Trudeau roasted as a dictator in the EU: “We watched you trample women with horses”

Those who know what tyranny is, call out the Canadian Prime Minister

Three members of the European Parliament from Germany, Romania and Croatia give crushing opinions on Justin Trudeau.

Christina Anderson is an MdEP from Germany

MEP Cristian Terhes from Romania refused to attend Trudeau’s EU Speech:

“I refused to validate by my presence the facade of the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who gave a speech before the Plenary of the European Parliament on 23.03.2022, it was the reason for which I was not in the room when he spoke.”

“You can’t come and teach democracy lessons to Putin from the European Parliament when you trample with horse hooves your own citizens who are demanding that their fundamental rights be respected.”

“When you, a politician from the “west”, implement in your home methods of repression and the trampling of the rights of your own citizens, who demand their rights be respected, as Putin does at home, you are no better than him.”
“On the contrary, through the tyranny that you’re implementing you add deceit and hypocrisy, destroying liberty and “western” values.”
“These imposter leaders of today’s west have brought the world into the chaos we find ourselves in today, precisely because they have strayed from the values that made the “west” a free and prosperous world.”
“The departure of western leaders from these values (individual liberty, respect for rights and freedoms, etc.) not only made them lose their moral ascendancy, but allowed the rise of tyrants like Putin.”
“Between the Russian imperialist tyranny, promoted by Putin, and the neo-Marxist tyranny pretending to be progressivism promoted by the likes of Trudeau, in which people are deprived of their rights and freedoms, becoming objects of the state, I do not choose any.”
As some of you might recall Terheș was a vocal critic of Trudeau’s in Brussels when the Canadian prime minister invoked the Emergencies Act to quash the protests in Ottawa.

Mislav Kolakusic MEP from Croatia


Gives us hope. Trudeau will have hated having to sit there and listen

If only the leaders of the UK, USA and Australia had the balls to say what people who lived under or near the Iron Curtain have to say.

Keean Bexte @TheRealKeean

Trudeau is going to come home from Europe VERY angry. He was just forced to sit and listen while he was labelled a “dictator,” in front of the entire European Union, one who “trampled women with horses,” and “blocks the bank accounts of single parents.”

Trudeau’s speech itself,  is full of blame on vague “populists” who “play on people’s fears”.  It’s projection, projection all the way down…  He sees his own dark flaws and “easy solutions” in everyone else and his main form of reasoning is mere assertion with namecalling.

        Australia is on the other side of the world. Most people have no idea where it is. Or that it is a Federation of States with Premiers, like Canada and the US. Our Federal government is only about international affairs. Not health, education, police, roads, … Few overseas people could name one state in Australia. 90% of people live North of the equator and 98% live North of Australia.

        So they were unaware that in Victoria, Australia we had the longest Wuhan flu lockdown in the world.

        Or that the Victorian Premier nearly succeeded in legislatning his own private army with the ability to arrest, jail and detain people indefinitely without judicial oversight on the back of the Wuhan flu. And succeeded in extending his emergency powers to dictator level after the crisis was over. And signed a Belt and Road deal with China which was illegal as States are prohibited from signing international treaties. And his personal refusal to use the Australian army for security was directly responsible for half the deaths in Victoria.

        And Australia has been severely punished with huge trade sanctions for even asking for an investigation into the origins of Wuhan flu. The idea of a Chinese made virus which has killed 6 million people was reason to cancel anyone as a conspiracy theorist six months ago. Now it is a fact accepted by the US CDC. This virus from China turned Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews into an absolute dictator. Then he fell down some stairs. Apparently.

        Trudeau was not the first or worst. But he did show other dictators how to use Federal laws over the banking system to punish protestors. That will be copied.

              I have a T shirt from Vienna. A kangaroo with a cross through it. I often have to explain where Australia is. And many Americans have no idea, let alone those in Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Russia. It may explain why we have issued only 5,000 visas to Ukranians and the total Ukranian refugee population is 6,000,000. Australia is as much a fantasy land as the Falklands.

                Some people seem to get their jollies hanging 5H1T on American’s geographical ignorance.

                My time working and traveling in Nevada, Utah and Arizona led me to the understanding that such errors are, in most cases, a light-hearted joke on Australia, and likely a “test” of character by the responses. Such behaviour is NOT unique to the USA; traveling through South East Asia has produced some very odd conversations with the locals, who, seem to “size-up” EVERY new face in detail.

