Virtue-signalling always takes precedence for the Trudeau Liberals.
As I recently reported, just as NAFTA negotiations were starting up again, Chrystia Freeland was the headliner of an event called “Taking on the Tyrant.”
And at the event, the “Tyrant” was very clearly a category that included Donald Trump. In fact, Trump was prominently featured in a video and in photos at the event, leaving zero doubt that he was being put into the ‘tyrant’ category.
Obviously, from a logical and objective point of view, having Freeland at that event was incredibly dumb as tense negotiations are taking place:
“The Trudeau government has sent the clearest possible signal that they could care less about our auto industry and economy being devastated. They see a chance to score some domestic political points by jumping onto the elitist virtue-signalling.”
And of course, Justin Trudeau is just fine with that. As noted by iPolitics, here’s what Trudeau said about it:
“Canadians expect their government and their representatives to stand up clearly for Canadian values and defend Canadians’ interests,” Trudeau said.
“It needs to be crystal clear to Canadians that we will always be there to defend our values and defend our interests and that’s exactly what Chrystia is doing around the negotiating table and in her work as foreign affairs minister.”
It’s an absolutely pathetic response. Freeland wasn’t there standing up for Canadians. She was there standing up for the globalists, and for Trudeau’s electoral hopes. And if that screws over Canadians, that’s totally acceptable collateral damage in Trudeau’s mind.
