Bela Kosoian is a candidate for the People’s Party of Canada in the riding of London-Fanshawe. Bela has several degrees including international law and relationships from UQAM University, as well as a Masters’ degree in Political science from the UWO and a law degree from the University of Ottawa. Bela has mastered 5 languages.
Bela is a strong woman of great conviction and she will fight for all of Canadians, but before getting involved in politics and joining the PPC, Bela was a semi-professional chess player and the women’s coordinator for the Canadian chess Federation for a period of approximately 5 years. Bela will serve the London Fanshawe riding in every capacity she can. Bela is an advocate for the rule of law and personal freedoms, and it's due to these beliefs that she chose to join the PPC.
Bela is looking forward to serving and fighting for the interests of people in the London-Fanshawe riding and in Canada as a whole.
For her, Strong and Free is more than a slogan, it's a way of life.
- The People’s Party of Canada (PPC) advocates for the rule of law, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press, freedom of association, personal responsibility and fairness.
- The PPC has 4 principles: respect, fairness, personal responsibility and freedom.
The PPC is the only party on the federal level that recognizes:
- the need to cut taxes;
- put Canadians at the center of how money is going to be spent;
- create jobs by allowing for pipelines to be built;
- eliminate trade barriers between provinces in order to better serve Canadians and deal with supply management monopolies.
Benefits of voting for PPC:
PPC puts Canadians first: more freedom and smaller government in Ottawa and more prosperity for all provinces. Federal government will use its exclusive power according 91 (2) to regulate internal trades to force provinces of mutual recognition. Provinces have to handle their own affairs, by eliminating trade barriers between provinces and creating more competition, so provinces can prosper.
- If Bela Kosoian is elected as MP for London-Fanshawe, she will put all her energy and competences towards implementing the promises made by the PPC. If there are issues not contained within the existing PPC platform that a constituent wishes to raise, they can address Bela Kosoian directly to raise it in parliament as a private member’s bill;
- Canada is accumulating huge debts and the PPC is the only party proposing to balance the budget within 2 years;
- The PPC wants to reduce income taxes down from 15 % to 10 % on $100,000, and reduce corporate and farm taxes to 10 %;
- The other parties have no proposals to reduce personal income taxes and for corporate taxes the other parties are only proposing a rate of 15 %;
- Immigration issue is a most hot topic during this election
- The PPC proposes to reduce immigration from 350,000 to 100,000-150,000;
- In support of Canada’s struggling economy, we need immigrants that are going to fill the job requirements of the next decade and beyond; we welcome immigrants but our policies have to prioritise those who will meet our economic needs;
- Nowadays only 26 % of economic immigrants are chosen because of their skills and qualifications;
- The PPC wants to reform our point system to meet the economic needs of our country;
- The PPC wants to impose a temporary limit on the number of foreign workers in Canada to make sure they are not replacing Canadian workers;
- To ensure our immigration system is not being exploited by foreign nationals, we propose to change our laws in order to make the phenomenon of birth tourism illegal;
- With mass immigration the projected cost of living in Canada will increase, housing prices will become inflated, and we will require more costly infrastructure upgrades and expansions - all of which will result in increases in government spending;
- For London-Fanshawe we have to help small businesses prosper by looking at the real costs of protectionism and government red tape. For the London-Fanshawe area, which is a highly industrial district, we have to attract more businesses by cutting taxes, eliminating interprovincial trade barriers and to give companies the means to select best candidates based on merit.
The People’s Party of Canada proposes to :
- expand trade with other provinces and with other countries;
- develop new technologies and explore emerging market that will create new jobs;
- making sure that we work in best interest of Canadians;
According to the Fraser Institute Canada’s debt is skyrocketing and with no plan to balance the budget or curb government spending, Canada’s federal finances are a cause for grave concern.
The program spending of the federal government is growing at an annual rate 6.3 per cent. If there is no movement with government to balance the budget within the next 3 years, we will likely end up with a prolonged deficit like we saw from 1965 to 1995.
Rise of the national debt is due to the rise of provincial debt. Federal debt between 2008 and 2015, increased by 34% as the provincial debt increased by almost 87%.
Only PPC proposes to balance the budget within 2 years.
Industrial sector :
The industrial sector is without competition and innovations:
- Airline industry operates with 2 companies;
- Canadian Banking industry only has 6 banks;
- Internet service provider operates under the umbrella of 4 companies;
- Wireless telecommunications industry operates between 3 companies, with minimal market penetration from smaller service providers.
The PPC proposes to eliminate trade barriers between provinces and open the markets to competition to break up the monopolies and revive the Canadian economy. Together we are strong and free.
