Trudeau flies jet fuel-guzzling behemoth to COP26 — and he wasn’t even onboard

PM Justin Trudeau has once again topped his personal record of hypocrisy by sending a jet fuel-guzzling behemoth to the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

Some may say this is justifiable. After all, Trudeau needs to get there somehow, right? There’s only one problem: he wasn’t even aboard the jet when it touched down.

As the Toronto Sun’s Bryan Passifiume noted on Twitter, “I’m not sure why #COP26 would require a Canadian strategic airlift, but it’s just arrived in Glasgow.”

We know that Trudeau wasn’t on the jet because he was busy announcing his new cabinet of Liberal insiders.

Moreover, COP26 doesn’t begin until October 31, and Trudeau is planning a quick trip to Rome before that.

In April, the Prime Minister’s Office wrote, “During today’s Leaders Summit on Climate, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, announced that Canada will enhance our emissions reduction target under the Paris Agreement – known as a Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) – by 40-45% below 2005 levels, by 2030. As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, Canada’s NDC reflects its highest possible ambition in light of its current national circumstances.”

According to Trudeau, “Canada understands that if you don’t have a plan to tackle climate change, then you don’t have a plan to create jobs and economic growth. Canada is a committed partner in the global fight against climate change, and together we will build a cleaner and more prosperous future for all.”

This statement runs in stark contrast to his behaviour. It is a wonder how he believes that Canada will meet these ambitious climate goals when their Prime Minister is sending jets every which way without justifiable purpose, especially if he is supposed to lead the charge by example.

It must be one of those ‘do as I say, not as I do’ situations. Travel for me, but not for thee.
