Max’s Fishing Advice

People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier in a recent rally in Halifax “wants to make Canada great again,” and says he plans to do it through sweeping cuts that would return money to the pockets of taxpayers

Calling them cost-saving, the measures include cuts to the CBC, Canada Post and foreign aid to Africa, Bernier told a Halifax audience on Friday evening

“These countries are poor because they have socialist systems, they don’t have more free market systems,” he said at the rally to vast applause, which drew a crowd of nearly 300 people from across Nova Scotia.

“The best way to do it, like I said, is not to give them a fish, but to teach them how to fish.”
