The Council of Canadians is deeply concerned by the Trudeau government's record of broken promises and is mobilizing to stop his most recent egregious actions including the approval of BP drilling oil and gas wells off the coast of Nova Scotia and his intention to impose an 'Oil Measures Act' on British Columbia and First Nations.
During the 2015 federal election, Justin Trudeau promised to "make every vote count" and that the 2015 election would be the last under the first-past-the-post voting system. On February 1, 2017, Trudeau abandoned that pledge. At that time, NDP MP Nathan Cullen stated, "What Trudeau proved himself today was to be a liar, was to be of the most cynical variety of politician." The Trudeau government has also stalled on its promise to address the voter suppression measures in the Harper government's Fair Elections Act.
