Rough Road Ahead?

Conservative MP David Tilson denies his party is playing politics by opposing the Trudeau Liberal government's decision on the UN Global Compact on Migration.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Liberals should be “exceptionally concerned” about the “very negative economic mood right now” in Canada, with potential for a recession in 2019, and the Conservatives’ attempts to paint Liberals as supporters of “unrestricted immigration,” as the combined effect could become a serious problem for the party in the next election.

“There’s a very negative economic mood right now in the country,” said Nik Nanos, president and CEO of Nanos Research in an interview with The Hill Times. “A sitting government presiding over a recession usually is not good news for the sitting government.”

According to the Nanos Research’s weekly rolling poll numbers released last week, the Liberals and the Conservatives were tied in a statistical dead heat. The numbers released on Dec. 7 indicate that the Conservatives had 34.8 per cent support nationally, followed closely by the Liberals with 34.1 per cent. The NDP had the support of 15.8 per cent, and the Green Party support was at 8.2 per cent.

In comparison, only about four weeks ago, the Liberals were leading the Conservatives by a margin of 12 points in the Nanos weekly tracking. According to the Nov. 9 numbers, the Liberals were leading the pack with 39.3 per cent support, followed by the Conservatives with 27.5 per cent support, the NDP had the support of 19.8 per cent, and the Green Party sat at 6.1 per cent.

Mr. Nanos attributed the “notable” drop in Liberal support to the psychological affect of the General Motors auto plant closing in Oshawa, Ont., last month; the low oil prices affecting the Alberta economy; and the slow pace of progress on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, on Canadians’ declining confidence on the state of the country’s economy.

Trudeau said about his government’s lack of funding for Canadian military veterans…. because they “are asking for more than we are able to give right now,” Think about that statement for a moment, folks. Then think about this…

Serge Dupont, a former deputy clerk of the Privy Council Office (PCO), was named senior executive adviser to the prime minister in an order-in-council published on Dec. 6. The order fixed his salary at $1,250 to $1,470 per day.

Not sure where the numbers are coming from but in recent polite conversation turned political in Fort Mac, Grande Prairie and Edmonton the topic is the need to get rid of Trudeau. Sohi just added fuel to fire with his 1.6 billion Lian package. At this point a loan would hurt not help. If you can’t get your product to market a loan to keep the doors open is the wrong way to help.
