This usually results in silence but on the few occasions Liberals do respond what I hear is we must unlike Chretien who campaigned from the left and governed from the right do the opposite. Campaign from the right and govern from the left.
To me there is no difference, both are cynical and deceptive and as a voter how can I know this to be true. All I can base my decisions on are the policies a party runs on and what I have heard from Trudeau and his party to date other that the marijuana promise causes me great concern.
Be it his support for the Keystone pipeline, the Canada/China FIPA, Harper's CETA corporate rights deal and the party's support for Harper's corporate rights deal with the murderous military coup lead Honduran regime I see nothing there I can support.
When it comes to the Honduras deal in particular, my hon. colleagues in the NDP have raised the important point that this is a trade deal with a country that has a very troubled record and very troubled reality on many political labour and environmental issues. We in the Liberal Party believe that it is important for us to do this deal. Not every country in the world is perfect, and we have to trade in the global economy. We believe that having a strong trading relationship can and must be a way to be a positive force in those economies
These are policies that once having wooed right wing voters and won government will be nearly impossible to walk back from and if they do will only add to voter apathy as many will feel once again betrayed.
BTW as I've pointed out recently the NDP seems to be following the same tact as I'm told they must appear more pragmatic in order to win so they can implement their real agenda.
It seems the rot that emanates from the PM has now infected the entire political spectrum
