I am not going to claim that Trudeau "did nothing".  In the past I have usually supported the conservatives, but I'm not gong to claim that Trudeau is the love child of Stalin and a Star Trek Tribble. (And I have to admit, there are some things he has done that I think were good.... his handling of drug laws for one). On covid it was pretty much a mixed bag... did some things well, other things were questionable.

On the other hand, there were some things that I think were significant disappointments.... Liberal handling of the CF18 replacements and their inability to deal with the deficit (not so much during covid, when deficit spending was expected, but pre-covid) were things i particularly disliked.

As for your list... it certainly does look impressive. But, many of those aren't necessarily the type of "big impressive project", but more of the general type of day-to-day programs any government gets involved in.

This is exactly it.  I think any government regardless how lacklustre, perhapse even the Jason Kenney government, could produce a similarly lengthy list of bullet-points that might look impressive but don't actually have any significance to the typical Canadian On The Street.

Like, you're a young Canadian, you've just finished college with a higher-than-ever student debt, and the cost of owning or renting a home has risen significantly since even when you started college just a few years ago. Is the "Canada Service Corps" going to do much to reassure you?  Like, who gives a ****.

Is this country better or worse than it was 6 years ago? Does anything on that list of bullet points impact my life at all, one way or the other? Aside from ganja enthusiasts, I am having a hard time imagining who in this country would say things have improved.
