Can Trudeau get away with killing electoral reform?

October 23, 2016

A look at the Trudeau Liberals a year after the election

October 23, 2016

One year ago on Wednesday, the Trudeau Liberals were swept to power when they won 184 seats in the House of Commons with the promise of “real change.”

On this first anniversary, it’s important to look at how are they doing on the critical files of trade, climate, water and health care.

One year after election, Trudeau’s climate mettle no better than Harper’s

October 23, 2016

It’s been a year since Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister and the Liberal Party gained an overwhelming majority in parliament. Trudeau swept most of the country, including all of Atlantic Canada, on a platform of Real Change. He promised a 180-degree shift on most of the Harper government’s policies, especially on climate change. Yet, one year later, Trudeau’s lofty promises have little substance to show for them. His government is in bed with the oil and gas industry, just as cozily as Harper’s was.

The Liberals’ new discussion paper on Bill C-51 reads like a defence of the bill it’s supposed to fix

October 23, 2016

The Liberal Government has recently released a document called Our Security, Our Rights: National Security Green Paper. The Green Paper was meant to kick off a series of public consultations by providing a list of helpful speaking points. The document opens with a stated goal to meet the Liberal Party election promises to amend the “problematic elements” of the Anti-Terrorism Act (Bill C-51).

Though after reading through its many sections, it seems apparent to me that the Green Paper was written to defend the act from its many criticisms. A ridiculous reversal in the light of Trudeau’s promises.

‘The world must jettison neoliberal ideology’: A globalization wake-up call

October 1, 2016

If recent mainstream economic reports are to be taken seriously, some of the big brains managing global capitalism these days are starting to lose faith in their neoliberal ideology. S

Which broken Liberal promise most reminds you of Stephen Harper?

October 1, 2016

We suspected from election day that Trudeau’s promises were far from ironclad (timely then that our Parliamentary Correspondent Karl Nerenberg returns this month). The Liberal Party, and particularly Trudeau who currently stands unchallenged by the two leaderless parties facing him in the House, have enjoyed high approval ratings in the polls. But with this latest flip-flop, the broken promises are starting to stack up.

Maybe you’re sad about some of them. Maybe (probably) some of them make you pretty angry. Maybe you’re disappointed or maybe you’re just pretty pleased you can finally say “I told you so.” But which broken promise makes you forget that we ever had an election at all?