                And don’t give me the old, “Australians are too “egalitarian” to be like that” line, either.

                My experiences east of the Mississippi is limited, and only as a fast-moving tourist: so no comment here. I suspect the Australians who bag Americans for their “ignorance” may themselves have sundry deficiencies.

                Bruce, you misread me. I am not being critical at all, just realistic and informing and answering a question. Just explaining that Americans have no idea where we are. And yes, I have spent 40 years commuting to and living in America, from Colorado to New York to Texas and Illinois. Hundreds of places. The last time I landed in LA was my 58th time. Geography is a very weak subject in America to put it mildly.

                American magazine National Geographic was my favorite for decades and they complained incessantly about the amazing ignorance of Americans with geography. They tested school children regularly. Most could not name two countries in Africa between South Africa and Egypt. Few could name one. It is an amazing statement for such a highly educated country. Try Jay Leno on geography.

          “Hi Ian,
          I hope you are well and strong. I read in our local paper about the shut-down in Adelaide caused by a false report about a pizza parlor. Sounds bizarre. I hope we are able to travel in 2021. All the best, B & P.”

        I wondered the same. Surely Trudeau learnt how to use his police from Andrews and Gladys.

        BTW. What happened to the cops harassing picnickers in the park when the pole sitters were stopping traffic at Port Botany? I was sure they would just shake the ropes until the guy climbed down but no, they pussy footed for hours. It must be easier picking on old ladies.

          In Victoria and on television, the police arrested and handcuffed a pregnant Ballarat woman in front of her children, in her home and without a warrant for daring to post on Facebook. It’s not just old ladies. In Victoria under Daniel Andrews, the police watched facebook for enemies of the State.

          Yes Trudeau is a piece of work.
          The City of Ottawa asked the Canadian Army to quell the protest early on but the army said “Not Interested”.
          Rebel News said that Trudeau brought in UN troops because he could not get enough police onside. They showed pictures of uniformed officers (green uniforms, not police blue) with no badges or identification. They showed a picture of a UN plane at the Ottawa Airport.

      It baffles me that too many voters do not understand the three levels of government here and that State Governments areas of responsibility and powers for State affairs are so wide reaching, for example that Chairman’s Dan’s emergency powers were legislated in the State Parliament of Victoria and enforced by State Health, Police and Courts, etc.

      And that the National Leaders Cabinet is a Forum only and does not have the discipline and structure of a government cabinet of ministers, NLC consists only of Premiers and Prime Minister and was established, replacing COAG, to try and achieve cooperation and coordination between leaders.

        But our Prime Minister went on National TV at one of his “pressers” lately and made the statement that he would “give his permission ” for the States to drop all covid mandates if they wanted to. Seems to me ,that if you have the authority to grant permission to cease the mandates, then you must had had a similar previous authority to stop the application of them in the first place!!!!!!

    There is a reason Australian state and federal leaders and those of New Zealand don’t stand up and criticise Trudeau is because they are every bit as guilty of exactly the same behaviour as he has displayed.

        Dennis.

        I’ve posted a link to this article to you before (on michaelsmithnews.com). I wonder if you bothered reading the article?

        Scomo could have (and should have) stopped these lunatic state premiers and their “emergency powers” very early on, with section 51 of the constitution. While the article is about vaccine mandates, it is still relevant in terms of the power he actually has under the constitution. As usual, he sat on his hands – absolutely pathetic.

        If the Will Were There to End Vaccine Mandates

        Our so-called “conservative” federal government is a joke.

          Quote from your link:

          “We were surprised that Senator Eric Abetz did not cross the floor. In a press release, he argued that that he personally opposes vaccine mandates but had to abstain from voting on the grounds that Hanson’s bill was “clumsy and unlawful in that it is unconstitutional”.[1]

          Senator Abetz then explained that, according to him,

          the Bill … would seek to over-ride the states and stop funding to them if they mandate in any circumstance. Its constitutionality is highly questionable and the consequences highly disruptive

          He also contended that the Federal government does not have power to override the states on vaccine mandates”.

          The Assistant Attorney General Amanda Stoker commented on Sky News about the Federal Government attempting to legislate to overturn State legislation and her explanation was similar to what Senator Abetz said above.

