Canada has never been weaker on the world stage than we are under the Freeland-Trudeau ‘foreign policy.’
In June of 2018, Chrystia Freeland won the ‘Diplomat of the Year Award,’ given out by Foreign Policy magazine.
During the speech accepting the award, she delivered a thinly-veiled condemnation of the Trump Administration, and repeated all the same talking points favoured by the globalist elites.
And this is why she won the award in the first place.
The globalists generally give out awards like this to each other, and the awards aren’t about actual performance or merit.
They’re about a willingness to keep pushing the existing order, even when that order has led to a betrayal of the middle class and working class people across the western world, including in Canada.
And Freeland, along with Trudeau, have always been glad to oblige.
But when it comes to actual results, it’s obvious that Freeland & Trudeau have been a total failure when it comes to foreign policy.
Our relations with the US are at a new low, and Freeland & Trudeau blew a chance to get a quick NAFTA deal with the US when the Trump Admin was focused on Mexico. Now, Mexico and the US are now close to a deal while we remain on the sidelines.
For three years, Trudeau government has been trying to get Raif Badawi freed, yet failed to use any potential leverage such as the weapons sales or oil import restrictions. Then, Freeland’s tweet set back those efforts substantially. And as if that wasn’t enough, the government responded with total weakness after relations with the Saudis deteriorated, sending the message that countries can say and do whatever they want to Canada and we won’t even push back.
Trudeau’s India trip was a disaster, while the government has tried to get closer to China, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, and other countries as our relations with our top allies crumble.
Yet, the things that the government could have done to mitigate the damage of weakening foreign relations such as building up our military and ending our reliance on foreign oil, have not been done at all. Our armed forces are still getting underfunded and being forced to use substandard equipment, while the carbon tax and excessive regulations make us more dependent on foreign countries than ever before.
So, under the Freeland-Trudeau foreign policy, Canada is weaker and more isolated than ever before.
Freeland certainly deserves an award, but it would be far more appropriate if it was titled “worst diplomat,” which would be an accurate reflection of her true performance.
