If someone who’s supposedly bad does a whole bunch of really good things, then just how bad could he really be?
For the past three years, the NDP has been howling about how the prime minister broke his promise on electoral reform. Well, it turned out to be undeliverable. He appointed an all-party panel to consult Canadians. The panel found no consensus, and the idea was dropped. And, in hindsight, that was the right decision, because every time proportional representation is offered, Canadian voters turn it down, as they just did, again, right here in B.C.
So if the prime minister had forced it through parliament, it would have been against the wishes of the majority of voters.
In the meantime, the Liberals managed to re-negotiate NAFTA, legalize cannabis (creating an entire new industry) and lifted 300,000 children out of poverty with the Canada Child Benefit, to name just a few of many accomplishments.
Why don’t we look past all the noise about Trudeau and focus on the positive changes he has delivered?
