This Canada Day Liberal leader Justin Trudeau -- whose supporters insist he's basking in the glow of two byelection wins yesterday -- just received some very unwelcome news.
Abacus Data has released their annual poll of how each province ranks in the esteem of Canadians. And once again, Alberta has topped the list, while Quebec has placed last.
In the positive attributes measured, Alberta placed first in three of the six: best managed, lowest income taxes, and best place to open a business (the other three were friendliest people, most beautiful scenery and "place I most want to visit.") Quebec came in first in three of the five negative attribute worst managed, unfriendliest people, and worst place to open a business. (The other two were least beautiful scenery and highest income taxes -- the latter of which Quebec came in second.)
For Trudeau this -- especially the discrepancy between the best and worst managed provinces -- is rather awkward. Particularly as it turns out that Trudeau thinks that Alberta should know its place and let Quebec run the whole country.
"Canada isn't doing well right now because it's Albertans who control our community and socio-democratic agenda. It doesn't work," Trudeau declared in a French-language interview.
As it turns out, Canadians don't feel that way. In fact, it seems that Canadians seem to think that Canada should be run a lot more like Alberta is run, and a lot less like how Quebec is run.
Justin Trudeau's narcissistic views on Canada are out-of-touch.
