WATCH: Details of Justin Trudeau’s inaugural budget … NOT a good day for taxpayers

Brian LilleyArchive

After spending the day in lock-up for Justin Trudeau’s inaugural budget, I bring you the good, the bad and the ugly in detail.

We already knew that the Liberals would stray from their promise of three small deficits of $10B but we didn’t know how high they would go.

Well, now we do and I really wasn’t far off in my prediction of $30B but watch my video for the gory details.

Conservative leader Rona Ambrose said this was a bad day for Canadian taxpayers and even Tom Mulcair criticized the Liberals for breaking their promise about keeping business taxes down for small businesses.

But, let’s be honest - the Liberals aren’t interested in helping people get jobs. They’re only interested in spending your money. They’re pretty good at doing that if nothing else.

Justin Trudeau needs to go he is a disgrace to the liberal`s and his family.
Worst of all he has disgraced the whole of CANADA as A Nation .
We are the true north strong and free. not Greece of the north.
His father was bad enough but to support TERRORIST is only the damnation of a

This is a bad day, is right. However, what can we do. trudeau lied when he said he would listen to what Canadians wanted. He forgot to tell us how much his ideas would cost us by handing out all this free money, that is not going to be taxed either.
It is not like Trudeau is going to listen to Canadians. He is not investing our money, just giving it away with no return.
Keeping people on welfare longer and Unemployment insurance benefits longer.
That will surely give people incentive to find jobs. This is remarkable.
Lets pay for Muslim refugees for one whole year.
None of this is investing in Canada’s economy. It is just giving money away.
Where is all of this money coming from when it is payback time. We cannot believe the Liberals financial planning will stay at a minimum, because it is off the rails already.
I hope Chretien, x prime minister. is not putting his two cents worth in. He had such bad policies. The liberal party sucks at making money and excels in spending it.

This is not so good news. However, what can canadians do about this. ABSOLUTELYNOTHING.

Yvette Mozol commented
“Is there not another federal election in 2019 (4yrs)? Since Trudeau is predicting the deficit amt for 20-21does he have a crystal ball? He’s so sure of himself that he will be automatically reelected. A little pompous on his part wouldn’t you say. In the campaign, they promised & promised & now their response to all the spending is that the people voted them in because of all their promises. "

When history is not heeded it is repeated. Look at the political maneuvering and meddling from forces (both of foreign and domestic) prior to the fed election. Look at the province (i.e.: Alberta, Ontario, Quebec – the major players of the game), prior to and after their last provincial election, then at Canada as a whole. Revamped National Socialism is the theme though they [now] in power would never admit such. If the new holds true to the standard of historical [old] National Socialism then any electoral events will be for show only (all with a predetermined outcome). None of this comes as a surprise but rather a given when the majority ignore what their leaders DO versus what they SAY (promise). Nietzsche wrote that man (as in mankind) are of herd mentality. We see this to be the realization of truth for most are uninterested beyond their small scope of grazing until it is too late.

Not to worry. At the rate the Liebranos are importing the adherents of the violent “religion of peace” culture into Canada no one will notice their impoverishment whilst under the heel of an islamist state! Assuming there will be non – muslims left to notice!

In the campaign, they promised & promised & now their response to all the spending is that the people voted them in because of all their promises. That’s crap, I would say many voted for the pot legalization only, others because of global warming, others because of other cockamamie junk, so it’s a myth that they were voting for everything promised, however that’s always their defence for their reckless policies.
This budget was designed to cater to their favorite people & the rest of us well I guess we’re not important enough or we don’t deserve anything. Thanks for nothing Mr. Trudeau.

NDP YOUSUCKS, there isn’t one logical thing you said there. Basically you said, hurry up I want to get high. That was the ‘good part’.

I think this was a great budget for all of Canada. Who cares about those westerners in Edmonton. Gerald doesn’t like them and that’s good enough for Justin. CBC was topped up appropriately for their stature as the preeminent broadcaster in the country. The only problem I have is why is it taking so long to get marijuana approved.

I checked out some other links to get more info. The first one I opened I laughed and laughed.
This was the first thing I read:
Education and textbook credits – The budget eliminates the education and textbook tax credits that students have been entitled to claim. The tuition tax credit remains intact. This change begins Jan. 1, 2017.
What caused the laughter was that I remembered reading about a number of students that aggressively pushed other students to vote Liberal (in Ontario) before the election. Looks good on them that they lost this credit!!

