It’s no wonder the Liberals are trying their best – and failing badly in the process – to smear the Conservatives with ridiculous claims.

Remember back in 2015 when Trudeau said this – Growing the economy “from the heart?”

 

No wonder that was roundly mocked by average people and those who actually understand how an economy works. His message to the world was to “let government spending do the work”
How’s that working out for Canadians? Not too well, according to the Fraser Institute.
“No Canadian prime minister has spent more money (per person, inflation-adjusted) or accumulated more debt (per person), outside a world war or recession, than Prime Minister Trudeau,” estimated the Fraser Institute in April 2019.

Remember “budgets will balance themselves?”  That’s not worked out too well either.

 

“In 2015, the Liberals promised to balance the federal budget by the next election, in 2019, and to add no more than $20 billion to the debt. Not only will there be no breakeven this election year, but the burden of campaign promises, and servicing of the excessive debt they have piled on, will guarantee massive deficits for some time.

 

 

Economist Don Drummond – who wrote the Drummond report that took the former Wynne government to task, warned the Trudeau government that Deficits are fine if you can ultimately get back to balance, but that test is a long way off. Infrastructure is fine if it makes economic sense. But will the right projects be selected?”  That was 2016 and this is now 2019 and Canada is on the cusp of a federal election. Throughout Trudeau’s mandate, the media tried their hardest to spin it that the Trudeau government was doing fine economically but the reality was much different.

Here’s a prime example of Liberal math that makes economists and accountants heads spin.Financial Post columnist Diane Francis calls this type of Liberal  trickery “fun with figures.”

“A report said that Canada’s economy lost 24,200 “net” jobs in July, the second month in a row with job losses, and the unemployment rate rose to 5.7 per cent. But the figures are misleading. That month, 69,300 private-sector jobs were lost, and the “net” figure was derived from subtracting the creation of 17,500 public sector jobs and an increase in self-employment by 27,700.
Who counts self-employment as “jobs”? Arguably, another 27,700 self-employed people are those who have lost their jobs and hope to support themselves somehow.
In August, a report said Canada “gained” 81,000 jobs, but two-thirds, or 57,200, were part-time.”
Former Conservative leadership candidate and businessman Kevin O’Leary said Trudeau is a “young man who had no managerial history.”
It’s no wonder Liberal candidates are jumping off the “Good Ship Liberal” – they know that Trudeau’s disastrous economic policies are bad for Canada and Canadians.

“Here at home, we see large amounts of capital investment leaving Canada while tax structures, federal infrastructure problems and politics prevent us from getting goods to market, and deter companies from expanding and undermine our competitiveness. For the first time in many years, Canadians don’t believe that tomorrow will be better than today and that their children’s future will be than theirs,” she said in a statement after crossing the floor.“Beyond our borders, our position remains vastly diminished. Our foreign policy is disconnected from our trade relationships and our ability to deliver on our defence commitments is undermined by politics,” she added. “We must recognize that foreign policy, trade, defence, and our economy all depend on each other and can’t be viewed separately.”

Is this what Canadians actually want – to be led down the Liberal garden path once again when we have seen this over the past four years?

 

 

“Now we know the “sunny ways” masked the same old, autocratic, cronyism that has allowed the Liberals to dominate the civil service, crown corporations, favour Quebec, and reward their banking, legal and corporate sympathizers. And we also know that Trudeau is as much of a free enterpriser as was his late father who drove Canada’s economy into the ditch after wrecking Alberta’s oil industry.”

 

Justin Trudeau followed the advice of Gerald Butts, a serial job-killer who advised Ontario to spend recklessly and ram through a “green” agenda that has harmed its engine of growth, auto manufacturing. Then the two targeted Canada’s engine of economic growth, oil and gas.”

 

Since Trudeau was elected in 2015, four provinces have elected provincial Conservative governments to deal with out of control Liberal and spending debt and economy killing regulations that are hobbling everyone.

 

On October 21st 2019, dispatching the federal Liberals as these provinces have done is the only option to help Canada recover from four years of Trudeau and his Liberals.
