Each day that passes we are one day closer to the end of the Harper government and for me that is enough motivation to work hard on behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and Justin Trudeau.
Mr. Harper’s comments that Liberals have “dangerous ideas” and their proposals are “so extreme they would make the worst European budget look solid in comparison” are childish and ridiculous. Really Mr. Harper, is fear-mongering the best you can do?
Previous Liberal governments implemented a universal health care system, established the Canada Pension Plan, gained the respect of the world through leadership in peace-keeping initiatives, and kept the country out of a needless war in Iraq. And of course, the last nine years Liberals were in office they ran surpluses that ensured Canada was better positioned to withstand the 2008 financial collapse than any other major industrial country.
And what dangerous ideas will a 2015 Liberal government bring to the table? How about national leadership on health care, a focus on income security for an aging population and a compassionate, caring government that makes decisions based on evidenced-based research and social justice for all Canadians.
Continue to fear-monger Mr. Harper and Liberals across Canada will continue to prepare for government in the 21st century. And I will rise every day and celebrate knowing that we are one day closer to the end of the one-man, Harper government.
