MP David Tilson holds consultations with local Cattlemen’s Association

January 28, 2021
Orangeville, ON – Member of Parliament, David Tilson, met with Ontario Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) Director, Bob Gordanier, of Mono, on January 26th, to discuss ways to create jobs and economic growth as Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Government plans for the next phase of Canada’s Economic Action Plan. 

Mr. Gordanier shared with Mr. Tilson details of the OCA's proposed Risk Management Program and their desire to partner with the federal and provincial governments, to help sustain local food production and strengthen the rural economy.

“The economy remains the number one priority of the Prime Minister and our Government,” said Mr. Tilson. “Our Government will continue to focus on creating jobs for workers, retirement savings for seniors, and the financial security of all Canadian families.” 

Launched in 2009, the Economic Action Plan has so far contributed to the creation of more than 440,000 new jobs since July 2009 and helped the country emerge from the global economic crisis faster and stronger than most other major industrial countries around the world. 

“It is clear that the Economic Action Plan is working,” continued Mr. Tilson. “It has created jobs and provided financial security to Canadian families through the worst global recession since the Second World War.” 

Over the coming months, as the next phase of the Economic Action Plan is developed, Mr. Tilson, the Prime Minister, and his Government will travel to small towns, communities, and cities across the country to listen to and seek the views of Canadians on the next phase of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.
