It's tough to be a female victim of violent crime in Trudeau's feminist Utopia.
In a little over a week and a half, four high-profile female victims of violent crime, their families and their communities have been on the receiving end of Liberal disrespect.
This week, the world found out the murderer of little 8 year old Tori Stafford, Terri-Lynne McClintic, isn't even in a real prison anymore. Instead, she’s gaming the justice system in an Aboriginal healing lodge in Saskatchewan — a cozy place without fences or cells.
Liberal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale defended the decision, clumsily calling McClintic’s kidnapping, rape, brutal bludgeoning and disposal of little Tori’s broken body, “bad practices.”
Meanwhile, Trudeau blamed the former Harper Conservative government for McLintic’s very recent transfer.
Last week, Trudeau assured MacLean’s Paul Wells that he isn't one of those people who blames his own lax migrant screening policies for the murder of Marrisa Shen in Burnaby, allegedly at the hands of a Syrian migrant named Ibrahim Ali.
In 2015, Christopher Garnier brutally murdered an off-duty police officer named Catherine Campbell. He disposed of her body in a garbage can under a bridge. Garnier claims the killing of Campbell gave him PTSD and now Veterans Affairs is paying for his mental health treatment behind bars, despite the fact that he never served a day in the Canadian Forces.
When pressed on this injustice in the House of Commons late last week, Trudeau indignantly sat down and refused to answer.
And this week while testifying at a House of Commons justice and human rights committee, a 9/11 widow and victim’s advocate named Maureen Basnicki was scolded by Liberal MP Arif Virani because she brought up Trudeau's $10.5M payout to convicted terrorist Omar Khadr saying it was a slap in the face of victims.
Liberals keep talking about what a bunch of feminists they are. They literally can't shut up about it. It’s gender this, parity that all the time.
But, the only gender parity I see is that Omar Khadr's male victims are being treated as poorly as the female victims of McClintic and Christopher Garnier.
NEXT, BC Director of the Canadian taxpayers Federation, Kris Simms, joins me to discuss her pointed and moving article relating her experience as a child growing up in the aftermath of Trudeau's father’s National Energy Program.
Then, we’ll close the show with a look back at some of your comments on our videos this week.
