Justin Trudeau the Worst PM Since Pierre Trudeau?

Culture is the shared values, history and experiences of a people who grew up together and who, by and large, shared so many, many cultural touchstones of childhood, youth, adolescence, of growing up here, of what we all experienced together or separately. What it felt like, what we did and thought and learned and were taught growing up in Canada. And no, it wasn't all identical, but anyone who grew up in Canada would recognize so many things that they had shared with others who had grown up, even a thousand miles away. It all produces a similar mentality, a similar mentality and common customs and values and beliefs. No unanimity, of course, but a basic, core centre you'd find the great majority of people agreeing with.

Thanks, I think that's a good description.

Trudeau didn't do any better this week when he told us that diversity leads to 'a form of entropy' - meaning a gradual decline into disorder. I thought he said diversity was our strength. I think it's more likely the issue here is that Trudeau doesn't know what entropy means. and no one asked him to explain.   Guess his new slogan is now 'entropy is our strength'

He also came up with a new word  "responsibilizing." when he was speaking to Deloitte partners about leadership. We are going to need a new dictionary soon.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that. Canadians prefer intelligent people to run their country. That's why 84% don't like him.

There'in lies the problem. More people voted against these criminals than voted for them, but our useless don't need  a real majority to be elected system put them in power

Has the incumbent PM ever been challenged in his own party for leadership in order to remove him as PM? I guess not. Perhaps in Canada a party remains loyal to its man as PM as long as he is PM.

Not so in Australia. Yesterday the incumbent PM was ousted as party-leader and therefore as PM as well. A fourth time this happens within ten years.

I dont think that is a very good system. A party-leader who has led his party to an election-victory should be very difficult to remove as party-leader and PM against his will or at least there should be new elections as soon as possible.

A useless tit needs to be given the heave ho

What is Trudeau and Freeland protecting, you ask? Quebec and it's dairy farmers but of course. I can bet that is the stumbling block in these NAFTA negotiations. If the french cannot get their way then Quebec could go down and they will be allowed to take the rest of Canada down with them. After all was it not our prime mistake who said way back when that Canada is better off with Quebec in it, and if Quebec did separate he would go live in Quebec. Everything in this country is all about La Belle Province.My opinion.  :( 

We should have gotten the vote to get rid of the lilypad hoppers. Not the vote for them to stay or go

That's easy to say, but, if the Government loses a vote, they fall. there would likely be an election. I agree, party leaders have too much power but if you were an MP, would you want to go through the expense of an election every few months?

Losing a vote should not bring on an election. Kiboshing stupid ideas Is simply good governing

Losing a vote means the Ministry has lost the confidence of the House. The Government must resign and the Crown must then determine if another Member can form a government that will have the confidence of the House, or if the writ must be dropped.

And '' job laddering'' When he said he wants to tie in small business grants to hiring immigrants and preferably women, which you need to promote faster so they can experience job laddering.

The budget is a good ex. If you and your partner could'nt agree on a budget do you get a divorce? Politicians are supposed to be acting in our best interests, but they don't every vote should be what the constituants want and need. Stupid ideas and bullshit need to be voted down without triggering an election

Justin Trudeau's government keeps getting hammered....this time by the OECD:

 

Quote

Even as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau escalates his campaign for a Canadian seat at the UN Security Council, a new international report has warned that his record on foreign aid spending is weaker than that of his predecessor.

Mr. Trudeau’s latest promise of an extra $2-billion for foreign aid over the next five years will fail to restore Ottawa’s aid spending to where it was in 2012 under the government of former prime minister Stephen Harper, according to the report by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

OECD criticizes Canada for cutting foreign aid

 

...and this guy wants a UN Security Council seat ?     Dream on !

In a recent report, he estimated that the Trudeau government’s spending on foreign aid as a share of national income is lower than any federal government in several decades. By this measure of aid performance, it has been “the worst government in a generation,” he said in the interview.

After telling Canadians and veterans that veterans are asking for more than what the country can afford, it turns out that Trudeau and his government have left $372M earmarked for veterans unspent since taking office in November 2015.

Quote

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has left more than $372 million meant to help veterans and their families unspent since taking office in November 2015, Global News has learned.

The news comes seven months after an Edmonton town hall at which Trudeau publicly admonished some veterans groups fighting the government for improved benefits, saying they were “asking for more than we are able to give right now.”

Yet according to documents obtained by Global News, the Department of Veteran Affairs (VAC) – under Trudeau’s leadership – has failed to spend all the money given to it in each of the past three years – something Trudeau and many other Liberals slammed former Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives for when they were still in office.

