Justin Trudeau and the New and Better Canada
Isn't it great that after all the challenges he has had to face since he came to power, and the way the corporate media has gone after him, that Justin Trudeau is still incredibly popular.
In Canada and all over the world.
Have you seen the news from Canada lately? It’s all good. Canadians are currently basking in the glow of the world’s handsomest prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who has just appointed a cabinet we can only dream of.
Imagine, the folks in charge of protecting the land and its people are the original owners. Can you handle it? There’s more. The minister for sport and disabilities is a visually impaired Paralympian. Logic and experience? Please make the acquaintance of politics.
Isn't this a great sign that our Canada is back?
The Prime Minister and the Premiers meeting after almost seven years, and being promised a Canadian approach to climate change.
"We'll demonstrate that we are serious about climate change … This means making decisions based on science, it means reducing carbon emissions, including through carbon pricing towards a climate resilient economy. It means collaborating with our provincial and territorial partners, supporting climate change efforts in developing countries and investing in sustainable economic prosperity."
Isn't it awesome to see scientists unmuzzled at last? Free to brief us on the threat of global warming.
Telling the truth Stephen Harper wanted suppressed...
Isn't it amazing how Justin Trudeau has managed to inspire and motivate the so-called millennial generation?
Trudeau is popular with young people. It doesn’t sound like an especially shocking result; after all, we’re taking about a leader whose penchant for political correctness is matched only by his prowess at pummelling conservatives in the boxing ring. But millennial support for the PM is uniquely interesting in this instance, because of when the Forum Research poll was conducted — Nov. 17. That’s only four days after Islamic State militants murdered at least 130 people in Paris.
Revealing why so many of them find his message attractive at a time when war fever is sweeping the world.
Perhaps younger Canadians simply don’t care for bold declarative statements and hawkish policy in times of political unrest. Perhaps what many older Canadians perceive as moral relativism in Trudeau’s softer foreign policy, younger Canadians perceive as virtue and strength.
Which may be his greatest achievement, because it ensures that the future belongs to us, and can only reinforce our precious Canadian values.
The ones we fought so hard to save from the clutches of this depraved leader...
Who tried so hard to destroy them.
You know, Justin Trudeau has only been in power for a few weeks, there are many challenges ahead, and as I've mentioned before I didn't vote for him.
But in a country where many people are notoriously miserly with their praise, or too quick to tear others down, I have to give Justin credit for getting off to an excellent start.
And for making me feel like I'm living in my kind of Canada again.
When I see him on TV I have to pinch myself to believe that he's our Prime Minister.
And when it sinks in, I can't help but smile.
And of course I can't wait until he meets the Queen tomorrow...
Sunny days are here again, there is light where once there was darkness.
Even Neil Young has found his Canada again.
And if I could ask him to play a song for me it would probably be this one...
Yup. Rockin' in the free world.
And in the Great White North.
It's starting to look a lot like Canada again...
