folks think getting @cafreeland as a PM would be like having NZ's @jacindaardern for a PM. Don't fall for this crap, folks. Freeland is a neoliberal, not a progressive. Aardern is a social democrat and a progressive who leads a coalition of her Labour Party, Greens, NZ First.
The Labour–NZ First-Green Government has focused on the New Zealand housing crisis, child poverty, and social inequality. In March 2019, she led the country through the aftermath of the Christchurch mosque shootings, rapidly introducing strict gun laws in response.
Freeland is one of those people whose very privileged life means that she has some enormous blind spots, made worse by her focus on economic systems issues (business) and not socioecological systems issues. She bought the myth of free trade:…
She is an ideologue of the most dangerous sort, as her public persona creates the myth she is not one. Freeland perpetuates the Canadian Imperialism we've come to expect from the Libs and the CPC (Reform) that rose from ashes of the PCPC
She is to the RIGHT of PMJT, who campaigns left and rules tot he right. He has continued many of Harper's policies, and has failed to undo the worst of Harper's policies…

Freeland is not going to prioritize public housing, ecological regeneration, workers
"“I believe that capitalist democracy has proved itself to be the only compelling, universalist vision of how to live the good life,” Freeland wrote.
