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.

Andrew said in part ,“I’d rather be broke than calloused.”
Thought incomplete?
Your statement sounds like you would rather be broke than work hard…hence, not calloused.

I realize you could be calling another commentor calloused, but, your post is unclear. Why is that?

Jack, the video has references to President Trump,I note you have been “triggered” on several occasions, and posted anti-Trump rants on this site. This includes your other pseudonyms.
Safe spaces and the like are really silly & divisive; glad you have decided not to support it.
Have fun with leftist regressives – Truth Factory uploaded some great topics and suggestions! Troll them for a while.

Drew Wakariuk,

I don’t think the left or right cares really, but I believe in modern thinking and being on the right side of history, so I support the liberals for that reason as opposed to conservatives who want to pretend like it’s still 1950.

It’s interesting how you feel the need to invent a backstory to feel smug about. I’m curious as to where exactly that came from, since doesn’t seem based on anything I actually said.

I’d rather be broke than calloused.

I am not a SJW, so unfortunately the video was of no interest to me. I don’t support safe spaces and the like.

Drew Wakariuk,

I am not suffering at all – John Tory has been a great mayor for the most part and that’s why he will win again.

“Justin Trudeau and the Liberals pay lip service to young people…”

Lip service. Yup, that’s it. Lip stick. Lip pins. And lip locks. Don’t forget the lip locks.

And Andy “Paris” Scheer has bigger lips than turdo la doo.

So Andrew Stephenson,

You are saying your 2007 degree allows you to work 8 hours a day at a coffee shop, so you have to have a second job. Pity.

You should have decided on a real job route. Except that means calloused hands and a willingness to travel. Oh well, you are still young and might learn.

Andrew S , If there was debt with the Conservatives it was for a darn good reason , mostly to help Canadians during the hard times caused by Lieberals stupidity . I wonder how many millions the Lieberals wasted on gun registration alone which was something a communist country would do not a free country ! By the comments you make I’m sure you have never worked 16 hr days , 7 days a week like I have my whole life except for when the Lieberals are in power and than I have a hard time even finding work so when you grow up than your comments might have some common sense but I doubt it . So why don’t you go troll on another site the the CBC since you know everything ! "

What “liberal stupidity” was thatt? Mulroney was PM for how long? He never even tried to cut the deficit, it was Chretien who averted bankruptcy. To be fair, the Financial Crisis did not arise in Canada, but Harper did run up well over a hundred billion dollars in added debt because of it.

You’re right, I’ve never worked 16 hours a day. I’ve never needed to. I can generally make do on a standard 8×5 work week, though I have an occasional side gig on top of that for bonus cash.

Drew, what specifically is inaccurate, and why do you think that? The numbers are right from the Labour Force Surveys in the respective months (Oct 2015, and the most recent Aug 2017 one).

“I met a 25 yr old last week who had worked since he was 16 and still could not afford a car/fuel/insurance to be mobile and seek better work in other locations so he could afford a home for his young family. I told him when I was his age, I had a car, a bike, a mortgage and a secure industrial job with half the tax load he pays. It finally dawned on him who was screwing him over. "

High house prices, insurance, etc, are situations that have come about in the last two years, nor have taxes been “half” their current levels at any point in the last 40. Gas is cheaper than three years ago.

Andrew if the left is so damn good then why do we have to shell out more and more money to them?

Jack Carter and Andrew, if you think the left cares about you , you are deluded.

Jack Carter i hope he does not win, Toronto deserves to suffer.

Andrew your comment is not accurate.

Robert Greely, I know exactly what you mean.

My wording for the link to Brothers Osborne – Ain’t My Fault" should be revised. It should read Trudeau’s treason summed up in a song, when it comes time to answer to the people he will shout It’s not my fault!

The liberals are too busy buying foreign votes with tax dollars.

Laughing at this moment only..There is nothing funny at what these moderate and extremist trudeau/clinton liberalics are forcing into Western Nations…

William Elder, great post.
I graduated from college in 1989 I was offered a full-time job in my field, two weeks before I graduated, commencing at the end of my final exams. I paid my loans off in under two years; then assumed a mortgage at age 22. I had an older vehicle through high school and college & drove it until the motor went and the rest of the car wasn’t all that pretty anymore….Mortgage-free by age 34! This will be next to impossible for young Canadians to accomplish now.
I think we are seeing more people waking up to the fact that Trudeau’s Liberals have stolen their future prospects for prosperity and is bankrupting our nation.

