I WILL DO.>>HELLO Mr. ANDREW SCHEER. MY NAME IS BE A HIM. A JOURNALIST WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY BEFORE FOR A LONG INTERVIEW WITH YOU A FEW MONTH AGO AND YOU ANSWERED MOST QUESTIONS ABOUT TRADE AND IMMIGRATION AND ALL OF THIS STUFF. TODAY I WANTED TO ASK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE. JUSTIN TRUDEAU VIOLATED A CONFLICT OF INTEREST ACT AND ALSO THE ETHICS OF CODE TWICE. AFTER THAT RECENT INCIDENT WHICH “TIME” MAGAZINE PUBLISHED ABOUT IT. DO YOU THINK THOSE ACTS WILL HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE CANADIAN VOTERS ON THE COMING ELECTIONS?>>I DO. I DO BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT CANADIANS TAKE THESE ISSUES SERIOUSLY. AND NOT ONLY DID JUSTIN TRUDEAU BREAK THESE LAWS TWICE HE HAS LIED ABOUT IT. [ Please Stand By ] . >>SO I GENERALLY DON’T WORRY ABOUT POLLS TOO, TOO MUCH. I WILL ADMIT IT’S HARD TO NOT LOOK AT THEM SOMETIMES, ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF AN ELECTION CAMPAIGN. BUT, YOU KNOW, THERE ARE SO MANY POLLING COMPANIES WITH DIFFERENT METHODOLOGIES AND RESULTS. ONE HAS UP BY 7. THE OTHER HAS US CLOSER. I DON’T REALLY GET TOO, TOO WORRIED ABOUT THEM. THERE’S ONE BIG POLL ON OCTOBER 21st, THAT’LL BE THE ONE THAT WILL MATTER. ON HUMAN RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD ABSOLUTELY WE NEED TO BE A STRONG VOICE FOR STANDING UP FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD. THAT IS WHAT I WILL DO. I BELIEVE THAT CANADA HAD A STRONG FOREIGN POLICY BEFORE JUSTIN TRUDEAU BECAME PRIME MINISTER. I DISAGREED WITH JUSTIN TRUDEAU’S DECISION TO TRY TO NORMALIZE RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE REGIME IN RUSSIA, THE REGIME IN IRAN. I BELIEVE IT WOULD HAVE SENT A STRONGER MESSAGE TO STAY ON PRINCIPLE IN THAT. I CALLED ON THE GOVERNMENT TO LIST THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION GUARD AS A TERRORIST HE WENTY. HE REFUSED TO DO. WE SHOULD MORE SANCTIONS ON COUNTRIES VIOLATING HUMAN RIGHTS. TRUDEAU REFUSED TO DO THAT AS WELL. YES, NOT ONLY WILL I SPEAK OUT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AROUND THE WORLD. I WILL ALSO MATCH THAT WITH REAL ACTION HERE AT HOME >>Question: GOOD AFTERNOON, MR. SCHEER. OMNI NEWS, CHINESE. YOU’VE BEEN MAKING A LOT OF PROMISES ALMOST ON A DAILY BASIS. I HAVE TO SAY A LOT OF THEM ARE MAKING A LOT OF SENSE. JUST EARLIER TODAY YOU ANNOUNCED THAT YOU ARE PLEDGING SUPPORT FOR THE ONTARIO LION SUBWAY EXTENSION LINE. YOU SAY THERE’S PLENTY OF TO REVEAL THE COST OF THE PLATFORM, BUT IN REALITY WE’RE BARELY TWO WEEKS AWAY. COULD YOU PROVIDE US WITH A DOLLAR FIGURE IN TERMS OF THIS FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE SUBWAY LINE? THANK YOU. >>SO ON THOSE TWO LINES, I BELIEVE THOSE TWO PROJECTS HAND IN HAND. OBVIOUSLY THE ONTARIO LINE WILL ADD CAPACITY FOR THE EXTENSION ON THE YONG LINE. WITHOUT THAT THE YONG LINE WOULD ALSO BE GOOD. IT MEANS MORE COMMUTERS ON THE SAME ULTIMATELY GOING INTO THE SAME PART OF TORONTO. WHEREAS THE ONTARIO LINE WILL ENHANCE, GIVE COMMUTERS ANOTHER OPTION COMING FROM THE EAST END OF THE CITY. THEY VERY MUCH GO HAND IN HAND. WE WILL FUND OUT AN OVERALL INFRASTRUCTURE BUDGET. THEY’RE SUBJECT TO NEGOTIATIONS. THE TYPICAL TYPES OF NEGOTIATIONS, THE PATTERN ON AGREEMENTS ON THE FINER POINTS OF THE BUSINESS CASE AND OVERALL COSTS OF THE BUDGET. ON THE PLATFORM COMING OUT, I WAS ASKED EARLIER ON THE CAMPAIGN. I SAID PLENTY OF TIME TO UNVEIL THE POLICIES WITH COSTING WITHING WITH IT. JUSTIN TRUDEAU STILL HASN’T PROVIDED COSTING. HALF HAVE NO DETAILS AND COSTING. HE SAYS HE’S GOING