Canadian farmers from across the country have expressed disappointment in the Trudeau government, saying his lockdown policies have significantly damaged their livelihood.
In an American-style attack advert, the Grain Farmers of Ontario launched a skin-shredding attack on the prime minister, saying that "Trudeau has been asking farmers to go more and more into debt since the pandemic started."
"It takes millions of dollars to put crops in the ground, but prices are unstable and collapsing," asked the grain farmers. "Why should farmers shoulder that risk alone?"
The Grain Farmers of Ontario also took time to draw the stark comparison between Trudeau and President Trump, suggesting that his support of farmers during the lockdown was far superior to that of Ottawa.
As well as this, fruit and vegetable farmers have also been notably disgruntled with the Trudeau government's handling of the pandemic.
This time, it has to do primarily with the CERB cheques that the government has been sending Canadians, arguing that it has demotivated prospective workers.
"The Canadian workers they need to plant on farms are telling employers they’d rather just stay on the $2000 per month with CERB," reported Global News journalist David Akin.
