I'll give him credit. Justin Trudeau did surface in Victoria albeit at a $300 a head seat at a party fundraiser, safely removed from those unfortunate protesters outside the venue.
It was classic Trudeau - all patronizing and just a little bit greasy.
Trudeau, sitting on a stage answering scripted questions for about 30 minutes, said there are many people in total agreement with Liberal government’s protection of oceans, banning plastics, moving forward with partnerships with Indigenous Peoples to better protect coastlines, putting a price on pollution, and reaching targets for protecting marine areas.
“These things are all great,” said Trudeau. “But they can’t get over the fact that we had to buy a pipeline to get a decent price for our resources to pay for the transition we all need to go through because we are still all reliant on fossil fuels for the next few years at the very least, most likely the next few decades."We had to buy a pipeline"? Trudeau is a devout neoliberal, a disciple of globalism. Why did we have to buy the pipeline? Why were the markets he so believes in, the private sector, so unwilling to buy the damned thing?
Then came the Dauphin's straw man - we can't choose between the environment and the economy. In other words we're so bereft of ideas that we can't see that the urgency of our climate emergency that most Canadians are sharing in this weekend demands that we can't wait, we have to shift to a clean energy economy now, not 'eventually' which is what he's proposing.
Trudeau said dealing with climate change can’t be a choice between the environment and the economy and that the only way to have a plan for the economy is to have a plan to fight climate change and protect the environment.Then came the classic Trudeau smarm. He's just greasy.
“Not everyone gets to live on Vancouver Island where you have a green conscience that the rest of the country can learn from and needs to learn from.”
Trudeau quipped he was sort of flattered by the protesters holding inflatable whales outside “because I heard those same orcas were out there for [Green Party Leader] Elizabeth May’s wedding a few months ago.”
Pulling the country together is the federal government’s job, said Trudeau.
“That means making concessions that some people will disagree with and taking steps others won’t be happy with but all aligned with a big picture of saying we are on a path that will create a better future for our kids and grandkids.”The last thing Justin has on his mind is the future of our grandkids.
The fake town hall, answering scripted questions. I believe it was Sting who said something like 'they all seem like game-show hosts to me'.
.. going to roll with Stu's observation..
Justin was down in Andrew Scheer's, even Harper level there..
That's just mealy smarm.. pretend 'folksy' ..
Was he wearing a 'Canada' hoodie ?
I agree with Justin for once. I for one am sick of the richest, whitest, most privileged Canadians living in the most beautiful part of our country telling the rest of us how to live.
Not everyone has the money to buy 10 acres of land and build a million dollar self-sustaining treehouse with solar panels and the works. Some of us have to take the congested subway to work and compete with millions of newly arrived immigrants for a 1600$ a month closet in the sky.
I'd love to sit on my ass, smoke weed and eat granola all day. Listen to the birds chirp and bitch about pipelines...
Well, Anon, your opinion is as worthless as your understanding of this island and the people who live here. We're not the sort you, in your fulsome ignorance, depict.
Cliches are us. Try the real world. We want to protect what we have and what we leave to others. Not rape and pillage the land, for short term profit for the wealthy, then sit back, when all is lost and say, "Who could see this coming". We pay as high rent in Victoria as you do in Vancouver. The people driving up the real estate prices are retired people who move here with their money. Oh and their medical problems from aging, that we get to pay for! So try eating bitumen.
You're exactly as I depict you spoiled sanctimonious boomers. I hope the Chinese colonize your island and chop down every last tree to send back across the Pacific.

Don't give this troll the attention he craves. His remarks are utterly puerile (hey, Anon, Google "puerile") and intended only to provoke.
