French Canadians are still reeling from a video of Justin Trudeau streamed live on social media last Thursday, August 16th. The Prime Minister’s fit of anger was directed at senior citizen in Saint-Jean sur le Richelieu.
At the time of this writing, Trudeau’s bizarre response has been shared over 5,400 times and viewed a whopping 200,000 times on Facebook, in addition to those copies viewed on other platforms.
Don’t embarrass the Right Honourable… or else
Mr. Trudeau was giving a speech about the Guaranteed Income Supplement and how much more money certain senior citizens should be receiving, thanks to his government.
A woman in the crowd had more pressing preoccupations than a few hundred dollars however, as she asked:
“When does Ottawa plan to reimburse the $146 million dollars that Québec spent on Canada’s illegal migrants?”
Upon this interruption, the representative of the constituency of Papineau lectured that in politics, we have to learn to listen. She wasn’t listening to him.
The uppity senior repeated her question. Then Justin Trudeau lost all control, screaming at the lady hysterically.
After a seemingly endless tirade by the feminist Prime Minister, the poor woman was physically and apparently painfully grabbed by a man in civilian clothing who did not first identify himself as an undercover peace officer.
She complained he was hurting her arm. A bystander chided he had no right to manhandle the woman. Only then did the police offer ID numbers.
Canada may be glorious, but apparently its citizens are not free to ask certain questions.
Context: the migrant crisis is real, it costs real money, and it bothers real people
Canada is (still) suffering from a migrant crisis abundantly covered by The Post Millennial. Most of the recent “irregular refugees” have jumped the border illegally at Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Québec. The province has been obliged to provide these illegal aliens a variety of services, such as lodging and health care.
Last spring, the Liberal government in Québec was exasperated it had to pay for the irresponsible management of the Liberal government in Ottawa.
Costs spiraled so fast that Québec sent a $146 million bill to the federal government for these migrant asylum seekers.
Discussions ensued, and in June the federal government pledged $50 million to be split between Québec, Ontario and Manitoba.
Québecers have not swallowed this pill – especially after four years of rather brutal cuts in services by the provincial government – and their frustration was expressed by this lady’s simple question.
To a fair question, a crazy and undignified reply
On the form: when exhibiting such behavior, Justin Trudeau shows he is not worthy of the office of Prime Minister.
On the content: the lady’s question had nothing to do with racism, she therefore did not deserve a sermon on tolerance.
Notwithstanding the question, I believe the woman asking it did not merit a public lynching by the head of our government.
Honestly, how could the Prime Minister scream at a Canadian citizen that she has no place in Canada, when she’s asking about the costs of illegal migrants?
All she wanted to know was when Ottawa would reimburse Québec its costs for managing Trudeau’s failed immigration policy and lax border controls.
I think this lady asked a fair question. What do you think? Please share and comment below.
