Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who’s been in power since 2015, said he’s confident that in just a couple more years people will start to benefit from his policies.

The PM made the comments to reporters after being asked how he can improve in the polls, where he’s getting hammered by the Poilievre Conservatives, and in particular younger voters have turned on him.

Housing and rent costs have nearly doubled since Trudeau took office in 2015, exasperated by his mass immigration policy that far outpaced housing supply.

But the Liberals’ newly introduced policies, such as allowing young Canadians to have a 30-year mortgage instead of 25-years, and forcing banks to take a renter’s monthly payments into consideration when issuing a credit rating, will somehow allow individuals under 40 — the majority of whom have given up on ever being able to afford a home — to live out their dream of having a 2 bed, one bath tear down for just under $1 million.  

“I am confident that as Canadians see these measures happening, they will start being more optimistic about their future the way we need them to be, to grow a strong economy, to build a stronger future,” Trudeau said.

“That’s our focus, fairness for every generation starting right now,” he added, despite being in power for nearly a decade.

The Prime Minister further said that the next election “in a year and a half” will force Canadians to ask what kind of a country they want to live in, one where governments are heavily involved in Canadians’ lives, like his, or “Whether governments should just get out of the way and leave people to fend for themselves,” like what he said Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre wants to do. 

71% of Canadians want Trudeau to step down as PM, as per a recent poll by Mainstreet Research.
