First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit was implemented by the Conservative Government

BURNABY, BC – On January 21, 2019 Jagmeet Singh gave a press conference outlining his plan for housing affordability across Canada.  His plan? Supporting the Conservative Party’s First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit.

The First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit was introduced in the 2009 Budget.

This Conservative plan kept more money in the pockets of home buyers, and helped Canada dig out of the depths of a global recession.  Finance Canada estimated that $120 million in taxpayers’ dollars were saved in 2018 due to the Conservative tax cut.

Jagmeet Singh is using the Burnaby South by-election to save his political life, and now he’s trying to sell Conservative ideas as his own.

Unlike the Trudeau Liberals or the NDP, only Jay Shin will lower your taxes, take less off your paycheque, and help you get ahead, not just get by.
