Using the politicized Canada Summer Jobs grant, the Trudeau government recently gave funding to a controversial hate preacher who’s the subject of a criminal complaint.
The Islamic Humanitarian Service in Kitchener, Ont., was approved by the Trudeau government to receive the grant in 2018, according to the government’s public registry of approved organizations.
May was not a good-news month economically.
Canada shed 7,000 jobs, bringing the drop in employment since December to nearly 50,000 jobs. Projected growth in our GDP was downgraded to under 1.5% for 2018. And Statistics Canada found Canadian firms intend to invest less than they did last year in new locations, new equipment, new hires — the fourth straight year of decline.
“I’ve argued that if we want to have a trade agreement, our overarching strategic objective must be not to protect the dairy farmers, not to protect the telecom, not to protect banks, not to protect airlines,” Lee said. “Our strategic objective should be to obtain clear complete access to the totality of the U.S. $20-trillion economy without any tariffs whatsoever and with a dispute mechanism.
“And if we have to put those protected industries on the table as bargaining chips, so be it,” he said.
Canadians who think Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is standing up for Canadians against U.S. President Donald Trump over dairy tariffs have it wrong. Trudeau is standing up for Quebec against the Rest of Canada. It is Trump who is standing up for Canadians.
Canadians are also wrong to think the U.S. has been unreasonable in the NAFTA negotiations, as would be evident if not for our sense of entitlement. Americans don’t owe us a living and they do owe it to themselves to look after their own.
It started as an angry response to the latest giveaway from Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Just a few days ago, our prime minister earmarked $3.8 billion of Canadian taxpayers’ money to fund girls’ education overseas.
I wrote a comment on Facebook’s Help Canadians First page when someone posted the story at the The Hill Times.
“And 30,000 of our people are without a place to sleep every night in this country. Disgusting!” I wrote.
Several hours later, I received a response that floored me.
“Like Me,” a homeless Canadian wrote.
Since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau refuses to tell Canadians the costs they face because of his national carbon pricing scheme, here’s an expert assessment likely close to the numbers he’s keeping secret.
Yet, the Trudeau government has not arrested him.
A hate preacher calling for the genocide of Jews on the streets of Toronto, or an evangelical church group trying to feed the hungry – guess which one got the summer jobs grant funding from the Liberals?
In an interview from Owen Sound, Ryan Brown, 16, said Trudeau has been good at recognizing the LGBTQ community and their events, as well as initiatives by young people, but the call on Wednesday was still unexpected.
I think what U.S. President Donald Trump is doing with all his anti-Justin Trudeau bombast is seeing whether he can make Canada blink first in trade negotiations. He’s trying to frighten us into thinking we might lose easy access to the U.S. market – a move that would be disastrous for our economy – in the hope we’ll give more concessions in any renewed Canada-U.S. free trade deal.
Will Trump walk away from a trade deal with us entirely? I doubt it. But he wants us to believe he might so that we negotiate from a position of weakness.
I was puzzled, truly puzzled at what Justin Trudeau could have said during his closing news conference to set Donald Trump off. I watched long enough to be bored that our PM was repeating himself, saying the same old things that he had said before.
So why would Trump get so angry that he would go on a Twitter tirade and threaten to bring on new tariffs on Canadian automobiles
Following fast on the heels of using hockey arenas, hotels and buying $7-million buildings to house the homeless and refugees, Toronto’s shelter officials have come up with yet another bright idea.
I’d like to introduce you to Toronto’s version of a refugee camp — one which will cost $10-million and will be comprised of pre-fab structures erected on vacant city property.
You can say one thing about this year’s G7 that you couldn’t say about most of the previous ones: it was newsworthy. Sunday gave interested parties and observers the opportunity to react to and analyze the bad feelings and ugly words that erupted after the G7 meeting of world leaders in Charlevoix.
And there was a lot to analyze, because Sunday was like those tell-all shows The Bachelor/Bachelorette does after the finale, so the contestants can say what they really think of each other, in case their passive-aggressive antics during the competition didn’t make that clear.
“While Tuesday’s vote was just a motion, the fact the PM and his cabinet voted for it tells you it’s basically now government policy. What exact form that policy takes and when it will be put into place remains unclear.”
“Just a motion” -That’s all you need to know.
This was simply posturing.
