Trudeau’s Dangerous “Post-National” Agenda Must Be Stopped

A country without a nationality will not survive

Justin Trudeau has said he wants Canada to become the first “Post-National” state. He wants us to be a country without nationalism, replacing a shared national identity with his “diversity is strength” rhetoric.

This is dangerously misguided.

For both moral, and practical reasons, it is not possible for a country without a nationality to survive.

Here’s why:

The moral dangers of Trudeau’s post-nationalism:

Every nation is nationalistic. While the elites have tried to make nationalism into a negative word, it is the very core of why a nation exists. Countries are not simply land and territory. They are shared mental concepts. We share a common sense of being Canadian, and we imbue the territory of our country with a special meaning.

This shared mental concept is nationalism. It pushes us to defend and strengthen our country. It encourages us to feel a bond with our fellow citizens, to protect each other in the case of war and conflict, and to build a nation where all of us have the opportunity to succeed.

Nationalism (which I prefer to call Patriotism) also explains why Canadians pay our taxes, even when we are overtaxed and hate how the government spends our money.

We also abide by the laws – in large part because we respect the authority of our national institutions – even when we don’t respect our politicians.

And finally, contrary to the “diversity is strength” mantra, it is unity that makes us strong. A shared national identity can overcome differences of background and belief, forging all of our citizens into one Canadian family.

Without unity, without a shared national identity, our country will be broken up into every individual ethnic and religious group. We will be hopelessly divided. We won’t really be a country at all, just a collection of people temporarily living in the same space of land – which is not the same as sharing a sense of being Canadian.

Without a shared Canadian national identity, we are left with dangerous identity politics. That would destroy any hope of a shared national morality based on shared values and citizenship. We wouldn’t look out for each other, or support each other, or feel loyalty to each other as Canadians. Instead, everyone would break off into their little groups based on the grievances of the past, instead of coming together as Canadians to build our future.

That would be disastrous.

Canada is an incredibly diverse country, but that diversity alone is not our strength. It is our ability to forge that diversity into a shared Canadian identity that makes us a strong country. Forging that identity cannot be done without nationalism.

The value that nationalism puts on being Canadian, and the pride we feel in being Canadian citizens, builds an identity that can supersede all the differences and divisions that exist in our country. People of different backgrounds and beliefs can be brought together in our common national identity.

Identity politics does the opposite. It degrades nationalism, instead focusing on every little difference people have. Inevitably, this leads to societal breakdown, conflict, hate, and even violence.

What Trudeau either doesn’t understand, or – disturbingly – understands all too well, is that Canada will either have a national identity, or none at all. If we reject nationalism, Canada may as well cease to exist. There may still be a patch of land on a map called “Canada,” but people won’t feel any loyalty or love for it.

The defeat of nationalism would be triumph of identity politics.

If we want to save our country, we can’t let that happen.

The practical dangers of Trudeau’s post-nationalism:

In addition to the moral consequences we’ve looked at above, there would be serious practical consequences of a post-national state.

Canadian nationalism brings millions of people together to achieve a critical mass. That critical mass enables our country to speak with a unified voice on the world stage. That unified voice gives us authority and credibility, it is what lets us field a military, stand up for ourselves in trade deals, negotiate with other nations, and protect our interests and our people.

Canada is a vast nation, abundant in natural resources and wealth. Only a cohesive, focused, and organized group of people – citizens – can defend the incredible gift that is our country.

But to defend something, it must first have value to you. A post-national state is a country where citizenship and a national identity have been stripped of value.

If we stopped feeling a sense of national loyalty to Canada, why would any country respect us, or listen to anything we say? What would stop massive foreign corporations from trying even harder to monopolize all of our resources and leave Canadians blocked from any benefit? And what would stop other nations (acting cohesively in their national self-interest) from seeking to bully us into submission, or worse?

We can see how a post-national state would be completely unequipped to defend itself. We would be too busy fighting the identity politics wars in every city, town, and campus across our country. Meanwhile, our internal weakness would be a signal for every powerful organization and government outside our country to try and take advantage of us.

As a practical matter, without nationalism, Canada will be eaten alive by other powerful forces. History has clearly shown that countries that lose the will to defend themselves pay a swift and brutal price for being weak.

“Global Citizenship” is meaningless, only Canadian Citizenship matters

As we have seen, if Canada became a post-national state we would cease to resemble a real country. We would be hopelessly divided, and thus extremely vulnerable to dangerous outside forces.

This is already happening.

Justin Trudeau calls himself a “Global Citizen,” which is a very disturbing thing to hear from a supposed national leader. Justin Trudeau has no power to make decisions for the world, and he was not elected by the world. He works for Canada. His job is to look out for the best interests of our country and our people.

And yet, he has been pushing his dangerous globalist agenda throughout his time in office.

He has given preferential access to billionaires from China, and let that country buy a sensitive high-tech firm against the advice of Canadian security officials. He has given billions more to other countries while our own people suffer. He has weakened our defences, bringing military spending down to its lowest level as a percentage of GDP ever in our history. He has foolishly and dangerously rolled out the welcome mat to let everyone in our country, and then refused to secure the border as the consequences of his actions manifested themselves.

Trudeau shows far more loyalty to the “globe” than he does to Canada, which is what we would expect from someone who wants us to be a “post-nationalist state.”

We have now seen how dangerous Trudeau’s post-national agenda is, and the devastating consequences it could have for Canada.

