A Conservative government would cut federal "corporate welfare" by $1.5 billion each year, leader Andrew Scheer said Wednesday, in one of the first proposals the party has put forward to cut spending.

Speaking to reporters at a barbershop in Hamilton, Ont., Scheer said he wants to end subsidies to wealthy corporations that "don't need the help."

A Conservative government, he said, would establish a new criteria to ensure business-subsidy programs create Canadian jobs.
