Donald Trump’s election to the presidency is really bad news for the federal Liberals. It is equally bad news for their provincial counterparts in Ontario and for the NDP wrecking-ball of a government in Alberta.
Trump is not bad news because his victory has caused progressives’ hair to spontaneously combust (although that’s been fun to watch). And his rattling of politically correct elites in the U.S. threatens to generate a spillover rattle in Canada.
But that’s not why he is trouble for them.
Trump is a danger to our federal and provincial governments because two of his policies with the greatest chance of being implemented quickly are corporate tax reduction and a no carbon tax.
