Economic decline and crisis often causes political divisions to surge. With Canada already massively divided, the results could be disastrous.
It’s well known that economic crises and recessions cause political divisions to worsen, in large part due to a well-founded view that the corrupt elitist governing class continues to enrich themselves while the rest of us suffer.
That has serious implications for Canada.
Our nation is already at risk of collapsing, with well-justified Western alienation surging, the Bloc winning nearly half the seats in Quebec, and political divisions between the parties at record levels.
And this all happening without Canada being in the middle of a recession.
If a recession hits (and it looks increasingly likely) then all bets are off.
As I wrote about earlier, the risks of a recession appear to be rising, with a new MNP survey showing Canadians facing a worsening financial situation and increasingly struggling with debt:
“More evidence of Canada’s deeply broken economy has emerged in a survey by MNP.
The survey shows a whopping 47% of Canadians saying they can’t cover their basic expenses without adding even more to their debt burden.
Additionally, 48% say that they have less than $200 left at the end of the month after paying their living costs and debt expenses.
In June, that number was at 44%.
Disturbingly, the amount of money Canadians have on average at the end of the month has gone down dramatically.
In June of 2017, Canadians had on average $892 left over at the end of the month.
Now, that number has fallen to $557.”
This puts Canada at further risk of economic crisis, and things are getting pretty bad out there.
And just think about this: Will Canadians still put up with carbon taxes and restrictions on our energy industry when our economy faces collapse?
Will Trudeau’s virtue-signalling and the disloyalty of the elites still be allowed when Canadians are fearing for our futures?
I don’t think so.
Increasingly, it appears that our nation will face a clear choice:
Free all our regions to prosper and reduce taxes for Canadians, or watch as our country collapses, descends into chaos, and breaks apart.
