Justin Trudeau Announcement Speech
If Justin is even partly like his father then we have a chance of not only hanging on to our Canadianism, but to also correct the damage that Harper has inflicted on the middle class, low income, the disabled like me, low income seniors, the far north, GMO, our international reputation, and most importantly our environment. This is a country that is proud and loves our natural resources. Not gas and oil, but water, trees, rocks and at every turn Harper destroys it. Just google 'Harper destruction' to read the latest or at the end of this post there is a link.
I realize Justin Trudeau is his own man but surely such a powerful, colourful and intelligent man as his father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, must have had a strong influence on his children. Let me remind you of a few things our former P.M. had to say:
Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is affected by every twitch and grunt.
Addressing the Press Club in Washington, D.C. (25 March 1969)
Canada regards herself as responsible to all mankind for the peculiar ecological balance that now exists so precariously in the water, ice and land areas of the Arctic archipelago. We do not doubt for a moment that the rest of the world would find us at fault, and hold us liable, should we fail to ensure adequate protection of that environment from pollution or artificial deterioration.
House of Commons Debate (24 October 1969)
Comment alleged to have been made to an opposition MP in the House of Commons, as quoted in Trudeau in Power (1971) by Walter Stewart, p. 47
Oh, I don't know...fuddle-duddle or something like that.
Comment to the media, explaining what he told the MP.
I've been called worse things by better people.
When it was reported to him that President Richard Nixon had called him an "asshole" (1971)
The next time you see Jesus Christ, ask Him what happened to the just society he promised 2,000 years ago.
Reply to a high school student's question about what happened to Trudeaus' promises of a "Just Society", Regina, Sask., (1972)
Justin appears to be a 'say it as you see it' type just as his father was which will be sure to shake up the old boys club. I am personally tired of the politically correct script full of lies that has been 'harped' to us for years. Telling us what we want to hear even though everyone knows its a lie. Justin will probably never get away from being compared to his father, but in his own right he is being heard. Do a search for him at YouTube to listen to what he has to say. Canada needs to get rid of th e old boys politics and step into this century. I think it is horrible that it's 2012 and we have a prime minister who stills takes with one hand and lies with the other while at every turn destroying our environment. I could post my list of Harper complaints like like Tar sands, super prisons, GMO corn, destruction of our environment, bad mistakes in Iran, making it harder financially on the disadvantaged.... I'm willing to bet you have your own list. Check out the latest:
