Conduct unbecoming: Prime “Bully” Trudeau manhandles MPs in tantrum over 46 second delay

Brian LilleyArchive

Yesterday, we brought you footage of Justin Trudeau having a temper tantrum in the House of Commons during which he elbowed a female MP. There’s a lot of hyperbole on all sides so I'll explain exactly what happened, and it isn't good.

What he did was beyond unbecoming of a Prime Minister. It was beneath him, his office and the House itself. MP’s have been ejected from legislatures for less.

The HOC was meeting to vote on a motion for time allocation on Bill C-14, the assisted suicide bill. Essentially, the Liberals were shutting down debate. Governments can do this and all have done it but while in opposition, the Liberals denounced the Conservatives whenever they sought to close debate to force a vote. Now that they’re in power, the Liberals do this faster and more often than the Conservatives did.

Bill C-14 represents a major change for Canada. Both sides have problems with the current bill and want amendments. The Liberal response is to reject any and all amendments and shove the bill through.

As MP’s gathered Wednesday night to vote on ending debate, opposition MP's stalled a little to show the governing Liberals that they weren’t pleased their Parliamentary rights were being trampled.

The delay that set Trudeau off causing him to march across the aisle to manhandle fellow MPs was 46 seconds. For this, the PM became enraged, grabbed the CPC whip by the arm, dragging him towards his seat. In the process he elbowed NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the breast. From her reaction, you can see it hurt. She didn’t know the camera was on her since that angle is rarely captured in the House. Were it not for the vote taking place, it wouldn’t have been filmed for the public to see.

Is this an attack on women, or an assault on feminism? No, but given how often Justin Trudeau has played his “I’m a feminist” card, he had this criticism coming.

Is it assault? It does fit the definition passed by Parliament. Section 265 reads:

(1) A person commits an assault when
(a) without the consent of another person, he applies force intentionally to that other person, directly or indirectly;

While grabbing one MP, Trudeau acknowledges he realized he hit someone else and didn’t turn around to say sorry or check if they were okay? Some gentleman.

None of this is acceptable in the House of Commons or any workplace. If you behaved like this in your workplace, you’d be fired or disciplined. The Speaker of the House stated clearly that Trudeau manhandled fellow members and this is not acceptable.

Trudeau’s initial response was that he was just trying to “help” the Conservative whip get to where he was trying to go. After being chastised by MP after MP and the speaker, Trudeau offered a non-apology apology. The kind where you say that you are sorry but …

Former speaker of the House, CPC MP Andrew Scheer noted the Liberals ran on bringing a new tone of respect to Parliament and they’re failing. NDP MP Peter Julian said this is the type of thing we see happening in other countries when we watch TV, and he’s right. This is the type of thing you see in far off lands, not Canada.

Justin Trudeau was not a prime minister on Wednesday, he was a prime bully.

He often speaks out against bullying, saying there’s never an excuse for any kind of violence against women but when a vote on one of his bills is delayed, he storms across the legislature, grabs people, yells at them and tells them to get the F out of his way.

That is a bully tactic, a dictatorial tactic. We know he likes China and now he's emulating it. We deserve better as Canadians.

Dark irony the Dippers are stalling on a government-helping-you-die bill – wasn’t this the big bulge in their pants when Svend “ringo” Robinson was on his ad hoc Kavorkian mission?

As for Junior’s juvenile arrogance and hatred of democratic opposition, well, the turd didn’t land far from the Bull did it – fuddle duddle and sunni ways to you.

Personally, I think he was just having a bad hair day because he was POed that there were large parts of Fort McMurray that did not burn to the ground.

Based on the following, there were at the very least two acts of assault:

It does fit the definition passed by Parliament. Section 265 reads:

Let’s see, first he elbows a women while laying his hands on the Tory whip.

In civilian life, there would be grounds for criminal charges to be laid . . . what the hell are we waiting for? Will the next assault on the opposition be with an AK-47?

Could be, dictatorships tend to have armed guards around their leaders for very valid reasons.

Well, he certainly shows the kind of stuff he’s made of. Then he tried to lie his way out by saying he was merely assisting the opposition whip through the crowd while his caucus cheered him like so many trained seals. Look on Canada and see what you’ve elected. Oh we had to get the mean old bogey man Harper out and let the sunny ways in. What a joke this country’s become…

Can you imagine the outcry from MSM had this been Harper or for that matter any conservative MP acting like this? Yet Liberals rush to defend Trudeau. Where is the outrage from the left????

Is there no legal recourse to remove Trudeau? He has proven he is unfit to be the leader of this country.

If Trudeau is truly sorry, he should demonstrate it by demoting himself.
May I suggest, Minister of Silly Walks?

Good job Bernie Trudeau and keep it up!!! It’s fantastic that Bernie Trudeau assaults people in the HoC.

You deserve this Canada. You choose a dim witted man-child and this is what you get.

All for the world to see – Bernie Trudeau assaults a woman in the HoC.

No problem for the MSM – they are all controlled by the goobmint issued CBC budget – $1.4BILLION PER YEAR – the “greases the skids” fund to keep all media party member reporting the same thing.

Embarrassing for Canada? Yes. But you deserve it Canada – you keep choosing fucking assholes like Trudeau, so you shouldn’t be surprised. In fact, you should be welcoming this violence Canada.
