Edmonton Sun - - COMMENT -

Well, Justin Trudeau has pre­sented his cam­paign prom­ises. Ev­ery­thing from send­ing peo­ple camp­ing to tick­ets for entertainm­ent when you reach 12 years old. There is no talk of bal­anc­ing the bud­get any more be­cause they couldn’t do it for 2019 as promised and they don’t know how. That’s even more ob­vi­ous with his an­nounce­ments. Bud­gets are a thing of the past for Mr. Trudeau. That’s the new mes­sage to send to our young peo­ple. You can’t get ahead un­less you spend. So go out there, use your credit card and buy. You don’t have to pay it off. Just keep pay­ing the in­ter­est. You’ll be in a lot of debt but the credit card hold­ers will be happy. That’s where we are at with Mr. Trudeau. Let’s keep the Bank of Canada happy. Us peo­ple can just keep on pay­ing higher and higher taxes to cover in­ter­est costs while at the same time telling us that he is all about mak­ing life eas­ier for the mid­dle class and the un­der­priv­i­leged. Money does not grow on trees. Be­ware of the wolf in sheep’s cloth­ing. He will get you in the end!
