Let’s take a look at Trudeau’s progressive accomplishment. He made women comprise 50 % of his cabinet. While this looks impressive from the outside (he made international news with this one) the sad fact of the matter is that Justin still holds 100% of the power in the Liberal Party. So those women are the most powerful female toadies in all of Canada.

Maryam Monsef has been in charge of cross country meetings about electoral reform in Canada for the Liberal government. The Liberal party vowed to change systems to one that is fairer to voters by next election. She started the consultations at the end of August. On September 22 of the same year it began to be broadcasted that Monsef (or whoever acted on her behalf) had incorrectly filled out her immigration paperwork as having been born in Afghanistan while really being born in Iran.
This incorrect paperwork means that Maryam Monsef is at risk of being deported. With such a tenuous position Monsef has echoed the prime minister to a T even saying that there was no broad majority of opinions when 88 % of the speakers were for proportional representation. If the government wants a broader consensus than that it is up to them to hold a clear referendum or do a true consultation with Canadians. The cards they sent in the mail and the poll it takes at the referred website is a joke. This is not democracy.

The electoral reform committee came back with its decision that proportional representation is the favoured mode of governance and a clear referendum could now be put to all the voters. The Liberals on the committee called its findings “radical” when some of our closest countries have democracies that work quite well with proportional representation. Again the Liberals are just being toadies to Justin Trudeau.
Trudeau’s policies have consisted of policy that is just as far right as the last government
The rest of Trudeau’s policies have consisted of policy that is just as far right as the last government under Stephen Harper. Sure Trudeau says he is going to push this that or the other progressive scheme but he doesn’t deliver. Meanwhile he has approved more pipelines than Harper. It is a push. What do I think Trudeau is really gunning for? I think he wants the rich, rich party donations that Harper used to get. For years the other parties were afraid of his advertising war chest. This is what I believe Trudeau covets most. And that, sadly, is the place he appears to be coming from.
