For example, Russia and Saudi Arabia sign on to global climate treaties, while they keep building up their energy sectors.
China and India have signed on, yet emissions continue to grow rapidly in both nations over time.
Germany has signed on, while also implementing policies that build up their immense manufacturing sector.
Japan has signed on, and is viewed by most as a very environmentally-friendly country, yet they are making a shift towards clean coal power, seeking to rapidly build new coal powerplants.
All of those countries, despite having wildly different political systems ranging from democratic to totalitarian, realize that to cripple their own nation for virtue-signalling purposes would be absurd.
Yet, Justin Trudeau doesn’t care.
Just take a moment to think about the consequences of Trudeau’s ‘green agenda’, combined with the massive increase in our debt.
We will be shipping jobs to foreign countries, letting others gain wealth while we suffer, and become more and more dependent on foreign money, since foreign banks and foreign countries will own us.
While this could cause a serious crisis, it could also cause something just as bad: A long-term decline in our standard of living.
Day by day, week by week, month by month, opportunity and wealth will slowly slip away from Canada.
Our people will become poorer, more desperate, and less able to chart their own future.
The consequences will be things we are already seeing today: Rising crime, declining mental health, and rising division.
Of course, Justin Trudeau and his elitist friends won’t feel the consequences of any of this.
They can just go to some other country – a country smart enough not to impose Trudeau’s policies – or they can live in a well-protected enclave within Canada where some wealth and opportunity will still exist.
The consequences will be paid by us, hard-working, regular Canadians.
Like always, we will be the ones who suffer.
Trudeau doesn’t care about that.
He never has. He never will.
