Europe is planning to spend the equivalent of Canada spending $100B over the next 5 years for future investment. We risk being left behind in a quickly changing economy if we don't spend.
Europe isn't a country.  It's also completely irrelevant what other countries want to spend.  If Europe drove off a cliff would you follow them?

I'm not saying we shouldn't spend, it all depends on what and how much.  We are in a recession after all, we will need spending support.  I guess we'll see what he has in store.

It's also a fact that Trudeau's poll numbers shot through the roof when he was giving away hundreds of billions in free money to Canadians, i'm sure that's also part of the calculus.  Sources within the gov privy to the Morneau/JT spat said JT was very focused on polling.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
