Michelle Rempel and her colleagues are in Ottawa today after making the announcement on Sunday morning via Facebook.
“You guys [fans] always tell me, we need you to fight, we need you to fight for you, well guess what, we’re on our way to Ottawa on a Sunday Morning to get ready to go, Dan has been working so hard this summer, Martin’s been out, like, I just wanna give you a sense of how fired up we are, and how ready we are to go, and the force that’s about to hit Justin Trudeau and his stupid, ridiculous Canadian ending policies, so, just want to let you know that when you elect conservative members of parliament, we stand against tax increases, we stand for creating jobs and economic growth in Canada, and we don’t stand up for ourselves like Justin Trudeau has been swanning around the world, going to Caribbean islands and all of these sorts of things, this is why we’re in it”
Rempel has been using the live video feature on Facebook to connect with her fans in to most honest and direct way giving her the chance to become viral faster than ever before.
The message she gives using Facebook is very direct and forward unlike other politicians giving her page tremendous reach.
Her Facebook page is nearing 60,000 likes, more than the two most famous female politicians in Canada over the last 3 years, Ontario liberal leader Kathleen Wynne who sits at nearly 56,000 likes, and Albertas NDP leader Rachel Notley who sits at only 49,000 likes.
The 37-year-old Member of Parliament is is in Ottawa today and vows to fight for taxpayers against Justin Trudeau’s tax change proposal.
The proposal calls for a progressive tax system which works like a ladder, small businesses will pay more taxes if they earn more than $150,000 per year, the very first step of the ladder.
The Trudeau government argues the changes will close loopholes small businesses take advantage of and put more money into the economy of the middle class.
Michelle Rempel went live on Facebook to announce her trip to Ottawa after the parliament had a long break.
