Maclean’s on the Hill: In conversation with Doug Ford

  1. You guys got clobbered….because you weren’t paying attention…..that’s what happened.

    I think some resignations are in order.

  2. Justin Trudeau has 4 years to undo some of the mess & fix the economy that was left by the Conservatives & Harper to ensure that the next time Canadians will pick the Liberals. In the last 10 years 2 Canadians have been killed by terrorism and the Conservative government has spent in excess of $12.9 billion; in 2015 alone 78,000 Canadians will die from cancer…I think it is well past time to get our priorities straight.
    Legalizing marijuana will increase revenues, increase tourism and decrease the costs of incarceration.
    If the Liberals fix the mess that is the Senate (not by abolition but merely by changing the way the senators get paid) it will mean that the treasury will save money, the senators will be forced to show up and do their job and the legislation arm will indeed have oversight for important pieces of legislation.
    Mr. Trudeau has 4 years to show Canadians he cares more about all of them than about a party.
