You know, this is starting to look like a pattern. The Toronto Star is warning the Wynne Liberals not to be so arrogant, and the Globe and Mail is warning PM Justin Trudeau that their government arrogance will inevitably be their downfall!
This is so great, I can't believe it's in the Globe.
Do you think any of the Liberals even know what 'hubris' means? That's a pretty big word for these numbskulls.
I'm enjoying these paragraphs so much that I am posting them here.
Read the whole thing.
"The Trudeau government’s new policy in Iran and Syria, for instance, has nothing to do with “what Canada is all about.” It is, rather, the direct outcome of the Liberal Party’s need to differentiate itself from the Conservatives during the election campaign. It is Canada’s new policy because the Liberals are the government and they get to set policy; it is not inherently Canadian any more than the previous policy was un-Canadian. Policy is good, bad or indifferent. It doesn’t have a national identity."
"There are 5.6 million Canadians who voted Conservative in the general election. They and their values, biases and beliefs are no less Canadian than those of the 6.9 million who voted Liberal. The same goes for the 3.5 million who voted NDP."
"The Liberal Party swears fealty to diversity and is obliged in its current role as the ruling party to represent everyone in the country. But too often the Trudeau government resorts in its messaging to the not-so-subtle implication that there is only one “Canadian” way to do things, and that it knows what it is."
"That hubris was the downfall of Canada’s so-called “natural-governing party” in the past, and probably will be again."
Cannot happen soon enough.
