The federal Liberals always used to talk about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s “hidden agenda” to remake Canada in his image.
So today, let’s discuss Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s open agenda to remake Canada in his.
The first hint came when Trudeau told The New York Times Magazine in December, 2015, that, “there is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,” which makes us “the first postnational state.”
Trudeau did add that Canadians have “shared values” such as “openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, to be there for each other, to search for equality and justice.”
But in Trudeau’s “postnational” Canada, none of these “shared values” are important enough, apparently, for us to screen potential immigrants and refugees for, to see if they share them as well.
Remember the Liberal (and Red Tory) hysteria when Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch suggested we do that?
Once you understand this about Trudeau, everything he says and does with regard to his concept of Canada becomes understandable.
