EDIT:   For those wondering why, it's because of the revival of the Rhinoceros Party and Kieran Szuchewycz -- who is the offical agent for about 80 of the 84 candidates on the ballot. Supposed to be a protest against FPTP.

I'm not sure this is the appropriate venue for protesting FPTP.

I just want a country where the government leaves us alone and doesn't tax the bejesus out of us all to pay for $12M deer-kills.

That sounds like a call to action.

 

In case the federal government hasn't noticed, we are already building fences, installing surveillance cameras, and dealing with a major rise in property crimes and violence at or near our homes due to the drug crisis.

The Canadian Medical Association said the change will worsen the doctor shortage. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business said the policy appeared to be “more about politics than tax fairness.” And the Council of Canadian Innovators posted a statement on social media, describing Ms. Freeland’s 15-minute speech as a “political diatribe” and an attempt at “class warfare from a desperate government.”

How tall is the fence around Freeland’s mansion?

^Interesting strategy. I’m surprised the economics lesson isn’t dumbed down more. It respects the viewer - I hope it plays well for them. But honestly I worry Poilievre is overestimating the average voter. “Ain’t nobody got time to watch a 15 min video”

Poilievre posts lots of shorter videos as well. This one is one of his longest recently, and contained more actual information rather than just anti-Trudeau messaging.

In question period yesterday, Poilievre asked Freeland to commit to “welders” not being charged the new 66.7% capital gains tax, after Freeland said welders pay more tax than wealthy Canadians that the capital gains tax targets, which Freeland says are 0.13% of the country. Curious math, I bet, if we were to see the actual criteria for the calculation.

Anyway, Poilievre asked the Liberals to commit to just this 0.13% of Canadians being charged higher capital gains, and nobody outside of the 0.13% feeling its impact. They refused.

What this means, of course, is sellers of assets will seek higher sale prices to overcome a now larger tax burden. It will drive up the cost of buying real-estate, buying companies, compensation packages, etc. Ultimately the average consumer will pay more when the investment cost for the buyer of an asset is higher.

The welder, who may run his own welding company, will feel the tax’s impact when selling appreciating assets. He’ll also feel the impact when inheriting property, or selling property like a place of business. It all inevitably leads to higher costs.

The latest "let them eat cake" atrocities from Sockboy and the Hypocrites (courtesy of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation weekly newsletter)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fine China, fancy feasts and a $220,000 taxpayer tab

Welcome to Air Trudeau, where the cares are free, the juice is freshly squeezed, the meals are served on fine China and the bill is sent to you. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his entourage spent $223,000 of your money on airplane food during a six-day tour of the Indo-Pacific region last fall, according to government records dug up by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.  

Eating that much could wear a silver spoon right out.

To put things in perspective: that’s enough money to cover a month of groceries for 165 Canadian families, or buy 13,937 glasses of Bev Oda’s favourite orange juice.

But the bill gets big when this is the grocery list:  Beef brisket and parsley mashed potatoes with truffle oil. Pan fried beef tenderloin with port wine reduction sauce. Braised lamb shanks with steamed broccoli and boiled baby potatoes. Strawberry shortcake and baked cheesecake with pistachio brittle.

Sounds just like the meals you get on Air Canada or WestJet, right?

The records indicate staff were told Trudeau’s meals (and ONLY Trudeau’s meals) must be appropriately garnished and served on China dishware

Pro-tip for the prime minister: Have you seen your polling numbers lately? It might be tough to connect with the middle class while chowing down on braised lamb shanks, topped with a sprig of parsley and served on fine China. 

Snacks offered onboard Air Trudeau included cured meats and artisanal cheeses, veggies and dip, and fresh papaya, pineapple, dragon fruit, watermelon and berries. And the juice served was noted as being “freshly-squeezed.”

A special request was put in for the plane to be stocked with Trudeau’s favourite brand of premium alkaline spring water, and staff picked up $900 worth of pop and chips before take-off. Trudeau and his entourage also spent $300 on movies and magazines.  

Well we already know the prime minister doesn’t read his briefing notes, so it’s good he had the latest editions of the Jacobin and Mad Magazine to keep him occupied – it was a long flight, after all. 

All told, the trip cost you $1.9 million and counting. 

Trudeau has now claimed the top spot on our leaderboard for the most extravagant taxpayer-funded travel expenses, surpassing Governor General Mary Simon’s legendary March 2022 performance, when she gobbled up $100,000 worth of airplane food. After details of Simon’s airplane extravaganza went public (courtesy of your friends at the CTF), a parliamentary committee summoned high-ranking bureaucrats to answer for the outrageous tab. The bureaucrats pinkie promised to change the rules and stop frivolous spending.  Well clearly those efforts are going swimmingly…

 

The government set out to lower costs. -- Then Trudeau doubled them.

Singh laments the Liberals, but won’t answer press questions why he’s propping up a party he laments.

Because he's an amoral opportunist.
