A department of peace, 60 more official languages and declaring sugar a toxic substance. All fine Liberal ideas about to get some serious consideration.
The federal Liberal Party, with their hands on the reigns of power, are going to have a convention later this month at the same time as the Conservative convention.
The Conservatives will discuss how to take power back from the Liberals, and Liberals will discuss what to do with their new found power, and that’s worrisome.
Among the ideas? A department of peace! We already have a well-funded global body doing what this Liberal motion is proposing and it fails miserably. Adding Canadian bureaucrats to the fray won’t help.
A department of peace isn’t the only looney idea the Liberals are considering.
I review some of the worst big-spending proposals including one to eliminate all forms of Islamophobia, a couple on aboriginal issues with one that CANNOT become government of Canada policy calling for aboriginal languages to join English and French as official languages. According to Stats Canada there are 60 aboriginal languages spoken in Canada. Ready for 62 official languages?
Most of these policies are unworkable but they’ll push ahead indifferent to the cost to taxpayers or damage to the national fabric. All for the cause.
I'd say pity the poor Liberals, but we’re the ones that elected them and may have to live under these policies.
