Trudeau “is turning Canada into a clown country” — and his plastics ban proves it

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you see Justin Trudeau the other day answering a very simple question with the most spectacular answer?

He said his family was doing their part to reduce their use of plastics by drinking water from "paper-like drink-box-water-bottle sort-of thing.”

What on earth is he talking about? Is he using marijuana again?

Spend a few minutes on Google and you can find dozens, probably hundreds of pictures of Trudeau drinking bottled water.

In fact, our own Sheila Gunn Reid received an Access to Information request that shows — surprise — that he’s a huge purchaser of bottled water — $300 a month — on our dime.

Let me read the tweet by which Trudeau launched this whole comedy:

Canadians throw away 3 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. 15 billion plastic bags a year. 57 million straws a day. They end up in our oceans, beaches, parks and streets. And this has to stop. We owe it to our planet, and to our kids.

Hang on a second. Fifty-seven million straws A DAY? There are only about 36 million Canadians.

Have you used two straws today? And yesterday? That’s absurd.

Well, he’s citing an amateur report put together by the kooks at Vancouver’s hard-left-wing city council.

And if you look at where they cite the 57 million straws per day part, they link to this page.

It’s a website run by a kid. He set up the website when he was nine years old. His name is Milo Cress. He’s a teenager now. But he’s not a scientist. And when he was nine, he guessed that Americans use 500 million straws per day.

And Trudeau repeated that. Uncorroborated by anything.

By the way:

The CBC won’t show you Trudeau's "boxes of water" gaffe, neither with the CBC’s government comedians at This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

If it were Trump, it would be in the New York Times and Saturday Night Live.

What a clown country Trudeau is turning us into...

You said the kid is now a teenager, but then referred to him strictly as a 9 year old (and all that went with that) for the rest of your commentary. That type of sensationalist tactic discredits your journalism. Please, as hard as it must be to report on such absurdities as this straw claim, stick carefully to the facts! What you have to say is too important. Thanks!

DEBORAH GRAUPNER, you say, “…He’s lucky that we don’t hang him for what he’s done since being “placed” in our parliament by the UN.”

The fat lady hasn’t sung yet…

The acts against Canada by boy blunder are treasonous. He needs to be removed from office, and sent directly to jail. He’s lucky that we don’t hang him for what he’s done since being “placed” in our parliament by the UN.

And a child shall lead them……credit is due for real investigative journalism to the rebel team for the “kid story”. I hope a partial clip of that is posted on You tube. This should be a major embarrassment to the Liberal party of Canada but hey who needs censorship laws when you got the CBC self censoring? I don’t know what is more shameful, that more Canadians don’t have access to this type of information, that somehow Canadians just don’t care that a clown is running the country or that the opposition aren’t able to find out this information themselves and use it to their advantage, after which the liberals can have this child’s website shut down for spreading fake news.

Trudeau just got the quote wrong. Carl Sagan said " billions and billions is STARS" , not " billions and billions of STRAWS".

That clip of Trudeau was hilarious.

Wendy Lynn is believable when she says, (In 2016, China consumed 73.8 billion bottles of water!)
I know that I showed these Chinese Pollution photos yesterday, but I find it amazing that the Trudeau Government would try to blame it’s citizens for any type of pollution after seeing these photos. The Chinese are killing our Planet.

Thank you Matt Selenius for stating the obvious!… Your observations are evidently just too much reality for 95 per cent of the frazzled minds in Ottawa to absorb!… And, a great commentary on those who impose their political will on the second largest land mass on God’s green earth… i.e. dope smoking idiots!…Are we or are we not facing a sickening “punch in the nose” in years to come and all too soon???

Should our Honourable PM get his moment with China’s Premier, I could see Canada’s most virtuous & ecological citizen forgoing any discussion on hostages to instead lecture China about their use of plastics. Since tap water isn’t potable, everyone in China drinks exclusively from a plastic water bottles. (In 2016, China consumed 73.8 billion bottles of water!)

They infantilized the indigenous and clumsily though they were doing what was best at the time, but Genocide…No. Residential schools, The Indian Act and Reserves were not attempts to eliminate them physically which is what Genocide is. They tried to erase what was culturally important to them because they actually believed it was inferior and infantile and that was an unenlightened and inappropriately culturally superior world view that nobody today agrees with….but Genocide? No . The indigenous deserve special consideration and all agree, but to attribute the greatest victimhood that humans can perpetrate on them is not the way forward, and nothing but a gross virtue signaling exercise for Trudeau and the commission that called it such.

• Plastics disposal are definitely a problem

• But the solution to plastic garbage disposal was solved decades ago

• such as disposable plastic bags, straws, etc

• high efficiency modern incinerators with electronic scrubbers and filters

• they have been in use in Europe for decades

• they can even burn plastic which is only a form of petroleum, no different from burning oil or gasoline

• the solution has been there for decades

• why is it so difficult for our governments to see it

• maybe the solution is too simple ????

I think this genocide lie is a way to start………………………

Liza, don’t be lulled into wishful thinking, these people are serious and everything is written in the Quaran, the only difference being that they are following the ideas of Gadafi who was the one who first suggested that the Jihad could be started by immigration.
If You are young and willing to walk around looking like a letterbox and don’t mind breeding with a heathen, then you may survive for a while but when your man becomes tired of you he will have the skin peeled back from one side of your vagina and sown to the other side and you will be sold as a virgin.
I’m sorry, I am not trying to be personal, I just think that everybody should know the truth about these people.

I agree. Countries (China, India) polluting the oceans have to be held accountable for the disasters they are creating. Absolutely no doubt about that.

