LILLEY: Premiers set to battle Trudeau’s attempt to invade their turf
Discussion posted by: IRWeasel
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doesn’t just have a fight on his hands to get his new agenda through the House of Commons, he has a fight with the country’s premiers. That may prove to be the more difficult battle. While Trudeau has been able to win over support from the NDP by acquiescing to their demands, the PM isn’t offering up what premiers want. That is especially troublesome for him given that what he wants to do is create new national programs in areas the constitution says belong to the provinces.
