How about using the office of President to support his wife and daughter's businesses?


"Trudeau’s 5 priorities

The prime minister said his government would immediately move on the following five promises the Liberals made during the recent election campaign:

Launch a national public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.
Make significant investments in First Nations education.
Lift the two per cent cap on funding for First Nations programs.
Implement all 94 recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Repeal all legislation unilaterally imposed on indigenous people by the previous government.
“These are just five of the commitments we’ve made as part of our efforts to repair this most important relationship,” Trudeau said in the address to First Nations leaders on Tuesday.

Trudeau said his government would also look to repeal bills passed “unilaterally” by the Conservatives under Stephen Harper.

“We will conduct a full review of the legislation unilaterally imposed on indigenous peoples by the previous government,” said the prime minister in his speech to First Nations chiefs.

“Where measures are found to be in conflict with your rights, where they are inconsistent with the principles of good governance, or where they simply make no public policy sense, we will rescind them,” said Trudeau."


Huh! Who knew that actually requesting accountability for all the billions of dollars we have given over the years to the FN is "inconsistent with the principles of good governance". Oh, I get it - it's Liberal policy that they don't have to be accountable so no one else does either. ahhhh. It's not politically correct to ask where the money is going - just ask Bombardier. Yep, Trudeau is certainly for the "average" Canadian alright - and, in the end, the people of the FN will not be any better off; the commission on missing indigenous women will not come up with any solutions; at least ones that we already know about. Yessireee, Mr. Trudeau is going to be the savior of our FN peoples - I can see it - NOT

My father had an Engineering & a teaching degree from McGill and retired from the same Commission as foreman of the enlarged Construction group that worked on the Montreal Subway. Me I graduated with a Medical Secretary Degree from McGill and while I did work for over 30 years at that profession I did my time at other jobs before doing what I was trained for. First for a photo studio and then for a company that built telephone,s then as a Medical Secretary in a hospital Emergency Department. Oh and I worked on a dairy farm with my husband until he sold the cows,
So, don't whine and say how hard all those with decent educations have getting started in a career in their field because it has never been easy and this generation is no different than all the others. Remember in 3rd world countries, they never even have the option of a part time or level entry job.

The Liberals are trying to change their work week from 5-days to 4-days, but keep their full pay. If they can change this rule, it would have to include all the workforces in Canada, no? I hope they can past this one, but only if it includes us as well.

Only a simpleton would confuse fewer H of C days with fewer work days. Clearly, you haven't the faintest idea what MP's actually do.

I wonder why anyone would think Tump would be good for running a country efficiently when he could not even run his own companies well. He declared bankruptcy at least four times. There is very little else he did efficiently except managing to dupe many numb nuts into believing he could run anything efficiently

Yep, Donald Trump's companies have declared bankruptcy...more than four times | PolitiFact (external - login to view)

Gues who paid for those...Not Donald!! He has the lowest approval rate of any President at this stage of his tenure in US history!!

They are smart enough to recognize blow-hard, nit wits than most "Con" men do. They realize that unless they are amongst the elite, they will either die of disease early or have to depend on the welfare system (which in case the more dumbest Cons don't realize are their own taxes) i imagine they will have so little breaks tax wise, after supporting those without a modicum of self-protection that they will remain broke and in debt over their life in order to provide the life style of those that use bankruptcy as a way of living their life on the backs of others.

it will come down to how quickly the dumbed-down average American realizes they are being taken on an incredibly,nasty life ride.

The logic of this will undoubtedly escape most rabid Trumpites. Like the Trumpster said, "I love the poorly educated". What he didn't say is that they are the easiest to con.

Why did the Liberals send our Canadian troops to war in Afganistan ?

Actually the smart Trumpettes are pushing " I love the poor huddled masses because they make the best cannon fodder " . Is that why you are so worried Cliff ? Are you part of that poor huddled mass ?

Yes you do have built in bias against anything conservative , You would hold the same position that you have on Trump if the republican nominee now president was any other republican be it GW Bush Mitt Romney Marco Rubio , Ted Cruz or even Jeb Bush . All that hatred must sit well in your stomach .

Quite right......a college degree doesn't mean such persons are the smartest ones around ..BUT...it certainly doesn't put one in the huddled masses category either. In fact only 35% of those huddled masses approve of Trump today. Even the huddled masses are smartening up as a whole!!

According to the 2014 Education at a Glance report by the OECD, Canada has the highest percentage, among member countries, of adults aged 25-64 who have obtained a tertiary education – 53%. We've occupied that spot for some years now. The OECD average is 32%.Sep 9, 2014

College degrees can be highly over rated. Years ago I worked with a man who had a grade 5 education (back in the 1920s) and yet that man had more smarts that virtually every university graduate that I knew. More wisdom & sagacity might be more accurate.

Hey-you sent me that e-mail about H of P work days by mistake- but that`s ok- and trust me WE DO understand about MP days in parliament with Mp`s squabbling like children while the country burns-one has only to look at the time wasted by LIE-beral Monseff outburst over electoral reform scam or the whining about the Islamophobia LIE-beral reverse bigotry M-103 "motion" that sneaky LIE-berals are trying to expand into a bludgeon they can use to stifle ALL debate on any topic critical of LIE-beral policy!

We also understand about time spent back at the constituency office communing with voters to see how bigoted LIE-berals can become-and get away with in support of their favorite pressure groups and causes of the moment-the ones LIE-berals HOPE will buy them support for next election since they have alienated so many environmentalists with pipe line approval`s, and young people who hoped for aid with jobs and debt, and civil service Hogs who are expecting way more gravy and instead are getting MORE DEBT, and ordinary people who are waking up to the damage LIE-berals are doing to our economy with their free spending that only helps LIE-beral pals!!

Frankly my vote is for an IMMEDIATE 40 percent CUT in the number of MP`s as we are already over governed and for an IMMEDIATE 100 percent cut in the number of hacks, flacks and public relations twits! AS for time actually IN parliament-maybe if we turned the MP job into a PART TIME ONE with PART TIME PAY maybe there would be more sense displayed in parliament! Its clearly not how long you spend in parliament-its how much money you spend while there-and LIE-berals have WASTED both their time and our money!

This Canadian isnt a fan of either. Though if for some reason they wound up being the only two names on a ballot and I couldnt spoil or decline said ballot - Id go for Trudeau. Thankfully that will never happen.

That is true, but that same man would have a hard time getting a good job today without a piece of paper saying he had some form of post secondary education. Things have changed considerably. That piece of paper is worth more than actual experience in many places now. I work at a University now and they asked me to write a piece about how my degree has helped me be good at what I do. I had to BS my way through that piece as the truth would be very short and not what they wanted to hear. The truth being: Nothing. It got me in the door but gave me absolutely no help with the actual job. I could have done this job just as well without the degree - except there is no way in hell i would have been considered much less hired without it.

Unless you are a handicapped native. That trumps everything for government jobs.
