Once again, Justin Trudeau divides Canadians for his selfish political gain.
I am the son of an immigrant. My father came to Canada from Trinidad when he was 14 years old. I am grateful for the fact that Canada is a welcoming nation, and I know that many immigrants, and the children of immigrants feel the same way. I remember the sense of pride my father felt when he became a Canadian citizen and officially joined the Canadian family.
With that said, there is a big difference between proclaiming that Canada belongs to all of nation’s citizens, and saying that Canada somehow belongs “more” to immigrants.
Unfortunately, that’s what Justin Trudeau said in an interview with CTV News.
Trudeau started off by saying he was “jealous” of immigrants who chose Canada:
“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,” said Trudeau.
Then, after referring to people he called “intolerant,” Trudeau made the statement that has angered many people. Speaking of immigrants, Trudeau said, “You chose this country. This is your country more than it is for others because we take it for granted.”
Trudeau’s comments were divisive, and insulting to the tens of millions of Canadians born in this country.
Had Trudeau said that Canada belongs to both those born in Canada and those who immigrated here, he would be on solid ground. Canada belongs to all Canadian citizens. But by going further, Trudeau is creating a deliberate divide, and is trying to elevate immigrants above Canadians born in this country.
Not only is it wrong for Trudeau to say Canada belongs more to some Canadian citizens than others, but it’s absurd for him to say those born in this country take it for granted. Would he say that to the face of Canadian-born soldiers who risk their lives for our country? Would he say it to police officers and firefighters who risk their lives to keep people safe? Would he say it to the millions of Canadians who work hard everyday and provide the taxes and production that keeps Canada going? Would he say that to those whose families have been in Canada for 50, 100, 150 years, and even longer?
Does he really think we all take this country for granted?
If so, his attitude is absolutely disgraceful.
Once again, we see Justin Trudeau dividing Canadians for his own selfish political gain. He wants more votes from immigrants, so he’s trying to divide those born in Canada and those born outside Canada, hoping the split goes his way. Yet, I think most Canadians, whether born here or not, are starting to see through Trudeau’s manipulative attitude.
Trying to divide us is the exact opposite of what a leader should be doing. Bringing Canada together requires focusing on what we have in common, not what separates us. A nation cannot be held together simply be repeating “diversity” over and over again as if it’s a magic incantation. Out of many people we seek to forge a strong and unified nation with security and prosperity for all, yet Trudeau is undermining that objective with his pathetic pandering political correctness.
If our country wants to be celebrating Canada 200 in 50 years, the scheme of separating and dividing Canadians must end. Nationalism, Patriotism, and Unity will be our strength, and we must defeat any leader who seeks to pit Canadians against each other just to win some votes.
The elites want to hide their many failures behind political correctness, deception, and manipulation. We need to push back and spread the truth.
That’s why I write.
