Justin Trudeau has a habit of accusing Canadians of “phobias” and “bigotry” whenever we happen to disagree with him.
So, considering the reaction to Trudeau’s latest budget, we can expect he’ll start accusing us of “Trudeauphobia” soon enough.
The number are bad for the government: A new Forum Research poll shows Trudeau’s budget is widely opposed by Canadians.
Only 14% approve, 40% disapprove, 36% have no opinion, and 10% say they do not know.
Shockingly, only 31% of Liberals approved of the budget.
Canadians think the Trudeau budget is bad for the economy
The poll shows Canadians are not feeling good about the potential economic impact of the budget. 37% say it will be bad for the economy, while only 15% say it will be positive.
And despite the endless “middle class” talking points spouted by Trudeau and his cronies, 41% of Canadians say the budget will be bad for middle class people, versus only 10% who say it will be positive.
Strong opposition to key parts of the budget
While Canadians approve of some measures in the budget – particularly investments in childcare and increased parental leave – the decision to eliminate the transit pass tax credit was highly unpopular, with only 16% in favour.
And as shown above, support for some individual budget measures has not translated into support for the budget itself.
That divide between some support for parts of the budget and overall opposition to the budget suggests an underlying failure of Trudeau’s approach.
Canada’s economy is stagnating, debt is piling up, a massive carbon tax is on the way, and the huge spike in government spending hasn’t led to increased growth. As a result, Canadians are realizing that all of Trudeau’s campaign rhetoric and statements while in office have been based upon lies, and our country is being weakened from the inside.
Combined with forcing the widely-hated Motion M-103 on Canadians, Trudeau’s globalist agenda is getting tougher to hide. Slogans about the middle class don’t cut it anymore. We aren’t seeing results, and we have no reason to believe we will so long as Trudeau is in power.
As more Canadians turn against him, don’t expect Trudeau to take any responsibility for his failures. Much more likely that he accuses us all of “Trudeauphobia” instead.
