Globe and Mail– Justin Trudeau and his arrogant divisive manner brought this on I’m omitting the Ibitson gibberish- read his spin at the link above.
And the covidian cult will have to realize their virtue signalling was all for naught.
Going for facts here:
The Prime Minister must accept much of the responsibility for one of the largest police operations in Canadian history, launched Friday, to break up a weeks-long (protest) occupation of Ottawa’s downtown core by protesters.
His divisive actions over the past six months ( years and years) contributed to the mess: the city centre cordoned off by police; Parliament forced to suspend a sitting; the first invocation of the Emergencies Act since it was enacted; dozens of arrests.
This is on him.
Is invoking the Emergencies Act too much? Time will tell
Time has already told us. It was!
Justin Trudeau needs to show he can lead during a crisis
Justin cannot lead- he can only divide and then he true believers follow
This protest, which requires a massive police response to disperse, is uniquely Canadian. Our leaders bear the responsibility for that, Justin Trudeau above all.
Mr. Trudeau won an election too. (though he lost the popular vote, again). But during the campaign, he made vaccine mandates an issue, knowing it would discomfit the Conservatives. Since then, he has called mandate opponents misogynists and racists, a fringe minority with unacceptable views. Those who are demonized demonize back.
Turning opponents of pandemic restrictions into the Other helped Justin Trudeau get re-elected. The (massive protest) occupation is the fallout.
He continues to stoke polarization, even now. In the House this week, Mr. Trudeau accused Conservative MP Melissa Lantsman, a descendent of Holocaust survivors, of standing with “people who wave swastikas.” Did he apologize? Are you kidding?
Mr. Trudeau has absolutely no tolerance for anyone who gets in his way. We saw it mere months after he was elected, when the Prime Minister elbowed an NDP MP aside during a dispute on the floor of the House.
He pressed his attorney-general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to intervene in a criminal prosecution. Ms. Wilson-Raybould and another minister ultimately resigned in protest.
He prorogued Parliament rather than face up to questions surrounding his family’s involvement in the WE Charity.
And with tempers and nerves at a breaking point after two years of pandemic, he continues to vilify those who oppose him over mandates, knowing it will embarrass the Conservatives, however much it corrodes public discourse.
The bill’s about to come due for Trudeau’s Liberals, and it won’t be pretty
Pierre Trudeau made many people angry. So did Brian Mulroney. So did Stephen Harper. But none of them caused anger so dark and deep that people drove tractor trailers to Ottawa and parked them in front of Parliament, waving anti-Trudeau flags, with (many tens of thousands perhaps 100,000++?!) others joining them in support.
When the Conservatives criticize Mr. Trudeau for dividing the country with his rhetoric, they are posturing. But on a fundamental level, they are also right.
And when history is documented..
But there will also be a chapter on the protests. Those who admire Mr. Trudeau will find it hard to read.
