Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just announced the Federal Liberals are dishing out over a billion dollars in federal funding to the City of Ottawa to complete part of their municipal light rail transit project.
Trudeau and Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson held a fancy press conference and the media breathlessly reported on Trudeau’s generosity and foresight for funding a project that brings all Ottawa residents within 5 KMs of light rail transit.
Watson even said it was "historic day" for people in Ottawa who want to rid the city of gridlock and protect the environment.
Historic day? More like Ground Dog Day! This day has already happened once already.
Stephen Harper and his Conservative government announced this billion dollar funding for Ottawa's LRT in July of 2015.
Liberals and their municipal sycophants think we all have some sort of collective amnesia about anything that happened prior to October 19, 2015, when the Liberals won the last election. The mainstream media might have memory-holed the Conservative’s good works, but Canadians haven't.
Trudeau was once a teacher, albeit a part-time drama one, but even he should know it's not alright to take credit for someone else's work.
