Maxime Bernier should be returned to cabinet

In an interview with CTV Maxime Bernier makes it clear that is ambition is to become a Minister not a Prime Minister. Personally I think Mr. Bernier would make the greatest Prime Minister since Wilfrid Laurier, but realistically that is a long term goal. In the short term, the government and the people of Canada can be well served by putting this man back into cabinet.

Few Canadian politicians are as thoughtful and passionate about the issues facing Canada today. Take a look at this video of Mr. Bernier explaining the issues around inflation and the Bank of Canada:

This video was posted back in November but we can already see the sort of market distortions that he was warning about. The media has recently reported that Canadians have too much debt and that it is not sustainable. This is a direct effect of the Bank of Canada lowering interest rates to a point that easy credit is readily available, thus distorting the market.

As far as I know only Maxime Bernier is talking about this fundamental economic issue in Canada. We need people with this sort of vision and foresight to return to cabinet.

What a refreshing novelty- a politician who took basic economics and actually listened to the lessons.

Let it go. Nothing good will come from it.
