DIVISIVE: Trudeau Says Canada Belongs “More” To Immigrants

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.

Anybody interested in compiling and listing the idiotic comments and opinions expressed by this “beloved “PM?
Reminding people of such platitudes and such pure absurdities would be very useful for our next election.
We must not forget. and we must feel humble when talking about Trump. We have worse here in Canada. Only our problem is protected by the media paid with our taxpayers money.
Besides, Trump is never going to destroy his country. The dangerous one is Trudeau with his Communist Globalism.

Agree totally …there should be a legal tool for removing a senior politician from office when his / her behavior totally contradicts the public good or majority public opinion …. and that, BEFORE the designated term expires….It is difficult to find in history comments /actions from dignitaries that equate the absolute stupidity of this irresponsible lamebrain …and a stupidity that brings dire & long term consequences ..he is not ready and more than an issue of readiness , he will never fit …

In all fairness and I never voted him, but like his Dad he caters to specialty groups. When Pierre came out……. A lot of voters came out with him……Junior also has this vote and the fast track of immagrints, not to mention how he lied and conned the ones who believed that he had a mere shred of integrity. Professional student with no skills. Not even kayaking…… and with the money that he grew up with. Girly man me thinks.

Trudeau is carrying on a tradition begun by his father. Divide segments of the population, play one region against another, destroy the social and economic fabric of our country and squander our riches abroad to buy himself prestige on the world stage – and answer to his UN overlords. It does not matter that he may alienate Canadians, he will merely import more voters, buy their loyalty with our money, and change the rules to allow them to vote in the next federal election.

For many of us descendants from an ancestry of several hundred years, this kind of comment from Trudeau is rather strange. I am glad I was born here and not disappointed at all to not have had the choice. We never hear people say ” I hate that I was born in this country or that other country”. You are born where you are born and that’s a fact. If Trudeau’s comment is meant to be cute, that’s certainly the last thing that we expect a PM to be. To me his comment is empty of meaning and does not… Read more »

His speech writer was absent, I think. The full speech is idiotic , but showing attempts to manipulate the audience and make them believe how much he wants to make friends with new immigrants.
This man is full of confusing platitudes, which the inferior judgement of the media take as great expressions of intellectual grandeur.” That is because it is 2017 “, but this disaster started because it was 2015!!!! How can I be so profound?
Our PM ‘s philosophical high horse is no more than a stillborn donkey.

Since I was born here and thus I am not much of a Canadian, I demand that my taxes all be lowered considerably. I have paid full taxes for 50+ years. There are many immigrants coming now to Canada who don’t work nor pay taxes but they are more of a Canadian. Certainly glad you informed me of this status change, Trudeau. I await my huge tax rebate – EC has my address and bank account info.

We are a generous country, and because it is 2017, we do not have any money of our own but we can borrow , so we can buy our useful PM a seat in some international institution of great access to money and no accountability required. It will take generations of work to pay for the indulgence, but Justin will disappear for ever… We will keep Canada.

Yep! Definitely a “post turtle” – he is stuck high on the post and hasn’t a clue how to get down. It is not by accident that he is in a place of great power. The American press have dubbed him “the little Obama”, How right they are! And both are on George Soros’ payroll. Am really afraid of the damage our PM will inflict on Canada. His father dug a hole of debt, but his son will be worse because he doesn’t have Papa’s brains. His resume proves that: attended two universities but no degree; camp councillor; substitute-teacher.

So Justin admires those who currently choose to move to Canada?! But apparently does not admire the descendants of those who chose to move here over 150 years ago?! Why? Why are current immigrants forgiven the ‘sins’ of Canada’s history but the descendants of its founders are not?

I admired people moving to Canada that had the courage to venture to a new land. So I picked up sn went to live in a foreign country. It helped me to realize that Canadians are blessed to live inside a Big Bubble. Two big oceans east and west, frozen tundra to the north and the most powerful nation in the World attached to it on the south. Canadians have… Read more »

According to the early church “The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin. Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him. Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants’ duties toward… Read more »

I am insulted more than I can ever remember being insulted. Our Prime Minister has brought shame to his family name. We original, proud Canadians whose ancestors made this country great are the building blocks of our great nation. We ARE Canada. Do not ever forget that. Perhaps Mr. Trudeau should return to school for some history lessons or perhaps think before he opens his creative mouth.

It has taken many, many years to get here but it is being proven that multiculturalism has failed. It cannot succeed unless the ‘Host Countries’ values are being embraced. Where integration and assimilation are not expected and the politically correct left is on a path to destroy Canada and the ‘Judeo Christian’ values that made this country so great, and why people choose to immigrate here, by using the poisonous rhetoric of a vocabulary for imbeciles….inclusion, diversity, and tolerance. All words to constrict and silence the masses. Anyone with half a thought knows division is the end result of diversity.… Read more »

Trudeau is doing what Obama did to the US and divide the country using identity politicics.

Multi-Culturalism is used by liberals to divide us so that they can get more votes, it is not used to as they say to celebrate are differences, but to drive a wedge using their race, sex, or country of origin.

They approve of immigration legal or illegal as long as it is from a group they know will vote for them e.g. any country that is not a majority white nation. They love to keep the them poor so they are dependent on the Government.

Your diversity incantation comment was bang on! As a population we cannot keep chanting diversity like we are a cult. It has become a drinking game now every time a politician speaks I set my watch as to how long it takes for the “D” word to be mentioned. It has become nauseating and patronizing. “Nationalism, Patriotism, and Unity will be our strength”.
