Conservatives' disastrous trade record:

Conservatives' disastrous trade record:

  Canada's trade balance has gone from a surplus of $18 billion in 2006 to a deficit today of $67 billion;

- In 2011, Canada had a merchandise trade surplus of $900 million. In 2012, we have a merchandise trade deficit of $12 billion;

- In a study of 18 countries, Canada ranked LAST in terms of current account performance.

On objective and comparative criteria, the Conservatives are simply ruining Canada's trade performance...

 My name is David Murray and I am currently on City Council in the City of Pitt Meadows British Columbia.
I ran Federally for the New Democratic Party in 2011 in Abbotsford and with the great team we had in place had the distinction of being the only riding in Western Canada that doubled our NDP vote!
I am the Editor of the Pitt Meadows Today Community Online Newspaper which together with its sister papers the Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Langley Today are receiving 250,000 hits a month!

My family goes back to the CCF-NDP party circa October 1935 as my father "Bud" Murray worked on Tommy Douglas's first campaign!

I am a union activist for CUPE and sit as the Secretary-Treasurer of the Fraser Valley District Council and am on the executive board of the Fraser Valley Labour Council (CLC)
