Here's a letter I sent to the Brantford Expositor in response to this puff piece on Justin Trudeau:
Liberal MP Justin Trudeau talks about the need for “compassion” in politics “Trudeau brings message of 'respect, compassion” November 6.
Sounds good, but your readers should beware.
When left-leaning politicians like Trudeau talk about “compassion” it’s usually code for “we need bigger government and higher taxes.”
Trudeau, like his late father, believes the way to solve our country’s ills is to throw endless amounts of tax dollars at them.
It’s a policy approach, unfortunately, which ends up making us all poorer.
That’s not to say compassion has no place in politics.
I just wish politicians displayed some for over-burdened taxpayers.
