The Ford government also cut three English language universities. Why aren’t the virtue-signalling politicians in Ottawa complaining about that?
In the wake of the out-of-touch elites going crazy over some spending cuts in Ontario – which are necessary cuts since the province is facing a massive budget deficit left over by the Liberals – the virtue-signalling politicians in Ottawa tried to pass a motion condemning Doug Ford’s decision to cut the Francophone University and make changes to the French language commissioner.
They wanted unanimous consent for the motion, meaning it would have passed without opposition and somehow be spun as representing the will of Parliament.
But, instead of going along with the absurd virtue-signalling, Conservative MP Brad Trost blocked it, denying unanimous consent for it.
“Brad Trost denies unanimous consent for a motion to denounce Doug Ford’s cuts to French language commissioner and French university.”

It’s unfortunate that any MPs – including any Conservatives – were willing to go along with the virtue-signalling motion in the first place.
Why didn’t they condemn the cuts to English language universities in Ontario?
Why didn’t they criticize Quebec for the restrictions placed on English in that province?
And why didn’t they pass a unanimous motion condemning the foreign money coming into the country in an effort to destroy the Canadian energy industry?
The double-standard is outrageous, and it’s good that at least one MP was willing to stand up against it.
