Trudeau's Economy Of Ruin
Over the past couple of months, Justin Trudeau has been sticking his nose into ridings and hand picking the Liberal candidates of his choice, instead of having a fair vote and letting riding members pick the candidate as he promised. His meddling has gotten him into hot water with Christine Innes, filing a $1.5 million libel suit against him over bullying allegations, and lot of grumbling from inside the Liberal Party. For the voter, Trudeau's dictatorial attitude toward the riding members and public is just another nail in the coffin of our freedom to choose who represents us in parliament. It's also a scary indication of how Trudeau would govern Canada if he were to become Prime Minister.
The problem that I see with Mr. Trudeau is that after a year as the Liberal party leader, we still don't know what he stands for. When you think about PM Harper, he's about jobs and the economy. But when you think about Trudeau, it's a blank. So what does Trudeau actually believe?
Well one thing we know for sure is his belief and admiration for China's dictatorship. Now, I can't tell you if Trudeau has ever been to China, but I have. I can say with some certainty that his statements on China going green and solar are somewhat far-fetched, to say the least. In fact, Chinese coal production of 3.66 billion tonnes at the end of 2012 accounted for nearly half the global total. China has also been adding 160 new coal-fired plants to the 620 operating now. The smog is endless.
“There is a level of admiration I actually have for China, because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar,” Trudeau stated when asked which nation’s administration he most admired.
China's dictatorial political system is not a system for Canadians to admire and copy. Trudeau's admiration for these types of regimes goes counter to everything that made Canada the great and free nation it is today. His belief is truly misguided, and it's a danger to Canada.
Trudeau's economic beliefs became apparent at the 2014 convention in Montreal. He appears to be following Obama's path, which has put the US on the road to ruin with its massive national debt of over 17 trillion and growing. Trudeau believes, like Obama, that budget deficits are a good way to grow the economy, and that we should not be afraid to go further into debt. Trudeau believes big spending, intervening in provincial jurisdictions and centralizing the Federal government is just what Canada needs. Justin Trudeau is once again proposing a continuation of his father's failed policies. Harper, on the other hand, believes creating jobs , improving the environment for business through free trade deals, reducing debt and red tape and staying out of provincial affairs is the way to further our prosperity, which so far has proved correct. A new study showing Canada's middle class, that was substantially behind the US in 2000 (under the Liberals), is now farther ahead than the United States and most other nations.
Mr. Trudeau's beliefs and understanding of economics is flawed, just like his father's and Obama's. This has become painfully obvious over the past year and could turn into a real threat to Canada's well being.
With Trudeau's hand picking of Liberal candidates, such as Adam Vaughan, to run as Liberals, it has become clear that Trudeau and his socialist beliefs, like Obama, will take an already vibrant and prosperous Canada down the same dead-end path as the US. Hopefully, Canadians believe in freedom and prosperity and will not let this happen in 2015.
