Letter: Politicians make and break promises

Prime Minister Trudeau is a typical politician that makes lots of promises

To the editor:

2017 has started with an unpopular president that is doing exactly what he said he would do in his campaign to rule America (except throw Hilary in jail). His use of executive power looks more like dictatorship then democracy. The pen can be mightier than the sword if elected politicians fear losing their privileged job in the swamp.

2016 started with a popular Prime Minister that promised many positive changes in his campaign as well. He promised a much better electoral system, three billon dollars over four years for home care, to scrap the massive F-35 costly defense budget, and save home mail delivery. The transfer of funding for the provincial health care system in most of Canada is wrong. The biggest broken promise is keeping the budget under 10 billon dollars and the promise of a balanced budget by 2019. This will never happen Mr. Trudeau.

All politicians campaign and promise to spend money for city, provincial, and national infrastructure. It’s campaigning 101 to get votes. Even Trump will likely not follow through on this promise. So far Mr. Trudeau you have failed here too. Donald Trump is a narcissist that will likely be responsible for getting the USA into another overseas war. Prime Minister Trudeau is a typical politician that makes lots of promises and hopefully follows through on half of them. My hope is he can have a spine when dealing with a bully south of the 49th.
