COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY AARON WHERRY IN CBC NEWS

 

Champion of diversity or high-profile hypocrite? Who is Justin Trudeau, anyway?

All human beings contain contradictions – but when politicians undermine their own images, they pay a price

 

Trudeau is worth no additional discussion. How many words should be written and read about such a disappointing man?

For me, it is his basic performance in office that most counts, and that has not only been awful, it has, in foreign affairs, shut the door on all of our best Liberal 20th century traditions. Just slammed it shut.

Failed important promises such as vote reform? Ignored major national problems such as our oil industry’s plight? Childish antics on trips abroad several times? Letting down conscientious ministers in a scandal?

Those are all important, but flying down to plead with Donald Trump to help him in difficulties with China, difficulties caused entirely by his own decisions and those of his Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland, is more than I can stomach.

Not having the judgment even to understand that Donald Trump is, literally, the last man on earth with any influence over China, or even much regard for Canada, is almost beyond understanding.

Trudeau is hopelessly disappointing when it comes to statesmanship or leadership.

The discovery that, for a major part of his years, the man regarded black-face routines as funny and worth repeating is “icing on the cake,” as it were.

Here is complete lack of judgment repeatedly displayed, combined with the arrogance to still ask for your vote.

He should resign. Instead we get another “apology” to add to the stack he has already freely distributed on a dozen subjects.
