Prime minister’s priorities out of sync

A little over six months ago Canadians bought into Justin Trudeau’s pledge of “real change” and gave him a majority government

A little over six months ago Canadians bought into Justin Trudeau’s pledge of “real change” and gave him a majority government. It is becoming increasingly  clear that Canadians voted in a government of misplaced priorities, Liberal values as opposed to real Canadian values and a commitment to  the culture of death.

We now have a prime minister who majors in meaningless rhetoric and an empty claim of believing in true democracy, transparency and openness. When you cut off debate on as important and sensitive a social issue as the assisted suicide bill, disallow the electorate any say in electoral reform and force your MPs to support abortion, how then are you to be taken seriously as a true believer in democratic freedom?

When you think it more prudent to use Canadian tax dollars to fund abortion overseas  as opposed to providing real necessities such as clean water and basics for life, and conveniently forget that half of status First Nations children in Canada live in poverty, should we commend you for good judgement or moral integrity?

Canadians are now sadly learning that the “real change” they thoughtlessly voted for translates into misplaced Liberal priorities such as legalizing marijuana, deficit spending, transgender rights, misguided immigration policy, euthanasia and a continuing erosion of our democratic rights and freedoms. Yes-no-maybe politics are in and real priorities vital to the prosperity and well being of the country, such as decisions on pipelines, jobs and the seriousness of national security, are sadly non-priorities for this prime minister.

Hopefully there are still enough Canadians who still believe in honesty, integrity and morality and enough of us who prefer life to death to make the difference in the next election.
