The extent to which Trudeau and the Liberals are ruining the country is almost beyond comprehension.
Canada is a country that could be run on autopilot.
We have a well educated population.
We have a massive amount of natural resources.
We have the foundation of Western Civilization to build upon.
We have strong trade and security ties with the world’s largest economy and most powerful military.
We have provinces that – at least on paper – have significant autonomy and thus shouldn’t need much federal intervention.
Thus, a federal government could be successful simply by following the principle of ‘do no harm.’
Keep taxes low, let provinces largely do what they want, ensure our military and national defences are strong, make sure the justice system keeps dangerous criminals in jail, keep immigration at a reasonable level, and defend Canadian values.
It’s not really that complicated.
It’s not that hard to mess up.
Stephen Harper did it for about a decade (even through the difficult circumstances of minority governments and a global recession), in an era that now looks like a golden age compared to the state of our country today.
And that brings us to Justin Trudeau.
At every step of the way, Trudeau and the Liberals have made the wrong decisions.
They have intervened over and over and over again in what is a deliberate effort to wreck this country and impose a radical socialist agenda.
And ‘thanks’ to Trudeau and the Liberals, Canada now has third-world problems.
According to a special report by National Bank of Canada, we are now caught in a “population trap”.
A population trap is defined as “A situation where no increase in living standards is possible, because the population is growing so fast that all available savings are needed to maintain the existing capital labour ratio”.
Here are a few key points from the report:
“This means that our population is growing so fast that we do not have enough savings to stabilize our capital-labour ratio and achieve an increase in GDP per capita. Simply put, Canada is in a population trap for the first time in modern history. More worrisome is the fact that the decline is not simply due to a lack of housing infrastructure. In fact, the private non-residential capital stock to population ratio has been declining for seven years and is currently no higher than it was in 2012, while it is at a record high in the U.S”
“Canada is caught in a population trap that has historically been the preserve of emerging economies. We currently lack the infrastructure and capital stock in this country to adequately absorb current population growth and improve our standard of living. Our policymakers should set Canada’s population goals against the constraint of our capital stock, which goes beyond the supply of housing, if we are to improve our productivity. At this point, we believe that our country’s annual total population growth should not exceed 300,000 to 500,000 if we are to escape the population trap.”
Note that point: “Canada is caught in a population trap that has historically been the preserve of emerging economies.”
Trudeau and the Liberals have managed to screw things up so badly that we now have economic problems that resemble third-world countries, the kinds of problems we were supposed to have overcome many decades ago.
Trudeau’s deliberate ruination of the country is so immense that he is undoing what generations worked to build.
It is no longer hyperbole to say that Justin Trudeau is destroying our country. Not only is he doing so, he’s doing so on purpose, which makes him the worst Prime Minister in our entire history.
