David Dodge says Trudeau is wrong.

https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/he-s-wrong-david-dodge-blasts-trudeau-on-monetary-policy-quip-1.1642178

In an exchange with a reporter Wednesday, when asked about whether a re-elected Liberal government would consider allowing the Bank of Canada to have a slightly higher tolerance for inflation when its mandate comes up for renewal, Trudeau dismissed the issue as not being a priority.

“When I think about the biggest, most important economic policy this government, if re-elected, would move forward, you'll forgive me if I don't think about monetary policy. You’ll understand that I think about families,” he said.


BAHAHAHAA.

BAHAHAHAA.

yours is amateur hour Gorgeous. Who should be surprised the CPC, once again, selectively pulls a comment... extracting it without accompany context! Same ole, same ole CPC bullshyte! Here's the complete Q/A:

waldo factoids:
=> monetary policy is the purview of the Bank of Canada - the independent BoC! The BoC's target inflation mandate comes from the federal government... currently set @2% - that target helps to guide the framework that the BoC uses/follows to set its monetary policy. On the other hand, fiscal policy is the domain of the federal government. Do ya see the distinction, hey Gorgeous? And interestingly since he was mentioned in the prior post, David Dodge is on record as favouring the status-quo 2% inflation target for the BoC.

and by-the-by, CPC leader O'Toole was asked the exact same question later in the day... and he skirted answering it; opting instead to babble on about the most wondrous GST holiday month the CPC is promising as a part of its vote-buying package! LOL!

I'd like to talk about O'Toole's t-shirt.

He looks like the husband half of a swinger couple, cruising a bar in Oakville to find young commodities for their maternal bedroom.

oh my, MH! In earlier posts O'Toole's penchant for running was on multiple-image display... and twitter wags had a go at how several of the images had been so obviously photoshopped to give O'Toole such unrealistic bulging quads! And now this latest "makeover" is being similarly panned for the way O'Toole's man-boobs have been 'tightened-up'... ya, tightened!

waldo factoid: its called quantitative easing (QE) in aid of influencing longer-term interest rates that matter to Canadians - simply a tool within the Bank of Canada's monetary policy tool chest that involves buying large amounts of bonds that the Government of Canada has issued and sold to financial institutions, such as commercial banks.
=> member wilber, you're perpetuating a major misconception about QE: the BoC is not printing bank notes to buy government bonds; rather, to pay for the bonds the BoC issues a liability settlement balance to match the bonds value... expanding upon the bank's balance sheet but NOT the amount of circulating money.

=> PM Trudeau Liberal government issues a policy statement advising that federal public servants will have to be vaccinated, along with those working for crown corporations and other federally regulated businesses.

meanwhile, CPC/O'Toole answering a question about his position on mandatory vaccinations says:

Quote from: CPC leader Erin O'Toole
Conservatives support Canadians' right to determine their own health choices.

so CPC/O'Toole put the rights of the unvaccinated ahead of public safety; notwithstanding, many of those choosing to remain unvaccinated are driven by conspiracy theories and a lack of respect of... concern for... the welfare of others.

The Anti-Vax sympathy will sink O'Toole. Tough spot to be in.

oh my! LOL! The CPC/O'Toole is getting his azz kicked over the mandatory vaccination issue... and now, O'Toole has issued the following statement:

Quote from: CPC leader Erin O'Toole
Canadians do not want to see the politicization of the pandemic. Vaccines are not a political issue.

ya ya, that should take care of it - well done CPC/O'Toole! Oh my!

Waldo out here just blanketing this thread in Liberal propaganda. I was still going to vote for Jenica Atwin even though she crossed the floor, but if I have to read all of this nonsense from Waldo for the next 6 weeks, I'll probably just stay home.

c'mon cyber! That's right, in certain posts the waldo speaks directly to Liberal Party election campaign policy... you know, in an election campaign thread. Wow - imagine that - policy references to act as fodder for, to act to help spur on, policy discussion! You know, on a discussion forum. But I also draw reference to Opposition Party policy... and of course, as appropriate, criticize it in relation to existing federal government policy/legislation or Liberal Party campaign related policy statements.

but really, NDPcyber, please reconsider your yelp to "probably" stay home... just to "own the Libs"! LOL!

hey member cyber, concerning universal pharmacare, here's one aimed at your favoured NDP party:

for weeks prior to the campaign and now again in the campaign yesterday, NDP Singh has been outright lying concerning the NDP sham&stunt "pharmacare bill" - repeatedly falsely stating the Liberal government voted against drug coverage for all Canadians. A representative summary from the NDP Party (issued just yesterday):


a few extracts from our related prior exchanges from another thread:

Quote from: Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada
The NDP are pulling a political stunt to try to demonstrate that it could do it with the wave of a magic wand. We work in the real world here. No Canadian should have to make a choice between buying medication and putting food on the table. We will therefore continue to work towards national universal pharmacare. We will do so in respect of the Constitution and in partnership with the provinces and not impose a political decision from Ottawa. We believe in partnership as the path forward.

Unlike the NDP, we will not be imposing, in provincial jurisdiction, rules that are not worked out with the provinces. We respect the constitution on this side of the House and we’ll work hand in glove with the premiers to ensure… pharmacare universally across this country

on member cyber! How odd you would choose to simply dismiss those building blocks... those foundational elements of national pharmacare. Unlike the NDP reliance on "magic beans and unconstitutional stunts", the Trudeau Liberal government chooses to follow guiding recommendations of the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare; again, (some of its) recommendations that shaped Budget 2019 that announced the Trudeau Liberal government’s intention to move forward on 3 foundational elements of national pharmacare; specifically:

Quote
To make prescription drugs more affordable and more accessible to more Canadians, the Government intends to work with its partners on the creation of:

The Canadian Drug Agency, a new national drug agency that would build on existing provincial and territorial successes, and take a coordinated approach to assessing effectiveness and negotiating prescription drug prices on behalf of Canadians. Negotiating better prices could help lower the cost of prescription drugs for Canadians by up to $3 billion per year in the long term.

A national formulary—a comprehensive, evidence-based list of prescribed drugs, to be developed as part of the Canadian Drug Agency. This would provide the basis for a consistent approach to formulary listing and patient access across the country.

A national strategy for high-cost drugs for rare diseases to help Canadians get better access to the effective treatments they need. This is an important first step in expanding drug coverage through federal support.

notwithstanding that sham NDP "pharmacare bill" was nothing more than an unconstitutional political stunt intending to unilaterally impose requirements on provinces, as a private member's bill, it can't provision to, can't position to, can't intend to, can't SPEND MONEY!

as I stated earlier, the federal government, positioning as a partner, continues to work with the provinces toward reaching consultative agreements on pharmacare. In that vein, PEI is the first province to sign a foundational agreement towards pharmacare: Ottawa inks $35M deal with P.E.I. to help pay prescription drug costs

The Waldo spamming has definitely hit new heights…

but really member squiggy, you've shown you have no game - you mostly just TROLL! So you create an alternate thread cause you haven't the wherewithal to actually engage, debate, argue. Instead of being your typical whining pissant-self, why not take a stab at discussing policy. In 2019 you clearly were a proponent for the failed Green Party... you still there buddy - yes? Oh wait, is it because the Green Party has imploded that you're so down, frustrated and lashing out at poor lil' waldo? Is that it? LOL!

Derek Sloan moves west to run as an independent in Alberta: initially elected as the Hastings—Lennox and Addington (ON) CPC MP in 2019; ejected from the Conservative caucus this past January and continued to serve his riding as an independent.

Sloan intends to run in the Banff-Airdrie riding - against CPC incumbent Blake Richards, the current CPC party whip. At a packed venue in Cochrane, 500 people came out to hear Sloan officially announce his next political play - while also announcing that he has filed the necessary paperwork with Elections Canada to form a new national political party - the True North party!

during the last election, by CPC design, Ontario Premier Doug Ford was persona non grata... viewed so unpopular as to do harm to the CPC fortunes! On the other hand, then popular Alberta Premier Jason Kenney even came to Ontario to campaign for the CPC/Scheer.

but now, Kenney has disappeared from public view - some wags suggest he's simply too embarrassed over the Covid-19 impacts of removing restrictions too soon and the resulting tarnish on his much hyped, 'best summer ever'. Others also see a similar theme to DOFO's disappearing act - that the CPC views Kenney as a negative impact on its campaign and doesn't want Kenney campaigning for leader O'Toole!

today, given Kenney's unpopularity across Canada and in particular Alberta, CPC/O'Toole was asked about the possibility of Premier Kenney campaigning for him... O'Toole gave the standard pat answer that he was proud of his relationship with all their provincial Conservative counterparts.

NDP Singh continues to conflate jurisdictions, provincial vs. federal... since this continually gets pointed out to him, one can factually state NDP/Singh does it purposely... gaslighter-to-the-max!

to gaslight => refers to the act of {NDP/Singh} undermining another person’s reality by denying facts, the environment around them, or their feelings


the latest, has NDP/Singh ignoring the fact that landlord-tenant... rent control legislation is provincial domain. That it's landlords following municipal/provincial regulations in establishing rent levels. By the by, NDP/Singh, your parties related promissory statement says... "up to $5000"
