Trudeau, Pipelines & Destruction of Canada’s Economy
Trudeau Liberals’ policies harming Canada’s economic prospects
The Trudeau Liberals campaigned heavily in 2015 on improving the economy, particularly for middle-class Canadians. This is a laudable goal and one with which we agree. Unfortunately, many of the policies introduced since the Liberals were elected have restrained economic growth. As the Liberals stressed during their time in opposition and now in government, policies must be evidence-driven, and evidence is mounting that the government’s approach isn’t working.
Trudeau’s dismal record – where will it lead?
If the rest of the media were honestly revealing his many miscues, as the Sun has done, Justin Trudeau’s poll numbers would be much lower. What is saving Trudeau, mostly, is an ineffective Official Opposition Party led by Andrew Sheer and the fact the NDP is still floundering under its unknown new leader.
Trudeau’s top priority has been legalizing pot, while he and Finance Minister Bill Morneau have been subject to ethics investigations.
Justin Trudeau is wrong: Diversity isn’t Canada’s strength
It’s one of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s favourite turns of phrase: “Canada’s strength comes from our diversity.” In his official statement after the alleged terrorist attack in Edmonton he invoked it, and whether the occasion is celebratory, tragic or anything in between, he never misses an opportunity to say that diversity is our strength. He’s made it his brand identity, because the line’s a political winner.
But it misses something about what makes our society strong, and what Islamist-inspired terrorists, fascists on the right and so-called anti-fascists on the left all seek to destroy.
Trudeau government to buy Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain for $4.5-billion
The Trudeau government is taking an extraordinary step in its push to ship more oil sands crude to global markets and will buy the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan for $4.5-billion after the company lost interest in an expansion project beset by fierce opposition from environmentalists, Indigenous groups and the B.C. government.
Can B.C. really stop the Trans Mountain pipeline, and how can the federal government make sure it is built?
‘If B.C. wanted to get really bloody-minded about it, it could play constitutional whack-a-mole,’ says an expert in energy and constitutional law
B.C. First Nations plan large demonstration to stop Kinder Morgan pipeline
Trans Mountain says it is confident project can be built with respect for environment
B.C. First Nations groups are hoping to throw another wrench in Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline by amassing Indigenous people and their supporters on Burnaby Mountain to further delay the project.
Members of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation are calling for a mass demonstration on Burnaby Mountain in March. They expect hundreds of Indigenous people and their supporters to join from across Canada.
