Time for change in October

Time for change in October

When they came to power in 2015 Justin Trudeau and the Liberals promised “sunny ways.”

It was all going to be blue skies, green grass and sunshine. They said they would do things differently. They have done things differently and things are now much worse.

Chrystia Freeland commented on our “strained relationship” with China. We also now have strained relationships with the United States, Saudi Arabia, India, and most of our trading partners in the Pacific Rim (after Trudeau failed to show up at the first TPP signing ceremony).

The Liberals also have strained relationships with the majority of the provinces in Canada, along with indigenous groups, veterans, small businesses and the list goes on. The past three years of the Trudeau government have given us photo-ops and selfies, and not much else other than blaming Steven Harper for just about everything that has gone wrong.

The rest of the world is now aware of, and tired of, Mr. Trudeau standing at the pulpit lecturing us, we can only hope the voters in Canada have arrived at the same conclusion so that we can relieve Mr. Trudeau of his duties in October.
