Suvivor: Liberal Party Edition

Survivor was developed in 1992, it as a reality based television show that has been produced in many countries with contestants playing games to outwit, outplay and outlast each other to secure the prize of one million.

Canadian politics has taken a turn for worse lately with the official opposition refusing to provide a responsible alternative in parliament to the policies of the Conservative led government since losing power in 2006.

We have been bombarded by political games on the front pages for years that provides very little relief for the Liberal Party of Canada.

Double Dip Fears
We are reliant on a recovering Global economy. The Federal Government is moving forward on bringing more Free Trade deals with Europe and Bric countries. More experts are talking about the slow down in the United States economy and the possibility of a double dip. As the majority of our trade is North and South it will slow our recovery and may drag us back into a recession.

The BRIC are both the fastest growing and largest emerging markets economies. They account for almost three billion people, or just under half of the total population of the world. In recent times, the BRIC have also contributed to the majority of world GDP growth. According to various economists projections, it is only a matter of time before China becomes the biggest economy in the world - sometime between 2030 and 2050 seems the consensus. In fact, Goldman Sachs believe that by 2050 these will be the most important economies, relegating the US to fifth place. - Economy Watch

National Media Fails To Report Canadian Success
