SHEDIAC – The Hon. Dominic LeBlanc, MP for Beauséjour, made the following statement regarding the fire which took place at No Frills yesterday:
“I am relieved that no patron or staff was hurt in this terrible incident. We can thank the Fire Departments of Shediac , Haute-Aboujagane and Cocagne, who rapidly got the fire under control and, once again, rushed towards the danger to help protect their neighbours and their community.
“Moments like yesterday prove we owe much to our firefighters and first responders. I am happy that Justin Trudeau has committed to putting in place a Public Safety Officer Compensation Fund, which would help the families of those who give their lives or become permanently injured in the line of duty while protecting us all.
“We can do more to help those who protect us. I often meet with firefighters, police officers, paramedics and prison guards, thank them for their service to our communities and try to determine ways the federal government can help. A Compensation Fund is needed and it’s time for it to be implemented.”

Shediac, New Brunswick – Thomas Mulcair says he supports the middle class, but he would keep Stephen Harper’s plan to give government cheques to millionaires, said Liberal MP Dominic LeBlanc.
“Mulcair tries to talk a good game but his plan doesn’t back him up. There’s nothing there. And on critical issues like Quebec sovereignty, Thomas Mulcair is saying different things to different people all over Canada,” said Mr. LeBlanc, pointing to recent media reports about Mulcair’s contradictions:
“NDP Leader backs easy path for separatists to tear apart Canada… In the rest of Canada, Mulcair’s move to entice Quebec nationalists should be seen for what it really is – nakedly self-serving.” (Bob Hepburn, Toronto Star, July 4, 2015)
“Thomas Mulcair tap-dances around NDP contradictions… The NDP leader weaved his way between competing positions that threaten to get him trouble in one part of the country or another… policies that are winners for them in Quebec, are toxic for them in the rest of the country.” (National Post, July 20, 2015)
“We don’t know which Thomas Mulcair will show up today in New Brunswick, but local families will see they’re not getting the straight facts from the NDP. Mulcair’s lofty talk about the middle class isn’t backed up by any meaningful plan,” said Mr. LeBlanc, noting five specific examples:
“Liberals would give families more money to help with the high costs of raising their kids and give middle class Canadians a $3 billion tax break by making our taxes fairer – Thomas Mulcair’s NDP opposes both,” concluded Mr. LeBlanc. “Justin Trudeau is the only one with a plan for real change to grow the economy, help the middle class, and bring back fairness.”

SHEDIAC – The Hon. Dominic LeBlanc, MP for Beauséjour, made the following statement today on the 260th anniversary of the start of the Great Upheaval with the decision to deport the Acadian people:
“Today marks 260 years since the Great Upheaval started with a decision taken by the British authorities at the time, on July 28th, 1755., to deport the Acadian people. Today, we remember the families that were ripped apart and the numerous people who lost their lives.
“While the objective was to put an end to the Acadian people and its identity, the Acadian community has rebuilt itself, redefined itself and endures to this day, stronger than ever. The number of Acadian symbols through my travels across the country are proof of the pride and tenacity of this people without borders that courageously came back to live close to the lands where they originally settled.
“In less than a month, all Acadians will be celebrating their National Holiday and I cannot think of a better response, 260 years later, than to show that we are still there, and proud of it.”
