It’s pocketbook economics. Poilievre has found that if you distort the scenario just enough, it serves various purposes. If you imply that the Bank of Canada is at the beck and call of the prime minister, you can make wild accusations against the bank, its management and the prime minister. It makes a neat package. He thinks that the money distributed to Canadians during the pandemic was wasted. He accuses the prime minister of the waste. After all, how many citizens across Canada have a degree in economics?
It is like the old question posed to many Canadians returning from a Las Vegas vacation. How many will admit they lost money. They lie you know. At least they don’t have to lie about their last trip to the Loblaws. Did you enjoy that last fill-up of your favourite flavour of gasoline? And the news from the brutal war for the Eurasian Steppe is no better than it was yesterday.
And leader of the conservatives, Pierre Poilievre, can sit back and congratulate himself on a successful trip. He went after the job and he tell himself it is now his, a job, well done. Sewing seeds of discontent isn’t exactly the Road to Avonlea. It is just Poilievre’s route to chaos and discontent and the prime minister’s office.
Poilievre is a planner, a schemer, a snake, hiding in the garb of an accountant. He promoted Bitcoin until it lost so much it could embarrass him. He promises his followers no more than hard times. He brings no solace to the destitute. He will screw the environment. “Who cares,” he asks.
Canada’s Medicare is on the ropes and Poilievre could care less. Ask him the answer to the question many of our younger people are asking about how they can afford a single family dwelling in Toronto or Vancouver?
If Poilievre ever got into the prime minister’s office, he could show you just how far to the right he really is. He is a libertarian, without a conscience. He is a user.
