MONTREAL — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the walking embodiment of supine wokeism.
Trudeau is best described as a fountain of conglomerated progressive talking points, perhaps best illustrated by a 2018 incident in which his aversion to gendered language spawned the term “peoplekind,” a term presumably used as an etymological smoke signal for weirdos.
And earlier this year, in a move best described as an appropriation of the American Democratic Party’s affinity for historical revisionism, he publicly acknowledged Canada — to whom he is bound to represent and to whose parliament he has been duly elected — to be a genocidal state.
In addition to this, Canadian COVID policy has been among the Western world’s most draconian. Ranging from the complete lockdown of the U.S. border to state-mandated quarantines for international travelers, these exorbitant restrictions were enacted as Trudeau made public calls to “re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”
However, after six years at the head of the nation’s government, it seems as if Canadians may just have had enough of him.
Last month, Trudeau called a federal election for Sept. 20 — however, this was at a time during which general approval for his government and its handling of the pandemic seemed relatively high.
However, several recent polls have shown Trudeau’s Liberal Party trailing by significant (yet still surmountable) margins. The liberals currently control the House of Commons, holding a plurality of 157 seats to the Conservative Party’s 121.
The Nanos Research survey for CTV put the Conservatives on 35.7% public support, with the liberals on 30.7% and the smaller left-leaning New Democrats on 18.3%. An Ekos poll published late Thursday puts the Conservatives at 35.5% versus 30.7% for the liberals.
Should these numbers hold, the Conservatives will gain control of the House of Commons, and the party’s leader, MP Erin O’Toole, will presumably assume Trudeau’s position as head of state.
