It feels like the actions of the Canadian government make less sense each day.
Almost like the government is re-arranging deck chairs while they are aboard a sinking Titanic.
First, it was the $10.5 million government payout to Omar Khadr, a man convicted by the American government of the murder of American Sgt. Christopher Speer and of other charges related to terrorist activity… on the grounds of “human rights.”
Then came the cycle of broken promises, poorly designed taxes, hefty regulations, and stalled pipelines which have managed to both hurt our long-term growth and stifle Canada competitiveness relative to our southern neighbour.

Even worse, liberal policies have literally placed our businesses as the last priority. According to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF), “Ottawa is holding Canadian oil to a higher standard than foreign oil that is imported to Canada.”
Now, while our economy continues to be a second priority to virtue signalling, our veterans and soldiers face heaps of Liberal mismanagement and disrespect.
First, being taken to court and being told they “ask for too much.” Then continuing to maintain wildly inadequate spending levels, placing our armed forces in direct risk when deployed.
We now have a crumbling navy; our airforce consists of ageing jets which are being replaced by slightly less ageing Australian jets, making it seem like to me at least, that the Federal government believes that asking for anything might be “too much.”
There are even attacks on the bedrock of our society, the family unit.
For example, Service Canada the government’s “service transformation initiative aimed at responding to Canadians’ expressed desire for better, more responsive, less cluttered service”, recently imposed, and then walked back on a ban on gender-specific terms like ‘father’ or ‘mother’, ‘Mr.’ or ‘Mrs.’ from all telephone communications.
All for what?
The Liberals “promise” that their government would actually be led by data and facts.
Instead, it seems like those promises are nothing than a mirage.
In the place of those promises, we have a government that destroys our long-term economic prospects while regulating culture and language in order to retain power within a continuously shrinking base.
None of this makes sense, and none of this is needed. Canada is a country with capable people and vast resources.
The government has completely lost focus of the fact that its purpose is to provide a path to prosperity for its citizens.
Instead, it spends mass amounts on foreign causes or celerity issues with no regard to efficiency or cost.
The recent budget is a perfect example of this. When our American neighbour cut taxes and gut Canadian companies, our government responded by providing a benefit for female CEO’s.
Men will be replaced with female leaders.
This is the government’s decision to deal with rising competition to American tariffs and low wage American labour. However, no matter who leads, they will still face the same terribly unjust, competitive markets, which the government continues to ignore.
There are many more illogical moments.
Canada spends billions attempting to reconcile with native communities but then refuse to discuss the need to ensure accountability or safety for native whistleblowers.
They tell their own party that no MP can hold views in opposition to abortion, then move forward with massive arms deals with nations like Saudi Arabia, and maintain open lines of communication with nations like Iran.
The list of irrationality continues to go on, but I believe their track record now speaks for itself.
This government portrays itself as a moral warrior when the camera is on, but can’t stand on its own two feet when confronted with real issues. They have forgotten the majority of citizens of this country.
In the most straightforward sense, they lack authenticity, consistency, or any grasp of common sense governing.
