Trudeau plays dangerous game of identity politics


Here is our Prime Minister’s latest unscripted verbal eruption:

“Anytime I meet people who got to make the deliberate choice, whose parents chose Canada, I’m jealous. Because I think being able to choose it, rather than being Canadian by default, is an amazing statement of attachment to Canada … This is your country more than it is for others because we take it for granted.”

Justin Trudeau’s defenders may claim he was merely extending a compliment to immigrants on our 150th anniversary.

But it is impossible to ignore his plain words, especially because they are part of a pattern.
