Its solution to the housing crisis lies in the easier issuance of building permits and the reduction of construction taxes. He thus wishes to encourage municipalities to build more housing.

We are going to make a major reform of the tax system: lower, simpler, fairer.

A quote from Pierre Poilievre

This message resonated in the room where the gathering took place.

A smaller federal government for larger Quebecershe said in his speech.

In an interview, Pierre Poilievre also commented on the forest fire situation in the country as fires rage in Eastern Quebec, on the North Shore.

He believes that the provinces should better coordinate their resources to fight fires and he thinks that the federal government should play a more active role. The Conservative leader assures that a possible Conservative government would be compatible with environmental protection.
