It's simple: The first budget from Justin Trudeau's Liberals is a budget for the takers, not the makers.
Old Age retirement eligibility is being reduced by two years. That’s nuts. Life expectancy now is twenty years higher than when public pensions were created, and frankly, boomers are the wealthiest generation in history.
The Court Challenges program is back: taxing ordinary Canadians to pay lawyers to sue the government to expand human rights complaints. Income splitting? Tax credits for kids stuff like sports and arts? Gone.
But a whopping $1.9 billion for arts groups. Not art people want to pay for, though. Obscure, political crap that wouldn’t exist on its own.
This will continue for years — four, and if Justin is reelected, eight.
Don’t tell the low-information millennials who voted for Trudeau, but they’ll be the ones left paying for the debt that Trudeau wracks up, for the rest of their lives.
Professor Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Management joins me today with his candid assessment of the new budget. He says that he isn’t always against deficit spending, but now, when Canada isn’t in economic crisis, stimulate spending is a terrible idea.
Then I talk about President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba with historian Humberto Fontova, an expert of Castro’s Cuba, and on “progressive” hero and mass murderer Che Guevara.
Fontova shares some statistics comparing Castro with Stalin and Hitler that will shock you.
Finally, your messages to me, good and bad -- plus my request that you sign our NEW petition at HonourRobFord.com; we've come up with a way to pay tribute to Toronto's former mayor in a way I think he'd approve up.