TO HIT NET ZERO BY 2050 WITH NO DETAILS. THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS PLAN IS BASED ON ASKING TELECOMMUNICATIONS PLAN TO DO WHAT HE’S ASKING WITHOUT ANY EXPLANATION ON HOW HE EXPECTS THEM TO DO THAT. SO MANY POLICIES DON’T HAVE ANY COSTING AT ALL. OURS WILL BE COSTED BY THE PARLIAMENTARY BUDGET OFFICER AND CANADIANS CAN SEE ALL IN CONTEXT TO MOVE TO BALANCED BUDGETS. >>WE HAVE TIME FOR ONE MORE QUESTION. >>KAY. >>Question: HELLO I’M JOSEPH LAO FROM TORONTO TV. IN RICHMOND, ONTARIO 55% PORT TO EXPORT TO CHINA. AND — IT’S SO GOOD — [ Indiscernible ]>>Question: RECENTLY THEY ALSO ACQUIRED TESLA, THE ELECTRIC CAR MANUFACTURING. ON THE OTHER HAND YOUR UNFENDLY ATTITUDE TOWARD CHINA MAY HURT THE ECONOMY. IF YOU ARE ELECTED WOULD YOU CONSIDER SHIPPING THERE A LITTLE BIT OR SEPARATING THE POLITICAL AGENDA FROM ECONOMIC AGENDA? BECAUSE WE PEOPLE, WE BUSINESS PEOPLE, WANT TO DO THE BUSINESS NO MATTER YOUR PARTY OR OTHER PARTY OR GOVERNING PARTY MEDDLES OR POLICIES. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT POLICIES. WE CARE ABOUT BUSINESSES AND OUR WELL-BEING. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE QUESTION. I WOULD DISAGREE. IT’S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT A CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT AND ALL GOVERNMENTS UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING ROBUST TRADE WITH CHINA. CHINA’S A VERY IMPORTANT TRADE PARTNER. I WANT TO HAVE GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH CHINA AND ENHANCE OUR TRADE TIES. THERE ARE TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPORTERS AND IMPORTERS AS WELL AS AGRICULTURAL PRODUCERS. CHINA IS A VERY IMPORTANT SOURCE OF INVESTMENT. WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE TWO CANADIANS BEING HELD ILLEGALLY IN CHINA. WE HAVE TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT STANDS UP FOR THEM. WE DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN A TYPE OF COUNTRY THAT LET’S CANADIAN CITIZENS AROUND THE WORLD, YOU KNOW, TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES WITHOUT ANY SUPPORT. WE NEED A GOVERNMENT THAT WILL ALWAYS STAND UP FOR CANADIANS AND CANADIAN RIGHTS ALL OVER THE WORLD. WE ALSO HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF CHINA MADE DECISIONS AGAINST OUR EXPORTS. AT A CERTAIN POINT WE HAVE TO TAKE STEPS TO PROTECT OUR EXPORTERS AS WELL. AND WE HAVE TO TAKE STEPS TO PROTECT OUR ECONOMY. I BELIEVE WE CAN DO THAT IN A WAY THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF CHINA WILL UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT. IT’S IMPORTANT TO DO THAT. WE HAVE CANOLA PRODUCERS, BEEF AND PORK EXPORTERS EFFECTED BY CHINA CLOSING MARKETS TO US. I BELIEVE IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR OUR ENTIRE ECONOMY AND ALL CANADIANS REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY DO BUSINESS TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT STANDS UP FOR CANADIAN INTERESTS AND CANADIANS AROUND THE WORLD.>>(Inaudible Question by Media). >>IF ALL THE PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED? [ Laughter ]>>YOU KNOW, IF WE CAN GET — I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER WE HAVE TWO HUMAN BEINGS, TWO PEOPLE, TWO CANADIAN CITIZENS BEING HELD IN VERY, VERY DIFFICULT CONDITIONS. YOU KNOW, THE REPORTS OF THE TYPES OF HARDSHIPS THEY HAVE TO ENDURE ARE VERY, VERY, VERY DISTURBING. AND THAT’S WILL BE MY FOCUS AS PRIME MINISTER. ENSURING WE STAND UP FOR THOSE CANADIANS AND GET THEM RELEASED. [ Applause ]>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
