5 Years In
We're inevitably going to see a slew of "5 year anniversary" articles later this month...after all, there's only so many election speculation columns one can write before they become insufferable, not just to the reader but to the columnist writing them.
To get a jump on this, the Liberals have released their recap of the Harper years, focusing on the rising cost of living, and how it's impacting Canadians.
On the whole, I like the document's direction - even though the question up front is about Canada, the pamphlet focuses on the concerns of individual Canadians, rather than the health of a country as a whole. Which makes sense, because Canada as a whole is looking pretty good these days (minus our third period meltdown against the Russians of course) - but a lot of individual Canadians are still struggling.
And politics is all about individuals. The Conservatives figured that out a long time ago, which is why we see home reno and child sports tax credits, rather than programs to improve productivity and cut greenhouse gases.
It's encouraging to see the Liberals keying in on that same idea.
