Ignoring The Majority Of Canadians, Trudeau Moving Closer To Challenging Bill 62

Despite the clear majority of Canadians in every province supporting Bill 62, Trudeau and the elites continue to impose their politically-correct agenda.

Justin Trudeau is moving closer to federal involvement in Quebec’s Bill 62.

Asked about the issue in Vietnam, Trudeau said “We’re looking at Bill 62 carefully, we’re listening to the questions being asked about it and we’re in the process of studying, internally, the different processes we could initiate or with whom we could join. But we will continue to reflect and to work on it.”

Added Trudeau, “I think I’ve been very clear that I don’t think a government should be legislating what a woman should or shouldn’t be wearing. I don’t think that’s something that is right for Canada. I will always defend the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and as for next steps, we’re watching the situation as it unfolds and reflecting on what those steps might or could be.”

This is Trudeau’s elitist arrogance on display, as he is ignoring the overwhelming political will of the Canadian people.

Numerous polls have showed that the vast majority of Canadians in every province support Bill 62, and in Quebec, some polls have shown over 80% in favour.

Democracy is about translating the views of the people into policy, and Bill 62 is a clear example of democracy at work.

By ignoring that truth, and by pushing his own elitist political correctness on Canadians, Trudeau shows that he has contempt for the views of most Canadians, and has no real commitment to democracy.

Every elitist who refuses to respect what the people want must be defeated, because a clear message needs to be sent that ignoring the will of Canadians will not be allowed.

  1. Quebec can use the notwithstanding clause to override any federal interference in Quebec governance, something the rest of Canada cannot do.

  2. Trueau’s brain, Gerald Butts, is playing this issue very well. The LPC has 30% of the vote permanently, and need just another 8% to win a majority government. The 30% don’t support Bill C-62,so Trudeau has to walk a fine line between them and the Rest of Canadian voters, who, West of Ontario, don’t count for much in LPC eyes.

    Scheer is being handed several big time issues, from Morneau and the tax evasions of the “0ne percenters,to Trudeau’s let down of the Veterans, to Bill C-62, to the promise of electoral change, and still, according to all the polls,the LPC leads with 37%,the CPC has 30%,and Andrew Scheer isn’t igniting the passions of the conservatives who left the Party in 2-14-2015 due to Harper’s inactivity of the main issues.

    The CPC appears to be falling into the trap of believing if Trueau makes enough gaffes,the people will automatically turn to the CPC, simply not true,just wishful thinking.

    If an election was held tomorrow,I can see a Liberal minority,with about 150 seats,the CPC with about 100, the Block gaining significantly to possibly 20 seats in Quebec,and the rest NDP. This would of course mean an NDP/Liberal coalition.

    We have four byelections coming up in December, this should give us an indication of voter satisfaction with the government. The byelections are scattered across the Country,in Newfoundland, B.C.,Saskatchewan,and Ontario.

    If the CPC can show some promise in these, maybe there is hope for 2019,but so far, Scheer is underwhelming the CPC constituency, despite all the ammunition he’s being given.

  3. So many Conservative Bills are being attacked and changed by the Liberal Government. From M-103 to other bills up for change by the Liberals, Canadians seem to be totally ignorant or show no interest. They will take notice but by then it will be to late especially if the Liberals win another majority government in 2019. I am truly angered by the complacent Canadian’s in not knowing what is happening, or not wanting to discuss the potential lose of freedoms. You only have to look to Europe and the U.K. to see the chaos with their refugee problems. Trouble is that no one watches the news, reads a newspaper, or is interested in current events. Our society has succumbed to TV Reality shows, Sports, and TV Series. We have disappeared into our own little world’s. Truly sad to see 150 years of Confederation slowly disappear before our eyes and no one is even willing to notice it.

  4. Disagree, when it comes to fundamental rights and the charter public opinion is irrelevant. The tyranny of the majority can never trample on the rights of a minority no matter how popular. Otherwise if Bill 62 complies with the Charter it can go ahead, but if it doesn’t, it must be struck down or repealed irrespective of public opinion. There have been far too many cases where the majority favour violating rights of others which is why liberal democracies protect people’s rights whether popular or not.

    I think governments must be mindful of public opinion, but sometimes unpopular decisions need to be made like spending cuts to balance the budget, GST under Mulroney so governments should not just follow the polls. Instead do what they think is best for the country and voters will judge at the next election. But on rights that is one area where public opinion should never be considered, all that matters is does it violate the charter or not. If it does public opinion is irrelevant whereas if it doesn’t then it matters.

