Anything that the left disagrees with is "fake news". Trudeau spoke kindly about Fidel Castro as did his father. The health care and carbon taxes rammed through are not fake news.

You can defend, deflect and deny all you like. People who can think for themselves will see the reality.

If Harper had given this guy $55 million and then gone on holiday at his private island where a 1 million donation made it okay to build a bigger area for his huge boat there would be riots. JT is a fundraising crook who is getting a free pass.

Trudeau's no different than any of the other politicians in-fact, he's actually worse. His leadership style is quite dictatorial much like his and his father's hero Castro. Some examples of this were the health financing budget and carbon taxes which we just rammed through without a concern. Being a millionaire himself, he can't connect with the low and middle economic classes (just like premier Wynne in Ontario can't either) when it comes to taxes/fees). There will be a lot of families hurting (just like there are in Ontario now) by the time he gets tossed - that's why legalizing marijuana is a priority for his government, so that people won't really know how bad off they are economically thanks to poor Liberal policies.
We are in the presence of a millionaire! From what I have read though, that makes you the poorest person on this forum.

I agree that the JT administration does have some priority issues to deal with. Legalizing marijuana should be way down on the list, after the economy and healthcare.

The Aga Khan Development Network has received over $300M from Canada since 2004 and Harper made the Aga Khan an honorary citizen in 2010 - were there riots?

Huh? Harper gave him more than that and made the guy a Canadian citizen

Wow...You're even more clueless than OP

What tax breaks? Lol, they're Muslims of the more "moderate" variety that everybody is wishing we had more of, and now they're a "cult"? I guess there's no spectrum - of you're Muslim, you're either radical or brainwashed.
That goes for any religion really..

Ah no. Fake news is FAKE - innuendo - and essentially propaganda.

Even if it does jive with your narrow minded and angry view of the world. And you think you think for yourself? You're a walking Fox and Breitbart and Daily Fail advertisement - predictable doesn't even cover the predictability....

Well Trudeau has plenty of time to vacation with a muslim philanthropist since he's not concentrating on the economy. I'm just waiting for the next announcement of him handing out X billions to X country. We really need a government that's fiscally responsible and actually sticks to their promise of economic growth.

Still so bitter about Trump being elected aren't you? I am not angry at all or narrow minded. You seem very angry though.

I am a realist. ( the one -ist word the left don't use). Because my opinions differ from yours you have to label me something. I really don't care what you think.

Realist - lol That's one way to see yourself, Trump describes himself similarly so you are in good company. As to his win, I do find it very comical that a thin skinned, shady, misogynistic and intellectually lacking rat is the Leader of the US and admired by those that equate his crassness with some form of honesty. But at least we have Trudeau so we're good peano :)

As to my statement, not angry at all, just correcting your lies above. Fake news is fake because it's fake, aka a lie, a slant, fake innuendo and propaganda. I thought it was pretty simple. Enjoy your mindset.

for real i've heard the term realist too many times that it makes it sound your in more touch with reality than anyone else. why not just admit that everyone has a bias than to call yourself either an optimist, pessimist, or realist. it's more productive and honest to have conversation than blame one another for their lack of "realistic" attitude. it's quite obvious everyone has their self-interest and sometimes those interests aren't always rooted in reality
