Our federal politicians go back to work in a couple of weeks: the House of Commons is scheduled to resume sitting on January 29 and the MP for Battle River-Crowfoot is itching to ask Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a few questions.
"He's not living up to the commitments he's made," charged Kevin Sorenson. "A commitment not to have a higher deficit than $10 billion and it ends up nearly $30 billion; continuing to high tax -- 81 per cent of Canadians are paying more taxes now than they were before; I think Canadians are getting frustrated with it."
"(It's) from what I'm hearing here in rural Alberta, but (also) across Canada," he continued. " (In) Ontario, they're frustrated with Liberals provincially and federally; even in Atlantic Canada, the polish is coming off."
Even though there's nearly two years until the next federal election, Sorenson believes the Trudeau Liberals are in danger of losing it and he thinks the Conservative Party is in a position to take advantage of that.
"The tarnish is there; he's trying to polish it up, but I'm not looking so much at the prime minister, I'm looking at the opposition and saying 'can we be an effective opposition?' and we have been that."
