Do you remember way back before the “enlightened” Trudeau era last year when Stephen Harper wouldn’t go to Premier’s meetings to listen to their demands for more money? The media told us Harper was rude.
Justin Trudeau agreed and loved to fan the flames about Harper’s lack of regard for our Premiers, but guess what? They’re meeting right now in Whitehorse and Justin’s not there.
He was invited of course but some of them want to express their opposition to a carbon tax and suddenly, Trudeau doesn’t believe in the collaborative federalism he accused Stephen Harper of not supporting.
That’s because, as Justin told the media, he wants a strong price on carbon and if the Premier’s won’t put one on, he will.
This is bad enough but the real story here is that there’s no media hullabaloo about Justin strong-arming the Premiers and skipping out on the meeting.
