Trudeau spurns NDP votes he once courted

In a show that ran last Sunday, “Neil from London” was among the ten “ordinary Canadians” the CBC picked to chat with Prime Minister Trudeau. Among his questions: do you agree the minimum wage should go up?

If you watched the Liberals’ last campaign, you’d expect Trudeau to quickly say yes. Trudeau supported an NDP plan to boost the federal minimum wage to $15, but criticised it for not covering enough people.

But this week, when Neil from London asked about it, Trudeau dodged.

    Good posted essay. The problem is that Trudeau cannot mentally follow economic issues, except by reading simple talking points. And when asked a spontanious question, Trudeau reverts to “eonobabble”, where he spouts mindless catch phrases, which sound like something meaningful is said, but actually make little sense.

    The second problem is that the national corporate media (e.g. CBC News), as corrupt paid-and-bought-for media, purposely look the other way as to Trudeau’s deceptions. Writers like the author of this Sun article are good, but too few Canadians read the Sun. Corruption rules. .

    Well now that Mohammad Trudeau has blown billions of dollars on whiny indians, left wing global warming scams, etc., he has decided today to spend billions on his muslim friends in the Middle East. Hey, its not his money.

    Trudeau got elected with NDP votes. Now he is going for the Progressive Conservative votes.

    His detestable old man used to lie like a sidewalk during election campaigns too. Junior clearly learned well at Daddy’s knee. His old man used to get regular blow jobs from the MSM too.

    A $15/hr minimum is “right for Canada”?

    Only if you agree that Canadians are the most hopelessly naive people on the planet.
