Category Archives: Justin Trudeau Mocked On World Stage

In Canada, the term ‘nationalism’ doesn’t seem to have a bad rap. Here’s why.

On a historic Remembrance Day, a century after the end of the First World War, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a Paris crowd that decaying trust in public institutions will lead citizens to look for easy answers “in populism, in nationalism, in closing borders, in shutting down trade, in xenophobia.”

The implication was clear: if nations turn in on themselves and treat outsiders as threats, we might again find ourselves in a bloody conflict with fronts all over the world.

Attacks on the media are a threat to democracy, Trudeau says

Trudeau was deliberately posed on the far left (ha!) so he can be cropped out easily.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a press freedom event in Paris Sunday that one of the bulwarks protecting democratic governments from being undermined is also an institution under stress — a free-thinking, robust media.

Canada’s feminist foreign aid policy isn’t making much progress on a gender equal world

When Canadians saw photos of Justin Trudeau holding a baby during a 2017 visit to the Philippines, many saw a clichéd photo-op. Others saw a symbol of Ottawa’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy.
