Justin Trudeau’s “progressive” trade agenda — the insistence on including gender parity and Aboriginal issues in trade negotiations with the United States — is being cited as a barrier to progress by senior figures in the U.S. administration, according to people familiar with the matter.
Donald Trump’s top dealmakers are said to be complaining that Canada is not negotiating and that, in the event of a collapse of the North American Free Trade Agreement, a bilateral deal with Mexico might be easier than one with Canada because it is willing to be flexible on U.S. content requirements.
“None of this plays in China. They can’t stand this stuff, and Canada’s small.”
The mantra of our prime minister, the majority of his continuing holidays spent in the non-middle-class-affordability of Lake Louise and Revelstoke, is that his government is fighting to better the middle class.
This runs counter to his own personal life, of course, but what can one do if born of silver spoon and trust-fund comfort, and just happen to get elected as prime minister of your country?
The leopard has its spots; Justin Trudeau has his own markings.
My theory- Justin Trudeau saw this meeting with Boyle as just another way to insult Canadians, it’s an established pattern. Justin is a narcissistic sociopath, the laws do not apply to him, witness his dealings with the Mohammedan con man the Aga Khan. Justin makes every effort to call us Islamophobic for daring to question Muslim immigration as he trumpets a one way version of “diversity” that means the destruction of our society and its heritage and values. The Morneau scandal speaks volumes of his arrogant sense of entitlement and his latest “Christmas attire” photo revelation tells us everything we need know of his contempt for Christianity. His meeting with Boyle was just the latest effort to slap Canadians in the face for not being on board with his globalist friends in their effort to remake Canada into an impoverished 3rd world state.
Men’s socks are now officially an accessory thanks to the “uprising” of colourful designs being worn, Country Life has declared two years after branding lilac socks ungentlemanly.
2017 was not kind to the PM nor his government. And that last press conference? In Star Wars Yoda-tongue: Ill, it will bode for him.
On first reading, Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson’s report on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s two family vacations to the Aga Khan’s private Bahamian island paints a portrait of a man with little understanding of government conflict-of-interest rules — and little interest in learning them.
How could it be that Trudeau didn’t recognize immediately that it would appear fishy for him to accept a free, tropical vacation from a billionaire who has lobbied several previous federal governments for grants to help his charitable projects in Canada and elsewhere?
First Nations with good financial track records will no longer be required to account to Ottawa for every dollar of federal money they spend on things such as health-care, education and social services under a new program being proposed by the Trudeau government.
The plan to guarantee long-term funding with a minimum of bureaucratic oversight for 100 First Nations communities by April, 2019 is the first concrete step in what Jane Philpott, the Minister of Indigenous Services, says will be a new fiscal relationship with Canada’s Indigenous people.
It is also a significant shift from the policies of former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper who raised the ire of chiefs by passing legislation that required First Nations to submit their audited consolidated financial statements and information about salaries and expenses to the government for posting on the Indigenous Affairs website. The Liberal government repealed that law shortly after taking office in 2015.
Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is already hot on popularity charts but his following is growing day-by-day. On his 46th birthday, we decode Trudeau’s hotness and why he is a girl’s dream man.
In 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau learned a lesson about the power of social media.
The PM’s most viral tweet of the year – by far – was sent out on a January weekend, welcoming refugees to Canada.
Trudeau doesn’t have business meetings. He has relationship sessions. And he sees his role ‘as ceremonial in nature’.
Could it be that he just doesn’t get it?
Just in time for Christmas, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau landed on the naughty list of the federal ethics commissioner, who ruled this week he violated ethics laws by accepting two expense-paid trips last year to the Bahamian island retreat of the Aga Khan.
Democracy Watch sent a letter to the Commissioner of Lobbying late Wednesday, urging her to investigate whether Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini Aga Khan IV “violated the Lobbyists Code by giving Prime Minister Trudeau and Liberal MP Seamus O’Regan the gifts of trips to his island home.”
Justin Trudeau says a lot of stupid things, but this week, the Prime Minister has outdone himself.
