Canada's Trudeau corrects woman for using 'mankind' at town hall

Trudeau is an insult to feminism – and to seriousness

The past two weeks have not been kind to Justin Trudeau’s image. He decked his family out in colourful costumes, dragged them halfway across India, and wound up with the worst press of any Canadian PM on any foreign trip that anyone can remember. Canada-India relations are now in possibly their worst shape ever.

After that, he came home to introduce his relentlessly female-friendly budget (the one that made 358 references to “gender”). The best that can be said is that nobody minded it too much. Few of the females I know seemed particularly grateful for the extra-special treatment. Like the Indians, they just felt condescended to. “I’m sick of gender politics,” one friend groused to me. “What matters is that we can’t get anything in Asia right. ”

But pandering is what Mr. Trudeau does best. He wants to be more feminist than the feminists and more Bollywood than Shah Rukh Khan. The trouble is that he’s trying way too hard. So he just comes off as opportunistic and condescending.

Both the India trip and the budget − both of which should be routine affairs – have exposed the worst defects of Mr. Trudeau and his team. They are all politics and no policy; all play-acting and no substance.

Wow, there are some unhappy people up in Canada over what Trudeau had been doing.

Justin Trudeau marks International Women's Day with #MyFeminism

Justin Trudeau marked the occasion International Women’s Day by explaining why he’s a feminist. 

“Feminism means building a better future and a stronger world because when women and girls succeed, we all do,” Trudeau said. “So together, let’s make gender equality a reality.”

In case anyone needs the reminder, Canada’s Prime Minister is a self-proclaimed feminist and in a 35-second video issued Thursday alongside a lengthy written statement urged all Canadians to promote gender equality.

Will PM Justin Trudeau Ever Be Taken Seriously ?

Is it premature to evaluate just how profoundly PM Justin Trudeau and his governing administration have been debilitated by the ordeal from the trip to India?.

Seems it will never be dismissed through scapegoating to Indian or Canadian authorities.

Beginning with the Trudeau “people-kind” disaster, this has actually generated a global trustworthiness issue for this government, that was intensified from the prime minister’s in-cognizable babbling over the United States steel & aluminum tax problem.

The government has packed all of its own bureaucratic freight on a “wobbly buck wagon of political correctness”: it’s ridiculous proposals regarding the environment, gender-specific concerns, plus the never ending negative treatment of indigenous people.

**********************************************

Canada needs to start worrying about their own government before handing out advice to others.

How Kinder Morgan Could Make Trudeau a One-Term PM

And what about our prime minister? Where does he stand? In spite of his aggressive eco-branding, Justin Trudeau has been unabashedly pro-pipeline. Look no further than this remarkably fawning speech he delivered to the energy industry in Houston, Texas last year, beginning with a pointed mea culpa about his father’s National Energy Program. “It was a failure… The NEP introduced a level of state control over energy that hurt growth and jobs.”

Trudeau went on to brag to about delivering three new pipeline approvals for unrefined bitumen from Alberta. “I make no bones about it. We’re very proud of this… No country would find 173 billion barrels of oil in the ground and just leave them there.”

Extracting, transporting, refining and burning those 173 billion barrels of bitumen will dump some 122 billion tonnes of CO2 in the atmosphere, yet Trudeau maintains even to Bill Nye that this is the best way to fight climate change.

*******************************************

Trudeau pretends to be some caring environmentalist while he advances the oil agenda of his country, and it's all for the money.

ROYAL SNUB: Belgian officials say Trudeau meeting with royals would have been nice

OTTAWA — High-ranking Belgian officials are playing down a perceived snub of the Belgian king and queen by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as the royal couple spends the week on a state visit to Canada.

Belgium’s deputy prime minister, who is also foreign affairs minister, says a meeting between Trudeau and the royal couple would have been preferred.

When will CANADA (!?!) wake up?

CANADA?

 

You've got a President who fires members of his cabinet weekly, with chaos reigning in the West Wing that makes Russia and North Korea salivate!

You've got a President who, when he fires some people, doesn't show the decency and respect to do it in person but cravenly has a flunky deliver a memo or issues a tweet to let them know they're through.

You've got a President who defends white supremacists and talks of religious bans.

You've got a President who accused a former President of breaking the law and, when there was no evidence to support his accusation, refused to issue an apology.

You have a President who doesn't address the issue that Russians influenced the 2017 election and is doing nothing to counter act it for 2018.

You have a President who refuses to say ANYTHING negative about Russia or Vladimir Putin, the latter blatantly laughing at the United States these days with his talks of a super missile that can't be shot down and can hit America.

