NATIONAL UNITY RISK: Trudeau Is Dangerously Dividing Canada For His Own Political Benefit

Instead of working to bring Canadians together by supporting industries all across our country, Trudeau plays regional favourites, punishing Western Canada while bending over backwards for Bombardier.

Canada lacks a unified industrial policy. Such a policy would be based on strengthening industry across Canada, including the energy industry in the west, manufacturing in Ontario, and the aerospace industry (including Bombardier), in Quebec.

A strong industrial policy would mean eliminating regulations and taxes that hurt the energy industry, bringing in strategic tariffs to protect and grow manufacturing jobs, and yes, sometimes it would mean providing support to Bombardier to protect Canadian jobs.

This would bring Canadians together and strengthen national unity, because it would show that all parts of the country mattered equally to the government, and our government was committed to making sure that all Canadians could succeed.

Yet, Justin Trudeau is doing the exact opposite. He is imposing policies that are destructive to the Canadian energy industry, plotting a “free trade” deal with China that will devastate what’s left of the manufacturing sector, while shoveling endless amounts of taxpayer money into Bombardier and doing their bidding on the world stage.

As a result, Canada is becoming more and more divided. Anger in Western Canada is growing, as a Trudeau is once again glad to take the oil money from Western Canada and distribute it for political gain, while strangling the ability of the West to generate that wealth in the first place.

The demise of the Energy East Pipeline is only the latest in a long line of cancelled energy projects caused by Trudeau’s horrendous policies.

And yet, in an act of total hypocrisy, Trudeau is now trying to deflect from his purposeful division of Canada by blaming the Conservatives for what he’s doing. Here’s what Trudeau said in a Facebook post:

“Aside from its being intellectually dishonest, the reflexive stoking of regional tensions is a political dead end. The Conservative party, formerly the Reform Party, trod that road in its infancy. It was a road better left abandoned.”

Arrogant elitist Trudeau must think we’re all stupid to try and pull off such a hypocritical and obvious lie. Not only is Trudeau the one stoking regional tensions, he’s doing it to try and gain votes in the next election. With the Liberals expected to lose seats in the West and in Ontario (particularly some of the rural seats they picked up in 2015), many analysts have pointed out that picking up seats in Quebec is a way for him to make up for losses in other regions and win another majority government.

As a result, it’s clear that Trudeau is trying to create a fight between Western Canada and Quebec, in order to take Quebec’s side and try to benefit politically. It shows that he’s willing to tear Canada apart just to stay in power, and the fact that he’s now blaming the opposition shows he’s willing to say anything to distract from his dangerous, divisive, and destructive agenda.

It’s incredibly disturbing, and it puts our national unity at serious risk.
