Once again, the only thing The Agenda is interested in is climate change. Since Advanced Symbolics is polling about a variety of issues, where is the rest of their current research? Further, Paikin’s dismissal of Max Bernier as a climate change denier is flat out wrong!! He has denied the crisis and C02 as the sole cause. That is not climate change denial. It’s as if no one at The Agenda bothers to look deeper than the headlines. How about having Bernier on and ask him directly?
The issue of affordability is important, to be sure. But where is the discussion of it corollary, increased taxation? According to this program, Canadians want a fiscally responsible approach to climate change. Why? Because we know that our taxes going to potentially wasteful “solutions” is money that cannot be used for other programs.
What about a big issue of concern to informed Canadians, immigration? Those who look at the numbers are worried about the impact of 1 million immigrants over the next 3 years. Who are they? What are their skills? Where will they live? How long and what kind of assistance will they need? A million people is a serious number. And the generosity of the taxpayer has limits.
That the blackface scandal is potentially over speaks ill of the moral compass of those polled. Blackface is not the issue, hypocrisy and honesty are.