          You might remember that many well informed and qualified people believed that the Constitution, constitutional laws did not permit closure of interstate borders, the Federal Government at first supported a private court application in WA but pulled out when given legal advice that the WA Government closure was justifiable, and the WA Court decided in favour of the WA Government. An appeal to the High Court following resulted in the WA Court decision being upheld.

            As I said, the article was about vaccine mandates (the failed bill) but the stuff about the constitution was relevant.

            The piece was written by people who know the law and the constitution very well. There is a heap of references and links at the end.

            Bottom line is that it outlines the fact that scomo could have done something about these power hungry state premiers. He didn’t.

              Several lawyers who are serving or former politicians were adamant that interstate border closures were unconstitutional, a WA State Court and the High Court of Australia disagreed and the WA Labor Government (and other States) kept the interstate borders closed.

              Please read what Senator Abetz said: Senator Abetz then explained that, according to him,

              “the Bill … would seek to over-ride the states and stop funding to them if they mandate in any circumstance. Its constitutionality is highly questionable and the consequences highly disruptive

              He also contended that the Federal government does not have power to override the states on vaccine mandates”.”

              The Assistant Attorney General Amanda Stoker commented on Sky News about the Federal Government attempting to legislate to overturn State legislation and her explanation was similar to what Senator Abetz said above.

                I don’t give a FFRF about Abetz or Stoker, just the references and links in the article regarding the constitution, and the credibility of the authors.

      The problem however is that many of us do not vote for Trudeau or his ilk. But the way the electoral body is set up in Canada the election is dominated by the East. I suspect if the Australian situation is similar, those voting in WA have little say in the outcome, much as does Western Canada, as the election is decided before we even eat our dinner, let alone vote.
      Canada’s electoral system has multiple parties and allows for a “minority” government to be formed. In a Democratic system that should keep the government in check, except that we have an equally far left party, the NDP (National Democratic Party – lol), the holds the balance of power. In the last federal election in Canada the Conservative Party ( = right for Canada, would be considered slightly left in the US) actually won more of the popular vote, but the Liberal party took more seats so they win. Strategically, much as I hate them, the Liberals played it well and that’s the result. But consider that Trudeau’s party obtained only about 32% of the total vote in the country.
      Short version is we are completely screwed right now in Canada. I’m hoping there’s something left when I retire (about four years out) but I’m not convinced there will be. Becoming a latter day version of Greece would probably be considered a good outcome. It’s more likely we become the truth to the conspiracy theorist version of WEF’s ideal. It’s bloody bleak.

        The future is difficult to predict because it has not happened. Lying and get caught in a lie can change political outcomes. The lawsuits are coming in the US. Hurting and killing Canadians for political reasons is a crime and will not be supported if the general population find out. This is the reason why the fake media is hiding the data and trying to stop discussions on the internet.

        The Left are getting caught in a web of lies. The CDC and all of the healthcare systems are hiding the RNA vaccine adverse effects data and are hiding the fact that Omicron is endemic and is less dangerous than the flu. Most countries no long count or try to estimate the number of Omicron cases. The UK for example today had the highest number of new daily covid cases record in the UK, based on the Zoe tracker data (more than 300k) and the lowest death rate due to covid. Omicron has defeated first release covid.

        First release covid vaccinations are not required because everyone has been or will be infected with Omicron.

        Omicron has 32 mutations on the deadly covid spike, so there is no reason to expose people to the origin deadly covid spike. Omicron is less dangerous than the flu for people who are not near death due to a comorbidity.

        Top Chinese epidemiologist Zhang Wenhong said on Chinese public media: “With this virus, alleviating fear is the first step we must take,” he said. “Omicron has become so mild, in countries that have achieved widespread vaccination and natural infection rates, it may be less deadly than even the flu.”

        https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-60762032
        Omicron vs Zero-Covid: How long can China hold on?

        Last year, top Chinese epidemiologist Zhang Wenhong suggested that China would eventually need to “co-exist” with the virus. He was met with a barrage of criticism, with some calling him a traitor, and others saying he was colluding with foreign forces to undermine China’s Covid response.

        But just this week, Dr Zhang posted another message on Chinese social media that got a very different reception. …should not be afraid to eventually move towards a more “sustainable coping strategy” in the future. …

        …”With this virus, alleviating fear is the first step we must take,” he said. “Omicron has become so mild, in countries that have achieved widespread vaccination and natural infection rates, it may be less deadly than even the flu.”

