So true! Canadians voted for what they wanted to hear.
I think that what they didn't realize is that what they wanted to hear will not be easy to deliver.
Perhaps Trudeau actually believed that his promises were achievable. But my gut tells me that the promises were made only to gain power.
It is not very responsible to make promises unless you are very sure you will be able to keep them. In this case the Liberals put the cart before the horse. They made promises, and once elected started saying, 'We are looking into ......', 'we are making a plan .......'' , 'we will do a study .....', 'we will let you know when we have worked out .....'.
They would have protected themselves from making broken promises had they did their looking into, making plans, studying, and working out BEFORE the election, saying instead 'We INTEND to .....', We will MAKE A PLAN to ....',.
See the difference?
Yes Harper make mistakes too. But that doesn't excuse the Liberals from this huge mistake of making promised that cannot possibly be kept.
