On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement stroking his own ego projecting a so-called “successful” trip.
“The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today successfully concluded his trip to Brussels, Belgium. The Prime Minister addressed the European Parliament, and participated in an extraordinary North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Summit and a G7 Heads of State and Government Meeting,” the statement says.
After the prime minister delivered his speech to an almost empty EU Parliament he was heavily criticized by European politicians.
Further in the statement it said “On March 23, the Prime Minister addressed the European Parliament where he condemned President Putin’s war of choice and reaffirmed Canada’s steadfast commitment to Euro-Atlantic security, including by calling for further coordinated strong support for Ukraine in response to Russia’s aggression. He spoke of the need to continue working together to promote international peace and security and defend democracy. During his address, the Prime Minister highlighted the close partnership between Canada and the European Union based on our shared values.”
The prime minister‘s speech also included his famous divisive criticism of Canada’s Freedom Convoy organizers, calling them populists who preyed on Canadians’ anxieties.
“Even in Canada, where 90 percent of people are vaccinated, and our motto as a country ‘peace, order, and good government,’ we saw anti-vaccine and anti-government protest evolve into illegal occupations of our communities and blockades of our borders,” said Trudeau, who added that the leaders of the convoys were “effective in turning citizens with real anxieties against the system best suited to allay those concerns.”
When Justin Trudeau was done his speech EU politicians took time to boldly criticize him straight to his face, saying he was acting like a dictator.
MEP Christine Anderson of Germany told the prime minister that he was a “disgrace to any democracy.” Anderson criticized Trudeau for violating “democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.”
“A prime minister who openly admires the Chinese basic dictatorship, who tramples on human rights, by persecuting and criminalizing his own citizens as terrorists, because they dare stand up to his perverted concept of democracy, should not be allowed to speak in this House at all. Mr. Trudeau, you are a disgrace for any democracy, please spare us your presence,” said the MEP, to applause.
Mislav Kolakusic of Croatia accused Trudeau of operating “a dictatorship of the worst kind,” accusing him of figuratively trampling on Canadians’ liberties as well as practically having horses trample women during the Freedom Convoy rallies.
