Why do Canadians keep supporting this error-prone government?


Recommended Posts

I think people are just more inline with what the Liberal Government is about, not really caring about the errors and such since we all make mistakes in life, most feel it is a waste of time dwelling on them for weeks at a time.

When the younger generation wants social issues, climate change, equal rights, and indigenous peoples issues to be addressed they vote Liberal. These same people are less interested in cutting taxes and services and are not focused on the western Canadian energy sector.

Quebec will support him because he's one of theirs. The English media adore him because they're all progressives - and it's 2021, don't you know? They will sugar coat anything he does wrong and focus

SMR's are the hope of the future. Small, inexpensive and simple to run and maintain. Automated, even. These are under development now. Canada would do well to get onboard the SMR development trai

Come on Johnny, give us a break, these are not small mistakes but huge gaffs, and scandals, more than any other PM in history...and they are not to be wiped away because we all make a few mistakes, these are the leaders of the nation, and we expect more from them, they are paid very well not to make mistakes, they surround themselves with subject matter experts so they make sound decisions and not mistakes. It is this type of thinking and response that show where your moral values are. 

Take a minute Johnny, and tell us all what has the liberals done in regards to climate change, equal rights, indigenous issues. I know they have made lots of promises it is what they do, here is a novel idea, lets vote for a party that actually puts promises to paper and takes some action.

So in closing these are the same people (liberals or the left side of the house) that have their hands out singing show me the money, and can not understand that nothing is free and it all has a price, more services , calls for more taxes, or higher deficit which someone has to eventually pay down, and that starts with your generation....Other people who are fiscal responsible, and have paid their own way in life, who want less government, less taxes, less services and don't want a drama teacher spending more than 400 bil in just over a year so you can have a few dollars in your pocket. They vote for the right...

Last rant, the fossil fuel sector which has been attributing a large portion of this nations GDP, paying a large chunk of all those social programs you love and is under extreme pressure to reduce drastically it activities, and when that happens , something is going to have to replace that source of income , and today there is nothing in the wings that can do that ,the only option is taxes

Canada's 2020 deficit was over 380 billion. That's over $10,000 for every person in the country. We still don't have a budget yet Trudeau is announcing over  14 billion on infrastructure spending and 600 million to buy back guns. It will be two years next month since this government has had a budget. Fiscal accountability no longer exists in this country.

The Liberals have addressed none of these issues. They have merely made mouth noises and patronizing gestures.

People in Greece weren't interested in economic issues for a long time, too. Then suddenly they found that when you owe more money than you can repay the good times stop really, really abruptly. Keep borrowing money long enough with no repayment and 'the younger generation' are going to find out what life is like with a government with no money.

The Left hasn't done a damn thing for the environment but pretend they care about it.

Yes and this is way more than what conservatives did under Harper.   In our sorrowful state of affairs we have to be happy with inaction in the face of real aggressive actions against the environment.

You mean like trying to reform environmental regulations so it didn't take ten years to get a new project started?

You think you can't have a study and decide on what environmental damage a project would cause in less than ten years?

Sure you can, especially when you decide you need no study.

At one point it was decided what habitats will be protected.  Harper changed that to suit his agenda.  No habitats are protected.

The answer to the question of the thread is that we are a stupid, stupid people and we demand a stupid, stupid and incredibly corrupt government to measure down to our standards.

Is that your best Jack Webster imitation?

Let those that have committed no errors cast the first stone. If running a government with out errors, (and everyone has had errors) were so easy we would all be rich and in perfect health.

If only those that criticize had practiced what they preach in the past than they would still be on power!

What Harper did was leave it up to the provinces to do some things rather than duplicate everything they were already doing.

I'm not really sure what point you're trying to make here. We shouldn't criticize the government when they screw up because 'government is hard'?

If you seek the high positions of power then you have to accept the responsibilities that go with it. And when you screw up and it hurts people or costs money you damned well need to have that pointed out. That's especially true of politicians since none will ever admit they did anything wrong.

Shallow, phony gestures and virtue signalling, you mean?

This doesn't seem to even begin to describe what Harper did.

But I am done with him and Kenney and any other conservative.

So on top of blowing the vaccine rollout, the federal government is now compromising immigration standards.  Overspending and bizarre, counterproductive priorities...

" While an individual typically needs a minimum score of 400 points or above to make the cutoff, the lowest-ranked person invited in the latest round only had a score of 75. (The immigration department posts the results of each draw on its website.)"

One more example of the liberals' lying to Canadians. and i get it we all make mistakes, but this guy... this guy has made more than his share...remember he planned and designed operation MADUSA By himself, in 2018 he lies to the defense committee that he knew nothing about Vance's transgressions, no one but two complaints being made, and then we have him once again denying that he knew of the complaints about Vance ....  not to mention That as the minister who help craft Operation OP Honor designed to clean up the military sexualized culture....he failed to take any action at all instead leaving these 2 women hang in the wind.. Countless men and women have had their jobs ended because of this OP honor.. only to later find out the two bosses have broken all the rules with out consequences ... 

What does he know about the latest CDS, is this now a part of the job description to become the CDS, and well we already know what it takes to be a liberal... Burning Canada to the ground, you can't make this shit up... even Hollywood could not write it any better.

Making liberals across the country, proud

No, not surprised, what does surprise me is that liberal voters can not see anything out of the ordinary...this behavior is expected from all liberals...and it makes me sick.

Here is another article about defense spending , I'm pretty sure it has not even raised an eye brow....

Matt Gurney: COVID shows why Canada can't depend on its friends when the chips are down (msn.com)

After the British and French signed an armistice they then negotiated for final terms of the peace treaty. Much to the surprise of Quebecois who had fought on France's behalf here France gave away Quebec to the British because they thought there was more profit to be had in Haiti.

After the British and Americans had declared an armistice in the War of 1812 they then negotiated the final terms. The British put the border where Canadians would not have, and ceded territory we would have rather kept. Because it wasn't a big deal to them. And since Canada had no real say well... the border is where it now is.

The Americans already disagree with some of our claims in the Arctic. Are they going to fight Russia on our behalf? Unlikely. And if they and the Russians decide to negotiate who gets what Canada's interests are going to be distinctly secondary.
