Once again the elites benefit at our expense.
It’s a great time to be involved in the Trudeau foundation.
In 2013, the Trudeau foundation recorded no foreign donations.
In 2014, they had $53,000 in foreign donations.
In 2015, they had $428,000 in foreign donations.
And in 2016, they had $535,000 in foreign donations.
But it’s a bad time to be a Canadian business looking for investment.
In 2015, $22.6 billion in investment entered Canada from the US. That fell to $14.4 billion in 2016, and $10.8 billion in 2017.
Meanwhile, $36.5 billion in investment left Canada for the US in 2015. That increased to $51.8 billion in 2016, and $60.5 billion in 2017.
In addition to the $60.5 billion in investment that left Canada for the US in 2017, another $40 billion left Canada for other countries.
The investment collapse is due in large part to the excessive regulations being imposed by the Trudeau government, as well as the devastating impact of the carbon tax.
It’s an interesting coincidence that Trudeau’s time in power has been so good for the Trudeau foundation, and so bad for Canada, a point effectively made by Manny Montenegrino on Twitter:
Investments in Canada:
1. Business investments leaving at RECORD rates
2. Investments in Trudeau Foundation increasing in RECORD rate
Seems contradictory— no wait — hows that possible—-never mind. pic.twitter.com/LL7kauxpR9

Take a look at the charts below:
It’s important for Canadians to see this information, because it shows how Trudeau’s time in office is benefiting the elites, while hurting the rest of us.
Clearly, Trudeau isn’t governing for the Canadian people.
