Justin Trudeau raises expectations


In an op-ed for the Star, Justin Trudeau focuses on the middle class.

So what would a new Liberal agenda look like? First, it will be based on evidence, not ideology. This may be an old-fashioned idea in today’s political climate, but I believe that policy should be based on facts. The problems that middle class Canadians are facing are real and complex. They won’t be solved with simple, easy answers.

So what will an evidence-based, fact-based policy agenda look like? What will it mean for, say, the GST? What about corporate taxes? Or carbon pricing? Or crime policy? It’s a very interesting standard to insist on.
