Canada has now had ten years of Justin Trudeau and his version of liberalism. It is ten years since he assumed the leadership of the liberal party of Canada and set about changing the party to suit his purposes. It is now but a fraction of its former self and unprepared to meet the challenges of an election.
But Justin Trudeau, with his ego, clings to power. He makes a bad deal with the new democrats to stay in the prime minister’s office. Yet he has little of the real liberal party left to support him. It used to be a party active and prepared to meet the challenges of winning.
Trudeau is looking at his major opponent and saying I can beat this person. That might be true if they ran against each other in one electoral district. Elections in Canada require strong, organized, committed support in every riding. They need candidates who can put their commitment and strengths before the voters. They need dedicated teams to support them. They need to raise funds for the campaign. They needed writers to help put the campaign concerns in local riding terms. Every riding needs experienced leaders and workers for the ground game. They need to know how to get out the vote.
But no. Mr. Trudeau abuses his listed supporters with endless requests for money for the central party. Nobody seems to care for the needs of the individual electoral district. Do they have volunteers, trained and ready? Nobody seems to care. Are the party people in the riding active in community affairs? Are they recruiting liberal-minded supporters? Are they encouraging potential candidates?
The liberal party has a leader who thinks he can put on an act for the voters, take a selfie with them and win their support. We have an elitist leader who leaves the party to his henchmen, who know little about the party they are supposed to be leading.
Justin Trudeau is but an actor. He pales in comparison to his father who saw the potential for Canada in a turbulent world. The younger Trudeau enables the bigotry and sedition of Quebec. He buys the Alberta cowboys a $22 billion pipeline and then says he is helping save our planet.
Mr. Trudeau should resign before he completely destroys the party of his father.