      The only reason Trudeau won the last election is because the Conservative Party Leader, Erin the Toole (He spells it O’Toole)
      was too busy chasing Liberal votes and showed no interest in Conservative values. He loved the idea of Carbon Tax, gun control,
      public-private partnerships (with subsidies), vaccine mandates, etc.

    Trudeau certainly deserves to be criticised but so do the trio Biden, Harris, and Pelosi. If Americans don’t wake up soon and at least curtail their insanity at the coming mid-term elections in a big way then the US might as well save billions of lives and surrender to both Russia and China before it all goes awry in a terrible fashion.

    As with my post yesterday this is all about freedom to protest, and the government’s response to those protests. The consensus then was and is, it is the subject of the protest which defines its legitimacy. Thus, on this site, the protesters that Trudeau shut down were deemed legitimate and therefore he acted as an authoritarian.

    All well and good.

    My problem remains: either all protests are legitimate or none are. The right to protest I can not be revoked just because one group does not like the reason for that protest, nor should authorities treat one group of protestors differently to another, eg Knitting Nannas in Queensland

      Did these truckers chain themselves to infrastructure? NO.
      Did they block peoples access to their place of work? NO.
      In fact they actually intentionally left routes for access for people and goods.

      What the Botany protestors is doing is intentionally block access to workers and goods, as an act of spite.

      Seems that you cannot see the difference, even in the method of protest, through your far-left anti-freedom tunnel vision.

      Yes you certainly do have a problem… with your backwards view of freedom and humanity.

      PF, you know very well that all protests are not equal, the protesters might think they are justified but when they deliberately inconvenience everyday folk going about their daily life, it becomes too much.
      They are free to protest by holding placards, hanging banners, chanting, etc, but blocking rail lines and roads isn’t part of our ‘freedoms’.

    The massive and un-Australian human rights violations that occurred in Australia during the lockdowns and which continue (e.g. ongoing discrimination against the unvaxxed including prohibition on even leaving the country) have also caused Australia to lose all credibility when criticising human rights violations in other dictatorships. The Australian PM even remained silent about numerous state violations of human rights. And he even lied when he said there were no compulsory covid injection mandates.

    Australian politicians now look to China for inspiration for “public order” doctrine, not traditional Australian or Western values.

        Our PM and others such as the Federal Minister for Health often made requests for State imposed lockdowns, restrictions, interstate border closures, to be lifted. They were financing support for employers and employees and well understood the damage to the economy taking place and especially for small to medium businesses much longer term problems.

        However, the Leaders, notably Labor State Premiers chose the blame game instead as a cover for what they were doing to people. In the beginning restrictions were needed but as time passed the lockdowns and restrictions were continued beyond reason, NSW Coalition Government one not in that group.

        At this time with news about bullying within Labor commentators have been pointing out how silent the left leaning media is about the late Senator Kitching’s bullying allegations against the “mean girls” as she named them. A perfect example of why many Australians are unaware of most initiatives of the Federal Government but are confronted with anything and everything Labor can beat up for political point scoring.

      As even reported by CNN from 21 December 2021:

      But he (PM Scott Morrison) said one key message he’ll be telling state premiers is a return to lockdowns, tight social restrictions and fines for violating them is not the answer.

      “We have got to get past the heavy hand of government and we’ve got to treat Australians as adults,” Morrison said at a news conference in Queensland Tuesday. “We have to move from a culture of mandates to a culture of responsibility. That’s how we live with the virus into the future.”

      Too much State power is what caused the problem – not necessarily the PM not acting. The configuration of the responsible parties for health and State admin allowed the States to make their own rules entirely to the political benefit of each State Government. Effectively the PM was powerless since he could not overrule the States but rather could only request them to be reasonable.

The tyrants who call the shots need to remember we have good memories and we vote. We had the most absurd year here in 2021 with snap lockdowns for days because of one person, borders closed for ages, treated like enemies in our own country. No even the USA closed borders but our lot did. Hey we don’t have to look at Canada for the use of horses against normal citizens, it happened here plus the weapons used against peaceful protesters in Canberra was a violation of human rights. Don’t anyone take your eyes off what is happening in Australia as the tyrants have no plans for normality.

    Here in AU we have our own despots. Anna in QLD is determined to punish those who did not rush forward to accept the poison death shots, and desperate to implement a permanent state of emergency. Dan Andrews is similar.

