Tyler Meredith he is a long time Liberal Party partisan. In fact, he’s the senior policy advisor to the Liberal Caucus and the ex-advisor for economic and social policy for PM Justin Trudeau.
In an attempt to shut up pesky westerners who are sick and tired of the abuse and mistreatment we are taking from a federal government that blocks pipelines, scapegoats gun owners and takes more than it gives, he sent numerical evidence of Prince Trudeau's benevolence towards the serfs west of Winnipeg:
The neat thing about the Public Accounts of Canada - they’re irrefutable facts. WESTERN ECONOMIC DIVERSIFICATION - that is the corporate welfare arm of the feds for western Canada by the way - (Total funds used) 2014-15 (Harper): $162.0 Million 2017-18 (Trudeau): $227.1 Milllion. 40% increase under Trudeau. And in Budget 2018 even more added.
You got that? Shut up, Westerners about your jobs. Shut up about your business insolvencies and your suicide rates. Be grateful.
TONIGHT I'll take a closer look at these "irrefutable facts," and share some others Meredith neglected to mention.
