LIAR: Trudeau Repeatedly Makes False Claim That Science Minister Won Nobel Prize

As his global image collapses and his poll numbers fall, Justin Trudeau is desperately churning out the lies.

His latest attempt to deceive Canadians relates to Science Minister Kirsty Duncan.

In the last week, Trudeau has twice said that Duncan is a “Nobel Prize winning scientist.”

She isn’t.

As noted by Global, Duncan’s official government biography says she “served on the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.” That is how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says individuals who worked on its prize-winning research should be attributed.”

Yet, at both a women’s leadership event and an event with Bill Nye, Trudeau called Duncan a “Nobel Prize winning scientist.”

On Wednesday he said, “The backgrounds, the experience, the CVs — a Nobel Prize-winning scientist happens to be the woman in charge of the ministry of science.” 

Wrong.

Trudeau is lying.

If he said the Science Minister was part of a Nobel Prize winning panel, it would be completely true, and would still sound impressive to many people.

But Trudeau has decided that the truth isn’t quite good enough, so he’s lying about it instead.

And in case any Trudeau supporters try to say there is some ambiguity here, Global notes that the IPCC itself told people involved with the panel not to call themselves Nobel Prize winners:

“The prize was awarded to the IPCC as an organization and not to any individual associated with the IPCC. Thus it is incorrect to refer to any IPCC official or scientist who worked on IPCC reports as a Nobel laureate or Nobel Prize winner.”

If Trudeau made the false claim once once, it would be reasonable to think it was a slip-up. But now that he keeps repeating it, it’s obvious that he’s purposely lying, trying to make his government look better through the use of deception.

Of course, it doesn’t make Trudeau or the government look better. It just makes him look desperate, sad, and dishonest.
