Canada

Justin Trudeau promised Canadians real changes… 10 things he done since becoming the Prime Minister.

Real Changes? Yes some have been done but none to help directly the real Canadian people. We need concrete action!What we need is a Prime Minister that will stand up, make intelligent and strategy choice to increase the jobs and wealth of our country! Justin Trudeau is far from understand the real needed, he is just good looking, hanging around and taking selfie all over the world.

“We’ll kickstart the economy by investing in jobs and growth and lowering taxes for our middle class,” Justin Trudeau in the election campaign in 2015. 

Don’t get me wrong, unemployment rate have decrease and jobs increase since 2015, but Justin have no direct merits in this. The global economy is just cyclic and he happen to be there when it’s going up.

But so far he just lost times and made Canada deficit terribly higher… nothing to be proud.

Here is the list of the Justin changes…

1-Gender-balanced cabinet

Ministers include a refugee, immigrants, Sikhs, Muslims, people with disabilities, and members of the aboriginal community for a total of 15 men and 15 women.

Ok that’s good but really who care about color or gender… Just get the jobs done by qualify people.

2 -Legalize marijuana 
Justin Trudeau pledge to legalize recreational marijuana is underway and will be voted by July 01th. For now only people with medical issues can buy control marijuana at a designated store.

Not sure yet if it will be that good for the economy and community, will have to wait to see!!

3-“Improved” the electoral system

 

Trudeau wanted to change Canada’s voting system, in which a candidate wins a district simply by securing more votes than his or her opponents, without needing to win an overall majority of votes.

After he was elected, that changed… His government created a committee in charge of electoral reform and launched a public consultation process, after what Trudeau step back by suggesting that since Canadians have been pleased with his current government.

 

Nothing has change here… just time lost.

 

4- Resettle additional 25,000 Syrian refugees

 

In the past year, Canada has accepted over 33 200 refugees from Syria.

 

Help is good, being an open country is also good but too much is like not enough…We need to help the Canadian first! This must be the priority.

 

5- Promises to not go over a deficit of $10 billion by year

 

During his election, Trudeau promises Canadians and projected deficits of $9.9 billion in 2016-17, $9.5 billion in 2017-18, $5.7 billion in 2018-2019, and a surplus of $1 billion in 2019-2020.

 

When the Liberals presented their first budget in March, 2016, Trudeau almost tripled his projected 2016-17 deficit to $29.4 billion, followed by $29 billion in 2017-18, $22.8 billion in 2018-19, $17.7 billion in 2019-20 and $14.3 billion in 2020-21.

 

 

Nothing more to say…this is crazy… does he know how to count!!!

 

 

6- End military action against ISIS

 

The Liberals committed to pulling Canada’s six CF-18 fighter jets out of the war against ISIS ― a plan that triggered mixed reactions in the wake of the ISIS-led Paris attacks. They also allocated more than $1 billion to training local forces and providing humanitarian support for those affected by the crisis in Iraq and Syria. 

One year later, there’s still some confusion about what Canada’s ISIS mission actually entails.

 

Also nothing change here…

 

7-Reduce carbon pollution

Trudeau announced plans to impose a minimum carbon tax ― $10 per ton starting 2018, rising to $50 per ton by 2022 ― in an effort to combat climate change.

 

The best way to changes things and reduce the pollution is by encouraging change by positive instead of negative… Justin Trudeau must stand up and make things different, we are in 2017 right?

 

8- Reform counterterrorism strategy

 

Justin and his team to repeal problematic elements of controversial Bill C-51, a form of anti-terrorism legislation that grants the government increased access to citizens’ information for national security purposes. They have yet to make changes, but launched a public consultation platform in September as part of the process. 

In response to an outpouring of similar concerns, the Liberals introduced another bill, C-22, which would create an all-party oversight committee to hold national security agencies accountable for their actions.

 

So far all paperwork…

 

9- Protect transgender rights

 

Trudeau followed through with another campaign promise and introduced government legislation that adds gender identity as a prohibited ground of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act.

 

He made history in July by becoming the first Canadian prime minister to ever march in the Pride parade,

 

Our prime minister made history for that??

Those people deserved right too but really I doesn’t need to put millions times on this and go lost time in parade… just get it done and move to the next urgent files please!

 

10-Reduce financial strain for middle-class families and students

 

Trudeau government is raising taxes for the wealthiest 1 percent of Canadians to enable cuts for low-income families. Those benefiting from the tax relief are expected to save up to $670 each per year.

Liberals also introduced the Canada Child Benefit to support middle-class parents. They say the program will give the typical family of four an additional $2,500 every year, free of taxes. 

To help students who are struggling to afford post-secondary education, the government has increased the maximum Canada Student Grant for low-income students to $3,000 per year for full-time students, and to $1,800 per year for part-time students.

The Justice Department has also allocated $16.17 million in funding over four years for new Family Information Liaison Units in each province and territory to support people affected by the crisis.

 

Only good things he is done for the middle class Canadian but …. With a deficit of $ 29, 4 billions … not sure if is really helping us..
