Trump gives rural America its due while Canada’s politicians put farmers in poor house

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

President Donald Trump is bringing about a rural American Renaissance, while in Canada, Justin Trudeau and Rachel Notley are taxing farmers into the poor house.

Trump made major announcements at this week's American Farm Bureau annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee. Included in a long list of beneficial measures for rural Americans is raising the estate tax exemption to $11M, eliminating the largest barrier for young farmers taking over the family business.

President Trump hasn't forgotten that Middle America delivered him the White House and he's keeping his promises.

But in progressive Canada, farmers are getting the Canadian version of the estate tax with Finance Minister Bill Morneau's so-called tax reforms on corporations and changes to capital gains.

While American farmers are getting tax breaks and regulatory repeals, Alberta farmers got another hike in the carbon tax and are busy sorting out the punitive and expensive safety regulations in Bill 6.

While Trump focuses on the opioid crisis to make living in rural America safer, Premier Notley ignored rural Alberta’s violent crime victims as they sat in the legislature demanding an emergency debate about the crime epidemic.

Andrew Stephenson you continue to prove your ignorance. And you demonstrate that the left hates to lose their slaves.

AS, interesting link
Have used the h-2a program myself for 16 consecutive years and it beats the hell out of trying to get foreign workers in Canada.

- Farmers are independent people. Socialists prefer dependent people.

This is the difference between a leader of a country who cares for his people and The Clown Prince of the Lieberal Party, Justin Mohammed Trudeaup.

Iain, here is another distinction; Trump has the Democrats and even his own Party trying to get in his way while Trudeau has a friendly Media and Andrew Scheer trying to help him in his destruction.

Andrew, have you ever left the metropolis or even been to the market, whether it is in the city, or in most towns every week? That would be local produce Andrew. As for the “Mexicans”, if they are illegal, out they go. If the farmers can pay more to hire locally, that appears what Trump is enabling, then that would be good. If you think they are just rich and greedy farmers, then I suggest you visit a farm as it appears you have not.

With the way Baby Doc Trudeau, The Fool On Parliament Hill, is poking Trump and playing smarter-than-thou at the NAFTA discussions, we are in for big trouble in all sectors including farming.

Our Idiot In Charge in Ottawa, along with the Idiots In Charge in BC, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and Nova Scotia, we are sort of really screwed.

Wait… is that someone playing Taps for Canada? Oh dear.

To further make my point, I guess Ms. Stephenson has never been to a Saturday farmer’s market in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island?… All except the canola, flax and wheat are readily available…

Love those sweeping generalizations by Ms. Stephenson being put out there as supposed reality:- “Other than the stuff that’s supply managed or protected from dumping by arbitrary standards, I can’t find a lot that’s been grown domestically.” Gee lady so sorry for you… In Canada, milk, cheese, eggs, chicken and turkey are “supply managed”… But I can readily also find GROWN RIGHT HERE IN CANADA, everything from potatoes, grapes, hops for beer, mutton, goats, peaches, apples, canola, flax, broccoli, mushrooms, oysters, garlic, corn, and yes, wheat – glorious wheat… As Al Peterson stated – I gather you don’t get out much?…

Trump is doing the right thing for farmers in the US, so of course Justin just has to do the exact opposite. It is criminal what the liberal government is doing to the family farm. It is a crime against these families and a crime against the country. It’s a deliberate move to chase farmers off and take over their farms.
Justin for treason. Morneau and Justin need to have their personal financial tomfoolery exposed. Hypocrites!

Other than the stuff that’s supply managed or protected from dumping by arbitrary standards, I can’t find a lot that’s been grown domestically.

Andrew, I take you don’t get out of downtown much? Out here in flyover country the fields are full on both sides of the border. Maybe you should take a drive some day.

I wonder if Reid’s heard the complaining among American farmers about Trump scaring away their workers?

Andrew, if urbanites are willing to pay more for their food to improve the lives of the workers they claim to care so much about, I’m sure the Farmers would be happy to pay a wage that would attract people to the farms. Feel free to start art ball rolling. Pay a little extra for the kids.

Iain Foulds—Thanks for the link to the Sun story on Trudeau’s weaknesses.
By the time I get a Sun Newspaper, its a week old.

Andrew, thanks for the link.
To me, it would seem a regulated guest worker program would be much better than undocumented, illegal migrants. Work during the busy seasons, return home…repeat a few times and if the person has no conflicts with the law, perhaps they can receive a closer look if he/she is wanting to immigrate to the US.

So where are the “Smash the Fash” people here … why are they not after Morneau? Just asking

Andrew Stephenson said in part, "I wonder if Reid’s heard the complaining among American farmers about Trump scaring away their workers? Turns out pretty much the only people willing to actually work on farms were Mexican. "

Care to back that up Andrew?!

“I wonder what the urban liberals would say if the farmer went on strike and stopped growing any food… "
Other than the stuff that’s supply managed or protected from dumping by arbitrary standards, I can’t find a lot that’s been grown domestically. At that point, Trump’s efforts to get cheaper American dairy onto our shelves would probably be a win for the rest of us.

Great report Sheila.
I wonder if Bill Morneau worked for free at Morneau Shepell….why does he think sons and daughters working on family farms should work for free?!!!!

Ranching and farming is not a job, it is a lifestyle, and most people don’t have the parts for it.
Urban liberals will never understand this because they live so far removed from the land…and reality
In Canada 85 to 90% of people live in urban centers.
The 10 to 15 % of us who don’t live in urban centers are what I like to call THE DISENFRANCHISED RURAL MINORITY…and we’re hooped!
I wonder what the urban liberals would say if the farmer went on strike and stopped growing any food…

And that is why rural Canada usually votes Conservative – however with the present Conservative cuck leader it is six of one, half dozen of the other.

Not much more than a lieberal in disguise.

Never blame the politicians – especially the islamic lieberal politicians.

Blame the stupid sonsabitches that put them there.
