Justin Trudeau wants Canada to become the world’s “first postnational state”. Judging by all available metrics, he's well on his way. Our country is divided, and our leadership insists on putting Canadians last.
In his first hundred days in office, Justin “Current Year” Trudeau blew $5.3 billion on spending commitments, despite Canada's economic struggles. Shockingly, 80% of that was spent outside of the country (a large portion of which was spent on refugees and helping the Third World “fight climate change”), and not on the Canadians who had elected him.
In spite of our abundance of natural resources, our government refuses to support businesses that would extract it. Instead of taking advantage of Albertan oil, which is more environmentally and ethically sound than importing oil reserves from repressive OPEC member states and petroleum-rich dictatorships, we hamstring our own oil market by refusing to develop our most promising reserves. In the name of promoting “environmentalism”, we’ve endorsed lunacy.
British Columbians for Prosperity has documented the anti-Canadian oil bias our media pushes. Canadians have bowed to this pressure en masse, and our government seems comfortable pushing back on what is potentially Canada’s most profitable industry. The facts don’t seem to matter anymore.
We are being eaten away from the inside as the concept of Canada is diluted by our immigration policy. Thanks to the policies introduced under Trudeau the Elder, we have become a cultural sponge, soaking up the worst elements of third-world cultures, whilst simultaneously expelling the western values that made our country great.

Our history and heritage are full of life and vibrancy -- we are descended from great empires built by great peoples. In spite of our rich background, our school system focuses on instilling white guilt in students for “oppressing” natives and ignores the accomplishments we’ve achieved through the application of western values. All indications suggest this is only going to get worse under Trudeau.
This goes for the rest of our government’s anti-Canadian agenda. Instead of helping Canadians, our Prime Minister prefers to spend his time taking photo ops with non-citizens and proudly touts how much debt we’re going into in order to fund the agendas of dictators in other countries. We have a failing healthcare system, a floundering economy, and a raft of social services that are rendering us bankrupt. Yet we think we’re in a position to be giving money away? If we’re going to take tax money from taxpayers, we should at least reinvest that money back into our own country.
You shouldn’t have to throw money at the Middle East or Africa to avoid accusations of bigotry. Nor do you have to spend it on fighting “climate change”, or making up for the mistakes of Angela Merkel.
Unfortunately, it appears as though both our government and our CBC-indoctrinated citizenry wants to see our country fail. Canadians are deathly afraid of nationalism and patriotism. Any thought that we should place more value on Canadians is tantamount to asking for a Fourth Reich. Sorry, but what we need right now -- more than ever before -- is a Canadian nationalism. We can't keep putting Canadian interests last.
As we watch European countries become increasingly unstable we shouldn’t emulate their guilt-driven open borders policies. Germany is a mess. Sweden is on the verge of collapse. Why would we emulate their failing systems? We shouldn’t be tossing our tax dollars across the Atlantic in the name of altruism.
I’m not particularly proud of our government. However, I love our country and its people. I love the fact that we are more free than other nations, that we have opportunity here, and that Canadians are generally peaceful and reasonable. There’s a reason millions of people want to come to this country. I want Canada to succeed, not fail, and for us to have the potential to become an even greater nation.
“I love my country” is something I can still say with pride. In my mind, to love your nation is to respect your heritage, your culture, and your identity. But you can only capitulate and compromise so much before you've lost your nation. It’s about time we get Canada’s own Nigel Farage or Marine Le Pen. We need to be united under something more significant than a flag.