Even our marine life in lakes are being mutated by the estrogen dumped from women using the birth control pill and then peeing it out for the fish to absorb.
And people go fishing and eat that stuff.

I didn’t know water was in tetra boxes now. No wonder why he was stumbling because they’re so expensive no one will be able to afford them.
And how are you going to have a box to fit in the cup holder in your car?! A square in a circle? Or carry it on your jogging belt, or Climate Barbie’s bicycle?

This kid story has to get out to the public. This is just too funny/sad/embarassing and if the Conservatives don’t use this, they’re really stupid!

Survivors of every Indigenous woman murdered, from this day forward, will want some kind of payment. Sadly, money is always the motivator. Doesn’t do anything to solve the problem and has created a false sense of sympathy.
Notice how the whole discussion has gone from revealing the real facts of the report to this fabricated genocide. How convenient when the report produced what they didn’t want to hear.

It was Jihadi-Justin-Groper who copped to GENOCIDE…let him be investigated by the Islamic savages running the UN – he apologizes for everyone else…
And take any and all reparations out of Jihadi-Justin-Groper’s so-called Trust Fund and other ill-got gains!
Extradite Jihadi-Justin-Groper to…where ever…so his UN comrades can do whatever to him, and then don’t let him back in…he can have Sophie and their apparent spawn…the Mercedes and the Trust Fund stays!
Later, we can issue tags for any UN ‘personnel’…
Regarding the National Post – a part of the FNMP ( Fake News Media Party) – in light of the plummeting readership of the FNMPs and their exposure as paid whores, liars and traitors to Canadians – the courageous Barbara Kay and a couple others notwithstanding – I have to wonder why the NP won’t let me read any more articles unless I sign up for some thing or other, because I’ve read 10 free articles, or some such BS. It’s not like I’m commenting – I’ve had 6 or 7, 30 day suspensions on Facebook in the last 6 or 7 months and CAN’T comment…I must be on one of them Black Lists…that the CBC insists doesn’t exist…even though I’m PERMANENTLY BANNED from the CBC!

We should just ban the plastic-coated sack of shi…hot air – Jihadi-Justin-Groper and keep the straws!

I think this genocide lie is a way to start easing us into getting used to UN outsiders inside our country, aside from its use as another battering ram against our freedom, liberty and sovereignty. Everything Justin does is for societal control and easing us toward global governance via legislation put in place by our very own legislators.

Trudeau needs to appear worldly and important to everybody, it is good for his ego. Alas he is not very good at it, everybody knows he is stupid by birthright, a failure since day one.
The only reason that he is talking pollution is because it is the ‘in thing’ in Europe right now.
I must admit though that I think that plastic pollution is more serious than people realize. See video above.

Ezra, you often bring up that our 3rd world Refugees could lecture Canadians about the importance of free speech as many times that is the reason they came here, after losing it in their home countries.
I would rather these 3rd world people learn our system, get a job, therefore contributing to the system.
After 3-5 years, their reward will be to be able to vote on the way our system is run. Until then, I really don’t give a damn what they think, during which time we are paying for their Food, Hotel and swimming Pool.

ya Tucker Carlson was laughable at Canada. 2 nights in a row. I rarely see him comment on Canada. He pointed at Alberta as a dot in western Canada. I don’t think they take us seriously

I have a Big Iron water softener and Reverse Osmosis system. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Initial cost is irrelevant. Built in drinking water. Cost less than Justin spends. Look at me, I put a sentence together. How did the clown that pushed separation for the east be in power and criticize the west for the same desire? Shouldn’t smoke up before a press conference
commented 2019-06-12 21:18:47 -0400
Communism is lie-dependent!

Trudeau says our plastic is ending up in rivers and oceans. Is it? Really? Where? Is the garbage trucks backing up the water’s edge and dumping their load? I thought they were going to landfill sites. It’s a lie.

You wonder why socialist countries end up in the toilet, it’s b/c they rule based on ideology like this one. His ideology has wrought havoc on oil, next is plastic, what after that?

Boy Warren Kinsella is starting to sound like….gasp….a Rebel…
Interesting. The first person I ever heard suggest Justin Trudeau would be a viable candidate for Prime Minister was Lisa Kirby on Brian Lilly’s show with Warren Kinsella sitting by her side.
Too little too late Warren.

- Trudeau is a fool who has been surrounded by people his entire life who’ve told him how awesome he is. When he came to power he entered an echo chamber where he got more of the same. Then things started to come apart for him & he seems to be slipping deeper & deeper into panic mode. He’s at the point now where he has trouble handling softball questions that are lobbed to him. Drunk, high or both? It wouldn’t surprise me. $300/month for water? Are they bathing in it?

- The Liberals keep upping the rhetoric. They call pro-life anti-choice. Climate change has become climate crisis. So now we’re guilty of genocide because of murders of natives by natives. The Liberals removed transparency from how federal money is spent on reserves, many of which still don’t have clean drinking water. Trudeau mocked members of the Grassy Narrows reserve for complaining about the mercury poisoning on their reserve that the Liberals are ignoring. He fired the only native member of cabinet & kicked her out of the party for doing her job. Liberals have killed good paying jobs in the resource sector that could have lifted many natives out of poverty & dependence. But they care ever so much because they say so.

Trudeau is incompetent along with being a twice university drop out. And after 4 years of him scolding everyone in this country and his stupidity we are all fed up with him and the Liberal brand.Despite what we hear on TV or in the polls Scheer will win the next election. Even Kinsella doesn’t like JT and thats big news

Trudeau is definitely a bozo and has definitely dragged us into a circus. Spencer Fernando’s Twitter page said apparently Trudeau reached out to the Chinese and at first they ignored him and then flat out rejected him. What a stooge!!!
