Duffy, Walin, Brazeau, the Ford brothers, record deficits, and over 300,000 temporary foreign workers taking jobs away from over 1,300,000 unemployed Canadians; how could Canadians ever forget the sound judgement of Prime Minister Harper? One could say it has been a fun ride, except that it has been a huge embarrassment for all Canadians. Sometimes it seems like we are all caught up in the script for Hangover Part IV. And just when you think you have seen it all, Mr. Harper goes on a book signing tour. Someone, anyone, please wake me up from this nightmare on Wellington Street.
Meanwhile Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau continues to recruit Canadians, young and not so young, to join the movement to return Canada to a fair and just society. And as Liberal governments have always done, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government will restore fiscal discipline at the federal level while implementing made in Canada solutions that will have a positive impact on our devastated middle class. He will restore our international reputation so that young Canadians–and Americans–will once again travel the world and proudly display a Canadian flag on their backpacks. Tax reforms will be implemented that respect the need to support our businesses while ensuring that everyone pays their fair share. Finally, plans will be developed and implemented to deal with long-term issues like healthcare, globalization, and retirement income security. And, as always, decisions will be made based on evidenced-based research and not some extreme right-wing ideology.
Mr. Harper will certainly be remembered for his judgement. Afterall, no one will ever forget the images of Duffy accepting cheques from Mr. Wright and the Conservative Party, or the images of a crack smoking mayor in a drunken stupor, men Harper has counted as friends and allies; these are images fit for the Ford Nation, not ours. Let’s just hope that the Tories script is now complete. It has simply been too painful to watch as we continue to experience the decline of one of the world’s greatest countries.
