Like so many Canadians, I am tired of the liberal media always covering for the Trudeau Liberals while continuing to rant and rave against the former Stephen Harper Government every chance they get.
In reality, the Trudeau Executive Branch is the least transparent and least accountable governing party in my living memory. I mean, given the trail of Trudeau Liberal broken promises, they are making fools out of those who voted for them.
I mean, think back to the years 2014 and 2015. Remember when the liberal media yelled “corruption” because a Harper PMO staffer named Nigel Wright paid $90,000 back to the taxpayers using his own money?
Now compare that to the underlying message in the above photo related to the fact that Trudeau spent $127,000 of taxpayers dollars to go on a holiday to a private island. If that had been Mr. Harper, we’d still be hearing about the “corruption.” I mean, I can recall the former PM going to a hockey game with his daughter and the media went nuts over his use of the Challenger Jet — and the cost was much less than the $127,000 Trudeau spent.
Remember also when the Trudeau opposition and his ever-loving media blamed the Harper PMO for all of the charges facing Mike Duffy regarding his living expenses. I mean, can you just imagine Trudeau taking any blame for the current crop of “independent liberal senators?” NOT!
And, yes, we all remember that when we found out that Duffy was acquitted of ALL charges and that there had been no Harper Government corruption, the Trudeau Liberals had already been elected.
So, what do we know now — two years later? We know that the Liberals were elected on the basis of promises they never intended to keep. The biggest whopper was that the country was in the midst of a recession and that the Trudeau Liberals could fix it all by having a little deficit.
Well, not so it seems. In fact, wage growth had been growing by leaps and bounds during Harper’s final years. Which means, that the actual “sunny ways” were during that time period, not now. For example, check out William Watson’s column in the Financial Post from November 16th, 1017. He writes:
- “From 2014 to 2015, StatCan tells us, ‘The real average income of all tax filers rose 2.6 per cent.'”
- Over and above that, “‘the bottom 50 per cent of tax filers’ — i.e., those struggling to get into the middle class — ‘saw a 3.4 per cent increase in average total income.”
Watson also states: “This was before the Trudeau government raised top tax rates in the name of fairness, a tax share twice that of your income share and 22 times your population share being deemed not fair enough.”
I agree with Luke Rebello, a McMaster student who wrote an editorial in a September issue of the Huffington Post titled “Canadians didn’t sign up for Trudeau’s scandals and bad policies.” No, they didn’t but that is what they got.
Which reminds me of that old expression: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. The crux of the matter is, then, that the next time Canadians vote (on or before October 21, 2019), they need to plan to vote for a conservative.
