Liberal red swept across all 25 Toronto city ridings in this year’s federal election and it may be thanks to Ontario’s Conservative premier.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is among those who publicly criticized Premier Doug Ford’s decision to cut funding to safe injection sites in Ontario.
The MP for Beaches-East York believes that electoral reform will not happen by the next federal election in 2019.
In 2015, following the election of Justin Trudeau as prime minister, the Liberal administration recommended a number of initiatives and ultimately legislation that would replace the “first-past-the-post” voting system in Canada. In the wake of months of consultation with the public, some believe such alternatives as proportional representation, a ranked balloting system and online voting will not be ready for the next federal election. East York’s Nathaniel Erskine-Smith says it may take longer.
“The promise was to make 2015 the last election under first-past-the-post,” he said, “and if it’s hard to make the promise happen before 2019, we should still be committed to the promise in the long-term.”
Justin Trudeau made a trip to the Toronto Christmas Market with a large red sack in hand. In support of the 21st annual Toy Mountain Campaign, Trudeau brought in a donation of unwrapped toys for the charity drive.
When East York resident Michele Lupa first heard about the new Canada Child Benefit, she was surprised.
“Oh my god! How could I miss that?” she said. “They made a change to the child tax benefit.”
The mother of two, Lupa can apply for the benefit, which will pay families a monthly subsidy based on net income. The new benefit is tax-free and does not exclude families with only one parent.
Organizers of Pride Toronto are elated Justin Trudeau will partake in the summer celebration, the first Canadian prime minister to do so.
