Freeland unveils Trudeau’s $100-billion election bribe

Apr 19 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is out to bribe voters with $100 billion of our own money in the next election by throwing cash at every voting bloc the Liberals believe they will need to recapture a majority government.

Data shows Ontario isn’t hoarding COVID-19 vaccines

Apr 18 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — For the last week, the Ford government has been accused of hoarding more than a million COVID-19 vaccines in freezers while complaining about a shortage.

Memo to Patty Hajdu — Canada’s problem is too few vaccines

Apr 11 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Federal Health Minister Patty Hajdu says she’s keeping a close eye on the number of COVID-19 vaccine doses the Trudeau government is delivering to the provinces compared to how quickly the provinces are administering them to patients.

Canada rolls the dice by delaying second vaccine shot

Mar 7 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — So much for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premiers following the science and the best medical advice as they claim they’ve been doing since the start of the pandemic.

Helpless: Caledonia’s agony is a national disgrace

Feb 28 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — What has happened to Caledonia over the last 15 years to the day since, on Feb. 28, 2006, its citizens became the innocent and unwitting victims of an Indigenous land claim protest that later turned violent, should be a national disgrace. It isn’t, because few people know about it.

Trudeau’s carbon taxes — big costs and broken promises

Feb 26 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon pricing regime has become an expensive, confusing, multi-headed Hydra in which claims made by his government are not accurate and promises have been broken. Among these inaccuracies and broken promises are the government’s claim the carbon tax is revenue neutral in the four provinces where it applies, that 80% of […]

Trudeau said he admired China’s dictatorship — believe him!

Feb 17 2021 — Lorrie Goldstein — There should be no surprise Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he needs more evidence before concluding China’s horrific treatment of its minority Uyghur Muslim population is a genocide, despite having agreed two years ago that Canada’s treatment of its Indigenous population was a genocide.
