The headlines say it all to Canadians

Editor: Here is a sample of recent headlines from a variety of media sources.

“Canada to send 6 CF-18s for NATO operation in Eastern Europe — About 20 Armed Forces personnel, to be based in Mons, will also help with security” - CBC News.

“Waitresses in Saskatchewan lose jobs to foreign workers — Long-term employees fired and heartbroken” - CBC News.

“Vancouver is the most ‘Asian’ city outside Asia — What are the ramifications?” - Vancouver Sun.

“Peter MacKay wishes Canada’s Afghan troops had been better prepared — 158 Canadian soldiers died during the war in Afghanistan” - CBC News.

“McDonald’s accused of favouring foreign workers — Ottawa cracks down over Canadian worker complaints of fewer jobs, less hours” - CBC News.

“10 myths about taxes that mislead Canadians — Misinformation, misunderstandings abound when it comes to our tax system” - CBC News.

The headlines say it all. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is an inept destructor and by default we’ll get another one in Justin Trudeau.
