Like father, like son, goes the old adage. It’s rarely been truer than in the case of former prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and son Justin. Pierre was once asked for his views on democracy and communism, and stated that a one-party state would be the ideal government under certain conditions. That should sound familiar.
Added Pierre: “I wouldn’t be prepared to think I would be successful in arguing that communism is right for Canada at the present time. But such times might come, who knows?”
Five decades later, here’s his son, Justin Trudeau: “You know, there’s a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.”
Case closed. Okay, not so much. The case should be closed– but it isn’t. In fact, it has yet to be opened to the extent that the people of Canada develop an awareness of what the family of Pierre Trudeau are really all about.
The reason for this is found in the monolithic approach to Canadian society and history by way of mainstream Canadian media. Canadians have little awareness of where Canada is heading as a result of the socialist political tag-team of Pierre & Justin Trudeau.
The simple truth is that all signs point to a comprehensive dedication of the Trudeau family toward non-democratic forms of government. Yet, at this point in history, the Trudeau family have escaped being branded as communist sympathizers and admirers of despotic leaders.
This has to change. The Trudeau family are a nemesis regarding traditional Canadian society, identity and culture. No statues, airports or graven images of Justin or Pierre should adorn any public exhibit in Canada.
“The reason for direct economic power is China’s command-and-control economy, wherein the government owns or controls the vast majority of businesses.”
“For Trudeau the elder and Trudeau the younger, admiration of communism is seen in actions that diminish private-sector investment in favour of public spending, along with social policies that discourage or prohibit ways of thinking not aligned with their ‘progressive’ beliefs.”
By the time Pierre Trudeau retired in 1984, national debt had grown by 700 per cent, and Canada’s international debt rating had collapsed.
Five decades later, son Justin has Canada on a similar path. After inheriting the Stephen Harper government’s zero-deficit balance sheet, Canada’s fiscal deficit in rocketed to $18 billion in 2017-2018, with continuing deficits forecast to add $117 billion to the national debt by 2023.
That’s reason enough to worry, but the picture is certain to get much worse. Why? For the same reason that Pierre Trudeau’s deficits spiralled out of control: the imposition of ideologically socialist government policies on a capitalist free-market economy.
Bingo. End of story. But it won’t be. For as long as Justin Trudeau remains in power, the fundamentals of political policy will not change. The written-in-stone ethos that powers Liberal Party governance is akin to a fundamentalist religion. While the world changes all around it, Canada’s so-called “progressive” federal government function as the High Priests of a globalist political cult.
