‘People do not have the right to block streets illegally, to harass their fellow citizens, people who want to go to work, they want to go to school.’
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau delivered a speech in the House of Commons on Monday, condemning citizens engaging in the anti-Covid lockdown trucker convoy protests.
Nearly every sentence to come out of Trudeau’s mouth reeked of hypocrisy and dishonesty.
The second-generation Canadian Prime Minister gaslit his constituents, telling them, “People do not have the right to block streets illegally, to harass their fellow citizens, people who want to go to work, they want to go to school.”View this post on Instagram
“They don’t have the right to insult those who choose to wear a mask, to get vaccinated, to be there for their fellow citizens,” Trudeau said, before claiming demonstrators are “trying to blockade our economy, our democracy and our fellow citizens’ daily lives. It has to stop.”
Of course, in 2020, Trudeau took a knee alongside Black Lives Matter protesters who blocked roads in Ottawa, ended up smashing store windows, setting fires and physically assaulting police.
When it comes to “harassing citizens who want to go to work and want to go to school,” there may be no bigger participant than Trudeau himself.
What else do you call it when you stop citizens from working or attending school because they won’t get vaccinated or wear a mask?
Trudeau, who has called the protesters “racist” and “misogynistic” extremists, says not to insult citizens for choosing to wear a mask.
Meanwhile, the Canadian prime minister and other leftists have spent the last two years harassing and insulting those who don’t comply with mask mandates.
Of course, Trudeau’s claim that the demonstrators want to “blockade our economy, our democracy and our fellow citizens’ daily lives,” is totally laughable considering his government has placed the nation under strict Covid lockdowns destroying small businesses and disrupting citizens’ daily lives.
During another part of his speech, Trudeau said when it comes to policing the trucker protest, “The federal government will be there, with whatever resources the province [Ontario] and the city [Ottawa] need.”
The Prime Minister’s call for a larger law enforcement presence in Ottawa aligns with a warning call put out Monday by a concerned Canadian who claims riot police are set to clear out the protests and arrest everyone involved before Friday.
Thankfully, several Canadian politicians stood up to Trudeau on Monday.
Conservative Party leader Candice Bergen said, “Mr. Speaker, Canadians are telling the Prime Minister they want to get back to work, they want to get back to normal life. That’s why we’re seeing demonstrations, not only in Ottawa, but right across the country.”
Trudeau has “caused division by overtly politicizing vaccines and the pandemic and calling these Canadians names,” she continued. “And now, he’s saying these protests really aren’t his problem, they’re the province’s or maybe even the city’s. When will the prime minister stop hiding, show up for Canadians, show some leadership and fix the mess he’s created?”
Bergen’s fellow politicians erupted with cheers after her brief statement.

Conservative MP Raquel Dancho slammed Trudeau for repeatedly saying, “Diversity is our strength,” while “othering” those who disagree with him.
Dancho also criticized the prime minister for telling Canadians Covid vaccines would be optional when he ran for office, saying, “Within days of calling that election, he was yelling into a microphone that ‘you have the right to not get vaccinated but you don’t have the right to sit next to someone who is.’”
She continued, “We are one of the most vaccinated countries in the world, and this government continues to use that as a bludgeon to get people to submit to their policies.”
Even a Liberal Party MP Joël Lightbound condemned Trudeau’s demonization of the protesters as racists, saying, “I have enough respect for my fellow Canadians not to engage in these easy and absurd labels.” View this post on Instagram
The Babylon Bee accurately joked that Trudeau is demanding the protesters stop shutting down the city so he can go back to shutting it down.
