When Will Canadians Get to Decide About Their Own Government?

August 6, 2021 Comments Off on When Will Canadians Get to Decide About Their Own Government? By admin

The Trudeau government’s decision to cancel federal holidays is being seen by some as an effort to make a point to Canadians, as the government considers whether to increase taxes or introduce a new package of tax hikes to help pay for its plan to increase social transfers.

“They’re saying we’re going to change the rules, we’re not going to be here forever,” Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said Friday.

“So that’s what they’re trying to do.

I don’t think they have any other option.”

In fact, it is expected the new package will be even more progressive than the old one, which was designed to help alleviate the fiscal pressures that have seen the economy collapse in recent years.

But some are questioning the government’s motivations, arguing it is using the holidays to make political hay.

“This is the government that, as we know, is trying to distract from the fact that the Conservatives have been running a massive, massive tax cut,” said Liberal Finance Minister Bill Morneau, referring to the government in his mandate letter to the country.

“We have seen that it’s going to result in massive revenue losses for the Canadian economy and for the people of Canada.”

The Conservatives have not made any such promise.

But a senior Liberal government source said the decision to move Canada’s national holidays into 2019 and 2020 is designed to make it easier for Canadians to have a say in how the government runs the country and to boost the country’s financial position in the face of a rapidly aging population.

The changes to federal holidays are expected to be unveiled by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has promised to do so when he assumes office in 2019.

Under the old system, all Canadian holidays were to begin on Dec. 31, with the new system set to begin with the end of the month on Jan. 1.

The Liberals had promised to phase out federal holidays during the current mandate, but were not expected to take advantage of the end-of-year holiday until after they assumed power.

Canada’s government and other public institutions, however, are set to lose more than $7 billion in tax revenues from 2019 to 2021 as a result of the changes.

Many experts expect that will be offset by increased spending by the federal government, as it has promised spending cuts of up to $30 billion to offset the cost of the new holiday package.

Morneau said Friday that the government would continue to work with all levels of government to get a more balanced and sustainable approach to spending.

He also said the government will not cut taxes or raise any new taxes.

On Friday, Trudeau defended the decision, saying the Liberals had to make the change in order to “get out of the fiscal mess we’re in.”

“Our objective is not to have Canadians feel that we’re being unreasonable,” he said.

“We’ve got to be able to deliver for them, but we have to have our priorities straight.

I think that’s the point of this.

This is a balancing act.”

Trudeau also reiterated his commitment to a new national holiday for the first time in nearly three decades.

It is expected to go into effect on Jan 5, 2019.

‘I don’t want to be a Christmas Tree’: Travelers share their Christmas memories

A couple of weeks ago, a family from New Zealand visited the UK.

The parents wanted to see what it was like for their family to live in the UK for Christmas.

They visited the National Railway Museum in London and found it a great place to visit.

“We took our kids for a tour and we were so happy with how it all looked and we just wanted to know if we could go back to New Zealand to see it again,” said a father and his three young daughters.

“And so we did.”

The couple decided to take a trip to the UK, to see if they could find the same feeling.

The trip took them through London, London, Bristol and Bristol, all on foot.

“It was amazing,” said the father.

“I mean, we just went and explored.”

The family didn’t stop there.

They also visited Liverpool, visited the Museum of Contemporary Art and went to the National Maritime Museum.

“You could walk around and just see everything,” said one of the girls.

“Every time we went, we were just really, really, excited about it.”

While the trip to New York was a little different, the experience was the same.

“There was a huge difference in the feel of being there, the way we looked and everything, because we didn’t feel like we were in New Zealand,” said another of the family.

“The people in New York were so different to us, so different, so so different.”

The trip to England was the last time the family spent time in New England.

“My family is really excited to come back to England,” said his daughter.

“They’re looking forward to it, and it’s a lot more fun.”
