Justin Trudeau and his Liberals have a new budget out, and guess what this new budget just unveiled by Finance Minister Bill Morneau is all about?
Yep, the Middle Class. Except, as Laval University Economics Professor Stephen Gordon pointed out in the National Post the other day, the Liberals haven’t been doing much for the middle class and those working hard to join it and this budget doesn’t change that.
I won’t repeat government talking points. Instead, I’m going to give you the top five things you’re missing if you rely on the media party types to give you the news.
The stories that are out there are lacking. Everything from repeating talking points about ‘no new spending’ that is actually fake news, to seriously understating the size of future deficits and even a major gun policy change snuck into this budget, but you deserve the truth.
Watch as I share with you the five things you won’t learn from the traditional media coverage of the budget.
I didn’t even have space for prioritizing gender and ethics training for judges over actually getting new judges on the bench to stop cases from being thrown out for taking too long.
It’s all part of Justin’s sunny ways.
