As everyone knows, Justin Trudeau won the election on Monday, October 19th, 2015. The Liberal party had 184 seats in total, resulting in a majority government. As you may know, we needed 170 seats in the house of commons for a majority government,as it explains in the picture below. In the picture, you can see all the parties involved in the majority government. The green party had one seat in the HOC (House Of Commons), so they are not part of the majority government.
Most teenagers are very impressed that Justin Trudeau won because he was explaining he was going to legalize marijuana. And many adults like Justin because he promised to put up too $2500 more into everyone's pockets. That's approximately $210 a month. He also says he will cut taxes for middle class citizens, and create a fund for carbon reproduction.
But why are people saying he is bad? Well he is also claimed to be raising taxes, and spending billions on green energy to "jump start"the economy. So our economy is going down the drain. He is also removing bill C-24 ( if you don't know what Bill C-24, it removes the Canadian citizenship of terrorists.). This could cause many more terrorists in our country. Trudeau is also accepting 25,000 Syrian refugees. We would need more supplies and necessities.
In my overall opinion, I think this majority Government is a good idea. I also believe that Trudeau is going to turn our economy around. If he will lower tax rates for our middle and lower class, it would be easier to afford a house, food, clothing, etc. But on the other hand, I believe that the legalization of marijuana is a bad idea. Teenagers will think that there's not more thrill, and it would cost more, for less, and they would not want to spend even more money on the drug. They would use something way more dangerous, like cocaine, crack, etc. I feel that this decision should be re-thought, as it could cause horrible actions towards our country, and economy, that would be frowned upon in other countries.
