Millions of Canadians would agree.
Alberta Opposition Leader Jason Kenney was recently quoted ripping into Justin Trudeau in a Calgary Sun column by Rick Bell.
Kenney didn’t hold back, and spoke for the frustrations of millions of Canadians.
Here’s some of what Kenney was quoted saying:
“I know Justin. He doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl.”
“He can’t read a briefing note longer than a cocktail napkin, OK.”
When asked about the comments, Kenney refused to back down:
“I worked with dozens of MPs in Ottawa, including (opposition) critics who were thoughtful, intelligent, engaged people with whom I had a constructive relationship. He wasn’t one of them.”
“(Trudeau) is a person that I worked with as a minister for three years who I got to know quite well as somebody who has difficulty with complex files, and I think (Trans Mountain) is a very complex issue.”
Kenney is 100% correct here.
All you need to do is look at Trudeau’s recent speech to New York University graduates, where he compared climate change ‘deniers’ to those who support female genital mutilation, and said people need to listen to those with a different point of view, even as he demonizes his critics and strips groups of funding for ideological reasons here at home.
Trudeau doesn’t connect the words he speaks with his actions, and often appears to be reading a script written by somebody else.
More people in leadership roles should start speaking the truth like Kenney, instead of pushing the false-civility that makes our politics even more fake and deceptive.
Millions of Canadians agree with what Kenney said, and the voices of those who oppose Trudeau need to be heard if our country is to be saved from disaster.
