    Surely this has nothing to due with Canadia electing a leftist. I mean, socialism totally works everywhere it is tried.

    I think the wildfires and not socialism is to blame for this

    Oil revenues are also a likely culprit, but it is fun to blame socialism.

    Canada actually outranks the US in economic freedom, so they're actually less socialist than we are.

    But recessions happen every 5 to 10 years, so trying to blame anything in particular for a recession is usually pointless.

    Oh bother...

    From your own link, it clearly does not.

    Which are likely tied to the glut in the world oil markets.

    There's so much oil they're shuttering refineries.

    Well, by way of the precipitous drop in crude oil prices, yeah.

    and gasoline inventories are through the roof. I think not having a hurricane this hurricane season ensured we had more than an ample supply of oil coming in to port.