And the worst for last, our press are completely disgusting and need to be locked up. They enable and barrack for ever more horrific restrictions and refuse to even contemplate what the end point of all of this is – the worst ever dictatorship in history, with control like never seen before.

    My friends and I can see this plain as day. Our moral compass is screaming about the way we have completely evil policies and leaders in place, and a very dangerous situation upon us.

      The MSM is culpable in all of this tyranny.

      They have suppressed even the idea of early treatment for Covid, demonized eminent qualified professors and doctors and supported the propaganda endlessly. Remember that Hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work and Ivermectin is poisonous “horse paste”. This from “journalists” that are so full of themselves I’m surprised they just don’t spontaneously explode. It is obvious that NONE of these “journalists” have a clue AND keep supporting the government propaganda – all thye need to do is look up the web and search for Ivermectin AND the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and they would see the truth – proof that they are ALL useless!

      New scares already started: winter coming along with a SUPER DANGEROUS FLU that’s going to kill us all and of course TB is going to invade Australia again and kill the rest. They can’t operate day to day without a new scare. 🙁

      But, don’t get me started on ScoMo – he is a WEF sellout and a traitor to every Australian citizen. Greg Hunt is just as bad, if not worse, BOTH graduates of the WEF totalitarian training school.

      Anyone who supports this BS is pure EVIL – nothing less.

      Just to point out my view of any further restrictions: I will NEVER have a booster (FORCED to have the first two because of work) OR be locked down OR check in to anywhere EVER AGAIN as long as my butt points south. They can do whatever they want to me – my whole family fought in both wars for the freedoms we have enjoyed till now – I WON’T give them up EVER.

          On the other hand of course TB has been closely studied for more than 100 years and yet no one has found a permanent cure or preventative treatment. ( vaccination is highlly effective but not quite 100% TB also has other vectors that support it such as cattle ) This auotmatically leads me to believe that six months of study on a completely new disease will allow a miraculous cure to be found “just like that”

          As Sambar says, that was then.

          My dad had a retirement job doing health checks on prospective immigrants for the (federal) Health Dept. One young african man he checked out was riddled with tuberculosis. Naturally, he was rejected in the strongest terms. About a week later, this was overruled by ministerial decree. Dad was disgusted.

          That was in the early ’90s when the tide had been going out on public health for about 20 years. By the time COVID-19 hit, a further 25 years of decline left us with officials without a clue about disease control, but their training in passive smoking and sugary drinks equipped them very well for nagging.

      In the book, Hayek “[warns] of the danger of tyranny that inevitably results from government control of economic decision-making through central planning.” He further argues that the abandonment of individualism and classical liberalism inevitably leads to a loss of freedom, the creation of an oppressive society, the tyranny of a dictator, and the serfdom of the individual.”

It makes Watergate look like kindergarten, with conspiracy from the former Secretary of State, Senior FBI officials and a cast of hundreds who wanted Hillary elected like 98% of Washington, DC. About 40 people went to jail over Watergate. This might be many more, if the DOJ and State Department and FBI run for cover and stop hiding the guilty.

      And the tragedy of Ukraine today is connected to this commercial exploitation of Ukraine and endless attacks on Russia and partnership with China.

          So do I, the cash economy has become redundant for all intents and purposes as the Age of Information Technology expands, internet banking for example, personal cheques are now a rarity and most financial transactions are digital.

          Cash is hoarded and the loss of circulation is a money supply issue, drug criminals are suspected of hoarding huge amounts of cash they don’t need and can’t spend but also can’t admit to having. No cash and all transactions are accounted for, no illegal tax avoidance for example.

          I realise that many older people are frightened by digital, just as many cannot use an ATM or even use all of the technology on their mobile device (phone) and PC if they have one.

          But cash is now being phased out gradually globally like it or not.

          Most people now pay with a mobile phone app or a debit card instead of cash, especially younger people who have grown up with technology.

          In 2007 the unions spent millions of dollars on a scare campaign against the Howard Government’s Work Choices industrial relations legislation, yet anybody who understood IR also realised that the IT Age meant more self employed contractors and fewer employees, people with internet businesses, and much more. The book The Sovereign Individual written in the late 1990s is worth reading. Work Choices was a blueprint for the future but the unions cannot control self employed contractors, in fact their membership in the private sector has been falling for decades, so of course Work Choices was not to the union’s liking. Digital transactions are also the future.