It's despicable and shameful how the veterans are treated in this country.

 While in opposition, Liberals called this practice "stealing" from veterans.  Now they are the gov`t it's just "an administrative process."  hypocrites much

One day our vets/ first responders/ police  will become an issue for the rest of the country....and they will demand their fair treatment.. Anything but liberals in 2019....

These three groups are not at all treated the same.  Police are paid very well, and don't need much education to make six figures pretty quickly where I am from.  My friend married a cop and they are retired in their mid 50s and making great money.  Vets aren't treated very well, however you can retire very young on a small pension from what I understand.  I'm not sure what you mean by fair treatment here.

Canada's core identity and shared experiences include....lots of American television and other Yankee media...especially real Super Bowl® advertising !

Go culture !!

Canada's main shared experience of the last century was HNIC, and the #2 isn't even close.

That shared cultural experience is fading fast though, as people who come to Canada now still have access to all the shows and sporting events that they had back home via the internet.

Lol. It's a new facepalm moment for Trudeau every day. He's similar to Trump from the diametrically opposite sides of the spectrum. 

Trump embarrasses Americans by being "brash" and putting America first, Trudeau embarrasses Canadians by being a super-pansy and putting every country, religion and culture (aside from the US) ahead of Canadians.

You won't have to worry about making 6 figures in the military, unless of course your a General, The military pension is actually pretty good when compared with average salaries' in say the Atlantic provinces, depending on what rank you have achieved, and how long you served....the higher the rank the more pension you get, the average corporal makes approx. 60 k, If he makes it to 20 years is pension will be based on 50% of his wages, or 30 k gross, after taxes it becomes a lot less...I say "make it" that far because most do not, military life is not for ever one, there is plenty of injuries, mental stresses that push a lot of young soldiers out of the military, those soldiers with less than 12 years get return of contributions....what they paid into pension they will receive a lump sum....not sure on the size of the  sum is, but it is not much. but that is not what the problem is ,the pay and pension is fair, when compared to other civilian jobs....pension amounts are based on time served : 20 years =50 % , 25 years =60% 30 years =70 and 35 years = 75% of wage. soldiers must retire at age 55, unless your job is deemed critical then age 60 is the max....  Try and keep up with an 18 year old running when your 55 years of age....not many accomplish it....when you compare them to the total intake of military personal.  

Where they are not treated fairly is when you get injured, the military does not have workman's comp, you get hurt and it is career ending your only recourse is to apply to Dept of VAC, a civilian panel of various professional will deem the merits of your case, Note most of these people have no idea what a soldier does everyday, on or off the battle field...So it is up to the member and his council, a lawyer to convince this group of civilians hire by vac for this one case to determine your case merits and how much they will award the soldier in regards to pay out....with a max payout of 360 k , "however that payout is very rare"...Now this might sound like a lot, but remember your injuries are career ending , which means you are most likely non employable in civey street.  360 k needs to last a life time, unless your condition gets worse then you can be re assessed and get another payout, much much smaller of course....

Under the system the cons squashed , a soldier was given a monthly check for life.....normally with a career ending injury it could be 12 to 1400.00, per major injury, ya your not going to get rich off it ….there are other benefits you may be entitled to such as snow removal, or grass cutting, free prosthetics, wheel chairs, and your entitled to stay in a vets hospital once your ready for it.... the Cons seen a win fall of savings by giving a once in a life time payout....it would save bils, every year….

Yes the liberals have put bils back into soldiers hands....by bringing back the life time payment, but is is still based on the 360 K that is the max payout....they lied to vets now only receiving maybe 4 to 500 a month for life, per major injury.....yes they have added other benefits as well, but the vets do not want those benefits, they want the old system of medical pension back....

Not to mention long waiting times to see medical specialists, or mental health professionals, for instant a soldier who has already attempted suicide will get jumped to the front of the waiting que....they will have an initial appointment normally a couple of hours with a mental health professional, then might wait 6 to 8 months for follow up appointments....same with physical injuries, I might be years before they deem to send you so a specialist for treatment....

Soldiers would just like to be treated as the rest of Canadians are when injured.....

1. It sounds good to me.  There are pretty much no pensions in private employment these days.

2. That sounds awful.

3&4. It sounds like the Conservatives were worse to the soldiers in the scenario you mentioned, and yet most military types seem to hate the Liberals.  ok...

5. That's just Canadian quality service... a.k.a. the cruel and heartless bureaucracy.
