Justin Trudeau promises to grow the economy ‘from the heart outwards’ — whatever that means

“We’re proposing a strong and real plan, one that invests in the middle class so that we can grow the economy not from the top down the way Mr. Harper wants to, but from the heart outwards,” said Trudeau.

    Justin Trudeau has two things going for him and they are his looks/charisma and his name. Other then that he has nothing. No ideas of his own, no thoughts of his own, no policies of his own and no beliefs of his own. He is an empty vessel or like a shallow pool with no deep end since he has no depths. Justin knows this and he is campaigning like this. He got to be the leader of the Liberal party solely based on the fact he is the son of Pierre Trudeau and now he plans to run for prime minister based on his looks/charisma. He still hasn’t announced a platform to run on and without any substance looks/charisma will not get him (fortunately) to become Canada’s next prime minster.

      His advisers are working on the platform. Stay tuned. . .

        His followers don’t care if Justin has a platform, pant,pant , -anymore than they care about the Nation called Canada.

        He’s just gonna dust off the Red Book from 1993 again.
        Like they have for twenty years.

  • David Murrell

    As one poster on the NP article says, what Trudeau means is that he intends to grow Canada ecomically, from the “heart” (Quebec/ Ontario) “outwards” (to the West and to the Maritimes). This “central Canada first” mantra should earn Justin brownie points with the media cartel and the powerful unions.

    • Clausewitz

      It appears he thinks that the growth of Canada will emulate the rot of Central Canada destroying the rest of the country as well.

  • Frances

    Obviously he believes the the old cartoon which shows a large cow standing on a map of Canada, feeding off the West, being milked in Central Canada, and doing you-know-what to the East.

  • Shebel

    Has Justin clued into the Fact that he is actually in the ‘for real’ World and is attempting to be the Prime Minister of Canada ?

  • One more time:

    the middle-class in Canada is alright. The middle-class in the US is being wiped out by Obama.

    Stop stealing Obama’s political points, Justin.

      soon to be no middle class in Ontario

      another 1.9% tax hike yesterday

      • If there is any bright spot about Wynne’s proposed tax is that it will hurt those who voted for her.

          no.. public unions exempt from new pension tax scam

    There is only one way that works to grow the economy, any economy in fact, and that is for the government at all levels to get out of the way. The NDP and Liberals, both being socialists can never abide by that. Even the CPC seems unable to get completely out of the way, but at least goes part of the way.

  • Edubeat

    its a contradiction in terms that says Neil Young can sing (he can’t) and I guess he’s about the same intellectual level as Trudeau 2.0

    Time for a musical interlude to get mellow and forget the politics

    But this isn’t the first time he’s gone hippy dippy. Anyone got a link to his speech to students where he goes all cosmicy?
