A principled Conservative policy would challenge Trudeau’s climate propaganda with truth – by Gwyn Morgan (Financial Post – May 10, 2019)


“Last year, global greenhouse gas emissions grew by an estimated
2.7 per cent. So if Canada’s economy had simply ceased to exist,
our 1.6 per cent of global emissions would have been replaced in
just seven months. These are irrefutable facts.”

In choosing to mislead Canadians on climate change, the Liberals are basing their election campaign on a known lie

As the federal election approaches, the Trudeau Liberal government’s record has become increasingly more difficult to defend. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s promise in the last election that he would run only “modest” deficits has burgeoned into a national debt increase that is bigger per person than that racked up by any government in Canadian history, outside of a major war or a recession.

Trudeau promised to reduce taxes for “middle-class” families, but a Fraser Institute analysis calculated that 80 per cent of middle-class families are paying taxes at least $840 higher per year.

Then there’s Indigenous reconciliation. After a bungled inquiry into missing and murdered women left Aboriginal families angry and disappointed, what was left of the Trudeau government’s reconciliation agenda was then demolished by their sanctimonious attacks on and the firing of Jody Wilson-Raybould, a widely respected and Indigenous former attorney general.

Trudeau’s attempts to build greater trade with China have tanked, damaged by naïve attempts to rope Beijing’s autocratic leadership into joining his “progressive” trade agenda, and that was before China unleashed trade (and other) retaliations in revenge for Canada’s arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou.

Meanwhile, the new NAFTA deal still isn’t signed and high U.S. tariffs on steel, aluminum and forest products continue to hurt Canadian industry.