 

WHEN THE HELL WILL TRUMP SUPPORTERS WAKE UP?

Trudeau's disconnect from real issues only worsens

A growing number of Canadians are realizing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s priorities are increasingly disconnected from reality and the interests of voters.

That’s been helped along by a series of recent bungles, starting with his India trip fiasco.

When Trudeau arrived in India he was snubbed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi because of his perceived sympathy with Sikh separatists.

Then he dressed up in stereotypical Indian garments to the point of causing offense.

Our PM bungled trade numbers, claiming a $1 billion in new trade contracts with Indian firms when the real number was a quarter of that.

The icing on the cake? Convicted Sikh terrorist Jaspal Atwal, who tried to murder an Indian minister in B.C. in 1986, was invited to a dinner hosted by Trudeau in India.

i knew if a Canadian showed up in here again they would only bring up President Trump. Maybe they should be talking about their own government instead of pretending to know U.S. politics.

If there's anything the world loves it's a hypocrite like an American taking a swipe at a Canadian discussing U.S. politics on a thread the Yank created about Canada.

Canadians have a perfect right to discuss U.S. politics especially since Trump wants to renegotiate NAFTA to appease his political base.

You know, NAFTA, the trade agreement from which Trump claims America gets such a raw deal in spite of the fact that the U.S. has a trade surplus of 2.77 billion dollars with Canada.

=========================================================

No, Mr. President. The US doesn't have a trade deficit with Canada

President Trump falsely claimed the United States has a trade deficit with Canada, contradicting figures from his own administration.

http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/15/news/economy/trump-canada-trade-deficit/index.html

 

So please don't tell me that Donald Trump has no impact upon Canada. All Canadians have the right to discuss him if they so wish. Besides, the man's a walking horror show/comedy act so who can turn their head away from him anymore than they can resist looking at a roadside accident.

 

All that said, I notice that you NEVER address the multitude of issues involving Trump's behaviour in office. Your constant distractions elsewhere speak volumes about your inability to defend the indefensible.

As Trudeau vacations in Florida, details are once again scarce

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office is again sharing few details about his vacation this week, though questions about how the prime minister spends his private time have caused problems for the Liberal government in the recent past. 

On Thursday, officials in the prime minister’s office would say only that Trudeau is “spending private time with his family in Florida,” but would not elaborate on what he’s doing or with whom. 

“When they are having private time, that’s as far as we go,” said spokesman Cameron Ahmad. “I know it’s different when he’s out of the country, but it is similar to him spending private time with his family on a weekend. We don’t delve into the details of what he’s doing, where he’s going or who he’s with.” 

However, Trudeau’s office made clear that unlike in the past, this time Trudeau cleared his trip in advance with the parliamentary ethics commissioner. 

The prime minster’s previous vacations landed the Liberals in hot water. 

**********************************************

Trudeau is already back at vacation in Florida when he just left India. Too bad they don't hold him to the same standards as Trump.

Trudeau still owes us an explanation over Atwal

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau owes Canadians an explanation as to how convicted Khalistani terrorist Jaspal Atwal ended up in his entourage in India.

Instead of being up front and honest, the Trudeau government has gone to great lengths to mislead Canadians at every twist and turn of this ongoing scandal. The theatrics in Ottawa over the past 24 hours shows us just how far Trudeau will go to cover for himself and to hide his troubling relationships with extremists.

The Trudeau government has come up with the following excuses to justify this episode: that the invitation to Atwal was an honest mistake, that it was the doing of Canada’s High Commissioner to India, that it came from a backbench MP who acted alone, and finally, that “rogue political agents” within the Indian government “orchestrated” the affair to embarrass Trudeau.

Trudeau doubled down on the rogue agents’ conspiracy in the House of Commons, prompting the Indian government to issue a statement calling our prime minister’s remarks “baseless and unacceptable.”

Hopefully they get to the bottom of this someday, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it.

Trudeau's in need of a major reset

All is not well in Canada’s Camelot. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is suffering the mid-term blues and Liberals are wondering what the future has in store for them.

The polls show they’d lose an election if one were held now. No wonder Liberal MPs manned the barricades for the recent all-night filibuster, which would have seen an election triggered had they lost even one of the 250 motion votes.

The gender-lens budget fell flat, receiving condemnation from business circles for its lack of focus on the economy. It appears the public didn’t bite either. Canadians’ patience with deficits outside of a recession is growing thin.

Trudeau’s gone from international darling to, at times, laughingstock. Whether it’s the peoplekind nonsense or the much more serious India trip fiasco, both the world and Canadians are adjusting the way they look at our prime minister.

