Canadian families hit with ‘interest rate uppercut’ due to liberal policies: Poilievre

Speaking during question period in the House of Commons on Wednesday, Conservative Party Leader Pierre Poilievre referenced a Bank of Canada interest rate hike announced earlier in the day, saying that “Canadians were hit with another interest rate uppercut today after inflationary deficits by this Liberal government.” Associate Minister of Finance Randy Boissonnault responded by recalling Poilievre’s past “irresponsible” advice regarding cryptocurrency investments and said the government is focused on eliminating student loans, making it more affordable to buy a house, and supporting workers.
