If he doesn’t want to do the job when the going gets tough, he should quit.
As Canada deals with the shock and sorrow following the Toronto mass shooting attack (which is increasingly looking like it was a terrorist attack), Justin Trudeau is taking “personal days.”
He’s taken repeated “personal days,” skipping out on his job when national leadership is needed most.
“Personal” means “vacation”
While Canada is dealing with a horrible attack, Justin Trudeau is on vacation.
That was confirmed by reporter Laura Stone:
“I’ve asked PMO twice if
@JustinTrudeau will be visiting the #Danforth in the wake of the #TorontoShooting. The response is, “We’ll keep you posted.” Mr. Trudeau is currently in B.C. on vacation #cdnpoli“

Trudeau is sending the clear message that he doesn’t see the Toronto shooting as important enough to stop his vacation, come to Toronto, and make his presence felt.
This contrasts with his response to the ‘Hijab Hoax,’ where he dropped everything, made a statement on camera, turned the story into an international sensation, and demonized Canadians as “islamophobic.”
But when two Canadians are murdered and 13 more wounded in a horrible attack, Trudeau has almost nothing to say.
It is a pathetic failure of leadership.
If Trudeau doesn’t feel he can handle the tough parts of the job, then he should quit. Being PM is not about doing the job when there are fun photo-ops and virtue-signalling opportunities, it’s about doing the job when it’s hard, when there are grieving families to be comforted, scared citizens to be reassured, and threats to be addressed.
For Trudeau to still be on vacation during a crisis and a tragedy is disgraceful. Canadians deserve a real leader.
