O’Leary slams Trudeau’s lack of business experience and misguided economic policies
Conservative leadership candidate Kevin O’Leary isn’t holding back in his assessment of Justin Trudeau.
Speaking to Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun, O’Leary slammed Trudeau as a disaster. Said O’Leary, “We have become very uncompetitive as a country. Trudeau took us in the wrong direction on carbon tax, on personal tax, corporation tax. On regulations he’s put moratoriums around all of your growth around natural resources.”
O’Leary pointed out the lack of relevant experience that would have prepared Trudeau for managing the federal government.
“Justin has never run a business, never had to worry about an income statement or balance sheet. He is out there and he is a total disaster as a manager. Unfortunately, when you have a disaster as a manager you have to make changes. That is what is going to happen in 2019.”
O’Leary makes an important point. Trudeau’s life experience has been spent at the top of the political elite. He doesn’t recognize the struggles that Canadian business owners or Canadian families have faced.
As a result, everything in the economy is an abstraction to him. He can’t relate to worrying about paying rent or a mortgage, or having to make tough financial choices. Everything was given to him, and he doesn’t care if it’s taken away from others.
That’s why Trudeau pushes his globalist economic agenda. It enriches people like him and his elite friends, while taking more money out of our pocket.
Trudeau won’t learn, and he won’t change. Only a new government can put Canadian taxpayers back in charge.
