I've been hearing how the country has taken a massive right turn and Reagan/Thatcher are the role models now. It's just boggling how Canada could go that crazy.
This is going to be a long one man lol
I can only really speak for myself as a Canadian on this one. If others want to add to it or point out where I'm off by my guest... Politics isn't generally a focus on my life
Honestly barely remember the 80;s too well.
So Pierre Trudeau isn't fresh in my mind think he was a lib... He brought in a lot of nice things though from what i know about him for Canada, problem is we couldn't really afford them. Been told for many decades he's the rest my country will be in debt for as long as i live and beyond... if this is true then it's not a good thing.
I remember Brian Mulroney being in power, and think he was after Trudeau. I know we can thank him for GST, which i think everyone thought he was joking or lying about bring in. But he kept his word and well i think most have forgot about the Convs bring that in.
Think Jean Chrétien came in after him, and sort of remember him... but he wasn't much of what one would call a strong leader... other than bring in the gun registry that wasted a lot of Canadian's money i can't remember him doing anything too new worthy.
Now Harper is in power and yeah he's a righty or so they say. So far he's made it so we pay less taxes which is good so far as i'm concerned. I do have massive concerns about his environmental views, but he didn't really win the last election. The libs last elections gave it to him on a silver plate
here's what the lib's did wrong in my eyes at least.
A) The guy they had in running for Prime mister didn't even seem to like to spend his time in Canada. Now i love my brothers to the south, but I Am Canadian, and love this land of mine, I love the Hockey, Ruby, wings nights, the cold winters, and sexy summers.. I love my Tim Horton's coffee every other day lol, so i can't see why anyone would want to vote for someone that is like yeah... can being prime mistery be a stepping stone to something better?
B) he can off as a cry baby when he tried for that coalition government.
C) he made Canadian's get off our asses to vote again because of him trying to find a loop hole... Note to all those running for office, Don't annoy your public before running,
Now Personally I have nothing again Libs, other than the guy they had running for Prime Minister. I hear that the next election there are going in a new direction and I'm pumped for it,
I'd like to say that at least some Canadian's are like me and we aren't about so much the parties history as much as, ok this is there goal and directions for now, and this another point of view, and then pick the one that's closes to what we think is best for Canada and out personal lives. So i don't believe it's so much as a Right turn as much as the Left isn't giving us reasons to vote for them... Hopefully next election they will bring something nice to the table