That’s why we must push back against it. We must be unafraid to speak of patriotism and nationalism, and argue forcefully that the interests of our own nation must be put first.

The job of the Canadian government – and each of us – is to show loyalty and respect to Canada, and take pride in the meaning of Canadian citizenship. We must ensure that our shared Canadian identity is never destroyed by the divisions brought on by political correctness and identity politics.

Our Canadian national identity is worth protecting, no matter what globalist fools like Justin Trudeau may say.

Trudeau’s idea of ‘diversity’ is clearly ” Extreme Diversity”. There is no extremeness that he won’t promote and/ or tolerate. He can afford to live ‘ above it all’ apparently, as he can afford to move his family anywhere on the ‘globe’. The rest of us have to live with the results of his negligent ‘ social dumping’ policies.

Paul Fekkes

Very well said! His ability to pull back and move away and live apart from the mess me is making while insulting us at every turn, very much angers me!


The Left always tells the truth, wrapped up in homey slogans that look like the opposite. He wants diversity. To Trudeau and the Left that means conflict …………..extreme diversity means groups fighting and in conflict. So, he is telling the truth!!!!!!! Votes forever!

alan skelhorne

like the little boy from quebec said from the beginning… i have a majority, i will do what i want, when i want, and there is not person that can do anything about it. aqnd no one can.

General P. Malaise

justine is like his father a communist. they don’t want nations they want one big collective.

Louis Paquette

Thanks Spencer for this excellent article. I want to ask something though. Leftist liberals/ cultural Marxists who enable this traitor will never be convinced to do otherwise. Or to secure our borders. They are determined to ruin Canada and nothing is going to stop this. And even if stopped, too much damage will have already been done which is irreversible. I suggest – and would love to hear Spencer’s response to this – is that we form our own homeland for patriots and separate it from the more left-leaning parts of Canada. While very disruptive – it’s better than losing… Read more »


I agree. Of course. Separating western provinces has been tried before and failed…..also, Alberta is now NDP. And the city states in the West are all Left and going more left by the minutes. So, cities are who control elections………we aren’t a Republic like the US. My “solution”, and it’s not pretty, is to hope Trudeau spends and corrupts us into a deep depression, poverty and civil unrest. Maybe then Conservatives will be back in favour???

Louis Paquette

You are absolutely right, Susan Marit.

J. Jamieson

I believe that it is possible to reverse most of what Trudeau does, with a Conservative majority. It will be easier to accomplish that, before starting a mechanism to separate. Most of us in the Maritimes are Patriots also!! We, in Nova Scotia, PEI, Nfld. have forefathers who came here in the mid-1750’s and who built up this part of the country from nothing. It was back breaking work. We are motivated to restore the principles of hard work, no ‘free lunch’ and respect for the Judeo Christian principles. We have a great sense of loyalty to the Crown and… Read more »

I truest hope we can reverse what Trudeau has done with a Conservative government or we are done for good!


Good to see that others recognize that Trudoughboy jr and his father are two of a kind. Jr is simply expanding on his fathers start down the road of the globalist elite. They can be stopped, but a lot of people will have to wake up first and desire something different.v

Margaret Cameron

Then why did the Maritimes vote this time for Trudeau ….almost entirely liberal?

cam cromwell

marjauna see it really doesnt matter about weed and guns most people are going to do it any way gonna have their guns and weed as for politico conversations most dont have a clue..and pretend they do.weed got trudeau in..who you kidding..


There is still a majority of people in Canada that are either in an entitlilement situation, work for the government at some level or simply to dumbed down and apathetic to care. The average canadian is too dazzled by a hockey game or the latest celeb haircut to read past one headline. That is why the present selfie king is in power and knows fully well that the usual Liberal control implements will keep the sheeple at bay.


Oh, i hope you are wrong! And dread that you are right. My hope is a nationist populus leader like Trump will encourage canadian sheep to lift their heads from the grass they smoke.

cam cromwell

donot make the asumption that the canadian fighting men of age or older are sheep..they nlearned that in both world wars that wea re not


If we can get the populace to vote for Scheer we can defeat “Justine” and get our country back, with a renewed sense of nationalism and patriotism-it will take work and we all need to send the message to our friends that Trudeau needs to be gone-we couldn’t afford his father and we, for sure, cannot afford him.

Teresa Scott Bolen

Absolutely true.


Wake up Canada, stop his agenda, before it’s too late !


Thank you for a insightful and alarming article. We all feel it instinctively……..we are being virtue bullied to surrender out country to some global ideology. What to do? I can only encourage my family to get involved in voting for a new CPC leader who has different ideas of Canada.


Yep. From Soros to Trudeau Foundation. Obama also helped Trudeau get elected by sending his election team to Trudeau. So, Canadians liked dope for all, open borders, and ………what else? Oh, “I’ll spend a bunch and give a bunch of money away.” And got elected……….I can’t see ever a Conservative win with two left parties ……….

Arlene Rains

You so right but the question is how do we get rid of the idiot when over half the country thinks he great???

J. Jamieson

Which would be your choices for a new CPC leader?

Richard Courtemanche

A very careless person that Trudeau. A danger to Canada and its values. Naive and irresponsible… especially when he can’t justify his decisions intelligently or won’t even try to comment. Operating unilaterally in secret.


Scheer would make a great leader for Canada.


Let’s talk about the Canada’s next era of post-Trudeau post french canada
