Trudeau Has Basically Appointed Chrystia Freeland As Prime Minister

She’s ‘lead minister’ dealing with all other ministers. Almost sounds like a ‘prime’ minister…

Justin Trudeau may be subtly acknowledging that he’s not up to the job of being PM.

That’s what people are starting to notice after he appointed Chrystia Freeland as Deputy PM, and then gave her a whole bunch of new roles.

Among those roles are as “implementer-in-chief,” taking the lead on files dealing with Canada’s provinces and Indigenous Canadians, being the lead on all files dealing with other ministers.

That’s quite a lot…

It’s also basically the job description of the PM.

Freeland is in charge of getting things done, dealing with other ministers, and dealing with the provinces and Indigenous governments.

That really sounds like a Prime Minister.

The question then is what Trudeau has left to do.

And the answer is not much.

This may be a tacit acknowledgement by Trudeau and his inner-circle that he really isn’t up to the task of being PM, and that he’ll now transition to more of a ‘mascot’ role, attending the party fundraising circuit and being rolled out to cry every once in a while.

Trudeau is a very-much weakened political figure who really should have been defeated in the 2019 campaign. Only a boring Conservative leader and the complicity of the establishment press kept Trudeau in power with a minority government, and the more Canadians saw him in office the less popular he got.

Now, many of the key reigns of government power are being transferred to Chrystia Freeland, leaving Trudeau in an increasingly ceremonial role. And yet, even a diminished Trudeau will manage to cause continuing damage.

They are hiding him because he is an embarrassment to the country.
Now his job is truly ceremonial, the way he likes it.
Enough already.

Nothing surprising here. Being Prime Minister was cutting into Justin’s leisure time. Now he gets to be paid handsomely to vacation, party, and consume.

If JT continues his deconstruction of Canada and Canadian values, there won’t be much to wake up to.

Dumb and Dumber … Freeland is as useless as Trudeau. By delegating to her, she will take the heat when things go wrong. Does Trudeau really think this will improve his ratings?

We don’t want Trudeau and we don’t want Freeland. Both look and act like idiots, especially with the leaders of other countries. We have been a laughing stock with the world with Trudeau, now it is doubled down. He put her in this position so he wouldn’t have to deal with the questions and jeers, she can have it, right. And have it she will, but so will he. Brother, may God help us here in Canada, please. Amen.

Now he gets to spend more time at what he hopes will be his new job, at the UN. He fits right in with all the lying, stealing members there.

Maybe he’s grooming her to take over like Mulroney did with Kim Cambell just before he jumped ship.

So now we have to pay two of them to posture, scold, and work on nothing but the ruination of the country. Useless twits.

I find almost everything Trudeau does and Liberals support….very disturbing. If Trudeau handed the majority of his duties over to Freeland…then the question is…why did he run in the first place? He expected to win with a majority, just like the last time. People did not vote for Freeland…they voted for Trudeau. I believe some of this is because he is now reduced to a minority government and he might be feeling betrayed…so why put in the effort if no one appreciates him. Also, I believe Trudeau is lazy when it comes down to being a good Prime Minister and… Read more »
