The kimmo poses a question:  is the country in better shape than it was in 2015?

JT and the Sunshine Gang swept to power on a platform proposing change. But beyond legalized marijuana, has anything really changed that much?

One of the big promises was fighting inequality. But inequality has only increased. Housing in particular is more out of reach than ever.

Democratic reform? Pharmacare? "Fighting for young Canadians"?  Transparency? Integrity? Reconciliation with First Nations people?  None of that has happened.  It's not much different than the Harper government.  The difference between this government and its predecessor is mostly superficial stuff-- identity politics and image, not substance.

Obviously the pandemic has been a big factor in the past 1.5 years and I think the Liberals have at least done a competent job of managing the medical side of that. And I think you have to acknowledge that the pandemic is the main factor in the current deficit and debt situation.  However the Liberals had over 4 years to show us what they were doing before the pandemic arrived, and aside from legalizing pot they didn't exactly inspire during that time.
