the facts:

After producing a surplus in 2007-08 of $9.6 billion, the Harper government delivered a deficit of $5.8 billion in 2008-09 during the global recession.

In subsequent years, his Conservative governments generated shortfalls of $55.6 billion in 2009-10; $33.4 billion in 2010-11; $26.3 billion in 2011-12; $18.4 billion for 2012-13; and $5.2 billion for 2013-14.

To summarize, Harper-led governments ran a string of six straight deficits between 2008-09 and 2013-14.

Which I happily pointed out, due to the world economy falling to pieces. We came out of that whole deal relatively unscathed (other than people like me who had mutual funds in the US Stock market, which have long since recovered anyways).

I fail to see why you think he destroyed the economy, beyond liberal talking points. He did not destroy the economy; he ran deficits for a number of years after the world economy shit the bed. I wouldn't even begrudge King Trudeau for something like that, but his deficits are not warranted or explained by a massive recession, he just wants to spend the economy bigger when our biggest trading partner's economy is doing quite well.

Justin Trudeau is the most moral broad minded leader and his liberal views are much needed for the country Canada with the most diverse populations.
There is no room for conservative laws anymore when the average white dis fertile to procreation of creating family lives yet is zero insisting on capital gains of individuals yet defensive of conservative laws.
The Asian and all other races are multiplying in populations by factor of 5 X to 1 in regards to whites. Therefore I rest my case in defence of Justin Trudeau liberal approach for betterment of mixed Canadian society.

Damn was that a dog's breakfast. The few coherent thoughts sound like sarcasm, so I don't know what to say to that.

Another big virtue signalling, emotion-only (semi-coherent) argument, zero facts. Stop towing the liberal stereotype, you don't help Trudeau's supporters.

Harper also put in place the income splitting deal, which I benefited from to further allow my wife to stay at home and take care of my kid(s). Trudeau cancelled that, so moot.

what did Harper do well? he pretty much destroyed our economy. Unless you guys are going to blame the Liberal party before him for that, which you really can't considering how long Harper was in office for.
I didn't know I live in a "destroyed" economy given we had maybe 5 quarters of negative growth out of almost 40 quarters. Based on what data did you draw that conclusion?

Whats wrong with believing that?. Fact is no one knows who threw the grenade. It was a battle.

American soldiers that was on the ground didnt know who threw it when they were being question during that time. Why should you believe it?.

This was all on record. It was until later that they started to point the finger on khadr.

Khadr only admitted to it because he was being tortured.

Even Khadr himself doesnt remember if he did or not. The guy was 15, almost died and got tortured.

No one really knows what happened.

Who cares about one stupid grenade. This young adult constructed IEDs for the a terrorist group. Are we to assume all of his IEDs were unsuccessful? This alone makes him not only a terrorist, but a traitor. Send him back to gitmo

Seems people here prefer dictatorships so they can choose not to obey Supreme Court decisions. Maybe they want it to be like back in origin country eh?
We should do away with democracy as its obvious so many people here are unhappy over a court decision.

But these same people will be running to courts for "justice" when they're riling against a person/company/employer etc

Exactly what Supreme Court decision was not obeyed? Which one? Please list them.
Is it solipsistic here? Or is it just me?
