It appears that Prime Minister Trudeau believes all women unless they are powerful, independent First Nations women. Despite providing compelling and credible testimony today, Jody Wilson-Raybould is not to be trusted or believed according to our nation’s leader. You can read our coverage of Jody Wilson-Raybould’s testimoney here.
The Prime Minister took centre stage today at 8 PM to categorically deny the allegations put forward by Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Just like the case of groping allegations against Justin Trudeau which resurfaced earlier this year, we are expected to once again just believe the PM. Even as he states that he has not made up his mind on whether Jody Wilson-Raybould can remain a part of the Liberal caucus.
In effect potentially pushing her out of the party for speaking her truth and sharing her lived experience. All of this has happened, of course, after already effectively pushing her out of her Attorney General role because she dared to say “no.”
This is becoming a rather interesting format of hypocritical and repeating politics, as the Prime Minister has stated in every other case that he believes all women.
This is perhaps why this scandal so effectively exposes the hypocrisy at the core of the Trudeau brand, as he is forced to take a position that contradicts his so-called “progressive” values.
While most level headed Canadians including the Conservative party leader, seem to agree that it is time for the Trudeau to step down or take serious action, he insists that we take his word over the word of a brave First Nations woman who is speaking truth to his power.
