Broken promises and conservative uprising among youth could spell trouble for Liberals

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Justin Trudeau and the Liberals pay lip service to young people, but those same young people aren’t impressed with the Trudeau government on issues that affect them. 

In fact, the PM was heckled at the youth labour forum where attendees turned their backs on him and called him a hypocrite.

Among other issues, they’re angry because the Liberals aren’t addressing Canada’s youth unemployment rate. For Canadians aged 15 to 24, the employment rate stood at 55.2 per cent as of last June.

Trudeau scolded kids at the forum for protesting, but the fact is, the Liberals had to review their failing youth employment strategy.

And the PM should worry about his broken promises.

According to a psychology professor at the University of San Diego, there’s an uprising among youth:

Jean Twenge’s research on Millennials shows youth today are more politically polarized and more conservative than their parents and grandparents.

Youth are starting to value hard work and tradition, and are becoming more devoted to God.

As the party of jobs, fiscal prudence and family values, the Conservative Party of Canada could become the home for Canada’s youth but they just can’t seem to get it together with young Canadians at election time.

What’s the problem? Could it be that right wing political parties have also shifted left?

Instead of highlighting attractive conservative principles like liberty and freedom, politicians on the right are apologetic about their ideals. Instead, they should promote the idea that people can make choices for themselves.

Conservative principles sell themselves.

James Richardson…It’s a totally different World now..I never knew of Agenda 21..Because of no computer access to information..The “You know everything” should be more informed of what is happening around the World and what trudeau is orchestrating to destroy Canada and Canadian’s..socialism is a failure, has been, still is and always will be..Present example Venezuela…

I am sorry but I have lost faith with the majority of our youth. They are won over by social media. Selfies and photo bombs. They treat “The Turd” like he is royalty. Selling out their values so they can claim being social warriors while smoking a joint. They are almost invisible when it comes to the important issues and there willingness to let the PM get away with everything and anything as long as he shows up for a selfie or marches in a parade.

We all know how it is to be young, You know everything, you look down on people that do not share your views and you can not be told squat. We have all been there. The problem is when you have a family, and a commitment outside of self interests the world is a whole different ball game.

Andrew, he did have a trial while imprisoned at Gitmo; he was convicted & sentenced to 40 years.
High Treason, he and his family committed this crime against Canada multiple times. Omar Khadr is a convicted terrorist who murdered Christopher Speer (medic) and blinded in one eye among other injuries Laine Morris. There has been great legal debates about whether the court would have awarded him with a settlement. The remedy was repatriating him. Very smart members of the Bar who are in good standing have agreed with 71% of Canadians, this payment should have been court ordered. All evidence to be presented at trial. It was up to Khadr’s lawyer to bear the burden of proof this convicted terrorist deserved more than the remedy that was negotiated.

Andrew said in part,
“Now, perhaps the US is willing to look the other way and toss its own citizens in prison indefinitely despite the illegality of doing so, that’s on them.”
What on earth are you talking about!!!!? What a strange thing to write

Andrew Stephenson, I am re-posting as I don’t know if you have already read my previous comments. "

Thing is, the constitutional violations were on top of whatever else he did. There are very strict procedures in place for criminal conviction, and at no point does a conviction (or even just an indictment or accusation) of any nature forfeit basic constitutional rights. The section 7 violations were not part of any sort of legal process and are a separate issue entirely than the conviction being tried (or not), at the time. Being accused of treason is in no way a justification of indefinitely holding someone, illegally, without trial. The accused is as entitled to due process as literally anybody else. To be tossed in Gitmo without trial, is de facto illegal incarceration. Now, perhaps the US is willing to look the other way and toss its own citizens in prison indefinitely despite the illegality of doing so, that’s on them. But Khadr is a Canadian and the Canadian government has the obligation to stand up to the constitutional rights of it citizens, again irrespective of whatever they’ve been accused of. The Canadian government did not, and what action was taken was forced by the courts since the political leadership of both the previous Liberals and the more recent Conservatives, was apathetic at best.

Had he been tried properly and legally, and properly convicted of his crimes, then he could rot in prison for the rest of his life and that would be a fair outcome. But, that’s not what happened.