Daryl Herman,

It’s amazing that you used a gay slur and showed how ignorant you are regarding Canada.

Sorry to tell you this Daryl, but Canada is a liberal country and people like you are the vast minority.

You would think Liberals being in power for most of Canada’s existence would be your first clue that perhaps your views are not shared with most Canadians and that you want Canada to be something that it’s not.

You provide all day comedy – every day, so thank you for that.

Wait till they find out Trudeau squandered their social entitlements like pension and their ability to own a home or car on his vanity projects. It will become apparent to them when they have that “what-was-it-like-for-you” talk with Mom and Dad.

I met a 25 yr old last week who had worked since he was 16 and still could not afford a car/fuel/insurance to be mobile and seek better work in other locations so he could afford a home for his young family.

Quick way to turn the youth vote: remind them that they are the ones who will have to begin paying back the billions in additional debt created by Liberal/Baby Doc policies, that these policies also killed any chance for well paying jobs (or jobs for that matter), and they will then have to kiss their iPhones and iPads goodbye (and learn how to use an old fashioned land line).

What’s fascinating is how the Rightists all sink into vitriolic diatribes about nothing when called out on certain claims. I really wonder if you realize that that’s part of your problem.

So, anyway, here’s my response to the only thing here that even tries to argue empirically.

“Ron Christensen commented 13 hours ago
Andrew S commented that the Lieberals had booming economy’s and surpluses . That has got to be the most stupid comment I have ever read . Every time the Lieberals are in power it is the exact opposite. Massive unemployment and deficits under Liberal governments "

On the debt front, there’s only one government, split between two PMs, which left Canada with less total debt than they started with. That was a Liberal government, who turned it around after Mulroney nearly bankrupted the country.
As for “mass unemployment”, our unemployment rate was 7.0% in October 2015. It’s 6.2% today. Unemployment dropped from 1.342m in 10/15 to 1.227m in 8/17. So… yeah, that one doesn’t hold up either.
commented 2017-09-10 12:49:59 -0400
The high youth unemployment will stay for 10 years or more. The youth voted for this and now have it. Many large multi-nationals fled AB, and will never return, as they sold their assets. Hence AB will never return to the days of jobs for all. BC is about to destroy it’s economy and with it, youth jobs. Trudeau is closing down small business, which will kill youth jobs. Ont is a mess. NS/NB still have no industry. Time to hide or flee.

Trudeau is popular in Canada, extraordinarily so. Among young people he is particularly popular.

Kinda pins you as a femme faggot looser like your idol TruDope. Be advised – take your crap & leave – sooner rather than latter. You obviously do not like Canada – so Qatar or Yemen would be a good choice for your sorry ass.
Leave FAST!

Sorry – it should be deficit. Where has the spell checker gone?
commented 2017-09-10 10:15:03 -0400
I hope Andrew has it in him, but so far it looks like he’s a follower and not the strong conservative leader that we really need. We need someone with a backbone and the will to do what is necessary. Doing the right thing is never popular but it is absolutely necessary. I remember when Ralph Klein went after Alberta’s deficiet, the biggest whiners were union workers. He said that his week just wasn’t complete without 2 or 3 groups protesting something. We need someone like Ralph who tells the public the truth, whether or not they like it. Liberals dangle carrots with their lies and deceptions, when their real intent is to destroy people’s lives, and control everthing for their own evil globalist utopia.

Junior is vulnerable. Our Dear Leader, Little Poutine the First, seems to be an ideologue. He is increasingly showing a tendency to take unpopular positions and then dig his feet in. This combined with his innate ability to capsize at any moment, either verbally or in a kayak, makes him an easy target for Smilin Andy Scheer, who I think is a more flexible and pragmatic type of guy. Smilin Andy isn’t great but we have to depose confirmed environmental extremist and Marxist Gerald Butts who has done so much damage to Ontario and Canada.
