JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: CANADA’S POLITICAL TRAIN WRECK OF A PRIME MINISTER, JUSTIN TRUDEAU, SETS AS HIS FIRST BIG POST-ELECTION TASK NOT TO REPAIR SOME OF THE DAMAGE HE HAS CAUSED CANADA BUT TO TRY GAINING HIMSELF VALIDATION AND STATUS IN NEW YORK WITH A U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL NON-PERMANENT SEAT   Leave a comment

“Trudeau faces another tough vote — Canada’s bid for a UN Security Council seat”

Response to a comment which said, “Canada has no chance at a seat on the Security Council.”

 

I sincerely hope you are right.

The very last thing anyone needs to do is to give Justin Trudeau any kind of validation.

The Prime Minister needs to apply himself to serious work repairing all the damage he has inflicted at home, but he literally doesn’t seem to know how to start.

Here is a train wreck of a national leader looking for exalted status in New York. It is bitterly laughable.

In the recent election, Trudeau set an all-time record for low support from voters, with just under one-third of total. Two-thirds of the country voted against this ineffective man who yet manages still to head the government, a rather sad reflection on the quality of Canadian democracy.

Had the opposition parties offered a stronger choice of candidates than they did, Trudeau would undoubtedly be unemployed.

Remember Bill Clinton’s anecdote about the little reminder sign he used during his election campaign: “It’s the economy, Stupid”?

In the hapless, drifting, unfocussed Trudeau’s case, the sign could read: “It’s the country, Stupid!”

Response to a comment about Pierre Trudeau’s government saying, “like high interest rates unemployment bankruptcies?? largest deficits by any PM?? that Trudeau?”

Sorry, leaders don’t create the national economy, although they like to take credit when it does go well.

The American and the world economy of Pierre’s time, setting all the big levers for ours, were entirely different than they are now.

You cannot compare, unless you take perverse pleasure in comparing apples and oranges.

Pierre set a high standard for the country’s independence in world affairs. And for justice and decency.

Justin has forgotten, or ignored, all of it.