Ayan Khadr, I mean Ray,
Here are links to the trial video and the signed stipulation of fact signed by Khadr and his lawyer. You posted an opinion piece….to bad for you.
What I find so curious about the “infringement of Khadr’s Charter Rights” is when someone commits High Treason against Canada, why does the infringement take a front seat to the repeated acts of High Treason? The Canadian tax payer didn’t radicalize Khadr and train him to be a killer; we didn’t drop him off in Afghanistan with supplies to build IED’s; we certainly didn’t give him instructions to fight Canadian and American troops; we didn’t introduce him to Osama Bin Laden & yet, the government stole our tax dollars to pay for this despicable settlement.

High treason

(1) Every one commits high treason who, in Canada,

(a) kills or attempts to kill Her Majesty, or does her any bodily harm tending to death or destruction, maims or wounds her, or imprisons or restrains her;

(b) levies war against Canada or does any act preparatory thereto; or

© assists an enemy at war with Canada, or any armed forces against whom Canadian Forces are engaged in hostilities, whether or not a state of war exists between Canada and the country whose forces they are.

Omar KHADR is guilty of HIGH TREASON under Sections B & C.

Khadr is an admitted & convicted terrorist. The majority of Canadians feel this political decision by the Liberal government as a deep betrayal, and, will never accept the Big Lies being trotted out by Trudeau, Gerald Butts, Ralph Goodale, McKenna and the mainstream media Trudeau groupies..

The SCoC did not attach a monetary amount or apology to it’s ruling; and the remedy was to Repatriate this killer.
A normal Prime Minister would have disputed this lawsuit before the judiciary and vehemently opposed any kind of payout. The legal team could have presented legal evidence which exists to support the position Khadr was an illegal enemy combattant; committing High Treason; was found guilty of five war crimes; was not a child soldier under Geneva Convention, a court did not find that Khadr had been tortured as he claimed.

“Liberal MP assistant who didn’t think my correspondence should be shared with his boss, he did a cursory search and realized I am not a constituent.
My response:
Dear Martin Leblanc,

Thank you for your message. I’m a Canadian citizen and permitted to write to any Member of Parliament. I wrote to all Liberal MP’s across Canada, I spent two full afternoons sending my concerns to elected officials who betrayed Canadians by surreptitiously paying a convicted terrorist without a court order to do so.

Omar Khadr was repatriated and that was the remedy, the SCoC did not speak to giving Khadr money or an apology. We know Jean Chretien, Paul Martin and Stephen Harper would have rigorously disputed this in court instead of capitulating in such a devious manner. There is footage of Khadr building IED’s – this is treason and he was never charged with this, or his mother. WHY? Had his father lived, he could have been charged with treason too.

Please forward my communication to MP Ginette Petitpas Taylor, I worked very hard to send e-mails and it is my democratic right to do so.

Other MP’s have responded directly to my concerns or their assistants have assured me the Parliamentarian will receive a printed copy of my correspondence. I am tracking all responses.

Your help with this is greatly appreciated."

Andrew, 71% of Canadians were very upset with this political decision to pay Khadr, it backfired on the Liberals. Trudeau’s gross exaggeration of “possible costs between 30 and 40 million dollars”. The SCoC did not attach any monetary compensation or apology. Given Khadr’s conviction and footage of building IED’s in Afghanistan, the court could have awarded him nothing, or maybe one dollar to make a statement.

Mongrel, true, it can be covered by others. Hardly “anyone”, though. Perhaps one in a thousand or one in ten thousand would be qualified, and a tiny fraction o those actually apply.

Harper neglected the Tri-Council funding agencies. One of the reasons why most universities have more foreign students than domestic ones now at the graduate level is the shortage of domestic funding (foreign students often bringing their own funding). High numbers of foreign students isn’t itself a bad thing, and feeds back on itself such that they drive our globally exceptional universities far beyond the expected reach of a relatively small country ,high achievements attracting more students leading to even greater achievements… but the lack of funding is holding domestic students back from participating and benefiting from the system we’ve built. . Again, Trudeau has yet to address this.

Tammie, hopefully you understand that the government’s had was going to be forced on the Khadr case anyway. Canada’s failure to uphold his constitutional rights under section 7 of the Charter was the subject of the 2010 Supreme Court ruling. He was owed reparations though what that would entail was not defined at the time. Harper could have offered him a peppercorn and made it go away, but he didn’t and it was going to end up back before the courts, where the Arar settlement was to be the likely precedent cited. That would have cost the same circa 10m if successfully tried.

