We need politicians who live in the real world

Canada’s Heritage Minister Mélanie Joy does not live in the real world with the rest of us. In fact, no Liberal knows anything about the real world, which is why we keep seeing such nonsense as “climate change” measures (and taxes on a phenomenon that does not even exist) or, quite recently, an attempt to do away with the time-honoured principle of doctor-patient confidentiality.
