The 2019 Canadian national election has become an election about what we want Canada to be in the future. However, the greatest result of this year’s election will be the standard that we choose for our leaders and other Canadians. Very simply, what values do we want to live by, what laws, morals, behaviour and how do we want to treat others?
Who we elect will have much greater impact than any economic consequence. For the sake of Canada’s future, know what you’re voting for and be prepared to live with the consequences, which you will hopefully better understand by the end of this article.
Our next Prime Minister will be the standard and role model, which most Canadians will live by and our children will likely follow the values that Prime Minister depicts. Even the court system could be influenced by the precedence set by a Prime Minister’s behaviour. Deciding how do you want our children and other Canadians to behave will help you make the right decision in electing a Prime Minister:
- break the law when it suits them
- change the rules or laws to suit their personal beliefs and habits
- use bullying and deceit to get their way
- attack people that don’t agree with them, even close friends, supporters and team members
- lie to you repeatedly about what they’ve done
- do the opposite of what they say they’re going to do
- focus on spending money, rather than responsibly managing money
- alienate individuals from each other
- say whatever you want to hear in order to get something from you
- pay others to be their friends
- demean other cultures
- have a sense of entitlement
- make financially responsible and economically sustainable decisions
- protect us from impaired criminals
How do you want your children and other Canadians to act and which candidate for Prime Minister best depicts that behaviour?
The Confusion – Understanding The Underlying Situation
On the eve of the election most Canadians are facing a tough choice as to who to elect as Prime Minister. Unfortunately, the information that’s surfaced over the last year about Justin Trudeau and his behaviour is enough to put the average Canadian in a confusing turmoil of thoughts and emotions. For this reason, in order to understand the importance of this election, it is necessary to look at what has been revealed to Canadians through the media:
- Influence peddling by Trudeau himself
- Demoting and bullying of woman who wouldn’t support Trudeau’s illegal actions (such as Jody Wilson-Raybould, the Canada’s then Attorney General).
- Demeaning of Indian and Black Canadian population
Then there are the more fundamental consequences to Canadian society:
- The cannabis tax grab and its societal impact
- Damaged relationships with major countries (U.S.A., India, Saudi Arabia, China, etc.)
- Undermining of Canadian judicial system
- Undermining of Canadian democracy.
- Financial and economic cost to tax-payers of the Carbon Tax
More Taxes For Utopia
For most voters these considerations would be enough to vote the Liberals out of office… if they truly understood what they mean. However, the Liberals have done an excellent job at deflecting from what they’re really doing by using a fairy tale vision of an Utopian society. Unfortunately, their isn’t a plan, only belief that if more money is collected from tax payers and spent that Canadian society will be better.
Has Wealth Disparity Worsened?
In the process, it seems the wealth disparity has grown greater under the Liberal government, especially with the billions made by the few who have invested in Cannabis related stocks and ventures, and those that are benefiting from carbon tax credits. The average Canadian is finding it harder and harder to save money and many have been taking on debt to just make ends meet.
A Divisive Election
The Liberal tactical response to media coverage of their actions has only made the situation more convoluted for voters; denial, lies, and deflecting. With Liberal attacks on other party leaders in an attempt to deflect from the Liberals track record over the last 4 years, this has become one of the most divisive national election in modern times. However, it seems to have been working for the Liberals as the focus has been deflected from the societal impact of the Liberal decisions.
Should You Vote for the Party or the Leader?
But, what does it matter who is elected? Isn’t it the party that Canadians vote for? Well, it seems that it just might be given the strong popularity of Justin Trudeau despite his many shortcomings. So, have Canadians bought into the Utopian vision and does it reflect reality under the Liberal government? Has your life over the last 4 years gotten easier or harder for you? Are you enjoying your life more and feel more secure, or are you struggling more, more stressed out?
Even if voters agree with the Liberal vision for an Utopian society, believe that the Liberals can make it happen without a detailed plan, and we fully understand the costs and risks associated with this pursuit, are we so unhappy with the Canada’s situation now that we would need to do this?
Canada’s Future, the future of our children, and your quality of life depends on who you will vote for. Vote wisely!
