Liberal victory bad news for economy #elxn42

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau says Prime Minister Stephen Harper isn’t doing enough to keep Canada’s economy from dipping into recession.

He blames Harper and the Conservatives for the loss of 400,000 manufacturing jobs in Ontario (never mentioning that more than half of those losses occurred when the Liberals were last in charge in Ottawa).

Instead, Trudeau proposes to follow the lead of Ontario’s provincial Liberals under premiers Dalton McGuinty and Kathleen Wynne.

In other words, he’s going to run big deficits, increase taxes, expand government and spend billions on “green” energy alternatives as a way to jumpstart the national economy.
