As Trudeau’s poll numbers sink and he becomes more and more desperate, expect him to keep doubling down on the culture war and trying to further divide Canadians.
The Trudeau government is planning nation-wide ‘consultations’ on ‘systemic racism,’ in what is clearly an attempt by a desperate government to launch a new effort to demonize and divide the Canadian people.
As reported by the Globe & Mail, “Ottawa is set to launch pan-Canadian consultations on racism, a topic that has stirred controversy and divisions across the country in recent months. The exact form and nature of the consultations is still being developed in the Department of Canadian Heritage and has yet to be unveiled to the public. Still, the government said it wants to create a new strategy to counter “systemic racism” and religious discrimination.”
Maxime Bernier summed it up well:
More Liberal identity politics to divide us into tribes, buy votes and justify big gov programs.
Get ready to hear self-appointed reps of intersectionally oppressed victims tell you every day how systematically racist and intolerant Canadians are. https://t.co/eiToQMoZn1

While a discussion of racism can certainly be had in a constructive way, the Trudeau government has shown no willingness to do so.
Instead, Trudeau has doubled down on social justice warrior culture war tactics, demonizing Canadians who disagree with him as “islamophobic” and “bigoted.” Trudeau even called the Conservatives “islamophobic” when they opposed his ISIS “reintegration” plan, which is not only offensive to the millions of Canadians who support the Conservatives, but is also offensive to all those who have been victimized by ISIS – including many Muslims.
Since taking power Trudeau has repeatedly shown that he sees any criticism of Islam as “Islamophobia,” failing to realize that being free to criticize ideas and faiths is part of being Canadian, and no faith – including Islam – should be exempt from our ability to criticize and question.
Of course, that’s not how Trudeau sees it, and we know the consultations will be a sham. After a certain while pretending to listen, the Trudeau government will announce that their consultations show tons of systemic racism everywhere, and new legislation – which limits freedom of speech and puts more power in the hands of the politicians – will be enacted.
Then, Trudeau will try to smear the critics of that legislation as “racist,” “bigoted,” and “islamophobic,” and will try to further silence dissent in Canada.
It’s exactly what the government has been pushing towards – including with M-103 – for some time now, and it’s clear that Trudeau is more than willing to demonize and split the Canadian people if he thinks it will help him hold on to power.
