Trudeau’s Liberals embrace radical ideas in LEAP manifesto Mulcair rejected

Brian LilleyArchive

It's been said that New Democrats were Liberals in a hurry. Then, Trudeau’s Liberals campaigned to the left of the NDP and now the LEAP manifesto has echoes of Trudeau advisor Gerald Butts in it which has me wondering, is it the other way around now? 

During the election, Trudeau promised deficit spending, higher taxes and a very left wing agenda. I didn't realize how left until I thought about the LEAP manifesto a bit more.

Here’s what the radicals behind the LEAP manifesto write about energy policy:

"There is no longer an excuse for building new infrastructure projects that lock us into increased extraction decades into the future."

Doesn’t that sound an awful lot like Gerry Butts, top advisor to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who called for a zero carbon economy?

Butts made that statement when he was head of the World Wildlife Fund. He also signed onto a document calling for an end to infrastructure that would support the "Tar Sands." Joining him as a signatory on that document was Marlo Raynolds, then head of the Pembina Institute, now Chief of Staff to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.

So is the LEAP manifesto just not that radical now? Or is it that the Liberals are now that radical?

The answer is easy: The Liberals have become radicals.

Watch as I make connections to some of Trudeau's radical ministers that demonstrate their radical views and tie it all to the LEAP manifesto.

Trudeau and company have departed from decades of Liberals who are centrists and become Liberals pushing harder for socialism than the NDP.

And the scary part for Canada is that the Liberals are in charge for four more years.

Will the Rebel take off Dustbin Justin picture form their page?
Every time I go to the page there I see him with his smart asked smile waving or whatever . . .
Put in a cartoon of him instead . . . one that is accurate but funny.

I second that motion!! A cartoon that accurately depicts him and his caucus of clowns and the three ring circus that he has turned the government into.

What the idiots in Ottawa don’t seem to understand is that without jobs, there is no tax revenue. Anyone with a basic understanding of finance knows that you can’t function the way the government is doing right now. These university graduates with degrees in law and liberal arts have no concept of reality. Any idiot understands that the money spent on flying the refugees over to this country would have provided better relief to more people in the camps. But, I am being naive. If they did that, then they would lose all the refugee votes.

What are we supposed to do without the oil patch? There are no other good jobs for the uneducated. My family needs money. I never went to university. I’m not related to any government workers. I’m not getting in at the government trough. I need a strong, functional oil patch or we will be in poverty.

This is insane. We sent away the brains behind the operation at the exact worst time and now we have this idiot steering the ship into the rocks

Did all you liberal voters not see that Trudeau was always a radical.
Look into his past. He maintained his indifference right into the election.
You all bought into his lies and deceit. We are stuck with a lunatic for another 4 yrs.

Also, all you pot lovers and I suspect there are millions of you, had put your need to get high, left your brains for dead, and voted for Trudeau.

What a great reason to vote someone in as a leader of a country.
Look what you have done, you got more than you all bargained for.
You will even have to pay taxes for your drug habit. Ha Ha Ha Ha

Plus, Muslim Refugees who were not even refugee arriving in Canada every day.
None came from the camps as Trudeau said they did. Lies, lies, lies.
Now you are stuck with about 75,000 ……..non refugees.
Money to keep them in this country, being paid for by tax payers.
Welfare money, housing and child care benefits and free medical care. and they do not have to pay a penny back. All they have to do is collect your tax money.
So you can thank Trudeau for your tax woes and tax hikes.

Is anyone really surprised? Trudeau is an air head and like all air heads he has surrounded himself with similarly cerebrally challenged people so that he will not look too stupid. The Liberals in Ottawa will do to Canada over the next four years, what the Liberals have done to Ontario. One can only hope that there will be enough left for the Conservatives to begin to put the country back together again in four years.

gay Justin is on holidays every other week, but his carbon foot print never gets a day off.

The only goal of Justin Trudeau is this-Total Control and Absolute Power-beware this snake in the grass.
The signs are all there. May God help the people of Canada to wake up SOON.

The last great leap of notable fame was Mao’s great leap forward in which 30 million died as a result. The only difference which the one these radical lunatics are cooking up is, the death toll will be much higher.

“The answer is easy: The Liberals have become radicals.”

I’ve been stating that the Liberals are far more left than the NDP for years without the “Butts or LEAP manifesto connection”, the evidence was/is very clear in Ontario. A Liberal is a Liberal no matter the level of government, so if one arm of their party is left wing (radical) it is safe to assume that the majority of the party is cut from the similar cloth (like minded draws like minded as the saying goes). Wynne has proven herself to be a leader that suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder who consistently works beyond the reach of the law (the OPP and the public sector unions are bought and paid for) that caters specifically to her elitist “Liberal friends” (think turbines and gas plant scandal for example) and her special minority pet projects at the expense of the entire province’s financial health and economic well being. She backed Junior heartily both pre and post election, that alone spoke volumes. Then add Junior’s daddy and his machinations, Junior’s upbringing, Junior’s circle of friends, etc. to get an idea, then finally add in the radicals that are in the Fed Lib Party (both old and new). Its rather plain as day, yet most refuse to see it, go figure, guess they personally need it to hit them in the face first to see the whole picture.

As for the comment “Almost 4 years to go” that is actually being optimistic, if Junior messes with the electoral system there will be no way to unseat him or his party from power.

Let us all hope and prey that Trudeau will succumb to sudden death syndrome.

3 1/2 more years of utopian and enforced socialistic ideology rammed down our throats.

I was doing some comparing of the NDP’s “Leap Manifesto”, inspired by Mao’s “Leap Forward” doctrine (which killed 40 million), and Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto.

Eerie similarities in the dream of a government-enforced utopia.
Can’t make this shit up. :-O

Plus a ‘manifesto’ is so Ted Kaczynski-ish.
The NDP are creepy people.

During Chretien’s last yrs as PM, I couldn’t wait for him to be gone & I feel the same way about Justin & he’s only just begun with his destructive policies. Almost 4 yrs to go, can’t stand it.

Senior was a hypocritical regressive socialist. If he had believed in what he made the peon Canadian suffer, he would have donated away his wealth rather than bequeathing it to his offspring…that is socialism in practice. Instead, he was the typical elitist socialist that figured what he preached was good for everybody but him. Junior will be the same, and it amazes me that people fall for his “concern of the middle class”.

I wonder what the Panama papers will show about Junior and his cronies?

Fed liberals are the NDP – mulcair went center and chased his voters over to the radical left – the libranos.

The world is a changed place and marxists/socialists are in vogue to the average rube. What comes next is the financial raping of Canada.

You chose this fkg camp counselor Canada – enjoy the dry run!!