  5. Every country has put a ban on face covering due to the amount of crimes committed with such I think Canada should be no different

  6. Miles Lunn is way off on several points. “when it comes to fundamental rights and the charter public opinion is irrelevant” This quote sounds like something out of a socialist playbook, who cares what they want we know what’s best for them. The public and their opinion is what shapes the fabric of the country and it is very important. We elected the politicians to run things on our behalf, not reshape the country into their own twisted view of reality. When the majority of the whole country let alone a province says we favor a face covering ban not just for women but for anyone protesting and/or causing trouble then that is called the will of the people and they should take serious note. Keep in mind that all face coverings of any sort are 100% political, there is ZERO religious aspect to any face coverings for any reason.
    “The tyranny of the majority can never trample on the rights of a minority no matter how popular” I didn’t know there was that much tyranny in Canada but by this rational the minority of child molesters in this country should be able to do whatever they want, god forbid we trample their rights.
    As far as the rest, I wish this present government had any idea at all about making tough decisions and doing the right thing instead of morally and financially bankrupting all of us and this fine nation. A Minister not once but twice lying about actually riding bicycles somewhere for some silly reason and then lying about how we will magically heat and light our hoses with unreliable energy for cheaper in the future. How about our illustrious gov’t spending 1/2 a million wrapping a stupid building in Ottawa or let’s build a rink for a month for a cool million just for the heck of it. But, best of all, let’s let in all the illegals from the States that would surely get deported for various reasons from there if they got caught, everything will be just fine in fantasyland……….just wait, it will not. These are not the people and decision makers I really want shaping the future of our country. Our leader who cozies up to communist China and will give this country away instead of making a new trade deal with the U.S. will ultimately destroy everything we hold dear.

    1. I hope that Andrew Scheer and the Conservative Party take a Stand and agree with the MAJORITY of Quebec Citizens, who are in Agreement in Passing Bill 62. The Majority of Canadians across the Country want this Bill passed NOT ONLY in Quebec, but across the Country. True, Passionate, Hard Working Canadians are in Favour of Bill 62. Quebec is very Fortunate to be able to use the “Notwithstanding Clause”, and Should use this Clause. NO Government should EVER go against the Wishes of the MAJORITY of Canadians. But then again, how can Any Intelligent Citizen Vote against a Bill that Supports Safety, Canadian Values, and is against Backward, Barbaric Stone Age Ideologies. We are NOT in Saudi Arabia. We are in Canada and want Canada to Remain Canadian!

    2. The Charter of rights and freedoms is the supreme law of the land and nothing socialistic about it, if anything it is libertarians not socialists who favour strong checks and balances. As such governments are obliged to follow the Charter whether popular or not. The charter can be overridden using section 33, but only Quebec can do this and most polls show Canadians generally support the charter. In 2004, the Tories lost the election due to talk of using the notwithstanding clause and even if done must be renewed every five years.

      Also saying it is elitist is silly. Slavery was supported by most in the South during the Civil War, most Germans supported anti-Semitic laws by Hitler, but just because they were popular doesn’t make them morally right. While wearing the niqab is not comparable to either, the point of a Charter is you don’t get to pick and chose which rights you want and which you don’t, you either have a charter and always follow it or you don’t have one and while I agree there is no party on the horizon who would act unreasonably no one can forsee what will happen in 20 or 30 years thus why its important to have constitutional protections. And note conservatives benefit from it too, after all more Canadians are left wing than right wing yet thanks to the Charter no politician can ban people promoting conservative ideas or ban conservative parties.

      I agree the current government has not made tough and unpopular decisions and I was more referring to past ones that have like the Mulroney government on GST.

  7. The present government is so elitist and full of themselves that you know, as does a large number of Canadians that logic, practicality, reasonableness, competence, understanding or any other wording simply is impossible once one’s mind is so full of themselves. That one reality is what the Liberals have over and above any other party — notwithstanding it is also a failure all to often of every political party.

    The Liberals, though, have taken this to new heights — ignoring anything and everything that might well benefit Canada and implementing, unquestionably, all of Trudeau’s so-called benefits for Canadians.

    Once he declared our borders were open, that, in an of itself, was an act of treason. Any such decision, before it was implemented, had to be agreed upon by all parties (notwithstanding the public) prior to his announcement. A country without borders is not and cannot be a country and he knows that.

    So, I repeat, declaring our borders were open, or non-existent was an act of treason — pure and simple.
