Twa – a brand new Canada – green brother, healthier, more compassionate, temperamental.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced last month that he was suspending parliament because his government and his family were involved.
Promising to present the country with an ambitious coronavirus recovery plan and wreaking economic havoc, he said, “This is our moment to change for the better in the future.”
On Wednesday, he will finally unveil his much-anticipated legislative plan – and as much as it seeks to re-establish the nation, it is also an opportunity for Mr. Trudeau to re-establish his political destiny.
Mr Trudeau is battling high unemployment, a severe budget shortfall and the uncertain future of many Canadian businesses. Coronavirus infection rates have begun to rise again – And at the same time the fear that the second wave of the epidemic has begun.
Some states have revived sanctions, raising concerns about further economic woes. High – and expensive – long-term goals can be less interesting.
Kathy Brock, a professor of policy studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, said the prime minister should offer more than necessary.
“Mr. Trudeau should have a plan or proposal that tells Canadians: ‘We understand where we are going, we are not reacting right now.’ He said.
The contract was eventually abandoned and The charity recently announced that it was closing Operation Canada.
But the episode last year hurt Mr. Trudeau’s image during his re-election campaign, including the SNC-Lovlin controversy. Efforts by his office to reduce criminal charges against a large engineering company, And revelations about the wear of the Prime Minister Blackface and sawdust brown face in the past.
Lori Turnbull, director of the School of Public Administration at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, said: “For those who are skeptical or not particularly happy about Justin Trudeau, it is all about limiting their thinking. . Polls show Mr. Trudeau’s Liberal Party suffered briefly From the incident.
At the same time, he said, Mr. Trudeau’s supporters “say there’s really nothing to see,” making the WE case a political wash.
When Mr. Trudeau announced that he would close Parliament – which was also noted by his political opponents, the WE Charity Committee closed the hearing – he expressed hope for what he could offer.
“As much as this epidemic is a sudden challenge, it is also a unique opportunity.” Mr Trudeau said in August. “This is our opportunity to build a more prosperous Canada. A Canada that is healthier and safer, greener and more competitive. A Canada that is more welcoming and more neutral. ”
Opposition parties, businesses, trade unions and think tanks across the country have raised the issue of what should be included in Mr. Trudeau’s plan, which will be brought to the fore in the so-called Gaddafi speech, represented by Governor-General Julie Payet in Parliament. Read in Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II.
The idea is to address climate change in addition to a so-called green recovery plan to create jobs. National Day Care Program It will help working mothers who were affected by the epidemic, Loss of 30 years of employment benefits In three months.
Hassan Youssef, president of the Canadian Labor Congress, an organization of labor unions, said: “The epidemic has exposed some of the problems in our social security networks.
Given the record number of unemployment across the country, linking the country’s social security network would probably be a welcome addition, said policy professor Dr. “Because Canadians have a real passion for helping each other,” Brock said.
In addition to offering pay subsidies and other measures, the government has bridged the gap With the emergency program Which paid unemployed workers ਕੈਨੇ 2,000, approximately 500 1,500, every four weeks, which in some cases exceeded the earnings of some recipients.
Instead of extending the program when it expires in early December, the idea is to replace it, as well as unemployment insurance and other federal programs that have a guaranteed minimum income.
This will require the approval of Canada’s strong provincial governments, which regulate many social programs and prohibit federal intervention.
Government ministers have hinted at a green recovery plan, but it could spark a revolt in the Conservative opposition, which in principle could pose a new political problem for Mr Trudeau.
His Liberal Party is a minority in Parliament and therefore his plan is to get the required number of votes from members of the opposition or the country will fall into an epidemic campaign. The next federal election is scheduled for three years. No government in Canadian history has lost a speech on the throne.
Details of how Mr Trudeau will pay for any new initiatives will not be released until he releases the budget. But there is already widespread debate How much more can the government afford? Its losses have not been raised to post-World War II levels due to epidemic costs.
Most economists agree that the government needs to continue spending on aid programs because of the epidemic. But some economists argue that Mr. Trudeau does not have unlimited licenses.
“Homes and businesses still need continued support,” said Douglas Porter, chief economist at Bank of Montreal. “But I’m not sure it’s time to move on and come up with all sorts of new, big, bold policy initiatives when we don’t know where we’re going in six months. ”
In recent times, Mr. Trudeau’s party has sought to cool the country’s hopes for a bold strategy in response to the growing number of coronavirus cases.
Policy Professor Dr. “But retreating will damage Mr. Trudeau’s already tarnished reputation as a great communicator,” Brock said.
“There’s a question about Trudeau,” he said. “Does he really understand the files, the business of the government and the question of ethics?” Does he get it? ”
“That image is beginning to connect with him,” he added. “It’s dangerous. He knows he has to do something, but it must be something he can accomplish. ”