What’s the “core identity” of Canadians? Given how much hostility there is to our nearly coast-to-coast left wing governments (elected by Canadians), it seems that if there is one, you don’t much like it

Jack Carter, your support of Trudeau is delusional. Citing facts is not bigotry. The facts don’t suit you; ask yourself why leftists resort to calling others ignorant, this tactic is predictable why do you still use it!?

The poll you are referring to is lame. American msm & Canadian msm highlight the Prime Minister in fluff pieces, our US friends really have no idea what Trudeau is up to in Canada; besides paying a terrorist 10.5 million dollars. Perhaps this informal poll was taken before the crap hit the fan and the facts were released about Omar Khadr’s deal with the government. Speaking of that, how much did you contribute to

I had typed out another factual message, and, right before I going to hit the Post Your Comment button, my computer froze, then a strange thing happened, the page started rolling quickly then my machine shut down and restarted. Message gone! So, this is all I’m going re-type.

The reduced tendency of right wing parties to try to decide whether a woman should be forced to go to term should not be interpreted as a leftward movement of right wing parties.

Consider that many Conservatives yearn for Progressive Conservative times and values, but for whatever reason are unwilling to consider alternatives.

Progressive Conservatives should prefer an element of proportional representation, because they will be able to have a heart while minding the budget, and ensuring that foreign policy stays true to longstanding moral underpinnings of the nation.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

If you think any negatives about Trudeau remotely come close to the negatives about Trump, then it is clear that you are unable to be objective or reasonable – you are simply delusional.

Besides, Trudeau won in a poll against Trump for who Americans would prefer as their President.

Most of your problems with Trudeau per your posts are actually a reflection of your bigotry and ignorance, fueled of course by Rebel fear mongering.

Jack, speaking of “shit show” we have one here in Canada!
Trudeau is under investigation, and, cannot speak coherently in either official language. Add to that, he is bankrupting our nation, paying convicted terrorists and is pushing to restrict free speech. He has told foreign leaders Canada has no core identity and we are a post-national state. His grovelling meetings with George Soros and the UN is an embarrassment. He is an Islamist, and allows the OIC to push their radical agenda on Canada (this is facilitated by Omar Algabra). Oh, and, convicted terrorists keep their Canadian passports. Read up on Bill C-6 – not good news for Canadians. He gave 20 million to the corrupt Clinton Foundation, after FBI investigation was launched….moronic collusion with criminals.
Then, consider his caucus :

Harjit Sajjan – He had much to be proud of with his actual military record/service. This wasn’t enough, he chose to lie and is now referring to it as a mistake. Stolen Valour is not something a Defence Minister should have on his/her resume. Sajjan doesn’t have the integrity to resign, and his boss doesn’t have the sense to demand it.

Iqra Khalid, author of the motion to ban any criticism of Islamic ideology & was praised by ISIS leader for being a loyal servant of Allah and using taqiyya on Justin Trudeau.

Chrystia Freeland – Dismisses her grandfather’s Nazi ties as “only helping Russia’s propagandists”
She was the “crying Minister of Trade” before becoming Canadian Foreign Minister

Maryam Monsef – Heralded as Canada’s first Afghan-born Minister: turns out she was born in Iran and lived most of her early life Iran. How is it possible for an educated person not to know their birth country?

Melanie Joly – The Heritage Minister tasked with studying Islamophobia in Canada and she is incapable of defining it either.

Border Security (nothing to worry about) – Ralph Goodale
Budget Balancer (RRSP sales guy) – Bill Morneau
Phoenix Fixer (and office reno rulebreaker) – Judy Foote
Global Warming Alarmist (carbon taxer) – Catherine McKenna

I could go on, but, I’m tired; so tired of the shit show perpetrated by Trudeau and his misfits!

Obama was one of the worst presidents, and, Donald Trump has a huge mess to clean up. He has made some mistakes along the way. I recommend you listen to speeches in Poland, Israel and of course Saudi Arabia.

Postdoc and instructor. By definition, not things that anybody can cover.

They also pay terribly. That’s just how it is. I do it because I love doing it, not because you get rich doing it

More pertinently, Harper gutted Canadian science. Trudeau has yet to fix it. Does the fact that Trudeau failed to come through on that one mean I’ll vote for the Conservatives? No, of course not. Apathy is a better option than open hostility.
