“Why does free speech only apply to those trying to kill Canadian jobs, and not those trying to help the less fortunate? asks Poilievre.”
Justin Trudeau’s almost universally-condemned Canada Summer Jobs Values Test has been revealed as more and more hypocritical the closer we look.
It was recently revealed that the Trudeau government is funding an anti-pipeline summer job with the Dogwood organization, a job explicitly focused on blocking the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion Trudeau ‘claims’ he wants built.
And yet, at the same time as Justin Trudeau is funding anti-pipeline radicals (which he defends as a free speech issue), he is taking money away from organizations across the country, including a charity in Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre’s riding that provides free vacations to less fortunate families who otherwise couldn’t afford them.
Their Canada Summer Jobs funding was taken away by Justin Trudeau.
When Poilievre asked why Trudeau is funding anti-pipeline radicals while taking money away from groups helping the less fortunate, Trudeau actually insinuated that the organization in Poilievre’s riding was against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Watch the Poilievre vs Trudeau exchange below:
“Why is it that the Prime Minister is prepared to support funding for jobs for organizations that are taking away opportunities from Canadians, but not for those trying to help the less fortunate?” – Pierre Poilievre

Trudeau could have shown a real commitment to free speech if he supported funding for both the organization in Poilievre’s riding, and the Dogwood job. Or, he could have opposed funding for both. Either way, it would have been consistent.
But instead, he only supported the anti-pipeline radicals, while cutting off a group trying to help less fortunate families. Clearly, Trudeau feels entitled to decide who gets funding based on nothing more than his personal whims.
