In 2013 a reporter asked Justin Trudeau which country he most admired. “There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to turn their economy around on a dime,” Trudeau smiled and stated with seriousness. He went on to say how he admired (i.e., envied) how dictators could simply implement laws on a whim without the consent of the people, and added a nod to climate change policies as the left does not see that as a problem yet.
“There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about of having a dictatorship where he could do whatever he wanted,” he stated. No, Mr. Trudeau, YOU dream of dictatorship. You have shown the Canadian people and the world stage that you are a complete coward by hiding from the Freedom Convoy in your glass castle while diminishing the views of Canadians to that of a “small fringe minority.” Trudeau called opposing vaccine mandates an “unacceptable view,” but feels that handing all liberties over to government is an ideal Utopia.
Whether China is a dictatorship or not is another topic, but the real issue here is that the leader of Canada does not respect his nation’s Constitution or Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This interview was recorded before the COVID pandemic that gave world leaders a little taste of unlimited authority and they are reluctant to relinquish that power.
Internet trolls sometimes add a bit of humor to the mix. At the time of this writing, the website Liar.com redirects to Justin Trudeau’s Wikipedia page. Some say that billionaire Elon Musk is behind the joke, but that remains unconfirmed.
