Welcome to election year 2019 in Canada. Be prepared to hear a lot of hooey, i.e. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (et al) telling people what he thinks they want to hear, depending on the situation at hand. During a town hall on Thursday, a man was pressing the Prime Minister about his open-door immigration policies. The man further stated that “Christianity and Islam don’t mix.” This was Trudeau’s startling reply:
Trudeau then tried to calm the crowd, saying, “democracy only works in a country like Canada if people are free to express their fears, their concerns, their opinions, and we get an opportunity to respond to them.”
Double take! Did Trudeau just advocate for free speech? Free speech? When Canada is under siege over anti-Islamophobia Motion M-103?
