Trudeau must look forward at incoming Trump, not backwards at lame duck Biden

Brian LilleyArchive

There is about to be a new sheriff in town south of the border when Donald J. Trump takes office in January. Meanwhile in Ottawa, our sheriff is still fawning over outgoing U.S. President Obama and his assorted hangers on like VP Joe Biden who arrived in the middle of a snowstorm this week.

Why is Biden in Canada at all and why is Justin Trudeau taking time away from meetings with the premiers to hang with Uncle Joe?

Well, Trudeau told the story while fawning over himself during a dinner he threw in Biden’s honour.

Referring to himself as eye candy, makes me wonder if Trudeau has his own Justin cardboard cut out to take selfies with.

No doubt, Trudeau loves the ongoing bromance with Obama and Biden, who essentially said with Trump in power, the world needs more Canada and more of Justin Trudeau.

We all love getting compliments but Justin should consider the source. After next month Biden is going to be just another unemployed politician.

Meanwhile all this fawning over the Obama-Biden set does nothing to help Canada deal with the Trump administration.

Watch as I lay out all the issues President-elect Trump has identified which will affect Canada.

Trudeau is promising a carbon tax and increasing the tax rate for many small businesses but tax cuts and reducing regulations, spur growth and jobs. Thatcher, Reagan, Mulroney and even Chretien proved that and Trump is about to embark on a similar path.

Trudeau meanwhile is looking to the bad old days of his father’s regime with more taxes, more regulation, higher government spending and bigger deficits which will mean fewer jobs and less wealth.

It’s time to stop living in the past Mr. Trudeau – whether borrowing your father’s bad ideas or trying to keep your bromance alive with Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

It’s time to look forward and time to change course, because if you don’t, average Canadians will be hurting as they pay the price for your bad decisions.

There are two streams of thought behind Biden’s words:
1. What Fraser said: The globalists have something up their sleeve…perhaps a coup against Trump?
2. What Stephan said: Bidon is just massaging Justin’s ego so he continues his carbon taxing and destroys the competitiveness of Canada – which would benefit the US economy.

I agree Fraser, something is going on. And I’ll bet the globalists are conspiring. This does not look good.

unfortunately the puppet and the public do not understand America.America looks out for America. THe Vice President and the rest of the Americans see that the idiot we have is going to tax the hell out of this country and put us at a major disadvantage with very expensive Canadian goods. Biden is here to reinforce the puppet’s ideas and back him 100% so America ends up selling more to us than we to them. American activists along with the Indians are also helping to block Canada in developing gas oil ,lng, and mineral resources. America has now developed their lng plant and is now selling lng around the world and we are still sitting on the side lines. This is how America operates. And our selfie king cnt see past his feminist nose

Trudeau is an evil self-absorbed narcissistic with the IQ of a potted plant…… and he’s our leader. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic.
