It's extremely important for all of us to learn how colonialism has affected First Nations peoples in Canada. We need to acknowledge the truth of the past and also the present.
Put some effort into learning about the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and amazing contributions of First Nations, Inuit & Métis peoples, and double-down on your commitment to the work of truth and reconciliation by pushing for the implementation of all 94 Calls to Action.

@AndrewScheer There is a lot of misinformation and spin out there about debt and who is good for the economy: Conservative or Liberals. Here are some Trudeau versus Trump numbers:
Trudeau's 2017-2018 deficit increase = 1.6%
Trump's 2017-2018 deficit increase = 17%
@AndrewScheer Canada = $18.1 billion
USA = $779 billion
That is 49 times larger
USA's GDP is 12 times larger than Canada's
USA's population is 9 times larger than Canada's
Trudeau debt to GDP ratio = 87.3 (the LOWEST in G7)
Trump debt to GDP ratio = 106.1
@AndrewScheer Trudeau has the lowest unemployment rate in 40 years.
Canada is now rated 4th most desirable country to invest in by foreign investors - the USA didn't make the top 10.
Canada now has the strongest economy in the G7
Canada now has the fastest growing wages in a decade.
