Plurality wants a tougher approach.
Justin Trudeau is getting poor marks from Canadians for his handling of the ongoing fight with Communist China.
In the wake of the arrest of Meng Wanzhou, China arbitrarily detained two Canadian Citizens, and increased the sentence of another detained Canadian to the death penalty without even introducing any new evidence.
In the face of those escalations, the Trudeau government has refused to take strong action, such as banning Huawei and placing restrictions on money from China being used to buy Canadian real estate.
Instead, the government was embarrassed by useful idiot John McCallum spouting the China Commie line, and have showed continued weakness.
And Canadians aren’t happy.
According to a new Angus Reid poll, 52% of Canadians say the government has done a very poor or poor job, while just 33% say the government has done a good or very good job.
The intensity of opposition to Trudeau’s handling of the crisis is negative.
30% say the government has done a “very poor job,” compared to just 5% who say its done a “very good job.”
15% say they aren’t sure or can’t say.
The poll also shows a majority of Canadians saying that arresting Meng Wanzhou was the right thing to do, by a 55%-45% margin.
The plurality of Canadians also want a tougher approach.
44% say the government has “not been tough enough,” while 29% say their approach is “about right.” Just 5% say the government has been “too tough,” while 20% say they’re “not sure or can’t say.”
As I’ve said before, Trudeau’s approach of weakness in fact puts Canadians at more risk, because China is seeing that they can treat our citizens like garbage without consequences.
And now, Canadians appear to be waking up to how weak Trudeau really is on the world stage.
