News

“After one year in power, Trudeau is realizing that Sunny Ways might be an effective strategy for getting elected but it’s a lousy way to govern. He’s going to have to focus on the one or two things he must do this mandate, jettison the rest, and devote his political capital to pushing them through.”—Andrew Potter
