Leaders Debate: Ezra Levant explains why every Canadian should be worried

Rebel Staff

Stephen Harper — whatever else you may think about him — has a mastery of Canada’s economy. It’s not just that he’s an economist by profession. It’s that he has steered Canada through a series of world economic crises since the 2008 Great Recession. Real life experience — what works and what doesn’t. And unlike his thinly-briefed opponents, he knows exactly how much the government has spent on everything from veterans to bridges. 

 Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair couldn’t care less about reality — they have other things on their minds.

Trudeau need to start managing his own personal budget and not his accountants giving him an allowance. Maybe then he would understand economics.

nulcare and trudope are two of the most disrespectful idiots that I have ever seen in my life. They constantly interrupt and the moderator doesn’t stop them. This sounds like the debate in the USA last night. The only person on the dais with any respect for others is the PM. He makes me very proud and he’s the only one with a plan.
commented 2015-09-17 21:39:25 -0400
Only Stephen Harper, an Oxford-trained economist, is competent to handle the economy is today’s world.
commented 2015-09-17 21:39:20 -0400
Finally, moderator lets Harper speak

Why would the very successful continue to strive to be successful if more than half their income is confiscated by a “just” liberal government. High taxes kill ambition. F###ing idiot Justeen

Harper is just being realistic with what’s going on globally that many countries now are in trouble and yet Canada is still on top of it even in just s slow crawl in going back to the right path! doing the best!
commented 2015-09-17 21:38:31 -0400
John Makowichuk you are bang on! He is what you see! He has the reigns and knows how to run the country!
commented 2015-09-17 21:38:20 -0400
Justin idiot has one answer to every question. say a few words then attack mharper and not answer the question.
commented 2015-09-17 21:38:19 -0400
He reminds you if Obama because of the unrelenting class warfare rhetoric, perhaps?
commented 2015-09-17 21:38:06 -0400
Agree with Harper. The moderator’s premise is false. Increased personal debt, etc is not caused by Harper Government.
commented 2015-09-17 21:38:01 -0400
I’m glad PM Harper keeps actually answering the questions (unlike his opponents)….
commented 2015-09-17 21:37:27 -0400
The basic matter not understood by Tommy, Justin, and the Moderator is that we live in a Global Economy. Only Mr. Harper understands it! The others are way out in La-La-Land!
commented 2015-09-17 21:36:23 -0400
The personal question asked to HARPER was worded way worse than for the other two. THIS DEBATE AND THE MOD ARE A JOKE
commented 2015-09-17 21:36:04 -0400
Even as someone who is only politically involved, now, because I see what’s happening in Alberta….man, I think Harper is kicking the shit out of this credibility-wise, policy-wise, and personality-wise. Am I blinded by the hope he will? Or is he actually DOING it as well as I think he is?
commented 2015-09-17 21:35:54 -0400
Socialists like JT and Mulcair love to talk over their political opponents; that’s what they call freedom of speech.
commented 2015-09-17 21:35:50 -0400
Really no wonder I feel like there is a huge chasm between people in this election, it is being promoted by Justin. The rich against the poor, the working against those not. Justin be careful the rich don’t leave and take their money with them.
commented 2015-09-17 21:35:15 -0400
Both Trudeau and Mulclair lying the asses off. Accusation none of which are based on facts.
This lying is why I never watch these debates!
commented 2015-09-17 21:34:50 -0400
Naked hatred of “The Rich,” Morbid Malignant Envy, Limousine-Liberal Guilt Syndrome, Harper Derangement Syndrome and the psychopathic froth-and-foam-flecked fomenting of everything evil, wrong and failed are surely alive and well in Calgary, this evening.

As are Prime Minister Harper and his Canadia Government’s pursuit of all that is Good and Right and Successful.

Congratulations, Prime Minister Harper.

Way to go Canada!

Where in the heLL is the moderation on this?
commented 2015-09-17 21:34:45 -0400
There is Mulcair with the fictitious 36b cut in health care. What a laugh. The total budget is 43B.
commented 2015-09-17 21:34:38 -0400
Trudeau is an embarrassment. He either fails to comprehend the questions or is unable to answer them. He sounds panicky, revved up on testosterone, fearful of being responded to via an informed person. This fear response manifests itself with a very loud, rhyming of talking points even if the talking points are totally misaligned with the topic. In short he’s out of control.
commented 2015-09-17 21:33:50 -0400
Mulcair is painful to listen to….
commented 2015-09-17 21:33:30 -0400
Zinger #2 from Mulcair
commented 2015-09-17 21:33:21 -0400
I look around and see roads and bridges already. How were these achieved without ‘infrastructure banks’? Anybody believe in the ‘infrastructure fairy’?
commented 2015-09-17 21:33:09 -0400
Oh my God, somebody needs to stop this disgusting debate right now… it’s disturbing…
commented 2015-09-17 21:33:02 -0400
The debt to GDP ratio won’t be relatively low much longer if Trudeau gets his hands on the purse-strings. It’ll be on it’s way to better resemble Portugal, Italy, Greece or Spain.
commented 2015-09-17 21:32:58 -0400
Can Mr. Truedeau please quit interrupting when it is Mr. Harper’s turn… Harper did not interrupt Trudeau… Shut up already Mr.Trudeau

The cost of vertical farms would be prohibitive.
commented 2015-09-17 21:32:40 -0400
Gee. JT’s eyes are glassy! I tink he has been particpating in Whacky Tabacci!
commented 2015-09-17 21:32:35 -0400
where is JT getting his facts about Harpers worst records on this and that……

they just aint true!
