This “bold change” seems to be an NDP-style assault on the Canadian economy that we may soon find includes things like a basic income, taxpayer-funded daycare, a further phasing out of the oils sands, even more aggressive green energy schemes and, of course, higher taxes.

It’s hard to imagine Trudeau would switch finance ministers just before this planned prorogation reset unless he knew for sure he was getting someone who would work more to implement his far-left agenda, rather than temper it.

The rise of Chrystia Freeland as a political force in her own right is likely being oversold. Perhaps she’s just the most talented and useful of the Trudeau lackeys.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