    Canada is one thing, and the USA is another one just as bad. In the USA, freedom of speech is only for speech that is in line with the leftist marxists behind the President. Cancellation is provided by big media that is one of the enforcement agencies. In the USA people were held in prison without charge for prolonged periods as punishment. Retired General Flynn was held in solitary confinement and pressured to tell lies to get Trump. He was financially destroyed by the system. In the USA we have witnessed the politicisation of the DOJ, the FBI, the Courts and the Security agencies.

    In the USA and Australia, agents of AGW have been protected by politicians in enforcement of an unproven pseudoscience theory that is allowed to destroy our ff energy systems and push us into a economy destroying renewable energy replacement system which is proven not to work. We are ruled by a combination of undemocratic Big Business wielding its power over employment, and fleecing the community to profit from the renewables system. Our value systems are being destroyed with the assistance of the Courts.

    Before the EU and ourselves throw stones at Canada, we need to look at our own current systems that are destroying Democracies everywhere. We are only different from Russia and China in that we aren’t yet ruled by despots – leave that to the EU idea of ‘the big reset’ where an undemocratic cabal resembling the EU commission dreams of ruling the West with no ownership of anything for we the peasants to make us ‘happy. Instead we are ruled by semidespotic governments, Big Media and Big Businesses and our own form of oligarchs. Remember, even Tony Abbott said freedom of speech is of secondary importance, and Morrison has said something similar ie they didn’t and don’t have the guts to take on the progressives in their own Party. That lack of fortitude looks like taking Australia further down the current antidemocratic path by a labor government coming in May (according to the polls, unbelievably)

      Australia has developed politically into a broad church of left and right mixed between the political parties, Union controlled Labor far-left dominates that side and the unions also support the Greens who are of course far-left too.

      On the Liberal side with some National supporters in the Coalition are the LINO left (Liberal In Name Only) who appear to be positioned between the Labor centre-left and Labor far-left and support globalism etc.

      Then there are the middle ground where most Australians are positioned according to surveys, and we have always been. The not on the left politicians are centre-left (Labor) and centre-right (Liberal & National) and in between on the fence, meaning could easily be a member of either major side, and they get on with one another, the late Senator Kimberley Kitching and former Labor Opposition Leader Latham are two of many examples, and he is now a One Nation member.

      The left brands any MP not on their side as untrustworthy and make them targets for denigration, and we voters cannot rely on many media outlets to explain the facts, indeed they often fail to report on anything that voters might give a tick.

    Getting clearer than the mRNA vaccines are doing far more harm than good, and that no one in government gives a damn because biotech involves so much money. That spells genocide due to greed.

    “Why is it that the same people who have been lecturing me for the past two years about ‘the science’ can’t tell me what a woman is? (Paul Joseph Watson)

    There is nothing more confounding to humanity than duplicity. There are now far too many inconsistencies and untruths being promulgated by our so called democratic leaders for any of us to continue to believe a word of what they say.

    Is it time for common sense to invade our democracies, our media, our professional and scientific institutions, our academia and ensure they are never again allowed to become agencies of pure propaganda against the interests of freedom of choice? Is it time to truly protect our children from being exposed to the bully lecturing a class rather than the bully sitting at a desk in a class?

    We need to choose while we still can.

    How Justine Trudeau used a behavioural science “Nudge Unit” to “play on people’s fears” as a way to win populist support for authoritinarian policies. Read “A State of Fear” by Laura Dodsworth, page 65. In Canada, the “Toronto Star” reported that Ottawa’s behavioural science ‘nudge unit’ was mostly operating ‘under the radar’ producing campaigns to gain compliance with public health measures, helping politicians with their speeches and collecting data. The article accurately observed that a ‘massive social-science experiment that has taken place over the planet’ had ‘given government important clues on how to modify citizens behaviour for other big global issues such as climate change’.

    Same old same old. I notice that Mr Peter Fitzroy is still the same intellectually challenged individual he has always been. Trying to equate the Blockade Trash with Canadian truckers… what a joke!!

    When I hear the pretentious fascists of the EU (correctly) calling out Trudeau for his fascism, I can’t help but imagine that they are secretly grateful that he is taking the heat off of them, and giving them the opportunity to look good by comparison.
