This guy sounds like almost as big a scumbag as our PM. The Liberals just plain suck.
It's something all Liberals aspire to be, a scumbag comparable to Justin Trudeau.

But alas, there is NO bigger scumbag than Justin Trudeau, and never will be.

Justin - give Canadians our freedom!! Enough!
Matthew Lau: Let Canadians choose their own future

Ask somebody who has devoted his entire life’s work to repairing shoes and you will find that his answers to the deepest philosophical questions about life and society are somehow reducible to some aspect of shoe repair. How could it be otherwise? Repairing shoes is all he knows. Similarly, a dentist who has spent 40 years drilling teeth and filling cavities is likely to affirm that the greatest force of destruction in the world is Coca-Cola. And why not? His life’s work has been to repair the damage to teeth caused by people consuming too much sugar.

This sort of cognitive bias is present in all professions — doubtless even journalism — but seems to most afflict people who are completely committed to fighting climate change. Everything about how they understand the world is filtered through the lens of catastrophic man-made climate change. “People don’t understand,” Catherine McKenna said in an interview earlier this month with David Reevely of The Logic, “that climate change is literally an everything issue. It’s a health issue. It’s a national-security issue. It’s an Indigenous issue. We just saw Lytton burn down,” she said, referring to a wildfire whose cause has yet to be determined. “But it’s really an infrastructure issue.”

SNIP

It is curious that McKenna would point to spending as evidence of successful climate policy. She sold the Liberals’ carbon tax to the public by affirming that pricing emissions is the most efficient way to fight climate change, yet pricing and spending are decidedly different policies. McKenna also presents the government’s regulatory initiatives as evidence of wisdom, lauding the “no more internal combustion engines by 2035” diktat as a “signal to the market” — in reality, it is an attack on the market, not a signal — that will help Canada reach its Paris Agreement commitments. But she fails to present evidence to justify her praise for the initiatives she helped lead.

SNIP

McKenna speaks of spending money to build the future Canadians want, but she is doing no such thing. Instead of letting Canadians spend their own money to build the future they want, she is spending their money to build the future she thinks they ought to want, which is really just the future she wants. It is a future in which Canadians are less prosperous and free.
Justin Trudeau is a knuckledragging narcissist with many stinking albatrosses around his neck. He is definitely on the wrong side of history. Can't wait to vote this bum out of office!

So, how is Trudeau doing?

Thanks to Trudeau's careful planning, we lead the world in vaccinations. This is in spite of having no vaccine manufacturing capacity because the Conservatives sold-off Connaught Labs.

One third as many COVID deaths as the US or UK per capita.

Trudeau gave us programs right from the start like CERB to protect Canadians' financial health. Americans lost their houses, stood in line for food and waited a year and a half for support from Congress.

Trudeau has given us strong growth and job creation while protecting our credit rating.
In a report late Monday afternoon, S&P said it was affirming its top-notch rating with a stable outlook because "Canada's public finances were well positioned entering the pandemic, enabling a strong policy response to contain its negative effects without weakening sovereign creditworthiness."
Canada now ranks as 'Best Country in the World' thanks to Trudeau.

No wonder Canadians are on the cusp of awarding Trudeau another majority as the other guys circle the drain at 25%.

We may lead the world in vaccines NOW , but we sure didn’t in the beginning. We were MONTHS behind the other G7 nations in getting our vaccines. All thanks to Trudeau Liberal incompetence!


How many Canadians died needlessly while we waited?

And oddly enough the Libs won't disclose the cost of their late vaccine purchases

Actually, we were in the same slow start G7 boat as Germany, France, Italy due to the Pfizer plant retooling. The outliers were the US and UK because they manufacture the vaccine.

But we've pulled far ahead of them now, especially the US where 45% have not received a single dose and the variants are now on fire. People are dying at a terrible rate.

I know some of you hope for failure, but Trudeau beat all of the original targets promised, and then beat them by a wide margin.

Thanks, Trudeau! Four more years!

Canada has now surpassed the U.S in the number of people vaccinated against Covid, but that has nothing to do with any initiative by Trudeau.. In the U.S anyone that wanted to be fully vaccinated was fully vaccinated months ago, the only reason Canada has now surpassed the U.S is because of the huge numbers of Americans that are refusing to be vaccinated.

I was reading the online version of The Province newspaper, when I came across an article pointing out that Jagmeet Singh’s high polling numbers compared to Trudeau’s indicate that the NDP may garner enough votes to deny Trudeau a majority.

