Albertans are clearly distracted 100% of the time by Justin Trudeau's natural good looks his ability to speak both canada's official languages so perfectly.....

Yes..peoplekind is evidence of that. The fact it takes him 5 minutes to complete a sentence is more proof I guess. 

I'm glad you find him attractive though.

Yes, Canada is really fortunate to have such strong leadership with JT as our PM. 

 

I wonder if he we win 4 elections in a row like his dad did ( Pierre was top CDN PM of all time ) .

Maybe he can hand one off to Freeland? to show how much of a feminist he truly is, for the sake of all people kind.

 

I can almost feel the people reading this a cringing.

I'd like to see her take over, she's a smart capable person. Trudeau has his heart in the right place, but I don't think anyone really ever saw him as anything other than a populist choice to get rid of Harper, and no one thinks he's generating policy. Freehand on the other hand took on Lightheizer and came away with a good deal for Canada.

PET did not win 4 in a row.

You call JT such a strong leader but reality tells a different story. Also your biggest issue was TMX which Trudeau approved so basically you find him so attractive that he can go against your major issues and you still vote for him.lol

She got what the Americans were willing to give. GM shutters another plant and Ontario craps their pants. You have to know that 2400 lost jobs in Ontario is far worse than 140,000 lost in AB. But I digress. While I cannot agree with government taking a bigger share of GDP each year I think I have to give some cred to the Liebels for funding some of these innovation centers. I say think because I don't know the details. I was reading about Equisheres Inc and Zinc 8 Energy Solutions who have both received seed money from the feds. Battery storage and 3 D metal printer tech. 

 

How does Canada chart an independent industrial strategy away from the USA? It is a national security issue and the failure to date makes me label Canada as a banana monarchy. It is why I consider the export of AB energy a national security issue. The income from that energy could fund a more independent approach. IMHO Harper was headed in that direction and was snuffed. Resources are finite and that wealth has to be used to secure the country's future if Canada wants to stay independent.

Sweet or not it wasn't 4 straight wins plus one was a minority. In 1980 he won 2 seats west of Ontario and no seats west of Manitoba. Hardly as popular as kos makes him out to be but he uses a specific article to justify the claim. I can find you countless articles saying how terrible he was, but it's easier to blame Mulroney amirite?

I don't think you're giving the Canadian trade team much credit B, they did a hell of a good job campaigning directly with governors, senators and congress directly impacted by trade with Canada. Freeland led that charge and dealt with Lightheizer 1 on 1 many times. Credit where its due man.

 

We can never be independent of the US, that ship sailed many years ago. Best we can do is diversity our resources to smaller emerging economies and other middle powers in the EU, which should be possible.

Just noticed I put was instead of wasn't. I enjoy educating @kingofsurrey but unfortunately I'm not sure he listens. It's multiple times now I have told him it's you're not your. Oh well no one likes a quitter so I will keep trying. B)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_prime_ministers_of_Canada

 

Pierre rated #4 All time top Canadian Prime ministers...

JT is rated #10 all time top Canadand PM's

 

Such an amazing family.  Do you consider PIerrre the father of modern day Canada ? 

 

PS - i thought about moving back home to Alberta... but sadly i don't like chewing tobacco so i would probably not fit in.

I think it was an envelope, but I see your point. 

 

But.. since you brought it up, I can't help but point out he had the balls to transform the Canadian economy and was the last PM we had with actual international influence.

Can't anyone edit a wikipedia page?

You sure are quiet about TMX.. you said it was your biggest issue and still voted JT. You really do like his appearance, hey?

Absolutely not the father of modern day Canada. 

I guess if I gave that title to anyone it would be Lester Pearson but I'm positive he would be furious with all this debt.
