    "Justin Trudeau Is Not Your Friend"

    Everybody loves Justin Trudeau. But his policies are bad for workers, the environment, and struggling people everywhere.

    1. Excellent read

    Though nothing new to me in it. He’s a hip con-man, and like the article says; he’s everything wrong with future of centre left politics.  Media savvy, optics and identity politics is all he’s got. The Liberals finally found their own Barack Obama at just the right time. Lester Pearson had more character in a toenail clipping than this guy could ever aspire to have in a million years.

    2. Good article

    He’s pissing me off. His approvals for Site C and ramming through pipelines absolutely goes against what he said about First Nation consultation and respect for the environment, and they are deal breakers.

      3. Okay I'm late to the show but will continue this thread

      I was going to start a thread on this topic but I checked and you already have one………

      Canadians are justifiably appalled by the plight of thousands of employees and pensioners who are being victimized by the bankruptcy protection maneuvering of Sears Canada. Thousands have been laid off and even more stand to lose the severance, benefits and pensions that they earned, while Sears pays millions in bonuses to executives and managers.

      It was also noted that during the Liberal government regime of the early- and mid-2000s, Liberal-dominated committees in the House of Commons and in the Senate took turns studying reforms to bankruptcy and insolvency legislation. In both cases, the Liberals opted not to stand up for the interests of workers and pensioners.

      But after being turfed from office, the same Liberals changed their tune. Then-Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff vowed that his party, if re-elected, would change the law to protect workers and pensioners and ensure they would no longer be “left at the back of queue in insolvency and bankruptcy.”

      “It’s not right. We agree with you,” Ignatieff famously told thousands of laid-off Nortel workers in 2009. Following the Liberals’ return to power in 2015, that promise appears to have been all but forgotten.

      So it is particularly galling to hear the current Liberal government express sympathy for “the difficult circumstances” now faced by Sears workers and retirees. At least one Liberal MP has unabashedly chastised Sears and publicly called on the company to “do the right thing” for pensioners.