Meanwhile, the mounting stories of Trudeau’s warm approach to characters, such as Omar Khadr and Joshua Boyle grate on people’s nerves.

Canada to miss 2020 climate target: audit

Canada will likely miss a 2020 interim carbon emissions reduction target and will need to take strong measures if it further hopes to meet its Paris agreement commitment, said an audit released Tuesday.

Canada had set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions linked to global warming by 17 percent by 2020, from 2005 levels, and by 30 percent by 2030.

But Environment Commissioner Julie Gelfand said in a report that emissions are expected to be nearly 20 percent above the target for 2020.

Based on current efforts by the provinces and territories tasked with implementing the cuts, she said, "Canada is not expected to meet its 2020 target."

She added that "meeting Canada's 2030 target will require substantial effort and actions beyond those currently planned or in place."

Gelfand said most of the governments in question either had an adaptation plan that lacked basic details, such as timelines, or had no plan at all.

This is the big agreement that Trudeau claims was vital to saving the planet, yet he fails to live up to the promises. It's not even close.

Trudeau Spends $700K At Davos Summit To Blast ‘Pursuit Of Profit’

The Trudeau government spent almost $700,000 (CDN) on its trip to Davos, Switzerland last January. As the Globe and Mail reports, the government tabled the tab in the House of Commons last week but all of the bills aren’t yet accounted for.

While at the globalist World Economic Forum, Trudeau held forth on the need to fight climate change and how business leaders need to put workers before profits.

“Too many corporations have put the pursuit of profit before the well-being of their workers … but that approach won’t cut it any more,” Mr. Trudeau told the elite gathering at the chic ski resort of Davos. “We are in a new age of doing business – you need to give back,” Trudeau told the summit.

To get this message to the summit, Trudeau and his retinue went through at least $678,000 of hotels, meals, office rentals and transportation.

*********************************************

Making everyone pay higher taxes is a pursuit of profit by politicians like Trudeau, then they get to spend it on "free" trips to Davos.

Fort McMurray residents dubious as Trudeau waves the flag for oilsands, pipelines

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau toured a Fort McMurray oilsands mine and met with energy and Indigenous leaders, some residents of the northern Alberta city seemed less than impressed with the visit and what it all means.

"I was surprised he came to visit," said Edward Luski, getting off a bus at the downtown terminal after a day's work. "I don't think he's very loved for here."

The Friday visit, part of Trudeau's tour of Western Canada, saw him continuing to applaud his government's efforts to get controversial pipeline projects off the ground while keeping a mindful eye on environmental protection.

"We actually approved a pipeline that for the very first time is going to get our oil to new markets," Trudeau told reporters after his tour of Suncor's new Fort Hills oilsands site, one of the largest oilsands projects in the region.

***********************************************

The Canadian oilsands have become one of the most polluting spots on the planet. Only Trudeau could say he's protecting the environment while they bulldoze all the forests.

Why is Justin Trudeau bowing down before the U.S. internet giants?

More and more governments are rushing to confront the dangers posed by Facebook, Google, Netflix and other digital giants. But Ottawa has yet to grow out of its infatuation with them.

In genuflecting to these rapacious American corporations, Justin Trudeau and his two cabinet colleagues entrusted with the file... are failing to stand up for Canadians, Canadian companies and Canadian sovereignty.

Several reasons are proffered for their deference:

They don’t want to risk antagonizing the Donald Trump administration in the middle of testy NAFTA negotiations.

They are being particularly nice to Facebook since they are lobbying it to locate a data center in Canada.

They want Facebook to ensure that the Liberals are not undermined in the 2019 federal election the way Hillary Clinton was in the 2016 presidential election by Russians and others to help elect Trump, “the first Facebook and Twitter president.”

They don’t fully grasp the dangers posed by these American mega-corporations operating mostly above the law across borders.

These companies know more about Canadian citizens than their own government does.

Justin Trudeau and Jacinda Ardern are leading feminists

Sadiq Khan said Justin Trudeau and Jacinda Ardern were "two of the leading feminists in the world".

The mayor welcomed them to City Hall ahead of their Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in the capital.

They discussed gender equality with schoolchildren in an event marking 100 years since some British women secured the vote.

Mr Trudeau said he was raising his sons and his daughter to be feminists.

"If you think about it, we are in a situation where men are unfairly given more opportunities, more power and more weight to what they say and do because we have an imbalance in our society," he added.

******************************************

No wonder Canadians don't talk out their own country with Trudeau in charge. He's a feminist of all things.

