There’s a certain irony about writing this piece on Valentine’s Day as it appears for many their Love for Justin Trudeau has gone stone cold.
Most don’t remember that JT was in 3rd place trailing Thomas Mulcair and Stephen Harper at one time in the last election run when he and his team started passing out the kool aid, which remarkably Canadians seemed to have a thirst for.
Without having the experience or background of either opponents, people with far too much support from certain media chains, swallowed, again, and again and again.
With a majority government came cabinet decisions that clearly were not based on merit. Not even remotely. It appeared to be a focus group and friends out of rehab Cabinet.
Same for his government’s visible agenda. Most of the issues our PM seemed to focus on were clearly what we, the poor peons, that pay for the government, didn’t really care about or hoped to see.
In 2019 while there are still issues regarding equality, visible minorities, etc, are these the key issues or simply pandering to social media where so many in some of these groups squeak the loudest?
Is Twitter and facebook really that important in running a county? As much as US President Donald Trump uses Twitter is it really the straw that stirs US policy?
From his grope, to India, to antagonizing Russia, China, the US, and a few other countries policy wise has the Trudeau government really moved Canada forward?
Even his Marijuana legalization has created more potential problems than it’s cured with, like the allowing of far too many illegal border jumpers, the cost being dumped onto Provincial and Municipal budgets without proper compensation to cover the costs.
Especially regarding the border jumpers it’s actually created housing crises in cities like Ottawa as well as more crime and other societal factors.
Again, another failure.
And now we have a clearly unhappy former Minister of Justice blowing it up in Mr. Trudeau’s face. It makes one wonder if JT has the right advisors?
After all if you’re going to assemble a cabinet by focus group surely you did your background checks right?
I’m sure Mr. Butts and Mr. Trudeau never expected this to roll the way it has, but ultimately, at the end of the day, the smoke of this is from the fire at their feet that they set.
As for the former minister, her timing clearly shows a personal agenda and while some are trumpeting her as a hero she clearly isn’t Thomas Mulcair who resigned as a Cab Minister in Quebec over principle.
This is how it’s done: LINK
Tensions between then-Premier Jean Charest and Mulcair erupted over the premier’s plan to allow the development of condominiums at a park near Orford, in Quebec’s Eastern Township. Charest shuffled Mulcair to the government services portfolio. Mulcair refused the new position.
He says he acted on principle. “I was being pushed very hard to sign an order in council that would have transferred land in a provincial park to private developers. I refused to sign it. I simply quit cabinet.”
This is not how MP Jody Wilson-Raybould has played her hand which looks like an awesome display of wicked vendetta geared for causing the most damage to those that ruined her run.
Thank goodness for Captain Creepy or this could cost Mr. Trudeau the next election!
As it stands now if he’s lucky, JT may be able to hold on to a minority victory, but even someone as nice as JT can lose to someone as unelectable as Andrew Scheer. Weirder things have happened.
Clearly we know at this point that Mr. Trudeau is more of an opportunist than a feminist, or any other ist. Imagine that, a politician and his team trying to play the angles? Shock!
Instead of shuffling his cabinet, maybe it’s time to shuffle his butt?
