While Justin Trudeau was in New York, he received an award from a “gender equity” group. I couldn’t help but notice that in his speech in praise of himself explaining how to force companies to achieve gender balance, he exposes himself as an utter hypocrite.
That’s because the methods he suggests employing require openness and transparency and meanwhile, he’s in the middle of repealing two pieces of legislation from the Harper government, that do exactly that.
But those two pieces of legislation would require native Chiefs and Union bosses to be open and transparent with their respective members and since those two particular special interest groups needed Trudeau to get rid of legislation they didn’t like, he was willing to forget about openness and transparency for the help they gave in getting him elected.
Justin’s happy to say that companies need to be more open and transparent, because it’s 2016, but he’ll let union bosses and native Chiefs off the hook because he needs to think about 2019.
