Brought out Thousands who Might not have Voted
There is an unsavory and slickster component that lurks inside the Trudeau DNA . DNA, deoxyribonucleic acid, is the self-replicating material that has inflicted a second generation conniving, scheming, manipulative Trudeau hucksters onto Canada. Though, in honesty hundreds (thousands) of Canadians share equal blame for electing an array of 184 Liberals to parliament.
Therein exists a vicious Machiavellian (unscrupulous) willingness to engage in anything available to achieve power. In the unseemly world of Justin Trudeau, it seems this individual possesses such a sense of entitlement that anything (everything) used to attain power is perfectly acceptable and, in fact desirable. In Trudeau’s child-like world, the end result (victory) can justify any means used to attain his destiny. And,,,,, Canadians are only now beginning to look through a clear lens at exactly what has been created by way of their own free choices at the polls last fall.
Analysis provided by CBC reveals the details of how Trudeau and his principal advisor Gerry Butts pulled off what amounts to the largest scam ever to be inflicted on a civilized and democratic nation. Not only was an individual (Trudeau) handed the keys to absolute power in Canada for the next four years, time will gradually reveal that among Trudeau’s caucus exists several individuals who most would consider unsavory and unworthy of any public office.
The New Vote
The Liberal campaign team recognized at the outset that they lacked any elements of ethics based platform or policy. Though many Canadian families were struggling with their own internal economic issues, the Trudeau recognized opportunity and used individual aspirations in a callous manner to achieve “real change”. Let’s be honest: in the Trudeau lexicon, “real change” only means one thing – changing the seating in parliament and permitting Justin Trudeau to fulfill his personal fantasy.
The CBC report (“Going deeper into Canada’s 2015 federal election results” written by Daniel Schwartz; Oct 23, 2015) drilled down in the analysis of exactly how Trudeau snuck into office. Analyses of that report are stark and worrisome. The report shows that the Liberals increased their vote count by almost 4.9 million votes since the previous election.
That type of vote increase (at first thought) might indicate that Canadian voters were turning out at the polling stations to vote for (his words) “Real Change”. On second reading of the report, it become abundantly clear that the public yearning for “Real Change” was not nearly even remotely as deeply rooted as claimed. In truth; the existing Canadian Conservative party only saw a marginal (about 55 thousand total) vote shrinkage. In fact, the total vote shrinkage for the CPC, NDP and Bloc amounted to less than one quarter (just over a million votes) of the actual Liberal increase (4.9 million).
Something funny going on? Not really. The Liberal team focused on convincing many who would not have bothered to vote to go the polls and help elect 184 Liberals to parliament. It mattered not that in this array of 184 were some pretty unsavory men and women. The Liberal focused its energy, money and time on two things: bring out the new vote and fabricating the notion that people wanted the existing (CPC, Harper) out of office. Refer to the CBC report and you will find that Canadians were not nearly as unhappy with the Harper government as Butts and Trudeau had spun things.
However, in terms of bringing out “new vote” the Liberals were very successful. They had found a winning formula. Where the other parties proposed platform items that had substance and spoke about job creation and debt management, the Liberals chose to divide and conquer.
Something for Everyone? Not really.
The Liberals ghettoized the Canadian political landscape. In a diverse, multi-cultured country such as Canada it goes without saying that each of the other parties reached out to first and second generation new Canadians. In some ridings that group of constituents is numerically large. How effective was the Liberal outreach? In the municipality where I live, about 40% of the residents have roots from south Asian (India, Pakistan mainly). In other words, out of a municipal population of 500,000 (plus) over 300,000 are NOT of South Asian origin. When the votes were tallied on Election Day all five of Brampton’s sitting Members of Parliament were first or second generation Canadians from India.
While the result must have pleased Trudeau and (certainly) made 5 aspiring politicians seem to feel that they had just purchased a winning lottery ticket, I am unsure that a healthy message as being transmitted to the youth in the South Asian Diaspora in this municipality where young people certainly must conclude that their future in Canada will be determined by race or creed rather than ability. In essence, Trudeau has stigmatized and ghettoized new Canadians in this area while alienating others.
The callous heartlessness used by Trudeau to swing Muslim voters his way in a neighboring community resulted in a known Islamist (with Hamas leanings) elected.
But Trudeau sought more than pocket ethnic votes and recognized that there was a large disinterest among young voters especially those less than 35 years old. The marijuana issue was quickly latched onto by Trudeau who promised to make the drug legal thus appealing to many in the avant-garde crowd who decided to vote in order to get easily available dope without police problems.
The marijuana issue stands out as among the most blatant and shameless scams used in the past election. In review of the existing laws, it becomes clear and evident that the type of change in pot law (in Canada) was almost impossible. I can only conclude that the Trudeau central campaign strategists never bothered to study the issue – including the legal framework and simply tossed pot onto the table as a vote gimmick.
Here’s the Problem with Legalizing Pot
Errol Mendes, a constitutional and international law expert at the University of Ottawa, says the government faces a long, hard slog in the global arena before it can legalize pot at home. While Trudeau appears to be leading a head-long charge into the realm of legal marijuana possession and use in Canada, the trend in Europe is headed in the opposite direction.
The EU, the Council Resolution on cannabis adopted in 2004 (CORDROGUE 59) requests Member States to take measures to discourage personal use of cannabis, such as enhancing the communication with cannabis users especially the very young, to inform and train parents, teachers, media professionals, prison staff and police officers, and to promote networking among health and education professionals on cannabis-related issues. The Council also invites Member States to take measures against Internet sites providing information on cultivation and promoting use of cannabis[i].
Mendes went on to state, “It will be an ongoing dialogue which has to be dealt with at the highest levels, and it’s not going to be an easy one, and it’s not going to be a quick one either. It’s going to take many years.”
The Liberal policy means that Canada will have to amend its participation in three international conventions:
- The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961, as amended by the 1972 Protocol;
- The Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971;
- The United Nations Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances of 1988.
All three require the criminalization of possession and production of cannabis. Thus, Justin Trudeau’s pro-pot scheme would put Canada at odds with those European friends he attempted to make recently at Davos. For individual Canadians intending to travel, may make any Canadian immediately suspect upon arrival in any number of countries – including the USA.
Mendes warned that “As part of examining legalization of cannabis possession and production, Canada will need to explore how to inform the international community and will have to take the steps needed to adjust its obligations under these conventions.”
Like just about everything Justin Trudeau does or says, you can count on one thing: it has never been thought out in an adult-like manner and is nothing to be taken too seriously.
