Justin Trudeau Follows in the Path of Other Corrupt Liberals Since U.S. Free Trade
And, don't get me started on Justin Trudeau's farcical "independent Senate" which has been characterized essentially by the appointment of political puppets of the Office of the Prime Minister that have been less independent in principle from the PMO on the voting of legislation than any Senate under the political party patronage system.
You might wonder what is going on with the Liberal Party anyways? What's with all these corrupt Liberals from coast to coast seeking to sell us sex appeal and "sunny ways" over political substance and integrity?
What I am about to say you will not find in publications like the Toronto Star, Maclean's and elsewhere because the mainstream media in Canada has become part of a charade that only tells us about scandals and not about its root causes.
My insights come from being a Liberal Party insider since the 1980's.
The federal Liberal Party as Canadians know as the political party that has sought to embrace certain values that we like to equate with "Canadian Liberalism" essentially died in 1988. That was the year when I was part of the Kaplan campaign in North York which was part of a concerted effort to stop then neo-Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney from passing the North American Free Trade Agreement. (NAFTA).
We 'true' Liberals tried to regroup in 1993 under Mel Hurtig's National Party, but in-fighting between Mel Hurtig and a financial backer resulted in that party becoming defunct.
Liberal Party idealists eventually tried to regroup in the early 2000's under former Liberal Party cabinet member Paul Helleyer who led the Canadian Action Party to continue to oppose the ignored ravages of "free trade" against Canada's social fabric and sovereignty. But CAP lacked the media coverage to get widespread support as a result of efforts mainstream media to cover up the Liberal Party's transformation,
When us idealists were essentially kicked-out of the Liberal Party, we were essentially replaced by the kind of corrupt fake Liberals which now run the party and apparently control Justin Trudeau like one of their puppets.
When us idealists controlled the Liberal Party, we sought to defend principles supported by the majority of Canadians which made us so successful federally.
These principles include defending equal opportunities for all Canadians based upon the affirmation of social justice, Canadian sovereignty, human rights, and constitutional freedoms while seeking to be as fiscally responsible as possible.
When John Turner had been Prime Minister in the mid-1980's, I only saw one homeless person on a regular basis who used to stand around St George and Bloor Street who kept asking for a "dime, or a nickel and a quarter" and he didn't look destitute at all and was relatively well dressed and didn't seem to be lacking in access to food.
Back then Toronto, Ottawa and most other Canadian cities had far less poverty as far as areas of social despair and there were no news reports at waiting lines at Canadian hospitals or gun crime. By contrast, homelessness and other social problems has continued to proliferate under Justin Trudeau and it's not because of a lack of money. Indeed, Mr. Trudeau seems to have a lot of money for corporate welfare schemes to help out oil companies with pipeline bailouts but comparatively little it seems to redress the plight of "ordinary Canadians" ad former NDP leader Ed Broadbent used to say.
Canadians need to realize that the Liberal Party today is a bunch of self-serving and corrupt individuals who are fronts for Big Business in Canada. These corrupt interests are simply seeking to use the Liberal Party name to invoke a nostalgia which has nothing to do with the modus operandi of the corrupt egos who now run so-called "Liberal Parties" across Canada.
