Following a humiliating trip to the EU, in which he was denounced several times, Trudeau returned to massive, spur-of-the-moment protests in Liberal Party strongholds, despite publishing his itinerary extremely late to avoid them.
The Prime Minister’s itinerary is typically available to the public, but yesterday, it left out where and when his meetings were taking place.
A committed group of protestors still managed to find out where Trudeau was going before he pulled into the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Vancouver.
“Shame on you! Shame on you,” hundreds of protestors chanted as Trudeau sat in his motorcade, shocked. He apparently waved back. A freedom convoy of trucks and plenty of Canadian flags could be seen.
Protesters were angry the unvaccinated Canadians are still not allowed to leave their own country due to Trudeau’s mandate that he continues to uphold, despite most other countries dropping theirs.
Run, or Hide?
It seems Trudeau’s strategy is to avoid the citizens he serves whenever possible. Indeed, he can’t go anywhere these days without being met by hundreds or thousands of protestors.
During the Freedom Convoy protest, after finally arriving in Ottawa, Trudeau claimed he was isolating at home because he tested positive for covid — convenient timing, to say the least, especially considering he’s triple-vaccinated.
Last week, during what would have been his second glam tour in Europe, he was called a “disgrace to democracy” and a “dictator” by politicians in the EU.
Three weeks ago, to avoid protestors in England, he had to sneak in the back door when visiting Boris Johnson.
With Trudeau loathed nationally and on the international stage, it’s a wonder whether he’ll be able to go anywhere without being confronted by massive protests sympathetic to truckers that stood up to him during the Ottawa protests. Only time will tell, but things certainly aren’t looking up for Trudeau.
