So, as the "fourth wave" of Covid crashes on the shores of Canada, as our state-floated economy teeters precariously on the edge of a monstrous inflationary bubble, as our sacrifice in Afghanistan is discarded on the winds of expediency, we enter an unwanted federal election. Make no mistake, the Trudeau Liberals are desperately trying to snatch a majority government and the question is why now?
Well, in one way, why not now? After all, a minority government never lasts a full term and this one has been going for awhile now. Trudeau is also rightly saying he wants a majority to steer the country through the upcoming days. Yet, most Canadians seem to be stumbling around in a Covid brain fog, afraid of being too close to their fellow peeps, and absolutely terrified of what has become known in CBC land as "the unvaccinated" (It's time to get rid of the CBC - its well outlived its glory years of Barbara Frum and Knolton Nash). The truth is that Canadians right now, like many other peoples in the world, are running around scared of their own shadow and uncertain where the world is heading.
The printing of money over the last two years in Canada and other nations has resulted in governments replacing the free market to inject roughly equal levels of lost GDP into the world economies. Inflation, which has ballooned the stock market beyond any rationality, is crushing people when buying anything from gas to groceries. Supply chains have been literally destroyed and the "just in time" economy has been brought to its knees. Tankers waiting for goods to haul have been stranded, with their crews, in many case for well over a year at sea. Things are not hunky dory.
So with that background Trudeau decides the polls are ripe for a majority government. Interestingly, the Nova Scotia Liberal government thought the same, and was just unceremoniously swept from power. It wasn't that per se that likely numbed the Libs, but the fact that such a result federally in the Maritimes spells the denial of a majority government and potentially an outright defeat.
The truth is Justin Trudeau is not Pierre Trudeau - other than their common love of massive spending and debt. Justin Trudeau has always been a snobby virtue signaler who famously corrected a woman for referring to "mankind" when he said she should say "people kind". After being roundly humiliated throughout the world he quickly said it was all a joke, but we know it wasn't. We also know Trudeau likes to refer to Canada as the first "post-national state". In other words, we have outlived our worth as a nation in less than 154 years - surely a record for any country in history... Not coincidentally, Trudeau has wrapped himself around all movements that undermine or intend to undermine our sovereignty - both as a people and a nation.
For example, Trudeau, like his dyed in the wool cousin Biden, has declared all federal civil servants must be vaccinated. He has previously said he intends to extend that to all federally regulated businesses. By doing so he fundamentally breeches the Charter of Rights and Freedoms that his father so desperately fought for. He throws individual rights into the trash can in the name of collective rights. Its the kind of thinking that resulted in Japanese-Canadians being thrown into concentration camps in Canada during World War II. It also resulted in former PM Brian Mulroney doing away with the War Measures Act so individual Canadians would no longer be subjected to the panic of the majority. Sound familiar? They thought they had good reasons back then to protect Canadians too... Should this issue land on the steps of the Supreme Court of Canada it likely won't survive long, but how many will have had their rights violated before that happens?
Then their is Trudeaus love for guys like Bill Gates, and the fellows down at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. These guys advocate world government by 2030. They infamously stated that by 2030 you will "own nothing and be happy". They also advocate for a merging of peoples physical entity with technology - yep cyborgs. If it weren't true and happening we would shake our heads at the "conspiratorial nature" of it. From their website, it only takes a few seconds to watch: World Economic Forum Video