The article went on to discuss how, for many, the likeableness or otherwise of the Leader frequently influences the way people vote, more so than the policies that Leader is proposing.

Wacky, but true. One has only to read through the posts on these forums to realize that.

The article then pointed out how, despite the Trudeau Government’s obvious incompetence, there are many who still intend to give them their vote
There is an abundance of evidence that the Liberals are not particularly good at being the government. A new report by the parliamentary committee on Government Operations, which was tabled late Wednesday, is damning about a multi-million dollar contract for security screening equipment at Canada’s embassies around the world that was awarded to a state-owned Chinese company, Nutech. The decision to hand over a sensitive information technology/security contract to a company ultimately answerable to the Chinese Communist Party just because it was the lowest bidder raises all sorts of questions about the procurement process, not least of which is why the Communications Security Establishment is not involved in such supply chain decisions unless it is asked to be.

The committee recommended that value propositions other than price be considered in future and that state-owned Chinese enterprises be prohibited from bidding on such sensitive federal contracts.
https://theprovince.com/opinion/john-iv ... a5f2e06480

Given the Trudeau Liberals love affair with the Chinese Government, I have to wonder if they’ll heed the committee’s advice. But, given the number of folks who still see Trudeau as their “hero”, maybe Canadians don’t really care much about things like National security anymore.

Trudeau is decimating our Parliamentary system of democracy, completely ignoring our ethics laws, and allowing the Chinese Government access to our state secrets. But I don’t hear much Public outrage about ANY of that.

Why not?

Man! It feels great to be #1 and thank you JT for helping us do just that. I don't there is PM in History of Canada that can say that they were the PM when Canada was ranked #1 in the world.

Canada is the No. 1 Country in the World, According to the 2021 Best Countries Report

For the first time, Canada is the No. 1 overall country. Japan and Germany finish Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, while Switzerland, the previous No. 1 overall country, falls to No. 4. Australia remains as the No. 5 overall country followed by the United States, which rises one position to No. 6 overall.

Canada ranks No. 1 in quality of life and social purpose. It is also perceived as having a good job market, caring about human rights and is committed to social justice. Additionally, the country finished No. 1 in being viewed as not corrupt and respecting property rights.

Social justice is a global ambition. Eighty percent of global citizens feel aligned with social justice, a broad term that refers to movements calling for addressing racial and gender inequities, while 76% also agree that a country is stronger when it is more racially and ethnically diverse. Canada and the Nordic countries are viewed as the most committed to social justice, while the U.S. sits at No. 18. And on the specific topic of racial equality, the U.S. only manages to achieve No. 69, behind both China and Iraq.

Women are viewed as effective leaders. Eighty-three percent of global citizens believe there is a leadership crisis in the world today. The majority of respondents view women leaders in a positive light, as 68% agree that countries led by women tend to be better managed.

A nation's perceived agility is the most important driver of strength in 2021. Across the countries measured, agility accounts for per capita GDP variations the most – underscoring that it is essential for any country to be seen as adaptable, progressive and responsive. The new Agility subranking carries the greatest weight among the 10 subrankings. The U.S. leads the world in perceived agility, but is not among the top 10 in adaptability, coming in at No. 13 on this attribute.

The influence of conspiracy theories. A majority of respondents (75%) agree that conspiracy theories are a threat to society. However, 39% believe that governments have made up the COVID-19 pandemic to control their citizens.

Just reading on Castanet that Covid cases are spiking in America, and wondering WHY Trudeau has chosen this particular moment to reopen our border to American tourists?
Across the U.S., the seven-day rolling average for daily new cases in the U.S. rose over the past two weeks to more than 37,000 on Tuesday, up from less than 13,700 on July 6. Health officials blame the delta variant and flattening vaccination rates. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 56.2 per cent of Americans have gotten at least one dose of a vaccine.

Cross-border tourism is a big income for both countries, and boosting the economy is high on the priority list everywhere. It's nice to see things achieving another step closer to "normal". I'm okay with this as currently entry is available only to fully vaccinated travelers. The spikes in the US, and likely soon to follow in Canada, appear to be restricted to un-vaccinated people.

Then you should be thankful that JT gave a consistent message of encouraging people to vaccinate and not be an anchor in that effort like someone in the US was.

It's not how one starts it's how we finish and save live!! Way to go JT!! :130:

Fully vaccinated travellers can still catch and pass the virus on. All the vaccine does is lower their chance of developing symptoms, and/or requiring hospital care.
