On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on some of Justin Trudeau's comments from his year-end interview with Canadian Press. With his poll numbers plunging, Justin has begun to lash out at his political opponents.
Angus Reid published a new poll and it’s so bad for Justin Trudeau.
With less than a year before an expected election, the number of people who favour Trudeau has fallen to 35 per cent, down from 46 per cent this time a year ago. For the first time since October 2015, he is no longer seen as the national party leader who would be the best prime minister.
Now, in his year-end interview with the stenographers at Canadian Press, he smears everyone who’s against him as a bigot. And the media is absolutely going to go along with it:
Justin Trudeau says he's confident he'll win re-election next fall by sticking to a positive, thoughtful approach to difficult issues, in contrast to the Conservatives whom he accuses of resorting to bumper sticker slogans that prey on voters' fears and prejudices.”
While those ideas might be "popular at first blush in a populist speech," Trudeau predicted that Quebecers will change their minds once they "actually dig into the real world consequences of allowing and encouraging discrimination based on someone's religion within a free society."
He argued that Canadian have become "more aware of the dangers of populism, the consequences of populism.”
Hang on — so the guy who bans pro-lifers from getting summer jobs grants is now for religious freedom? Got it.
