‘Groping’ affair shows how Trudeau’s overbearing moralizing undermines public debate

It would perhaps be an understatement to say that the Justin Trudeau groping incident has highlighted the dangers of building a political brand based on excessive moralizing.

For that is the real lesson behind this mini-scandal. What should anger everyone – regardless of political affiliation – is the cynical and domineering weaponization of morality by the Trudeau government. It is a type of political warfare which, until now, the federal Liberals seemed to have perfected like no other party.