What Wynne did to Ontario Junior just did to all of Canada, hope the morons that voted liberal will enjoy all the tax increases clear across the board to pay for Junior’s budget. Buckle up Liberal babes in Ontario you get a double whammy, Wynne and her sidekick in crime – Junior.
To all the Liberals in Ontario I have but one thing to say – In the words of Nelson Muntz, “HA! HA!”

Senate independent Liberal Percy Downe, who has pressed for a crackdown on overseas tax evasion, said he’s not surprised public servants took part in the project. Employees regularly contacted him in his battle to get CRA to calculate the “tax gap.”

He said senior management, not the employees, should be on the hook and accountable for what’s happened to the agency. “Management has a lot to answer for in doing little to protect the erosion of the tax system,” he said.

It’s sad to see the vast majority of Canadian’s saying, this budget does nothing for them, what benefits do I get? The answer is very simple and we owe a debt of thanks to this visionary Liberal team.
YOU get the benefit of saving the planet from global warming by contributing to the Liberals, “green jobs,” “green infrastructure,” “green projects,” “green funds,” “green investments,” “green bonds,” and the many other Liberal “revenue streams” to be unveiled soon. Not to mention the satisfaction YOU will get for taking “THE HIT” so someone with a Liberal connection can live large. The Liberal Party of Canada thanks you.

Terry geezer

If it helps you to hear this, just yesterday I spoke to two people who have recently turned their backs on junior. One said she wished he had said during the election that he was going to be protecting the dual citizenships of jihadis, so she would not have voted for him. Another i finally cracked using the refugee issue. I got him to read this site and infowars and he is angry about being lied to and he is scared for his kids.

To both of them i said that if u do not do politics between elections, politics will do u. We just have to keep working and repairing the average and opening their eyes. We will turf junior

Justin redefined “middle class” before his election, " infrastructure" after it, and now"budget". The media have become allied with the Liberals to the point of becoming mere lap dogs of the PMO. Canadians have been dummied down to the point that few will challenge this obfuscation. What we have been given recently is a Spending Program since a budget requires a timetable to reduce or remove a deficit so created by a true budget. Spend, spend into a state of constant fiscal imbalance until we wake up and find that we are North Greece and begging our neighbours to feed and cloth us. God help our nation.

What a screw job. Oh well like Junior’s Daddy used to say “We can only be Justin our time.”

Once again I sincerely congratulate all those Liberal voters (6.9 M) for making this poor seniors’ years much more sunny than it would have been! I am quite sure that if you ask the rest of the electorate
(10. 6 M) they will be falling all over you to thank you as well. What is a miserly $30 billion per year/$90 billion at the end of 3 years? And that $0.5+ billion to the CBC? Kudos to you, Liberals, for propping up your mainstream propaganda tool!
There is so much good in this budget, that tears of joy are streaming from my eyes! In fact, so many tears that I cannot see any faults with this budget. I think the coup d’etat was that $8 billion earmarked for Canada’s indigenous peoples! And, to think that you even had sufficient intellectual abilities to repeal that dastardly Conservative accountability act!
With the Canadian national debt approaching $1 trillion (if not there), it would take 1000 years to pay off the debt if the government was able to reduce it by $1 billion per year. So, Liberal voters, how many generations is that? Since you and this government are so very, very, very good at math, I will leave it to calculate that. (SARCASM)

Lets get some facts straight, “Income Tax” was claimed to be for the payment of “Social Insurance” programs and everyone was forced to pay regardless of the need of or desire of coverage. We also have a “Progressive” tax scheme that penalizes the individual by increasing the amount they have to pay the more they make rather then having the people that use the programs paying for the coverage they wish to purchase. Now we have a dictatorship, top of the party down rule voted in to the puppet leadership role but controlled by foreign banksters that directly benefit from over spending.. Ya this will work just fine!

Junior always said that the legacy of Senior had to be returned. The high debt payment legacy of Senior, that took 30 years to control, is back with a vengeance.

Brian, you are a welcome voice of reason in a desert full of hypocrisy and lies. The Liberals have ensured that the CBC will continue to be a strong propaganda tool for the Liberal party. A friend (Trudeau supporter) was over yesterday saying how wonderful the budget was. I listened in silence and changed the subject. A dreadful insanity has enveloped this country. I am very fearful for my homeland.
