The Trudeau Government Said $1 BILLION In Corporate Welfare Created 56,000 Jobs. Turns Out, It Created Just 6,600

More of our taxpayer dollars given to the Liberal-connected corporate elites, while the government lies to our faces yet again.

The Trudeau government has been caught lying to Canadians once again.

Blacklocks Reporter has found that the number of “actual jobs created under a new billion-dollar Industry Canada corporate loan program are a fraction of federal claims.”

The government had claimed 56,000 jobs were created.

Turns out, it was just 6,600.

“Data from #cdnfoi show feds grossly inflated jobs claims under #StrategicInnovationFund giveaways. (link: https://www.blacklocks.ca/govt-inflated-jobs-estimate/) blacklocks.ca/govt-inflated-… #cdnpoli
@ISED_CA @dani_keenan @NavdeepSBains #FakeNews”

As noted by Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, that turns out to be a whopping $159,000 in taxpayer subsidies per job:

“Over $1 billion in corporate welfare since 2017 was supposed to “create” 56,000 jobs.

Turns out it only created 6,600 jobs. That’s a $159,000 taxpyaer subsidy per job.

Remember this the next time a politician tries to bamboozle you with “job creation” claims.”

Interestingly, the media hasn’t been asking government minister Navdeep Bains about his now obviously false claim.

And this latest lie comes from the same government that is trying to control social media under the pretext of fighting ‘disinformation,’ when it turns out they are the ones spreading the disinformation in the first place.

This is yet another disgraceful lie from the Trudeau Liberals, and shows why they can never be trusted with our tax dollars.

They can’t be trusted with our tax dollars? I would go so far as to say they can’t be trusted! Libs generate more fake good news with an 89% fake factor built in. Good thing baby mayochup won’t tolerate people lying to Canadians!

Do the citizens in Western Canada really need any more reasons to leave this con job of a federation???? People wake up and smell the rope burning the governments in Ottawa don’t care where they send our tax dollars, they only want the west to keep forking it out. It won’t matter which party is in power, they have to appease central and eastern Canada. The west means nothing to them, even if the west voted for one party it still would not be enough to win if the east voted for the opposite party.

I am guessing that when the 159 k per job is spent then the jobs vanish.

The words “disgraceful lie” are in fact an integral part of the Liberal mantra — they wouldn’t have it any other way — because they know no other way.

The 6,600 Jobs Were More Than Likely Pencil Pushing Jobs Created For Shuffling The Money Around

At 159 grand per temporary job, that ranks right up there with paying 4.5 billion dollars for a 65 year old pipeline, that was worth at best 2 billion dollars. It is quite revealing that whenever there is a massive overpayment, followed by an equally massive lie, you can be certain that it all started with Trudeau and his sycophantic lying ministers. Yet once again it has been plainly proved for all to see, that massive borrowing and spending , used on the deceitful pretext, this will certainly create long term jobs, is just another lie used to reward close… Read more »
