HARPER'S ECONOMY - "The Worst Since World War II"

New TV Ad by Canadians United For Change

OTTAWA, Oct. 8, 2015 /CNW/ - Canadians United for Change (http://www.canadiansunitedforchange.ca/) today announced that it will begin airing TV ads throughout Canada as part of their Third Party campaign, urging their fellow Canadians to vote against Stephen Harper's Conservative Government .

Under ten years of Conservative leadership, Canada's economy has dramatically underperformed and hurt hardworking Canadians.

The script of CUC's new TV ad, "Worst," is below in its entirety.  To view our ad, click here:  www.canadiansunitedforchange.ca.

Prime Minister Harper [CPC Policy Conference, 2008]: "We will emerge stronger than ever before."

Voice Over: "Ten years of Conservative talk…and the worst economy since World War Two."

Harper: "Our campaign platform laid out additional steps to move Canada forward."

VO: "Worst job growth. 1.3 million out of work. Worst job quality."

Harper: "Our early and decisive action has mattered."

VO: "Only G7 country in recession in 2015. Six straight deficits. The Conservatives are not working. It's time for a change."

According to the national economic study, "Rhetoric and Reality: Evaluating Canada's Economic Record Under the Harper Government," issued in July 2015:   "Since the initial election of the Harper government in 2006, and especially since it attained a majority mandate in 2011, Canada's economy has consistently disappointed. Across a wide range of core indicators (job-creation, growth, productivity, incomes, indebtedness, and more), this government has presided over what has indisputably been the weakest era in Canada's postwar economic history."

The same study further noted:  "The Harper government ranked dead last among postwar prime ministers in seven indicators, and second-last in another six. In the remaining three indicators, Harper never ranked better than sixth. Overall, Canada's economy performed worse under Stephen Harper than under any other postwar prime minister."
