I don’t say this lightly but watching Justin Trudeau stand in the House of Commons and vote against a motion to declare that the atrocities that are taking place in areas controlled by ISIS is genocide, was a moment of shame for me and all Canadians.
Shortly before the vote the Conservatives pressed Trudeau to explain why he wouldn’t support the motion. You need to listen carefully to his answer because you’ll hear him say Canada needs to let others make these kinds of decisions for us.
He says the Liberals don’t believe that politicians should be making these decisions because they need to be made in an “objective, responsible way”. Think about that.
It makes you wonder, does Justin Trudeau know what legislators do?
If he needs a lesson, maybe he could look back to the many times, even under Liberal leaders, that Canada stood with those who needed our assistance without waiting for the United Nations to give us the all clear.
