Reality Check: Trudeau’s claim Harper slashes funding to balance budget falls flat

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has accused the Harper government of slashing funding to seniors, veterans and Aboriginal Affairs last year in order to balance the books just in time for Canadians to head to the polls.

But Trudeau’s statements don’t add up…

    That underbite is so dreamy.

    They’ve all had increases above the (admittedly faulty) rate of inflation.

    He’s not the only Liberal to spout moronic piffle today. Mississauga Mayor and former Liberal MPP Candidate Bonehead Bonnie has just sent out notices today informing the homeowners of residence’s in Mississauga that henceforth on January 1st they will be taxed for rain. That’s right fucking rain. She’s using junk science claiming that because of global warming there’s more rain and it is damaging the infrastructure of the drainage system in this city. Homes will be taxed on a ratio of five tiers depending on the square footage of your roof. This will be over and above your normal water usage and disposal fees. Basically what it comes down to is that the incompetence of Hazel McCallion is once more coming back to bite us on our asses. Here inability to plan for and take action on infrastructure projects mean that once again the taxpayer takes it in the teeth here. Couple that with our present mayor claiming there will be no raises in taxes on homes. She’s trying to claim that the mill rate is not going up, however the assessed values on our homes have been raised on average 25%. Since property taxes are the mill rate X assessed value, in effect property taxes are going up 25% this year. When isn’t a Liberal lying to you?

    Facts and turdeau don’t even have a passing relationship with each other.

    I almost spat out my coffee the morning, seeing that it was Global news which published the above post, an excellent post exposing Trudeau’s blatant lies. I thought virtually all the media — save Sun News, and perhaps the Naional Post on a good day — were on the Liberal Party payroll.

    Shiny Pony is this maladroit as a drama teacher playing a simple snake oil salesman reaching for the brass ring? What would be in store for us if he ever became PM?
    (Shudder to think.)

    Everybody knew the budget would balance. This happens automatically. Budgets balance themselves.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      Yeah and it happens in the middle of the elections only to buy votes .

        Lord Turdeau of Sussex would never stoop to buy votes.
