Ottawa- Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP, Mark Strahl, rose in the House of Commons today to speak in favour of Bill C-38: Jobs Growth and Long-Term Prosperity Act. The bill would implement key elements of the Government's Economic Action Plan 2012.

"Although the economy remains fragile, Canada continues to outperform our major trading partners. The measures contained in our Action Plan will further strengthen our economy and create jobs and long-term prosperity for all Canadians," said Strahl.

Strahl highlighted measures in the bill that would encourage responsible resource development, ensure the sustainability of social programs, and balance the budget in the medium-term through modest spending reductions.

"While other countries have slipped into recession in a rush to balance the budget and others see their credit ratings slashed, Canada is moving to a balanced budget at the right pace and our economy continues to grow."
