Why a pig of course!
Why Pierre Poilievre of course!
Pierre Poilievre is by far the most right-wing leader the Conservative Party of Canada has ever had.
Should he ever be elected, Canadians would experience the most reactionary and brutal policies ever enacted.
Pierre Poilievre has a lifetime history of promoting and supporting an extreme right-wing ideology.
He is vehemently opposed to unions. He believes that income from work should be determined only by market forces, not by collective bargaining. He knows that collective bargaining almost always results in higher incomes for workers than they would achieve by negotiating as individuals without a union to represent them.
Pierre Poilievre is actively opposed to vaccine mandates and has supported anti-vax protests. This in spite of the fact that scientists estimated COVID vaccines saved almost 20 million lives in their first year alone!
Pierre Poilievre acts opposed to doing anything serious about climate change. He doesn’t specify how he will promptly respond to the crisis, and is unwaveringly opposed to federal carbon taxes and clean fuel regulations. This despite an overwhelming body of scientific evidence that if we do not immediately and drastically reduce and then eliminate carbon emissions, life as we know it will come to an end on planet earth. Economists are unanimous in their conclusion that one of the best ways to reduce carbon emissions is to tax carbon.
Of note, 2023 is on track to be the hottest year ever in recorded history.
Pierre Poilievre seems to be basing his political program on what he adamantly opposes – including the CBC, the current governor of the Bank of Canada, and of course Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who he blames for all of Canada’s current woes, including worldwide inflation and the housing crisis. He even threatened to indefinitely block a government budget implementation bill that has provided funding for affordable dental care and a grocery rebate for low-income Canadians.
The list goes on and on!
Do not be fooled by Pierre Poilievre’s so-called makeover. This is just a gimmick. It is the quintessential example of image over substance.
Do not forget that even if you put lipstick on a pig, you still have a pig.
