Who made Canadian taxpayers the world’s Sugar Daddy?

Some good news related to these problems of the Trudeau Gov’t. A Conservative pollster told me today that the Cons are within 2% of the Liberals. The reasons being the proposed Carbon Tax and
sending our tax dollars to Countries we never heard of, causing Trudeau’s huge deficits.
The other good news is Brad Trost has tabled Bill-C-308 To Sell The CBC. I sent him a donation right away as my favorite, Bernier only wants to downsize the CBC, much like PBS in the US.
Maybe there is still hope for Canada.

Justin should have to take a caning every time he donates to terrorists.

It is certainly easy to spend other people’s(in this case taxpayer’s) money. And then he turns around and slam the carbon tax on us! Is that how the Liberals plan to get to their 30Billion deficit??
commented 2016-11-24 18:58:03 -0500
Just think what 7.5 million could have done for enhancing education and training for the youth of our First Nations and Indigenous peoples who could have then entered the workforce in the construction and public works, tourism, accommodation and food services, and entrepreneurship sectors. Justin must lose sleep at night over how he can get that seat at the UN table with all the other crony despots. What an embarrassment!

Why are we borrowing money to give it away. My kids and grandkids are going to hate you when they realize what you have done.
commented 2016-11-24 17:06:28 -0500
Sure is an odd thing these same Lieberals are the ones screaming about Trump or Leitch ideas – how about applying that logic to our own people and infrastructure???
What a bunch of Libtard useless skin!!
It is time to hang treasonous traitors!!

Charity begins at home and we have so many needy here because of the present government..
When the governing administration gives away hundreds of millions to China who incidentally doesn’t need it and I guarantee you the dictator of that country put Canadian taxpayer money directly into his pocket, millions and millions to Madagascar and millions and millions and millions to all foreign nations who hold their hand out and some of these nations are directly enemies to the country of Canada. It is a slap in the face of our needy and working poor at home. The taxpayer base doesn’t agree with how our money’s being spent and thinks they’re helpless to do anything about it but bitch and complain.
Our Trudeau administration is clearly out of control and needs to be brought to heal by the governor general… That is his position, to protect the people of this country. Maybe we should hold him to task.

On this very topic, here’s an email I received the other day. It’s very close to my heart because OAS and CPP is all I have to live on:

“How will we spend the 55 cent increase in OAS? About all you can do is Vote. Or try the local MLA Provincially as well as Federal. Collectively we may get it through to them. Has everyone decided how they will spend the 55 cent a month increase in our Old Age Security at the end of January? We read all the jokes and forward the good ones, but I just wonder who will pass this one on. How about you sending it on, if you have nerve to do so. Be happy to be of the 1%. Someone please tell me what is wrong with all the people who run this country!!! CONSERVATIVES & LIBERALS & NDP, say "We’re “broke” and can’t help our own… Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, Etc.,??? In the last few years we have provided direct cash aid to:
Hamas – $351 M,
Pakistan – $2 B,
Libya – $1.45 B,
Egypt – $622 M,
Russia – $380 M,
Haiti – $1.4 B,
Jordan – $463 M,
Kenya – $816 M,
Sudan – $870 M,
Nigeria – $456 M,
Uganda – $451 M,
Congo – $359 M,
Ethiopia – $981 M,
South Africa – $566 M,
Senegal – $698 M,
Mozambique – $404 M,
Zambia – $331 M,
Kazakhstan – $304 M,
Iraq – $1.08 B,
Tanzania – $554 M,
With literally Billions and they still hate us! In total Canada spends over 5 Billion a year on direct cash support of foreign aid, and 20 Billion on Immigration & Refugee programs. Our retired seniors are living on a ‘fixed income’. Do they get any breaks while our government pours hundreds of billions and tons of food to foreign countries? We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans. AUSTRALIA , UK , THE USA & CANADA – countries where we have homeless persons, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication and mentally ill without treatment… etc. YET- We still allow illegals & other free loaders on our shores, while we are lining up with food, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies for them. Imagine if the “GOVERNMENT” gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries."

Foreign Aid; The practice of taking money from poor people in a rich country, and giving it to rich people in a poor country.

I thought the Liberals were elected for Canada. I could pinpoint 100 times the number of citizens that could benefit from that type of help. Total waste of tax dollars, but then again, that prestigious UN security council seat Trudeau covets is expensive.

So Baby Doc and company borrow billions of dollars on our backs and simply give money away whenever they visit another country.

We know Baby Doc desperately wants a seat at the UN Security Council, and his government spares no effort (or dollar) to enhance his chances of obtaining that self-glorification goal. The former bouncer and former part-time drama teacher is reaching for his golden ring.

When Mr. Harper left office, he left a $7.5 billion surplus. Since Baby Doc took over, we are now facing over $30 billion in deficit. Essentially, $37.5 billion gone. Does he care? Does he still believe that budgets balance themselves?

Why is he so interested in jobs and infrastructure for other nations more so than Canada? Is he really so ignorant of what the priorities are of a PM? So far he has straddled us with massive debt, taken every financial advantage that his and his ministers can, destroyed the oil industry, is ending the coal industry, given more than $2 billion toward “climate change”, given our funds to any nation that is not Western in philosophy, brought in virtually unvetted “refugees” at our cost and most are now going on already over extended welfare systems, but hey, he looks good to Obama and friends.

He wants Canada to be the shinning light to the world – in ending global warming. Just wait for the upcoming “carbon tax”. Just wait for it to hit $50 a tonne.

(Green house gases are mostly water vapour (97%(. Of the remaining 3%, 3% is CO2. Planet earth produces 97% of the annual CO2. Canada produces 1.5% of all man produced CO2. When you think of it, and how much volume the atmosphere takes up, it really doesn’t matter. But regardless, we are being nailed with a carbon tax.

FYI, the amount of green house water vapour in the atmosphere is five times the total amount of water in streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans combined.)

He is going to the meeting of French speaking countries. Kiss another few million goodbye.

I really wish he and his ministers stopped travelling. They spend less when they stay at home. Usually spend more time defending their entitlements, of which we know they believe they are entitled to have. And hey, not flying means less CO2, right?

I instinctively just know this is going to fund anti western slogans and actions
