Justin Trudeau Childishly Calls Separatists Childish

Ok who had 6 days in the pool?



Those of us who were nervous about Justin’s candidacy expressed concern that he sometimes had his father’s arrogance when in his home province, it is no longer welcome.

For those not following the news, the PQ declared war on the Bloc yesterday, and the separatist movement is facing some very difficult challenges. The last thing we Liberals want to do is rouse the distracted giant. Let the separatists defeat themselves.

I don’t know about you guys, but if any party has been whining about how they have been treated the past little while, it’s us. I know, that is unfair…

The provinces, including Quebec, (especially Quebec) have been complaining. Provinces do that. The past four years it was a federalist government in power complaining too. So you know what Justin, complaining that your opponents are complainers isn’t really gonna sit well. Yes the temporary ad hoc rainbow coalition have bitched and not delivered. If that coalition disintegrates, we are not in a good position to recuperate that vote.

Calling separatism mythology is a little much. Saying there is mythology surrounding the separatist movement is fair. In fact there was some separatist mythology taking place this week being perpetuated by Liberals including Justin’s riding neighbour Denis Coderre. The media follows Trudeau everywhere. Every time Justin makes an interesting remark, Stephane Dion will be asked if he agrees.

Let’s not forget Dion voted for the mythology in 1980.

Was the 49.5% Yes vote in 1995 mythical? Was it was a big blue one-legged unicorn called Lucien?

Justin, let’s not give the separatists a common cause in Papineau, next time, say something logical, attack separatist arguments, just don’t insult the people who voted for them in the riding you seek to represent.

I haven't been a fan of Justin Trudeau so far, but if he keeps speaking truth to nationalism like this, he can count me among his supporters. While the movement for Quebec independence is no myth, much of its own narrative, the stories that separatists tell each other, are myths built on sand.

Finally, a prominent politician willing to speak up for hardline federalists! Who ever thought that would be a rarity in Canadian politics?

Nothing wrong with that part of his speech. You're missing the real mistake.... telling NB they should have only one school system. Shows he doesn't quite fully understand the Charter.

The single school system comment is troubling.

He needs to be educated on that before he addresses the Canadian School Boards Association in July.

That photo.

It seems like I've seen it somewhere before only slightly different.

It just seems so familiar.

I don't know why.

Well, if it comes to me, I'll let you know.

Antonio, why don't you start supporting your party rather than kick and scream every time there's something you deem scandalous with the party. Frankly, I think your time and energy would be better spent supporting the NDP.
