Canada has had a great run under Stephen Harper. Unfortunately, it ended today. One of the purposes of conservative governments is to bring the liberals back to reality. It doesn’t look like Justin Trudeau, the new PM, wants to go anywhere near reality:
Trudeau had promised to cut taxes for the middle class, raise taxes on the wealthiest 1% and boost government deficits to stimulate Canada’s sluggish economy.
The politics of envy were successful up North. Unfortunately, we will only have a year to evaluate the outcome before the US election. Will envy be a winning edge in the US in 2016?
Thanks to Stephen Harper for all he has accomplished. We see the wisdom of Washington and the 22nd amendment. US Presidents make their mark positively or negatively and then leave the stage.
