Conservative Party firebrand and vocal critic of the standing government Pierre Poilievre spoke on Friday about how Canadian unemployment is climbing at the same rate that it’s falling right across the border in the US. Poilievre started off with, “Last month, a half-million Americans got new jobs as the American unemployment rate fell to just 5.8 percent. Here in Canada, we lost 68,000 jobs, as our unemployment rate rose above eight percent. We have the second-highest unemployment rate in the G7. Only socialist Italy, a country whose policies Trudeau is trying to emulate, has higher unemployment than Canada.” “But the UK, the US, Germany, Japan and France all have lower unemployment than Canada. All of them have been working to reverse big-government policies, slowly reducing the size of their deficits, opening their economies to more competition, and leaving more money in the hands of those who earned it. Furthermore, those countries got themselves vaccines; they didn’t waste 100 days getting duped by China.”
