After wasting hundreds of millions of Canadian taxpayer dollars abroad, PM Justin Trudeau has returned just in time for a Canada Day photo-op.
In his official Canada Day message released early this morning, Trudeau suggested that even if you’ve only been here for a week, you’re as much a part of Canada as people whose families have been here for generations, adding that Canada is strong “because of our diversity.”
“Canada is home to over 38 million people: Canadians who live in cities and towns – big and small; people who are indigenous to this land; and those who’ve been here for weeks, months, years, or for generations,” Trudeau began.
“Canada is strong because of our diversity,” he continued. “No matter what our faith is, [or] where we were born… we are all equal members of this great country.”
Trudeau continued, saying that while it’s okay to celebrate Canada, there’s some work that could be done due to our “historic wrongs.” A remedy for these supposed wrongs that Trudeau offered was taking in more refugees, which apparently is how Canadians “deliver on [our] values.”
“Today, we celebrate the place we all call home. I know for some, our country’s historic wrongs can make that difficult,” Trudeau said. “But while we can’t change history, we can put in the work to build a better future; one that reflects our values of hope, resilience, kindness, respect, and generosity.”
“Generation after generation, Canadians have shown that we can deliver on those values. We did it when we adopted our charter in 1982, we did it when we took care of each other during the pandemic, and we do it every day when we welcome refugees with open arms.”
Trudeau’s speech comes after a lengthy trip abroad in which he gave Ukraine $350 million and said that the best use of Canadian weaponry is just to give it to Ukraine while our military goes underfunded.
“Stocks for the Canadian military will be replenished as quickly as possible. We need to make sure that the women and men of the Canadian Forces have the equipment they need to continue their mission and step up as necessary,” Trudeau said while speaking at the NATO leaders summit in Madrid.
“We also recognize that the best use, right now, of things like howitzers and sniper rifles and all of the other equipment we’ve been sending to Ukraine — the best use for Canadian security, for geopolitical stability — is to put them in the hands of Ukrainians.
Besides the massive payday that Trudeau gave Ukraine, he also spent promised $250 million in taxpayer money to address global food security, primarily in African countries, while speaking in Rwanda.
“While participating at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kigali, Rwanda, Prime Minister Trudeau today announced $250 million to help address the global food security crisis. This funding will address the increasing global food and nutrition needs — especially for the most vulnerable and with a focus in Sub-Saharan Africa,” a news release from the Prime Minister’s Office reads.
As per the news release, this wasn’t the end of Trudeau’s spending abroad to address global food security rather than Canada’s food security. This quarter of a billion dollars is on top of $514.5 million spent earlier this year on “urgent humanitarian food and nutrition assistance.”
Meanwhile, back in Canada, 1-in-5 Canadians say they’ll likely have to rely on food banks this year to feed their families.
This should be a disgrace to any Prime Minister, but Trudeau has yet to address the disturbing trend, clearly finding his international friends more worthy of aid.
