The pattern of saying one thing and doing another continues.
The Trudeau government has broken their promise to get rid of the GST for the construction of new rental units.
During the 2015 campaign, the Trudeau Liberals made the pledge as a way to support the construction of more affordable housing in Canada.
Now, as noted by the CP, that pledge is “listed on a new tracking website as “not being pursued.” The federal website, launched Tuesday, lists the government’s progress on the items in the mandate letters provided to cabinet ministers.”
The government says “research” has shown there are better ways to increase the amount of affordable housing in Canada, yet they didn’t even mention what that “research” was.
This is just one of many broken promises by the Trudeau government, the most notable being their pledge to run three small deficits, which has turned into endless deficits of over $20 billion per year.
Additionally, the promise to bring a new era of “openness and transparency” has been twisted into an arrogant, elitist, and out-of-touch government facing the unprecedented situation of having both the Prime Minister and Finance Minister under ethics investigations.
With all these broken promises, it’s no wonder that trust in the government continues to collapse.
