SUNNY WAYS … SUNNY WAYS

Congratulations to Justin Trudeau (and his wife, Sophie Grégoire) on being elected Prime Minister of Canada.

Justin’s priorities which he has set for his first weeks in power:

CANNABIS:

He has said he would start moves to legalise it “right away”, based on the Colorado model.

CLIMATE CHANGE:

He has promised a climate change policy agreed with the provinces within 90 days of the UN climate change summit in Paris in November.

TAXES:

His first move will be to raise taxes on the richest 1% to fund cuts for the middle classes.

INDIGENOUS RIGHTS:

“We will build a renewed relationship with indigenous peoples on a nation-to-nation basis,” he has said. “That will include, for example, a national public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. It will include $2.6bn over four years for First Nations education.”
