I can’t believe I have to say “it’s gonna be a long four years” twice in the same year. We elected the most ass-backward NDP government the country has ever seen (and our country has seen its share of socialist NDP parties) and now we have 4 years of Trudeau.
This posting might come off a little harsh but I am kinda sick of getting kicked by millionaires from Quebec so I am using my angry voice.
Let us forget that the man’s father was prime minister for 14 years and hated the idea of Canada. Justin has come out publicly and said that Alberta is the cause of problems in Canada…
Canada isn’t doing well right now because it’s Albertan’s who control our collective socio-democratic agenda.”
He believes that the greatest prime ministers of the 20th century are from Quebec (all millionaire lawyers from Montreal)…
The only (prime minister’s) that really were any good were from Quebec like Trudeau, Mulroney, Cretien, Paul Martin.
Then he goes on to say that Canada belongs to Quebecers. And before you say that “just because you saw a meme on the internet doesn’t mean he actually said that about Alberta”… here he is saying it…
Why can we not get a politician from Quebec that actually likes Canada as a country and doesn’t want East and West as rivals? Where is national pride. Trudeau has made it clear that he cares more about immigrants than Alberta and that is not making any friends out West.
But the country has spoken, Harper was horrible because he didn’t come from Quebec, or maybe because he came from Alberta.
Let’s look at what Harper did so bad for Canada…
- brought in the Federal Accountability Act (this is the kind of stuff that got Mulcair and his NDP charged $2,750,000 that they still haven’t paid)
- he reduced the GST from 7% to 5% – something Mulroney brought in and Cretien promised to abolish but lied about (and why does anyone trust any politician from Quebec?)
- created the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement to make monetary reparations to pay over $1.6B to 80,000 former Indian Residential School students
- withdrew from the Kyoto Protocol (which Cretien signed us up for) before Alberta would have to pay $14B to eliminate pollution that China has no interest in eliminating (China’s pollution rose 200% from 1999 to 2009)
- he cancelled Cretien’s Canadian Firearms Registry, the one that Cretien said was going to cost $2M a year but was cancelled (by Harper) when costs surpassed $1B… but then what is $998M to a Liberal millionaire from Quebec?
Harper did some stupid things and might be known for scandals…
- The Senate Expense Scandal…
- The Sponsorship Scandal… nope that one was from Quebecers Paul Martin and Jean Cretien,
- The Red Book should be considered a scandal since it was a book of lies… but it was used to get Cretien elected
- The Airbus Affair… nope, that was Mulroney, another great Quebecer who should be in prison
Please don’t remember Harper for anything about a Niqab… it has nothing to do with religion unless a Muslim can drag it out in front of our court system. He was making a point that when a woman is celebrating her new citizenship in Canada she should not be wearing something that epitomizes degradation of women in a culture that she came from.
I thought it was just Trudeau that hated Alberta
In Alberta, the Trudeau name is synonymous with “Western Alienation” which has run rampant since Pierre created Petro Canada to directly compete with Alberta oil companies and then the National Energy Program which was designed by Pierre to take revenue from Alberta and give it to Ontario and Quebec.
I understand the Vancouver voting because most people are immigrants and don’t give a crap about Canada… or do none of you like us?
In Toronto, do most of you hate that Alberta didn’t get crushed by the recession of 2008 or do you think that you are all that matters in Canada…
I suppose I understand Montreal because you want to vote for the hometown idiot who will keep those transfer payments coming in…
What I don’t get is the Maritimes. Why would Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI and New Foundland and Labrador go Liberal. I don’t get that vote at all. Did you not hear Justin talk about how much he hated us out here? I would love someone to clear this up for me.
The problem is, we needed more educated voters and apparently not enough of you know your ass from a hole in the ground.
We have a brand new government over here. Yes, our citizens used their democratic right to oust a wanna-be criminal and rather than give Liberals a chance, a whole pile of them voted for the NDP, the closest thing they could find to a socialist. Shockingly, they voted enough to give them control and now the NDP run the breadbasket of Canada
Six months later we have a devastated economy, the fastest growing debt in the country, no budget in place to gauge the spending and no hope of recovery with the current oil market… where is Trudeau getting his money from now?
For those of you who do not understand what “Equalization Payments” are, it is the federal government’s way to standardize services between provinces by taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor provinces.
For the record, Alberta is the only province to never receive an Equalization Payment.
In 2005, almost $11B was divided up by everyone except Ontario and Alberta.
In 2015, over $17B will be divided up by everyone except Alberta, New Foundland and Labrador, Saskatchewan (just got rid of the NDP), and BC (got rid of the NDP a few years earlier).
Most provinces try to be self sufficient and their Equalization Payments don’t change much but the big winners of the past decade are Ontario, which is still suffering from a crushing blow from the 2008 recession and over a decade of Liberal rule (and spending), and Quebec, who seem to have nothing to offer Canada except millionaire lawyers for Prime Minister… oh wait, now they have a millionaire drama teacher.
[edit: sorry I forgot about maple syrup]
Before you guys get excited about your Equalization Payments (Ontario gets $2.4B next year from $0 in 2005 and Quebec has gone to $9.5B from $4.8B), think about where that money comes from.
That is right, this Trudeau can’t steal it from Alberta anymore. What the low oil prices haven’t taken already, the new NDP will spend long before you get any. Watch closely over the next four years at how many times Justin says or does something to hurt Alberta, or play favorite with Quebec. Then think about how many times Harper did something to help Alberta and hurt another province. Harper was not perfect, heck I told you all he had to go, but at least he loved Canada.
I used to be upset by all the talk about Quebec separating because I loved Canada so much but with another Trudeau in power and the new immigrant concerns, I think more and more Albertans are going to stop waiting for the leadership problems in this country to be solved with Quebec separating and the discussion of Alberta separating will become a hot topic.
Please remember this next time you cast a vote to elect another millionaire from Quebec… especially when he publicly states that he hates Alberta… remember the hypocrite from Alberta. And please, don’t hold it against me when I say something negative about voters from Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal or the Maritimes. You had a chance to give Harper another 4 years but instead chose to screw Alberta.
