Cody Payant is known as a principled accountant and passionate Canadian, who has always wanted what’s best for Canada. He sees immense potential in our province and country, despite being frustrated with decades of interventionist governments who have had their hands in everything. Until we can decentralize governance and reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty.
Cody Payant was born February 7, 1985, in Regina, Saskatchewan. As a Canadian patriot, he shares a deep connection with anyone in his riding of Carlton Trail – Eagle Creek who has faith in the ability of Canadians to make their own decisions in life and determine their own destiny.
Mr. Payant earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta before starting his practice, focusing on helping local businesses grow in his home province of Saskatchewan. In 2017 he noticed Maxime Bernier’s bid for Conservative leadership, advocating for less government, lower taxes and more freedom. Disappointed by Andrew Scheer’s narrow victory and the new “pragmatic-centrist” interventionist direction of the Conservative Party, Cody knew he needed to join Bernier within the PPC to bring the kinds of bold, conservative reforms long overdue in Saskatchewan and Canada.
Reforms like fixing the equalization formula and the subsequent welfare traps it creates, abolishing corporate welfare, ending tax redistribution schemes, invoking section 92.10 of the constitution, returning energy infrastructure projects in the national interest to the private sector to get pipelines to tidewater, deregulating industry while lowering individual, corporate, and farm tax rates, eliminating the capital gains tax, eliminating foreign aid except for natural disaster relief, putting an immediate stop to tax handouts to parasitic corporate lobbying, opening free interprovincial trade adding $130 billion per year to our GDP, introducing property rights for all Canadians and First Nations, and ending tax bailouts of failing corporations such as GM, Bombardier and others. Sadly, Kelly Block and the blue liberals are committed to tackling none of these issues, preferring the status quo, preferring to maintain the western alienating policies which send billions annually to the east via the “equalization pipeline”.
As a legislator, Payant believes strongly that legislation should be determined by Canadians and Canadians alone. Canadians have every right to leaders who unequivocally put the interests of their country first, leaders who refuse to cede sovereignty to supranational legislating of the unelected councils of the United Nations. Not only will the PPC scrap the carbon tax, they will pull out of the UN migration pact, prioritizing economic immigration over refugee and reunification of family. Cody wants the people of Carlton Trail - Eagle Creek to work less for the federal government, and more for themselves. He wants them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom.
Mr. Payant has always had a keen interest in business and self determination since growing up on his family grain farm south of Regina, and until Mr. Bernier offered Canadians an opportunity at mainstream politics done differently, had no intentions of becoming politically involved, preferring to stay out of the western alienating bureaucratic bloat centred in the city of Ottawa. Suffice to say his mind has been changed by 1000s of Canadians close to home demanding change, believing that now is the time to clean house and finally put an end to the 151 year LibCon (Liberals and Conservatives) dynasty.
There is never a wrong time to do the right thing, and Cody believes that the fear mongering “vote splitting” narrative, even if true, is ultimately mathematically irrelevant in our riding of Carlton Trail – Eagle Creek, since in 2015 Kelly Block received 26 004 votes to second place NDP candidate Glenn Wright’s 7 449. Even if Kelly’s votes were split exactly in half, Cody and Kelly would both have roughly double what the NDP candidate would have.
The time is now. For a real, principled alternative to Justin Trudeau’s liberal caucus in the House of Commons, vote for Cody Payant to represent Carlton Trail – Eagle Creek, because there’s no point in winning if the Conservatives are just going to govern like the Liberals. We need volunteers and door knockers to join Cody in every inch of our riding, from Englefield to Warman, Waldheim to Wiseton, and everywhere in between (contact info below).
Join us and donate today! Your investment will help us find volunteers to spread the party platform to all 53,836 voters in our riding, and stay strong.
Dear friends from Carlton Trail - Eagle Creek ,
This spring, I begin the most important race of my life. I've not been provided a script for this address. As a matter of fact I have been permitted to choose my own words and discuss my own ideas regarding the choice that we face in the next few months.
I have spent most of my life politically as a conservative. I recently have seen fit to follow another course. In October, our country will need every ounce of its energy to restore itself. As we know, the costs of government are all assessed upon the people. This means that the farmer is doomed to provide a certain amount of money, out of the sale of his produce, no matter how low the price, to pay their taxes. The manufacturer, the professional man or woman, the clerk, must do the same with their income.
The expenses of the government reach everybody. Taxes take from everyone a part of their earnings and force everyone to work for a certain part of their time for the government. The annual spending of our government has exceeded 420 billion dollars, while our nation's federal debt has surpassed 680 billion. These are some of the reasons why I want to cut down public expense. I want the people of Carlton Trail - Eagle Creek to work less for the federal government, and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom.
Until we can reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty.
The interventionist course of both the Liberal and Conservative governments are well documented. From the Conservative governments of Brian Mulroney and Stephen Harper, which added over 400 billion dollars to our nation's federal debt, to the industry crippling socialist economic policies of Pierre Trudeau and his son, these results are not fanciful, they are not imaginary, they are grimly actual and real, reaching in to every household in the land.
Currently they take from each family home an average of over 37,000 dollars annually, and taxes must be paid, they are not a voluntary contribution. One of the greatest favors that can be bestowed upon the Canadian people is economy in government. One of the greatest burdens: too much government in the economy.
I think it's time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by our forefathers in the true north strong and free. And as we are reminded that we don't know how lucky we are to live in Canada, it is perhaps more important to remember the immigrant who reminds us of how lucky they are that they had some place to escape to. If we lose freedom in the west, there is no place left to escape to.
And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except the sovereign people, is still the newest and the most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man. This too, is a key issue in this election, whether we believe in our capacity as Canadians for self government or whether we abandon Canadian confederation and confess that the unelected councils of the United Nations can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
It is for these reasons that I am unable to in good conscience remain on the sidelines. It is for these reasons that I joined Maxime Bernier and the People's Party of Canada in the first place in August, 2018, and it is for these reasons, that I am now announcing my candidacy as your official PPC candidate for our riding of Carlton Trail - Eagle Creek.
Freedom, Fairness, Responsibility and Respect. These are the words we have heard often over the past ten months, and these are the words we will continue to hear as we work for Canadians to restore peace, order and good governance to the House of Commons. Send me to Ottawa my friends and I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you and God bless.
