Justin Trudeau's Liberal government is celebrating 100 days in office since the big swearing in ceremony!
The Media Party is celebrating with them, providing lots of fawning coverage on the awesomeness of it all, highlighting their “achievements”. I don't recall media marking Harper’s first 100 days, other than to perhaps say there’d be an election any day now.
But, back to the amazing Trudeau Liberals because I want to focus on what’s driving them.
Conservatives tend to dismiss Trudeau as an incompetent idiot but he and his idiot friends won the election so while Justin may not be the intellectual Pierre was, he’s not dumb.
We need to stop dismissing his ideas and policy actions as “stupid” and realize that they’re the actions of someone with a particular worldview who does know what he’s doing.
Justin Trudeau and his team may be wrong and making mistakes but they’re NOT blindly flailing about. They’re quickly remaking Canada in their own image.
When Trudeau sends out ministers like McKenna and Carr to put up roadblocks to building pipelines, they understand the problems they’ll cause but they’re acting on their core beliefs as stated so clearly by Gerald Butts before he entered the political world.
Ministers talk about moving Canada to a low carbon economy because they want us out of the oil industry as Butts and Marlo Raynolds wanted when they led environmental groups which is now the view that informs government policy.
Besides the return of the long form census, their other boast is “Canada is back” on the world stage, even breaking out the champagne in celebration for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s visit.
Canada never left. We’ve always had the world’s respect even under Harper. It was the UN types with their particular worldview who didn’t like Canada then because we differed in our outlook.
Under Harper Canada still participated at the UN, was a major donor to the UN World Food Program, second in resettling UN refugees, but his foreign policy put more emphasis on the G7, the G20, NATO.
They prefer Trudeau because he wants Canada to cozy up to the UN since he shares their belief in global governance in a way that Harper did not.
It isn't incompetence it is a worldview.
You’ll see it in all of the Liberal policies and positions:
Tax the rich? Not because it works but because it fits the UN worldview;
Pull our jets home and stop bombing ISIS? It’s not about money, it’s the worldview.
In short, Justin Trudeau holds all the correct progressive positions of the day but he is not your father's kind of progressive but the new generation of the sort we see on campuses across North America.
He’s a far left progressive and that’s what has driven his first 100 days. Not incompetence, not a lack of brains but his worldview and we would do well to understand that worldview, so we can counter it instead of dismissing them all as fools.
