Trudeau visits Fredericton students

Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau visited the St. Thomas University campus last week to promote his campaign platform on limiting student debt.

“Your government can’t just cross its fingers for your success, it needs you to be successful,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau’s appearance came on the heels of a Green Party rally on campus earlier that afternoon. Mary Lou Babineau, the Fredericton riding’s Green Party candidate, and Green provincial MLA David Coon had come out to promote the Green Party’s platform of free tuition to post-secondary students.

The NDP have also recently promised to abolish interest on student loans and provide educational grants should they form government after Oct. 19.

Although the Conservative party has not announced plans to relieve student debt, they have mentioned plans to let students work during the school year without a reduction to their loans.

Trudeau made the same speech at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON on Monday.

“We will make it easier to get a post secondary education, and easier to pay off debt at the end of it,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau’s plan doesn’t include free tuition, but it does include a bigger Canada Student Grant increase than the NDP promised, as well as a plan where students will not have to pay back loans after they graduate unless they are making at least $25,000 per year.

The Liberal party is also promising an investment of  $40 million per year, to provide more co-op placements for students.

    Student debt needs to stop at some point, a lot of young adults are crippled by it and we’re trying to alleviate some of those problems at consolidationofstudentloans.com

    If successfully elected to power, Trudeau’s Liberal Party will lead to destroyed businesses, lost jobs and hardship for people, and weakened communities !  For decades, Trudeau’s Liberal Party has passed RECKLESS RESOLUTIONS against the use of conventional pest control products in the urban landscape and by the agriculture industry.  Under a Liberal government, Trudeau will impose fanatical national prohibition that will inflict widespread and extensive business destruction and business failures.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-43B   Under a Liberal government, Trudeau will target ALL business operating in the agriculture, golf, and professional lawn care industries !  The Liberal Party is falsely alleging pest control products, desperately needed by the professional lawn care industry, are the cause of undefined health issues [ ?!?! ], and have never been adequately tested  [ ?!?! ]  ―  in fact, these products are among the most stringently regulated in Canada.  The Liberal Party conveniently ignores the fact that pest control products are Health-Canada-approved, federally-legal, scientifically-safe, practically-non-toxic, and will cause NO harm.  Overwhelmingly indisputable and conclusive scientific research shows that, as reported through Health Canada’s vast toxicology database, NO harm will occur when pest control products are used according to label directions.  The risk assessment of pest control products indicates that they are practically-non-toxic.  There is NOT ONE known cancer death from the proper use of pest control products used in the urban landscape.  The Liberal Party is also falsely alleging that neonicotinoid insecticides, desperately needed by the agriculture industry, are the cause of so-called bee colony collapse disorder  ―  in fact, if we had less neonicotinoid use in Canada, we would still have bee colony collapse disorder, because many bee-keepers are simply NOT competent to enough manage their hives.  Under a Liberal government, Trudeau’s fanatical prohibition will INFLICT DEVASTATION against the agriculture, golf, and professional lawn care industries because there are NO valid economical alternatives to replace the prohibited products.  Green alternative pesticides are bogus and dismal failures  ―  they DO NOT WORK and they are NOT RELIABLE products.   http://wp.me/P1jq40-24g   By definition, alternatives are INFERIOR, which is why they did NOT win the market-place originally.   http://wp.me/p1jq40-5R8   A vote for Trudeau and the Liberal Party is a vote for business destruction and business failures.  THEY MUST BE STOPPED !  Liberals WILL DESTROY businesses, assets, customers, homes, lifestyles, job security, families, children, loved-ones, and futures.  Because of Trudeau, we will live in the 9|11 era of business-hating and anti-pesticide terrorism !