Is your point that it is more manly to molest and abuse women and then lie about it afterward when you are trying to get elected President of the United States?

It's interesting how some men clearly uncertain of themselves (their finances, in particular) feel threatened by women in the workplace and anyone who calls him or herself a feminist.

We don't need a fake telling us he's a male feminist. Trump would beat him in a landslide.

Not in Canada. This country happens to be sane.

And forget the landslide fantasy involving Trump and anybody else. Right now he is even having difficulty getting fellow Republicans to endorse him as their 2020 candidate. After the 2018 mid terms it will be even worse for him.

Hope you don't stay up late too many nights worrying if a woman will take your job away.

Protesters built a giant pipeline to greet Justin Trudeau in London

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was greeted in London on Wednesday with a 98-foot fake pipeline meant to challenge his support of a controversial oil pipeline in his country.

The stunt, which blocked the main entrance to the Canadian High Commission, was orchestrated by Greenpeace activists who oppose a multibillion-dollar pipeline planned in western Canada across indigenous lands.

The Trans Mountain expansion, approved in 2016, will help oil companies reach new markets by expanding the capacity of North America's only pipeline with access to the West Coast, and it will nearly triple the number of oil tankers traveling the shared waters between Canada and Washington state.

Greenpeace activists said the project will take highly polluting tar sands to global markets, and that building the pipeline would make Trudeau's claims of climate leadership a "laughingstock."

"Trudeau is risking the health of Canada's rivers and coast, the water supply and livelihoods of many indigenous people, and undermining the credibility of the Paris climate agreement, all to keep some struggling oil companies in profit," Greenpeace UK oil campaigner Sara Ayech said in a news release.

Justin Trudeau’s Texas-size pipeline crisis

Polls suggest that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will face a tougher battle for reelection next year than many expected. Significant voices in the Canadian press — and not just center-right ones — have moved sharply against him and are entrenching the notion that his once-uplifting government has become stagnant and annoying, obsessed with public relations stunts and politically correct busy-bodying at the expense of much else.

It’s against this backdrop that Trudeau finds himself thrust into a pipeline crisis that could prove the defining test of his fast-ending first term. Forced into the unglamorous task of settling a high-stakes jurisdictional dispute, supporters and foes alike wait to see whether a prime minister best known for symbolism and charisma can muster actual leadership.

There is, at present, only one pipeline that links the oil fields of Alberta to ports on the coast of British Columbia. Known as Trans Mountain, it has shipped both refined and crude petroleum for more than six decades, yet growing appetites for oil in the United States and Asia are straining it to its limit.

Trudeau's disapproval rating high: Poll

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t a popular figure nowadays according to a poll by Forum Research.

The research company recently polled 1,585 Canadians about which political party they would vote for if a federal election were held right now.

A majority of the voters surveyed (about four in 10 or 43%) said they would support the Conservatives while close to a third (30%) believe they would support the Liberal party.

Based on the poll results, Forum Research predicts a Conservative majority government with team blue taking 207 seats. The Liberals would become the official opposition with 110 seats, while the NDP would trail far behind with 23 seats. The Bloc Quebecois would end up with six seats and the Green Party with two.

Justin Trudeau’s Two-Faced Climate Game

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — At the Paris climate summit meeting in December 2015, Canada’s freshly elected prime minister, Justin Trudeau, took the podium before his new international fan club and declared, “Canada is back, my friends!”

The young, charismatic Mr. Trudeau promised “sunny ways.” He was ideally positioned to shift the country to a greener future, away from its reliance on resource industries and toward improved relations with Indigenous peoples whose territories are imperiled by energy projects. Yet more than halfway through his mandate, he has adopted the backward energy and economic policies of his predecessor Stephen Harper, an ardent fossil-fuel promoter. Mr. Trudeau has revealed himself to be not a climate crusader, but a pipeline pitchman who tells the world one thing while doing the opposite at home.

Within a year of committing in Paris to ambitious targets, Mr. Trudeau and his federal Liberal Party had rendered his pledge meaningless. The government approved a pair of heavy-oil pipelines and a liquefied natural gas plant. Its members secretly cheered as Donald Trump was elected, and moved toward resurrecting the Keystone XL pipeline. (Two other pipeline projects were terminated earlier in Mr. Trudeau’s term, but he can’t take credit; one was quashed in court and the other was canceled by the company.)

Hanging in the balance now is the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from Edmonton, Alberta, to the outskirts of this city.

**************************************************

The Paris Climate agreement was a joke all along, with the Trudeau's out there never planning to live up to its promises.
