Trudeau Digs At Conservative Leader For Still 'Consulting' Harper - 2019-06-11
OTTAWA — In a rallying call to Liberal donors Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau painted the next election as a choice between moving forward with the Grits' progressive agenda or sliding backwards with Conservative cuts and Stephen Harper-era politics.
In a seven-minute speech to his supporters, many of whom have contributed at least $1,500 a year to the party, Trudeau listed as his government's accomplishments: negotiating a new NAFTA, lifting 300,000 children out of poverty, taking steps to fight climate change, and banning single use plastics as early as 2021.
Canada has the lowest unemployment rate in 40 years, Trudeau told the crowd of a few hundred people. More than a million jobs have been created since the Liberals took office, he boasted. "Our plan is working, so let's keep going, and let's dream even bigger."
