Justin Trudeau Kneels Before Political Correctness
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau kneeled at a protest against racism and police brutality in Ottawa on June 5, 2020.
No Peace Until Justice organized the event at Ottawa’s Parliament’s Peace Tower. The event came in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody last week.
The death of Floyd has catalyzed dozens of protests in America and throughout the world.
Trudeau’s behavior lies in stark contrast to President Donald Trump, who has pushed for law enforcement to take tougher action against rioters and looters.
When recently questioned about Trump’s threats to bring in the military to quell rioting and looting, Trudeau paused for 20 seconds before declaring that Canada was watching in “horror and consternation.”
“It is a time for us as Canadians to recognize that we, too, have our challenges,” Trudeau declared on June 3, 2020. “There is systemic racism in Canada.”
CBC reported that Chantel Moore, a 26-year-old indigenous woman, was shot by Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Edmundston, New Brunswick, on June 4 during a welfare check.
“Far too many Canadians feel fear and anxiety at the sight of a law enforcement officer,” Trudeau said to reporters in Ottawa, according to a Reuters report. “Over the past weeks we’ve seen a large number of Canadians suddenly awaken to the fact that discrimination is a lived reality for far too many of our fellow citizens.”
Canada is the modern-day embodiment Western-style political correctness.
Unlike the U.S., which protects the right to bear arms, Canada recently banned so-called “assault weapons” The country is clearly one of the most politically correct in the globe, which is only reinforced by Trudeau’s behavior.
